Reid Demands Trillion Dollar Tax Hike After Meeting with Obama..

"With the September debt ceiling debate coming up, Harry Reid is pushing Obama’s tax hikes as part of any deal. He said late Thursday that he wants no part of tax reform unless he gets $1 trillion in tax hikes. He also said that Obama rejected the bipartisan pay-as-you-go spending plan. It is reasonable to assume that Obama is pulling the strings and wants his trillion dollar tax increases with no strings attached".
It must be Groundhog Day.
"via roll call"
"The bipartisan effort to overhaul the nation’s tax code isn’t getting the warmest response from the Senate Democratic leadership".

Starting with Monday night's PCW Extreme Political TV:

Sarah Palin in black leather.

In the battle of political mascots, Scabby the Rat (D) took on the Republican's Rich the Fat Union Thug and both felt the wrath of Charlie Blackwell and his Les Miserables.

What else do Sarah Palin and Scott Walker have in common?

Politics 101: Don't try to rewrite history with someone who made it

And publicly sparring with the backers of Take Back Toledo as well as leading the effort to remove Jim Hartung from the Port Authority.
