Hey look it’s the Republican plan finally…
House Republicans on Monday introduced a counter-offer to President Barack Obama’s proposed solution to the so-called fiscal cliff, trumpeting that the proposal would not raise tax rates on personal income. The plan does, however, include a sizeable tax hike.

Twenty five percent of registered Republicans want their state to secede from the United States
