Party of Entitled Rich Threatens Economy
(3 comments) Republicans, the party of the nation's entitled rich, are holding a knife to the throat of America's frail recovery. The GOP sore losers have America up against a wall.

Republicans don't care that an even larger majority - 60 percent - told election day pollsters they wanted those taxes raised.
