done but the tea party is mad at hell!
Zeleny: John Boehner is finally fed
up with the stupidity of the tea party

what they are talking about
and have no credibility

the tea partiers are nuts!

scared by the shutdown and threat of default
Roberts: it's sad the the tea party
has poisoned the happy cocktail
parties of Washington DC
Navarro: we hate the tea party
Reich: can we talk about the substance
of the budget deal or just the horse race?
Karl: horse race
Roberts: horse race
Reich: it cut benefits for the poor
Karl: also it does cut the debt enough?
Roberts: yes but it prevents more crises
so we can have a happy christmas
and and to defense spending which
is good for the Beltway
Reich: it also hurts the poor
Karl: is the budget a failure for Obama?
Roberts: no because now Obama
can pivot to immigration

Karl: with a path to citizenship?
Navarro: John Boehner looks like
he might want to try this
Roberts: I love compromise
Reich: bullshit – Republicans hate immigrants
Navarro: maybe but some Republicans
realize they need this to save the party
Gingrich: Chris Christie got the Latino vote!
Karl: can he get the GOP nomination
Navarro: yes – if he bullies enough people
Karl: PolitiFact gave it's Lie of the Year
to Obama for saying if you like your
plan you can keep it
Reich: who cares – a year from now
Obamacare will be a huge success
Gingrich: 5 million people have lost
their insurance because of Obama –
they will show up to emergency room
and die because they have no health care
Roberts: I don't think that's how it works
Karl: the New York Times covered
the plight of homeless kids in New York City
– Andrea you spent over a year on
this amazing piece of journalism
Elliott: she is remarkable but their
circumstances are not so unusual
Karl: there are so many homeless
but we never see them
Elliott: poverty is not as obvious
in the U.S. as in other places
Karl: what is a homeless shelter like?
Elliott: it's crowded, the food is rancid
and there's mold on the walls and mice in the room
Elliott: this isn't just about this girl or
this family or New York City, there
are millions of homeless people across the nation
