Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-AZ)
Paul Krugman
James Carville
Mary Matalin
Matthew Dowd
Stephanopoulos: omg the fiscal cliff will
doom us all!

Audience: yikes

Stephanopoulos: Jeb will you ever agree
to raise taxes on the rich?

Hensarling: Obama lied in the election!
It's a bait and switch!

Stephanopoulos: so will you raises taxes or not?

Hensarling: no because we did a study
and it turns our people don't like taxes

Stephanopoulos: I see

Hensarling: taxes are irrelevant to the debt

Stephanopoulos: what will it take for
you to agree to raise taxes?

Coburn: only if Obama agrees to eliminate Social Security

Stephanopoulos: it's a plan

Coburn: the Chinese will take over America!

Stephanopoulos: oh my

Coburn: let's be honest with the American people –
you are going to have to suffer -
if you are not rich and are on Medicare and Medicaid

Stabenow: we already cut $700 billion from
Medicaid and Republicans demagoged
it all during the election!

Stephanopoulos: that was before

Stabenow: will the rich sacrifce or
just the poor and middle class!

Grijalva: businesses don't need tax cuts
- they need customers

Stephanopoulos: what do you suggest

Grijalva: stop giving away money
to rich companies

Stephanopoulos: Obama says he also
won't debate the debt ceiling

Hensarling: we need to threaten to default
on our debts as a speed bump on the road
to becoming Greece

Stephanopoulos: wow

Hensarling: America is on the road to bankruptcy!

Stephanopoulos: Mitt Romney ran against
cutting Medicare

Coburn: because Obama didn't cut it enough!

Stephanopoulos: I see

Coburn: Social Security will be
bankrupt is about 2 years

Stephanopoulos: please continue

Coburn: we're spending money we don't
have on luxuries we don't need and
by the way all this began in 2009

Stabenow: I would just like to note that
the GOP want to give rich people another
tax cut and if they don't get it the middle class
will get a massive tax increase

Grijalva: hey remember when Republicans
borrowed money from the Chinese to fight two war?

Coburn: nope

Hensarling: doesn't ring a bell

Stephanopoulos: thanks for coming

[ break ]

Stephanopoulos: so panel can Congress and
the President ever make an agreement?

Will: America used to be great and
now it isn't and also Americans are
selfish lazy bastards

Krugman: the real problem is that
Republicans are fucking crazy

Stephanopoulos: that is an interesting point

Matalin: Republicans have offered very
specific tax increases

Krugman: no they haven't

Matalin: it isn't fair that people in
Congress get to decide the laws

Carville: I love my wife but she is lying

Matalin: you're not getting any sex tonight lizard-boy

Carville: fine with me Gulch

Krugman: cuts to Medicare only affect providers

Matalin: they affect patients!

Krugman: she's lying again

Dowd: I speak for the American people
and they need to sacrifice

Stephanopoulos: no one likes sacrifice

Will: it is wrong to spend more than we
take in except under Saint Reagan

Will: we need to enact the Ryan budget

Krugman: that budget is a total fantasy –
it counts revenues from Unicorn Races 
and Dragon oil!

Carville: the rich have gotten everything –
wars, tax cuts, bailouts – I'm goddam sick of it!

Dowd: both sides are equally to blame! 
Shared sacrifice!

Carville: Matt will yah please do
mah the honah of kissin' mah Cajun ass?

Matalin: Obama caused the recession of 2008!

Stephanopoulos: good point Mary

Matalin: Keynesian is lunacy!

Krugman: I really need to start drinking
before I come on this show

Carville: mah choice is meth

Matalin: I only use heroin from Amsterdam

Dowd: airplane glue is the best

Stephanopoulos: weed works for me

Will: I'm strictly old school – bourbon and painkillers

Stephanopoulos: and that's the show
