Sen. Ron Johnson shares his take on the GOP Fiscal Cliff counter proposal

Republican Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin joins Soledad O’Brien live from the Russell Rotunda this morning with the latest details on the fiscal cliff. The nation is just 28 days from falling over the proverbial fiscal cliff, when automatic tax increases and spending cuts kick in. A member of the Budget Committee and the Appropriations Committee, Sen. Johnson shares whether fiscal cliff talks have hit an impasse or come closer to a deal.

    "You lost the election, buddy" doesn't sound bi-partisan now does it?

    I hope Senator Johnson NEVER goes on this show, they are RUDE and extremely disrespectful. Who is the bald and most disturbingly rude person that must be their commentary side kick as he voices up to say the supidest and most uninteliigent remark; "you lost the election, buddy?" He cannot debate the truth, so he lowers himself to at 8th grade level, bully tactic, and calls the Senator, "buddy?" What a punk red neck he must be...who is this creep?

    It is time journalist take basic math refreshers. Clearly they don't understand the magnitude of the problem. In a good year we have 2.5 trillion in revenues. Our debt is 16.2 trillion.......6.75 times earnings. If you're not alarmed by that you shouldn't be advising or commenting on anything related to finances. Your ignorance is breathtaking.

    I'm sick of hearing that the repubs lost the election. NOT BY MUCH. We still need people in washington representing those of us 59 million that voted for conservatism. Just because 61 million voted for the slippery slope does not mean we will lay down and let you walk all over us. And Soledad you were disrespectful. I'm sorry......I want the media of the 1970's that called everyone in the public eye on their behavior, now its just all a jerry springer show. Fools.

    I This is exactly why I chose not to watch anything on CNN. I cannot stand the hubris displayed by the "newscasters" and their hand-picked liberal supporters. Ugh!! I'll stick to the free flow of informed people on the internet. At least they are saying their own truths instead of trying to force-feed us a line of BS.

    It is because of your incessant, lame-brained, in the tank for Obama "reporting" like this that your ratings are so low. You people are ridiculous! Please show me one CUT to spending that the Obamanation has put forth? Our economy is a shambles and all that you people can do is SUPPORT and DEFEND MORE SPENDING!!! Wake up! When was the last time you and your panel mistreated and hammered a democrat in like manner? You're so spineless and weak it is no wonder that only liberals watch your program.
