After telling Fox's Neil Cavuto how much the "American people" really want to see the deficit cut by reducing spending and pretended that he and his party have in any way been acting in the interests of everyday working Americans, he reminded everyone of just what we're in for in the near future -- more hostage taking and demands to slash our social safety nets.
