VIDEO: GOP “Out for Blood” After Fiscal Cliff Deal

Congress may have averted the fiscal cliff, but when it comes to ugly fiscal battles, America hasn’t seen anything yet, according to Mother Jones Washington Bureau Chief David Corn. “The Republicans now are going to be out for blood” Corn says. “Having lost this round as they are see it, they are going to want to have a big fight over the debt ceiling and to demand it’s not raised.”
