This has gotten so old. How about a new direction? Let's change the
constitution to read that if the parties cannot come up with a budget two months
after they are sworn in then they don't get paid, they have to give up the
health and retirement benefits they have certainly not earned and they can ALL
be booted out of office in a clean the entire house November election.
I don't understand why Obama and Democrats won't work on spending cuts
separate from tax increases. Obama has refused to consider any bill that
doesn't include tax increases.They still don't understand
that if they taxed 100% of Americans, 100% of businesses, 100% of everything,
then confiscate all wealth from everyone they still wouldn't have enough
money to balance the budget for more than one year.Tax increases
will never solve this problem. Democrats still cannot understand that the
problem is too much spending. Decrease spending.
How can Obama be so divisive and the nation tolerate it? When is he going to
learn to lead? That's the trouble...we have a campaigner, not a leader, as
Why are libs always so ready to spend other people's money?
" I will not sign a plan that adds one dime to our deficit--Barrack Obama
2009"* You will not see your taxes go up one dime, in any
form--Barrack Obama 2009"* I will cut the deficit in
half--B.O.* Having created sequester, I now don't like it , and
will blame the Republicans for it--New York Times Feb 17, 2013What
kind of expectations do Americans have, when voting for a president?
I think the thing that truly showed the real agenda of Obama and the Democrats
was when they turned down a proposal from the Republicans that would have given
Obama in essence the line item veto. Obama could have taken the power and cut
the 87 billion how he wanted to. Instead he hides from the responsibility so
that if pain happens he can blame the Republicans. By the way, this sequester
stuff was Obamas idea in the first place. Yes Republicans bought on to it, but
it was stipulated at the time that no tax increases would be part of the deal.
Now Obama wants tax increases again, after getting one only a few weeks ago, and
does not want to cut any of the growing budget. Will somebody please explain to
Obama and Democrats the difference between a Billion and a Trillion. Trillions
of dollars of debt is dangerous to this country.
This will be the story for the next 2 years and possibly 4 if the GOP retains
power in the House. Our political leaders are like teenagers fighting for
At a rate of a dollar per second, it would take 554,000 years to pay off our
debt.What is it about cuts, that Obama doesn't understand? Let's quit giving billions to other countries.
