This plan will continue to de incentivize the successful business owner knowing
more and more of his success is being taken from him. Meanwhile Obama offers to
raise low to moderate income families' children for them through this
government funded preschool. Also, Obama's plans for building roads and
bridges. What happens to the workers when the projects end? Back to unemployment
because business owners won't be able to hire due to new tax laws and
paying for obamacare.
Obama has been terrific with his prior budget.....wait....this is his FIRST
budget. He has been President for 51 months and this is his first budget. He
has added 9 trillion to our debt. He continues to penalize success. He
continues to weaken our country morally, economically and militarily. What a
And it's still not balanced...
Some observations and questions.Why do we always hear about budgets that
are supposed to go 10 years, when a new budget is required every year. How can
a President or Congress even try to fool us the people with talk of the next 10
years? 10 years from now, we will have a new President, and many of the current
people in Congress will be gone. And whoever is in the White House and Congress
then will surely be talking about the "new" budget of 2023. Not of what
budget was done 10 years before. Why was the
"infrastructure" not fixed with the first 800 billion that Obama said
was going to be used for shovel ready jobs?When Obama says he will
protect the "very elderly", just where does that age begin?
More taxes and more spending as far as the eye can see! Results: more debt,
fewer jobs and higher unemployment as far as the eye can see!
United we stand, divided we fall. Most of the posters on this blog and their
Tea Party leaders will continue to try and trip this great country up until we
fall. Their doomsday prosticnations over the past 4 years have not come to
pass. This is a great country that has become paralysed by extreme right wing
nuts. Our country's greatest sign for a positive future lies with our
youth. They overwhelming vote and speak out against these right wing anarchist
and their narrow minded views. It's just a matter of time before the Tea
Party joins McCarthyism in the dump bin of American history.
Wow, an honest assessment from the AP!! It actually acknowledges that taxes
have already been raised on the wealth when it says “raising taxes further
on the wealthy”.BO’s plan includes ADDITIONAL $50B for
infrastructure. So much for cutting. BO says it’s paid for by more taxes
or deeper cuts elsewhere. Why not just reduce the deficit by another $50B?Reducing increases by $130B and raising taxes by $580B is NOT a balanced
approach, ESPECIALLY with increased spending for infrastructure and day care.“(BO) has presided over four straight years of annual deficits
totaling more than $1 trillion”According to the treasury,
bush’s average deficits, INCLUDING off-budget expenditures, were around
$500B. BO is the WORST ever!HS Fan,Repubs can come along for
the ride if they want, but they’ll have to ride in the back.Bush stole the election from gore.Judicial nominees get
“borked”Who is being divisive?Actually, most
of the posters are expressing their support for efforts to limit the damage the
current mistake in the WH is doing. And where is the DEM support
for BO's budget? Hmmm?
@HS FanSo, if a person is critical of a president who is failing, you call
them "narrow minded" and "right wing nuts". You assume everyone
who disagrees with the president is a Tea Party member?I remember,
during GWB presidency, how many people from the left were saying horrible things
about Bush. If the same things are said about this president, the left calls
"foul!" or "United we stand, divided we fall". Bush
had many failures.Obama has far more failures. If you believe
that this country is on the right track, you are delusional. We are quickly
headed in the direction of France, Greece, Cyprus, Venezuela. Socialism
doesn't work.I pray for an independent leader in the next
election who can help us dig out of this mess.
Ten commandments and BO:* Thou shalt not lie--you will not see your
taxes rise a single dime, cutting the deficit in half.* Thou shalt not
bear false witness--it's George Bushes fault, it's sequester, Mitt
didn't pay enough taxes.* Thou shalt not steal-- billions in
benefits, rock parties, and vacation subsides.* Thou shalt not commit
adultery-- free birth control* Thou shalt not covet--you didn't build
that, you can pay a little more, the greedy rich.* Thou shalt not
kill--Bin Laden, abortion, collapse the economyThis guy wants to
transform our country?
I'm laughing. Nobody has even seen the beginning of job losses due to
small businessed being mandated to buy Obamacare.
Obama's last proposed budget did not get a single vote in the House of
Representatives. Not even a single vote from Democrats. That's how far from
political reality his fiscal ideas are. This budget appears to be no
different.Obama's idea of reducing spending is to cut back on
the amount of increases he previously proposed... not on the actual spending
numbers. It's very deceitful to those not knowing the difference. It's interesting to note this would be his first proposed budget that has
less than a trillion dollar deficit, but still over 50% higher than the highest
deficit during the Bush years. Incidently, Obama called Bush's highest
deficit "immoral to be passing such debt along to future generations".
It's very hypocritical that every one of Obama's budgets have more
than doubled that highest deficit of Bush. In fact, his combined 4 year deficits
are higher than the total combined deficits of every other president since our
country was founded. Numbers don't lie. That's something that
politicians do. Then gullible voters re-elects the best of those liars. Then all
of us pay the price.
Balanced approach is great. A family needs to get a second job to pay for
excessive bills. They shouldn't force a short sale or take bankruptcy by
refusing to pay.
Again, we seem to be robbing from those who have put so many years paying into
the Social Security and Medicare funds to find they are being robbed by the
government. We have an obligation to take care of our parents who no longer
take care of themselves. Agreed, not all elderly fit into this category, so
perhaps a better solution is to fix the system, rather than rob from those who
truly need it.
Sounds like he's become possessed by Republicans. Oh
well....he still can't do worse than anyone the GOP has pushed on us in the
last ten years.Why has voting become choosing the least damaging
Check out the stock market. The market likes the budget. If Romney was so great
for business market would be what...20,000?
WOW! did not see this coming throughout the debates I could swear he said no
more taxes espeacially on the middle class! That whole not raising taxes and
bash Romney talk just went out the window. I would like to thank everybody who
voted for this guy, and for help being a part of tearing down this great Nation.
I hope you all can sleep well.
Well, since Reagan repubs have cut services, increased spending and cut taxes on
the wealthy while putting the tax burden on the poor and middle class.All
this has done nothing more than increase the deficit exponentially and of course
non of the repubs care about it when it's a repub doing the increasing.At least Obama has a realistic view of raising taxes while cutting
spending.Things worked very well on this concept when Clinton was
president, who left Bush with a large surplus which was quickly spent in just
months of Bush taking office.Nobody who voted for Reagan or the Bushes
have any legitimate reason to complain about deficits.
Stock Market is running higher not because of the economy, but because of
QE3.....it has nothing to do with Obama! If anything the market is artificially
inflated and eventually it will correct itself. All that cash created sitting on
the sidelines rather than be invested in jobs because of Obama's unstable
economic policies are in the stock mkt.
Yes, Romney would have corrected the market to 5000, slashed government jobs and
done a Hoover double down.
@Ernest T. Bass re"At least Obama has a realistic view of raising taxes
while cutting spending."Really? Realistic? I take it you are
on the public dole, rather than creating any jobs or paying heavily into a
system that is broken. I currently pay 42% federal taxes, 5% State taxes, and a
litany of other taxes that essentially overload me with >50% of my income
being sent to the government. How is that fair? And you think I should have
that amount raised? Really? As long as it doesn't hurt you, you
don't care about it huh? Your idea of realistic economics is
self-serving and ridiculous. Just like Obama's.
This guy loves to point fingers!
Re: one voteI don't even hear the Democrat talking heads trying
to use the stock market as a sign of Obamas economic plan working. I'll
bet they fear, as many of us do, a huge "market correction" that will
remind us of 1986. Plus, the irony of the booming market is that it is
benefiting the people who Obama and the Democrats have run against these last
few years, namely the wealthy getting rich off of the backs of the poor. Funny
Ernest, "cut taxes on the wealthy while putting the tax burden on the
poor and middle class."Why do you perpetuate what is an outright
lie?the bush tax cuts cut rates for the highest incomes by 460 basis
points. When you consider the child tax credits that the wealthy do not qualify
for, the effective rate cuts for the low income earners were around 700-750
basis points.Only in lib class-warfare diabtribes does 460 exceed

major assignment, only to receive a complete mess."I waited for
What a waste of paper. Why did they need to print so many copies? I thought we
were trying to become a "paperless" society? They couldn't have
made a PDF copy and emailed it? Why aren't the environmentalist upset at
the waste of paper?
Ernest t. There has been no tax increase on the middle class except for the one
Obama gave my $50k year secretary this year....You know the one that was suppose
to hit everyone over $250K as promised By Obama/Biden? And My taxes were also
increased but as a Business owner I politely passed them onto you with higher
prices at the pump and the grocery store. Didn't phase me a bit!
one vote: "slashed government jobs"?We should
never have made careers "of government jobs". It's a service, not
a career. The people have stewardship of their doings.This why
Tea Party Posters=Group Think. Still have not read an intelligent argument yet,
only misinformed slander and unabated hatred. America is fortunate that the DN
bloggers are a small minority of this great country. God Bless America and the
patriots that continue to dis-rope the fallacies of the Tea Party.
Raising taxes?? No - say it ain't so. How surprising. This budget will end
up in same place Barack's last 4 budgets have - the garbage can! Geez- not
even Democrat's support these silly things. How embarrassing. But hey -
once a year the man takes a stab at governing and predictably swings and misses
- then heads back out on the campaign trail where he is more comfortable. What a
sad joke of a leader.
@Ernest T. Bass"Well, since Reagan repubs have cut services,
increased spending and cut taxes on the wealthy while putting the tax burden on
the poor and middle class."* wealthy people were paying for
these services to begin with* increased spending for defense is good, and
supplies many jobs.* the wealthy pay eighty percent of all taxes--what are
you talking about?* the poor don't pay income taxes, but requires the
most benefits.In a great free country as ours, it's
irresponsibility that causes most of the poor, and welfare state. Our wealthy
leaders blame responsible/successful people who did build their success.Thou shalt not covet, or bear false witness. All people in this
country can find success.
Take the money from the old people that paid for it, and buy bullets to prepare
for civil unrest. I want Bush back. (never thought I would say that.
What has happened to the Democrats. The elderly are a huge voting block, that
they just lost.
Re: HS FANDo you realize that everything that you say about Tea
Party people can be said of Democrats too? Group Think? And don't forget
that Obama got less votes this time than in 2008. If that is an example of
America on the right tract, I'll take it. Maybe in the next 2 elections,
everything will reverse back once again. It will certainly be time for a change
by then. America usually rights the ship of state when it goes off course. And
if Obama does not change quickly he will be in the running for worst American
