@Tolstoy-- "on the dole"? We all know what that is.How do
you come up with feudalistic form of government?You need to do some
homework. Read, and study.
mcclark,the cuts WERE temporary - they DID have an expiration date. BO
signed the legislation making them permanent.and we were not running
a surplus. Gross federal debt increased every year under clinton. You cannot
have a surplus when your debt increases.BO says "They voted to
let the entire burden of deficit reduction fall squarely on the middle
class," he was talking about the dem vote in the senate against
allowing BO to select the cuts, right?
Chicken Little's got nothing on the Washington politicians.If this
paltry $58 billion crashes the government then the problem cannot be solved.Yesterday the GOP members of the Senate drafted a bill allowing Obama to take
the wheel 100%. He would have been able to control exactly where the cuts would
take place.Obama refused the offer.There is no leadership in
government. None.this has been 15 months in coming and they are totally
unprepared to address it.Shame on them. The social contract is
meaningless at this point.
@worfyou do realize you are talking about instituting basically a
feudalistic form of government right? think I am wrong? lets start
with you tell us what you consider being "on the dole."
Before the Bush tax cuts,which the Republicans assured us were only temporary so
it would not run up the debt to much. We were running a surplus. Ever since a
deficit. The Republicans put two wars on the nations credit card. In every war
we have been in before taxes were raised to pay for it. How about we act like
responsible adults and pay our bills.
The TRUTH is what keeps us ( U.S. ) FREE. It's not coming from
DC..........Hope and Pray for the truth America.......Aloha
Obama and the Democrats have demonstrated their total dishonesty and hypocrisy
once again.#1: This so called sequester was Obama's idea in the first
place and in fact he threatened to veto any attempt to alter or defeat it by
either house.#2: Obama and the Democrats have lied about all the horrible
consequences of the sequester which only cuts government increases in spending
not deep cuts like we are lead to believe by about 2 cents on the dollar! We
could compensate for that with getting rid of free trips by government employees
to "conferences".#3 Obama and the Democrats were just handed
massive tax increases on working people in America but that isn't enough,
they want more WITHOUT any restriction their out of control spending!#4:
According to polls more Americans favor spending cuts and are seeing right
through Obama's blatant lies. We either cut government spending or he will
destroy our economy.
Some suggestions for our country:* replace every political leader
in Washington. This is a service-not a career.* because of a conflict of
interest,--no one on the dole can vote.* only Americans with a HS degree,
or higher, can vote.* cut all federal income taxes, but do allow a twenty
percent tax on imports, and exports.* allow the states more independence
to set their own rules, and laws.Now that's transformation we
can all live with.
