These spending cuts are the best thing to happen to the U.S. Government in a
long time.The Sequester is good medicine. It may taste bad as it
goes down, but in the long run, it will make America stronger.I
applaud the true source of these cuts ... the Tea Party. We forced the hand
of the government to cut the spending during 2011, and we should be proud of
lee expects automatic spending cuts.automatic?If
it's automatic, why do we need lee?
A few weeks ago I heard on the radio a poll being quoted that over 50% of
Americans favor the sequester. This surprised me, but I also have to favor it.
The government's, from local to federal, spending habits have to be
disciplined to live within their means. Washington now borrows about half of
what it spends. What happens when there aren't any countries willing to
lend the federal government more money? The federal government will then have to
cut its budget by a huge percentage, and that would likely be only the beginning
of the painful measures required to become solvent. The 85 billion that would be
cut this year in sequestration is a small sum compared to the entire budget. It
may be painful, but it will be less painful than the consequences of Washington
continuing down the road of irresponsible spending and self-destruction. It
would be far better, in my opinion, that the politicians see now that their pet
programs, including the military, can survive on less, and start seriously
dealing with the debt.
Senator Lee says he's waiting for the president to come forward with a
proposal. I heard him outline a reaosnable proposal just the other day. Maybe we
should chip in a and get the senator a television or a radio.
Yeah Mike, go ahead and talk about how the government needs more fiscal
responsibility and then go short sell your house... Another tea party gem.
The TRUTH is Bush took far more vacations and played a lot more golf than Obama
by a long shot. War or no war.
And Senator Lee is one of the prime sources of obstructionism that have caused
this mess.His hypocrisy knows no bounds.
Lee said he ran for Senate to make state governments more powerful and bring
what he called the "Utah model" for government to Washington, D.C. What
he's found in the nation's capital, he said, is that the "blame
game is very much alive and well."As an active participant in
the game, he should know.The "Utah model" of one party heavily
influenced by religion and private businesses isn't very good for a nation
either. Ethics in Utah politics is also fought against by our local elected
the truth,"Bush stopped playing golf while their was war on,"And yet he still managed to rack up more vacation time during his
presidency than any other, including Mr. Obama. And we were at war during 7 of
his 8 years.What was your point again?
The truth: Are you kidding me? You really believe Bush stopped playing golf
during the wars? How naive:"Bush said he laid down his clubs
after the August 2003 bombing of United Nations offices in Baghdad that killed
the UN's top official in the country, Sergio Vieira de Mello. "I
remember when de Mello got killed as a result of these murderers taking this
good man's life. I was playing golf - I think in central Texas - and they
pulled me off the golf course and I said, 'It's just not worth it any
more'."According to a database held by CBS News the
statement is not entirely accurate. He did cut short a round of golf at the 12th
hole on that day, but his last recorded game came two months later, October
13."Afghanistan war started in 2001; Iraq war started in March
2003.Also, just ask the vets how they felt about the reason Bush
said he gave up golf. Many of them thought of it as a slap in the face!
@xscribeBush stopped playing golf while their was war on, Obama continues to play while Americans are dying in foreign countries.
Kinda like W, who played golf while talking about the troops dying in Iraq.
Then nonchalantly said, Now watch my golf swing! Another pathetic president!
And not just Hill, but federal facilities in every taker red state. Put them in
the states that pay the most taxes.
Let's hope Hill Air Force Base is the first thing that gets closed. People
that are responsible for the pain should get the pain.
"Both the U.S. House and Senate have advanced plans, but President Barack
Obama has not."Barack?!You just went and played golf
on taxpaymer money all weekend while the other 300 million of us are suffering
financially and about to suffer more?Pathetic president
