After House Republicans balked at President Obama's opening bid in the so-called fiscal cliff negotiations, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) released a statement on Thursday night urging Speaker John Boehner to make a counter offer and lay his cards on the table.
“If House Republicans consider the President’s budget a ‘new’ offer, then we await their counteroffer," Schumer said. "The ball is now in their court to state what they would do on entitlements and taxes. They have given no specifics so far.”

At the county level, the Moocher Myth is more intriguing. The Census Bureau counts federal dollars in five broad categories: retirement and disability payments, salaries and wages, procurement contracts, grants, and other direct payments. In 2004 -- the last year the Tax Foundation calculated the tax burden per county -- the counties that received the most per person in retirement or grants had higher vote margins for Democrat John Kerry.

But the counties that received the highest per-capita spending in the category “other direct payments” voted for George W. Bush.“Other direct payments” includes Medicaid, food stamps, crop subsidies, housing assistance and many other programs that people generally think of as “welfare.”

20%? seems high. is that why Bush insisted on down payment assistance?
maybe you should take a look at this.....

How do you expect people to afford monthly mortgage payments without a sizeable down payment? Then add mortgage insurance on top of that.

If those elected prks aren't willing to negotiate on behalf of all Americans___send them home.
You have to be serious about cutting spending first. That is where the problem lies.

Turning a "corner" assumes a lateral change. Left or Right comes to mind. In this case, it is Left and Backward.

But so, too, "Down".

Bingo. The addicts of the Left are in a cold sweat. They haven't been able to more in a long time. Pelosi's got the shakes and Hairy Reed can't get his tongue hard anymore. The Boy Messiah's trying to hide it but he's up to a pack-a-day now. He just has to spend more.

The Republicans are practicing Tough Love.

Actual tax dollars are handed out in the form of food stamps, section eight, aid to dependent children, etc. In addition to the literally thousands of other government give aways.
$500 billion a year on all levels.
The Jerk-In-Chief is a firm believer in the suicidal adage that one needs to spend their way out of debt. And Stupid is, Stupid does. I still remember him lecturing European leaders to do this. They ignored him like carpet dog-shit at a State Dinner. It really was humorous. The Boy Messiah was the guy with the lampshade over his head sitting in the corner.

Today, he's dressed up the lampshade with free cellphones and Food Stamps hanging from it. Looks like a Pimp having a bad crack day.

It was a gracious gesture by our President, a class act all the way. It can't be easy to lose an election, Mitt gave a nice concession speech, should have left it at that instead of whining that President Obama gave the people gifts. He is his own worst enemy.
Anyway, I do feel sorry for him,
I'll never forget Bush serving hotdogs to McCain! That was brutal. The Republican Party is severely weakened, they have nowhere to go. Good time for a third party to gain steam.
The Jerk-In-Chief is trying a PR ploy to soften right wing opposition to his suicidal spending.

And, of course, drunks and lushes in boca raton fall for it like cheap dollar babes do with Las Vegas Lounge Lizards.

Good stuff for a new sitcom.

Academicians don't have ethics. They are, by definition, indoctrinators, propagandists, Leftist Enablers and Socialist Dung Beetles.
