Why do you listen to that lush?

"N ow let's consider the extreme case where you get $12,000 a year, but you get no paid vacation. In the previous case, we assumed 2 weeks of vacation, but if you worked the entire year without any breaks, that would be 52 weeks. Assuming 40 hours a week, that equals 2,080 hours in a year. Your annual salary of $12,000 would end up being about $5.77 per hour."

Ok, so we let them expire. We still spend 1.2 trillion more than we take on. From 1.3 to 1.2 trillion. Wow, that's one hell of a start
It doesn't fix a damn thing though. You're brain washed, homer.

Military spending should have cut itself considerably due our leaving Iraq, and then further as we finally make the escape from Afghanistan.

If we can stay out of large scale military conflicts for one or two Presidential terms perhaps we can settle on what size our military really needs to be.

Additionally, beyond military (Pentagon) spending, conflict creates additional spending in other government agencies, the State Department, NSA. CIA, VA of course and too many others to mention.

Hah, I love that Da Bammy has laid Syria off on Russia, Turkey and Lebanon and that those nations haven't a fkn clue about what to do.

Haha. What an idiot.

" House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said President Barack Obama’s budget for 2013, which got zero votes in Congress, Democrat or Republican, was “an excellent proposal” for talks dealing with the so-called fiscal cliff."

Oh, don't worry, honey, I'll fill you in. Basically, in the last 30 pages or so we've established that the republicans/makers lost this most recent election and can look forward to four more years of swallowing come and living in seclusion in the desert in France.

So we're 100 billion ahead, like I said it's a start. Cut spending, do it, we spend 600 plus billion a year on defense, more than the next 10 countries combined, Shirley we can find some cuts there? And then we can go after Big Bird and Jim Lehrer, wouldn't it be ironic if this administration cut their funding?

No homer, we're 1.2 trillion behind. The iraq war ended and we are still 1.2 trillion behind., increased taxes won't fix our spending problem. You wingnuts are so brainwashed by class warfare you can't see the 1.2 trillion tree forest.
