<quoted text>The term is assault rifle. That's a rifle that can shoot multiple bullets with the simple pull of the trigger. What's the purpose of having a rifle that can shoot 20 bullets in 5 seconds? Not for hunting or self-defence. To kill many people at one time, That's the only they're any good for. That's why armys use them.
Once again you show your over abundance of ignorance or your ability to flat out lie , you and obummer have alot in common.

Obama hates the Military.Just like Clinton,"I loathe the military"

Washington Times: Obama's Secret Middle-Class Tax Hikes

Fiscal conservatives and liberal Democrats are calling on party leaders to include “substantial defense savings” in a deficit-reduction deal.

A group of 22 House lawmakers — 11 Democrats and 11 Republicans — sent a letter Monday to President Obama and House and Senate leaders calling for cuts to defense spending to be part of a deal to replace scheduled spending cuts and tax hikes set for January.

Republican hawks have warned of the danger of further cuts to defense spending — particularly the across-the-board spending cuts known as sequestration — arguing that the Pentagon is already cutting $487 billion from its budgets in the 2011 Budget Control Act.

The lawmakers calling for defense cuts say that the manner of sequestration is not desirable, but argue that the overall level of cuts is achievable.

They point to studies from the Cato Institute, Taxpayers for Common Sense, the National Taxpayers Union and the Project on Defense Alternatives that have identified $500 billion or more in cuts.

“We have serious concerns about the careless and arbitrary way that sequestration reduces defense spending, but we support its general intent to improve our fiscal condition,” the lawmakers write.

“We know the United States can maintain the best fighting force in the world while also pursuing sensible defense savings.”

The letter includes Republican Reps. Mick Mulvaney (S.C.), Tom McClintock (Calif.) and Justin Amash (Mich.), who was kicked off the Budget Committee last week for not holding the GOP line.

The Democrats on the letter include Reps. Barney Frank (Mass.), Ed Markey (Mass.), Keith Ellison (Minn.) and Barbara Lee (Calif.).

Elections Matter: The President Will Get What He Wants

In fact, the president holds all the high cards in this game. If no deal is reached, all taxpayers will face an increase in income tax rates—from the Bush levels of 10 to 15 percent for the lowest earners, and from 35 to an effective level of 43 percent for the highest. Taxes on capital gains will rise from 15 to 20 percent, and on dividends from 15 to as high as 39.6 percent. These increases to be accompanied by an additional Obamacare tax of 3.8 percent on the investment income of high earners.

That’s when the elastic ropes come in. The president immediately introduces a bill to lower tax rates to Bush levels on all but the high earners, and dares the Republicans to vote against it. Result: rates on high earners are up, rates on 98 percent of taxpayers are back where they started from. Campaign promise fulfilled, egalitarian ideology satisfied.

President Obama told ABC News Tuesday that he expects Republicans to work with Democrats to extend tax cuts for the middle class.

"I'm pretty confident that Republicans would not hold middle class taxes hostage to trying to protect tax cuts for high-income individuals," Obama told Barbara Walters.

Its funny when Tea Partiers think they've stumbled on something relevant, when in fact all they do is stumble. Why should you care if an Englishman who has lived in Switzerland for 7 years should decide to become a citizen there? Maybe you hate the idea that he's a multimillionaire who has Swiss bank accounts and owns overseas businesses... wait - what was that guy's name again? Willard something?

The Obama administration is launching a new public service announcement campaign aimed at struggling homeowners.

“While communities across the country are beginning to recover from an unprecedented housing crisis, too many families are still struggling with their mortgage payments and are unsure of where to turn for help,” said Treasury undersecretary for domestic finance Mary Miller in a statement.“Millions of homeowners have gotten help to avoid foreclosure since 2009. We want to make sure struggling homeowners know today that there are free government resources available to help homeowners avoid foreclosure.”

It's the administration's latest attempt to deal with housing —the sector of the U.S. economy that helped usher in the 2009 recession and global credit crunch.

The ad emphasizes an Obama administration housing initiative called the Making Home Affordable Program that allows homeowners a way to lower their monthly payments, avoid foreclosure or temporarily suspend their mortgage payments.

The ad is sponsored by both Department of the Treasury and the Department of Housing and Urban Development in partnership with the nonprofit Ad Council. All airtime has been donated by stations, according to a release.
