Then perhaps the Democrats should eliminate this benefit to demonstrate their fiscal responsibility.
I agree with you on this, it should be on the table. Originally, it should have been paid for with revenue from tax increases or closing loopholes or cuts in other programs. It shouldn't have been combined with tax CUTS.

Tell you something you have probably never thought of. There is such a thing as Conservative Democrats who are not extremists. Rare but true. Dedicated to Fort Lee Virginia.

Well when you tune into a news network only telling you what you want to hear everyday, is that real news or propaganda. That's the question you should be asking yourself. Carol is a classic example of that, actively seeks out stories or mostly comments that re-enforce her point of view rather than having an open mind. Fox news was designed by Murdoch to target exactly that audience which had been ignored for the most part because it was a small voice of minorities the other networks did not give credence too. However that has consequences and Tea party was one of them which may have appeared anyway after an election of the first black president. However Fox gave them oxygen, way more than they deserved which led to the loser congress you have today. Totally functionless leaving the bulk of the population without any real government.
Actually, I go out of my way to find as many sources as possible to back up my point of view other than Fox News - for your benefit. Some sources do reinforce the point of view I and many others share that make the most sense; however, no matter the source, the information is ignored if it doesn't follow the liberal agenda.

I will write President Obama a personel check to cover his expenditures for his vacation time. Donald Trump take that. United States Government pays their military personel good money and good benefits. Have sibling named Chumley Europe be prepared for a future American Leader. I just hope they don't turn out to be Republican. Save The Children Angels Amongst Us.

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama's 2008 campaign has been fined $375,000 by the Federal Election Commission for reporting violations related to a set of donations received during the final days of the campaign.

The fines are among the largest ever levied on a presidential campaign by the FEC and stem from a series of missing filings for nearly 1,200 contributions totaling nearly $1.9 million. Campaigns are required to file the reports during the final weeks of the campaign.

http://news.msn.com/politics/obama-08-campaig...

"...missing filings for nearly 1200 contributions..."

And we trust this administration to handle the debt ceiling and the entire nation's health care?

Well you're gonna have to do some fast talkin' and high steppin' to pull that one off. You used up all your Magic Negro dust this last election, there's nothing left but to deliver - and that's not in the cards. We now have higher taxes, NO spending cuts, and $5 trillion added to the debt. You're on a roll.

"One thing I will not compromise over is whether or not Congress should pay the tab for a bill they've already racked up," Obama said in his weekly radio and Internet address.

Borrowing more money to rack up more debt to pay off the debt Congress racked up?

Somebody's head isn't on straight. President Obama's.

I need a liberal to explain this logic.

Has everyone gotten their first smaller paycheck yet?

$30 a week more in Federal Income and Social Security taxes adds up.

Don't know about anyone else, but I'd rather keep that $120 a month especially since this president has no intention of cutting one dime from government waste and spending but only increasing the deficit.

How is taxing working Americans' more going to fix the government spending even more?

Again, any liberal who can explain this would be helpful and appreciated.

Nothing to see here...
Just typical Democratic freeloaders freeloading...
{...federal sting last year found that one Canarsie grocer was recording huge phony purchases on EBT cards, giving customers 70 percent in cash and pocketing the rest as a “commission.”
That one scam alone defrauded taxpayers of nearly $1 million over two years.}

It's worked great for me, sorry you're such an inept, no talent loser that couldn't make it work for you.
Your girlfriend fat Al and Clinton have gotten very wealthy since leaving office, how many people have they helped?
This is where it is ok to contradict yourselves all the time. Telling everyone to go out, get a job and when they do and are successful at it why aren't they throwing their money away. lol

Al made his movie, you didn't like what he said in it, but the rest of the world did so too bad. Bill makes some pocket change on the speaking circuit and he supposed to turn into Mother Theresa, well maybe he likes touring the worlds golf circuits instead.
Point is, both men have brains and are in demand, Al Gore is either on the board of Apple and Google or doing consulting as an example. Bill Clinton has more intellect than 10 tea bagger congress on a good day. So you will never see them on the board of anything other than coal fracking, oil drilling and the NRA.
