Or the millions that go to the Department of Justice to fly in fancy planes all over the country.
Or the millions that go to "conferences" in Vegas and fancy hotels where our tax dollars help our government officials live it up on government business.
Why is it the most obvious cuts seem to elude this administration?
The republicans have had their work clothes on for two years now ready to do the dirty work helping this president clean out the closet. But he still wants to play games.
You're hilarious.

Look up any website of your choice where "Balanced Approach" is anywhere in the search mode.
Then search any website to prove to me Obama has worked with Congress to come up with reasonable spending cuts.
I'm very open to reading any you provide.
Otherwise, the hint of reality is eluding you, sonic, sadly enough.
he has the upper hand. if he wants to stick with what he's been saying all along then why not? why should he be the one who has to compromise?

funny how you old arrogant white folks act like Obama is the one who's being arrogant. white privilege can be a real bitch eh?

That's debatable, but this is nothing even close to austerity.
The budget this year is still significantly larger than last year.
My bad. I mean spending, given there is no budget.
We only get to "austerity measures" if this president succeeds in taking us down the road of Europe by 2016.

We still have time to pass major reforms that will save both Medicare and SS and find reasonable and easy solutions to cut wasteful and unnecessary spending.

After this president gets tired of playing chicken with the republicans.

Then why did you post "Hannity calls Ellison a black Muslim" in another post as if that was a big fat lie?
I didn't mean that it was a lie; I meant that Hannity and his followers, like you, will go on and on and on that he is a Muslim and he's black; thereby cementing in your narrow mind your white supremacist leanings. You were appalled that Mr. Ellison said what he said to Hannity; why is that?
Were you shocked that Mr. Ellison had the courage to stand up to Hannity, the quintessential white supremacist?

Druckenmiller Sees Storm Worse Than ’08 as Seniors Steal

Stan Druckenmiller, one of the best- performing hedge fund managers of the past three decades, has a warning for the youth of America: Don’t let your grandparents steal your money.

Druckenmiller, 59, said the mushrooming costs of Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, with unfunded liabilities as high as $211 trillion, will bankrupt the nation’s youth and pose a much greater danger than the country’s $16 trillion of debt currently being debated in Congress.

“While everybody is focusing on the here and now, there’s a much, much bigger storm that’s about to hit,” Druckenmiller said in an hour-long interview with Stephanie Ruhle on Bloomberg Television’s Market Makers.“I am not against seniors. What I am against is current seniors stealing from future seniors.”

Druckenmiller said unsustainable spending will eventually result in a crisis worse than the financial meltdown of 2008, when $29 trillion was erased from global equity markets. What’s particularly troubling, he said, is that government expenditures related to programs for the elderly rocketed in the past two decades, even before the first baby boomers, those born in 1946, started turning 65.

Agree, Mr. Ellison should not have gone on that show; Hannity baited him and he bit; nevertheless, Mr. Ellisons popularity has grown, he said what everyone thinks and knows and the rest are; well, they're "the rest", the 20% nutfringe.
You should be ashamed, Lily, for siding with someone the likes of Ellison because of your blind hatred towards Hannity.

I'm ashamed of you enough for the both of us.

Does Carol want Medicare and Social Security cuts? If I remember correctly; she may have recently come "of age" for those programs.
It's billionaires like Carol who don't care about the elderly and poor. She's an absolute genius, how did she become a billionaire on $15.00 an hour parttime?

You just don't get it, do you? It's not about having the "upper hand" in an economic crisis that is spiraling out of control.

It's about putting aside party loyalty and doing what's right for the country.

This administration's interest is being the "winner" by destroying the opposition.

You surely can't believe this is in the best interest of the nation.

Boehner has no control over his own caucus, let alone have any ability to deliver votes on anything. Look at his record; he is the least effective Speaker of the House ever.
