Not one person on the left - not one - can come up just with one thing the president has proposed in a plan to cut spending.
He talks a lot. But if he ever had a plan, Senate Democrats would have passed it already.
So how can the left possibly think the Republicans have anything whatsoever to go on?
It's the enigma of the left.
Carol, you remain one of the most uninformed people here on topix.

Answer the question.
Have you been hypnotized by Bill O'Reilly? It has been answered. You obviously have difficulty accepting that. Or you are not paying attention to anything but Mr. O'Reilly. Do your own research and get off the Fox news "habit". It's a bad one to have. Both parties are big spenders, they only complain about it when it's the other guy holding the purse strings. You seem to fall into that category as well.

About 750,000 jobs will be lost when the government and government contractors are forced to cut back. That means that not only government but also private sector employees will be on the street and all because the GOP doesn't want to close loopholes that allow corporations to pay little if any taxes.
You're an idiot Jimmy.

Dow closes at all-time high, beating 2007 record. Should have started the sequester a long time ago.

Also...

1. The Cuts Are Tiny!

The actual cuts in fiscal year 2013 are only $44 billion, according to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO). The rest don't even take place until 2014 or later. Whether you use $44 billion or $85 billion we're talking about 1 or 2 percent of total government spending.

2. Spending is Still Going Up!

Even with the sequester, the federal government is expected to spend more this year than it did last year. The government spent $3.5 trillion in 2012 and i expected to spend $3.6 trillion in 2013 (see Summary Table 1).

Today, House Conservatives Will Prove They Are the Problem

Today, House Republicans will vote on a rule in the House of Representatives that, once approved, will allow the continuing resolution to pass while enabling and funding Obamacare.

House Conservatives will make it happen. In fact, House Conservatives who vote for the rule are voting to fund Obamcare. Passing the rule then conveniently voting against the actual continuing resolution cannot be given a pass.

Today, conservative groups must set a new standard — voting for the rule on the continuing resolution must be scored against.

Scoring on the rule must be the new standard because conservatives in the House of Representatives are all too often voting for rules to pass legislation they ultimately oppose when, had they blocked the rule, the legislation would not pass.

They will enable passage of the continuing resolution while voting against it. They will try to have it both ways.

Today is not the day House Conservatives will kill America, but they will show they are the real problem by enabling and funding what they have campaigned against and claim to oppose. They will have become all that they claimed they were not.

Jeb Hensarling, Tom Price, Jim Jordan, and Steve Scalise are the former and current chairmen of the Republican Study Committee. These men are supposed to be the leaders of conservatives.

Watch them today. See which of these conservative leaders and others fail us and fund Obamacare, while spinning their way through denial. Watch as they vote to fund Obamacare, then go home and tell you how much they oppose it because they ensured the continuing resolution would pass before voting against it.

Oh, but it’ll all be okay. We know they’ll fight on the upcoming debt ceiling. Hahahahahahaha. Sigh.

I caught a Jimmy Kimmel segment a couple of nights back where they pull one of those Howard Stern tricks of asking people-on-the-street some inane, innocuous questions to test their sociopolitical intelligence. 19 times out of 19.9999 times, they expose the dim little lives of Liberals.
After something like 15 laughable and clueless responses about Obama's Sequester, they finally ask two black women about Obama's Sequester being sent to Portugal and the first says she agrees with Obama in doing it. The second one sneers at the microphone and says "I don' giv a (bleep). I just voted for Obama cuz he be black".
Jimmy Kimmel knows humor when he sees it. I do, too, but I also know pathetic stupidity when I see it.
Did you see him ask Carol what the sequester means?

Disgraced Ex-Congressman Attacks John Boehner in New Book
Bob Ney, who was imprisoned for his role in the Jack Abramoff scandal, has some scores to settle
.
Ney’s most dramatic accusations are against his fellow Ohioan John Boehner, the man he once saw as his biggest rival to someday being speaker. He describes Boehner as “a bit lazy” and “a man who was all about winning and money. He was a chain-smoking, relentless wine drinker who was more interested in the high life--golf, women, cigarettes, fun, and alcohol.” He said Boehner “spent almost all of his time on fundraising, not policy.” He “golfed, drank constantly, and took the easy way legislatively.” Ney recalled Boehner handing out checks on the House floor and said his ties with a tobacco company were so tight that lawmakers could get free cigarettes from Boehner’s office. His golfing, Ney said, was “nonstop” and “paid for by lobbyists.”

Ney wrote:“If the Justice Department were ever to make John produce receipts for his addiction to golf just for the years from 1995 to 2004, he would be hard-pressed to comply. John got away with more than any other Member on the Hill.”

I remember when Democrats cringed when we called them liberals - even back then they tried to mask who they really were. Now they are unabashed socialists and some even act proud when called one, however most of the sniveling anti-American Democrats profess to be "progressives" - code word for socialist/communist.

I love how the scumbags call taxes "revenues" and wasteful spending "investments" - they are so frikkin sleazy and foolish.

So, stuffit douchebag.
Lets take a look.

1-2% of the federal budget meas that for the balance of this fiscal year, those cuts need made, Since about half the year is passed, that means we are looking to cut 2-4%.

Now figure in all the stuff that is exempt from the sequester, that likely doubles again to 4-8%.

Plus there are contracts, leases, etc that can't be cut.

So now what are we are up to?

You right whiners are just dumber than sh*t.
