after Brooks got smacked down by everyone for trying an 'O'Reilly'....

The above column was written in a mood of justified frustration over the fiscal idiocy that is about to envelop the nation. But in at least one respect I let my frustration get the better of me. It is true, as the director of the Congressional Budget Office has testified, that the administration has not proposed a specific anti-sequester proposal that can be scored or passed into law. It is not fair to suggest, as I did, that tax hikes for the rich is the sole content of the presidentís approach. The White House has proposed various constructive changes to spending levels and entitlement programs. These changes are not nearly adequate in my view, but they do exist, and I should have acknowledged the balanced and tough-minded elements in the presidentís approach.

so the big difference between Brooks and O'Reilly?'everyone' doesn't pay attention to BillO.

Projecting much Carol? The middle class didn't get their taxes raised outside of the payroll tax holiday which was never meant to be permanent. The GOP has never cared about the middle class and have constantly thrown road blocks up on any legislation that would increase jobs.
Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats don't fly around in fancy private jets you goddamn liar, they fly commercial like everyone else. The only member of Congress that gets a private jet is the Speaker of the House currently Republican John Boehner.
"Middle class" is a value set, not an income level.

Middle class taxpayers will pay higher taxes on dividends and capital gains, not to mention the numerous tax increases embedded in Obamacare.

Unfortunately much as what occurred in Venezuela over the last 15 years, the takers in our society have begun to outnumber the makers. The losers in Venezuela took to the streets to mourn their dictator, who plundered their economy for personal wealth, because he handed out free bread to them. Just like the losers of our country elected a president based on the freebies that he promised.
This is one day where it is possible to be jealous of Venezuelans.

The idea was to force spending cuts.
Congress was supposed to provide smarter cuts & they failed.
Obama refused to allow Congress to back out of the deal.
Right now he is still trying to get Congress to come up with better ways to cut.
Congress was willing to provide "smarter cuts", but Obama insisted on more tax increases instead.

Taxed Enough Already.

Starve the government beast.

Harry Reid was Speaker of the House? When was that?
Look at the record of accomplishments; bills passed under Nancy Pelosi.
Then look at Boehners. Boehner has never gotten over a 25% approval rating; and this Congress, even lower.
Approval by whom, he certainly doesn't have the approval of leeches?

By the way, What is a bill?? It's something to be paid? That is foreign to someone on the dole?

Obama is like a petulant child who throws a temper tantrum when he doesn't get his way.

Republicans should continue to press Obama's buttons and let him make a fool of himself.

Closing all National Parks for the summer would be a good start.

Scatterbrain, the Sequestor was not the question you flocking moron. O'Reilly asked the Dingbat Colmbes to name one exapmple where Obama has cut costs in the last four years.

Obama just tried to kill the Sequestor.

Did you see him ask Carol what the sequester means?
The sequester means that Obama gets to appear continually on TV to complain about his inability to cope with a ONE PERCENT reduction in spending.

Management of any kind is not Obama's strength.

Just campaigning.

Fire 'em all, and start over. Pay Congress minimum wage, and require them to abide by any laws they pass. Take away their expense accounts, transportation allowances, health insurance, meal tickets, and especially their corporate sponsorship.

Make lobbying, by any former politician, a criminal activity, punishable by death.

That would hack about a trillion off the spending side, for starters.
