CAP released a report last year outlining some spending reductions that are not only politically feasible but also maintain American national security and military dominance:

•Eliminate the Navy’s purchase of the troubled over-budget F-35C jet and instead purchase the effective and affordable F/A-18E/F jet. Savings: about $17 billion over 10 years.


Reduce the size of our ground forces to their prewar levels. Savings: about $16 billion over the next decade.

•Reform the Pentagon’s outdated health care programs. Savings: roughly $40 billion over 10 years.

•Reduce the number of deployed nuclear weapons to 1,100 by 2022 from about 1,700 today. Savings: more than $28 billion over 10 years.

“The United States faces no existential threats or rival superpowers,” Korb, Rothman and Hoffman write.“We should not be spending as much on defense as we did during the Cold War. Returning the defense budget to historical norms will force the Pentagon to better manage its affairs and will help ensure that taxpayer dollars are spent responsibly.”

Health insurers are privately warning brokers that premiums for many individuals and small businesses could increase sharply next year because of the health-care overhaul law, with the nation's biggest firm projecting that rates could more than double for some consumers buying their own plans.

If there's ANYONE on the left paying attention, how can this possibly be a good thing for the economy and job growth?

Then you should like the ACA
The ACA will make those who can afford it, buy it or pay a fine.
I know someone who bought a cheap policy, putting his family's health & financial well being at risk, only to by a 20K home theater system
the ones that cant afford it wont be affected and still will be on Medicaid or Welfare.

I agree with this Bill ‘House bill would fire tax-delinquent federal workers!!
The delinquency rate rose among Federal Employees to 3.2 percent from 2.9 percent the previous year. The 311,566 delinquent taxpayers owe a total of $3.5 billion in federal taxes, according to the IRS data released today!! Solutions give these individuals, Two Options, Thirty Days to pay up or be Terminated!!

President Obama will include a version of the chained CPI in his fiscal 2014 budget that prompted an outcry from progressives ranging from Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., to AARP leaders to AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka.“The President should drop these misguided cuts in benefits and focus instead on building support in Congress for investing in jobs,” Trumka said.

During a White House news briefing last Friday, Press Secretary Jay Carney was asked whether Obama’s decision to include the chained CPI inflation adjustment in his new budget would “kick people into higher tax brackets faster” and violate the president’s vow not to raise taxes on the middle class. Carney replied that this was “not the President’s ideal approach to our budget challenges, but it is a serious compromise proposition that demonstrates that he wants to get things done, that he believes that we in Washington ought to do the business of the American people by coming together and finding common ground.”

Not raising taxes on the middle class "isn't the President's IDEAL approach"??

What the heck!!

November 2014 elections are right around the corner...

But I really don't think Obama believed he'd win a second term by the time his plan to destroy the economy kicked in.

Payback is hell.

He's a clown who just told the world that North Korea doesn't have nuclear weapons at the same time a government report came out saying they did. he is a clown and these idiots running this country are going to get a lot of people killed. Plus they are destroying this country.

John Bolton wouldn't be my choice but he would be a heck of lot better than Kerry!!!

The Republicans are sitting back watching the reality of Obamacare unravel. Not one of them voted for it, remember? They were told to be quiet and get out of the way...or something to that effect.

Major Democratic financial backers, including trial lawyers and teachers, are gushing about Charlie Crist and his prospects for 2014. Crist has not announced plans to run for governor again, but polls show him trouncing Republican Gov. Rick Scott by double digits.

The lifelong Republican-turned-Democrat at this point looks like he could grab the Democratic nomination without even a serious challenge.

But oh-so-quietly, veteran Democratic fundraisers and strategists across Florida worry about another scenario: A Charlie Crist train wreck that would ensure a second term for one of America’s most-vulnerable Republican governors.

The wariness and even downright hostility to Crist’s candidacy is part of what’s fueling speculation about Sen. Bill Nelson entering the race.

Pedaling, pedaling, it just became apparent to sources in the know that Obama intends to recess appoint Tiger Woods as the Ambassador to Japan and to SKIP OVER the Kennedy girl. I wonder what SHE didn't do? Just imagine if she were the Ambassador and was killed in a raid by Islamic insurgents on our embassy there? Then the libs would be jumping up and down like fleas I can tell you.

I'm just dying to let you all in on the juicy tidbit I found in the Sun Times about Cal Ripkin's body being left to science. Turns out it wasn't a bat he was swinging after all! Wink, wink.
