Actually he did stupid. The Republicans wanted the Bush tax cuts to be retained across the board and Obama wanted them to stay the same for those making under $250,000 ($200,000 for individuals) and for them to go up to pretax cut levels for those making more than that. The final legislation raised taxes on those making more than $400,000 while retaining the lower rates for 98% of taxpayers.
That's called a compromise.
Actually, the Republicans DID compromise by giving the Democrats their tax increase.

But, just like under Reagan and Bush, they get what they want and renege on the expected compromise in return - cuts in the budget.

It might cost them votes, so they renege every time.

Obama promised to go by "line by line" in the budget to eliminate waste, fraud and abuse in entitlement programs four years ago.

Democrats won't even hold Obama to his own promise - and all Republicans were asking for in return.

Yeah!
Stop all welfare. All it does is propagate a culture voluntarily dependent on the rest of the country for subsistence without providing the motivation for self-reliance, and they get an attitude about how they are superior to everyone and demand the rest of the country pay them tribute and bow to them.
How much less money would the government spend if the government led people toward self-reliance instead of teaching them to be a leech on the rest of the country that actually makes the economy work?
Can you give us a dollar figure for the reduction of government spending if all welfare is eliminated?
in 2011 it 1.028 trillion we spent on welfare, it hasn't gone down.

Update on the three Oklahoma chimps!! They need more bananas up there!!

Here are their facebook/twitter posts in the week before the little gibbon cowards murdered the unarmed Aussie kid. Shakespeare, take note.....:-)

http://pjmedia.com/tatler/2013/08/20/were-chr...

The 15 year old is James Edwards. On August 15, a day before the shooting, the “bored” teen apparently posted a terse status update on Facebook, where he goes by the name “Lilbuggy” but his Facebook address is “blackcoon44.”

"I've never been this mad in my life...#pissed^^"

He also posted this ambiguous update, which could be taken to mean shots or music recordings. Evidently the former.

"Bang 2 drops in 2hours"

According to other posts on the page, Edwards is an aspiring rapper. And, he’s not a fan of “snitches.”

"A snitch n&&a that's that sh*t I dont like" #chief keef

Its a shame these monkeys are now removed from the gene pool. No doubt some Nobel Laureate-worthy musings would have emerged from their stunning introspections....:-)

Global temperatures have been going down Carol? Where did you get that crap? Here's some actual facts;
• Average temperatures have climbed 1.4 degrees Fahrenheit (0.8 degree Celsius) around the world since 1880, much of this in recent decades, according to NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies.
• The rate of warming is increasing. The 20th century's last two decades were the hottest in 400 years and possibly the warmest for several millennia, according to a number of climate studies. And the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reports that 11 of the past 12 years are among the dozen warmest since 1850.
• The Arctic is feeling the effects the most. Average temperatures in Alaska, western Canada, and eastern Russia have risen at twice the global average, according to the multinational Arctic Climate Impact Assessment report compiled between 2000 and 2004.
• Arctic ice is rapidly disappearing, and the region may have its first completely ice-free summer by 2040 or earlier. Polar bears and indigenous cultures are already suffering from the sea-ice loss.
• Glaciers and mountain snows are rapidly melting—for example, Montana's Glacier National Park now has only 27 glaciers, versus 150 in 1910. In the Northern Hemisphere, thaws also come a week earlier in spring and freezes begin a week later.
• Coral reefs, which are highly sensitive to small changes in water temperature, suffered the worst bleaching—or die-off in response to stress—ever recorded in 1998, with some areas seeing bleach rates of 70 percent. Experts expect these sorts of events to increase in frequency and intensity in the next 50 years as sea temperatures rise.
• An upsurge in the amount of extreme weather events, such as wildfires, heat waves, and strong tropical storms, is also attributed in part to climate change by some experts.

Lewis Black tells Rick Perry: Go back to college,‘and this time, try to memorize some stuff’
“He may run for president again,” Black said of Perry on Tuesday.“If that happens, as a comedian, I’m thrilled, but as a citizen, I weep.”
O’Donnell also mockingly asked Black,“Are you now or have you ever been a Canadian?,” a swipe at another Texas politician, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX).
“No, I’m not,” Black responded.“I have too much of a genetic predisposition to irony and sarcasm.”

Obama was born in Kenya and indoctrinated in Marxist communism and Saul Alinsky tactics his entire life, apologized all over the world for the United States being the United States, sabotaged Iraq, sabotaged Afghanistan, and has muslim terrorists in the White House every day.
If Obama loves this country, why did he surround himself with the people who hated the United States his entire life?
How about we get one of those old patriotic chants going.
Everybody. All together now.
"God DAMN America"
Now, that's love for a country.
Any enemy of the United States is, and has always been, a friend to Obama. That's why muslim terrorists are in the White House every day.
The million muslim march is going to be met by a million American bikers in DC on 9/11.

<quoted text>A new study by the CATO Institute, a public policy think tank, found that some welfare recipients make more “income” than those in the private sector.
A mother with two children in New York, for instance, is able to collect $38,004 per year in welfare handouts. This is greater than the starting salary of a teacher in the state.
And the problem is not limited to New York. CATO found that many states give handouts with sums greater than what workers earn in the private sector. According to the study, Hawaii is generally the most generous with benefits — there, a mother of two is eligible to earn $60,590 per year.
The study also pointed out the least generous states. A mother of two in Idaho, the state that came in dead last, is only eligible for $11,150 per year.
Perhaps most unsettling is the fact that in 33 states, welfare recipients make more than they would at an $8 per hour job. In fact, in 12 of those states, welfare recipients make more than they would at a $12 per hour job.
*frankly I hate these lazy bitches. Poor my ass.
If you pay them more not to work than they can earn by working, many will choose not to work.”
Welfare programs have ballooned since former president Lyndon B Johnson declared a “war on poverty.” Since then, a whopping $15 trillion has been spent on programs to help the needy.
Now, 83 federal welfare programs combined represent the largest federal expenditure. In 2011 alone,$1.028 trillion was spent on welfare payments.
Of course you hate them, you hate everyone. Quel surprise.
The cost of living in New York compared to Idaho? Keep listening to Limbaugh, the fat drug addict; you're getting dumber by the day.

These O'bamasons were born in America:
Surveillance video from several businesses captured images of the suspects’ vehicle…
After the teens were arrested, Ford said the driver, who is 17, told police they were all at the scene of the slaying and that the 16-year-old suspect pulled the trigger.
“He said the motive was,‘We were going to kill somebody,’” Ford told Australian radio station 3AW.
They were defending themselves. From being bored.

Want health care?
You've already got it. No hospital can refuse treatment to anyone who needs it.
Or, what you really want is the same health insurance as everyone else paying for it, right?
I'll tell you how to get health insurance like everyone in Congress has: get elected to Congress.
How to get health insurance everyone who works their whole life has: get a fucking job and show up for work every day on time and do what you're paid to do while you're at work.
Problem solved. That wasn't too difficult.
What other problem can we solve for you?
yes, Reagan made sure that ANYONE would get treatment when they walked into a hospital. and who pays for that treatment?

thanks a bunch Ron. no wonder my taxes are so damn high!!! never mind the 11 times you raised taxes!! most of my working life i've had to pay so redneck white trash can walk into hospitals and demand a liver transplant!!

and hey DB...do you have any idea of how full of shit you are? and that you can walk into any hospital you want and get free treatment and free drugs to fix that problem thanks to Republicans?
