no Democrats understand that restricting cuts to only 13% of the budget is not going to get you anywhere.
Budget breakdown
Defense: 23%
Social Security: 19.6%
Mandatory: 17%
Non-Security discretionary: 13.5%
Medicare & other Health: 8.5%
Interest: 5.5%
when 86.5% of the federal budget is off limits to cuts, you will never lower our debt
Where was your concern when President George W Bush ran record deficits and kept the cost of the Iraq War off the books and handed out record tax cuts to the rich?
trickle economics is a joke, especially on middle class republicans who are too stupid to realize they are being ripped off
They don't understand, they just want to cut services to the poor, women, the elderly, and defund education. And if they can find more money for defense spending all the more better.

President Obama was scheduled to hold a press conference today to speak about the racially motivated murders of the jogger and the 88 year old WWII Veteran. However, after his handlers were informed by Al Sharpton, Race Baiter Czar, that neither victim was wearing a hoodie and that they were killed by black teenagers, the press conference was cancelled.

Republican Governors: Shhh, Don’t Call Our Obamacare Money Obamacare!

A variety of Republican governors have sought federal funds under Obamacare, many of them to expand Medicaid eligibility for more residents, a centerpiece of the law that the Supreme Court made optional for states last year.

But shhh! Don’t call it Obamacare, they say, for they despise that law.

In the latest example, vociferous Obamacare critic and Texas Gov. Rick Perry is seeking roughly $100 million in federal funds under a program set up under Obamacare, called Community First Choice, to help states provide home-based health care to chronically ill Medicaid patients, as Politico reported this week.

Perry’s office said Politico’s story was “not accurate” and pointed TPM to a Texas Tribune article in which the governor’s aides downplay the connection of the funds to Obamacare, and noted that what they’re seeking is not the broader Medicaid expansion to extend eligibility to more low-income residents.

“The bottom line is it has nothing to do with Obamacare,” said Perry spokeswoman Allison Castle.

Only it has everything to do with Obamacare. As the Department of Health and Human Services explained last February, the new Community First Choice program was explicitly set up under the Affordable Care Act and offers federal funds so states can pay a higher reimbursement rate to providers of home-based care. The aim was to ratchet back an incentive for ill patients to go to a nursing facility when they can be cared for at home.

Perry is in good company among Republican governors, many of whom want billions of federal funds under the law’s Medicaid expansion, but don’t want to call it Obamacare.

Dr. Ben Carson is a conservative star on the rise, but at least one of his policy ideas might cause the Republican leadership to do a double-take. In an interview with The Daily Caller, Carson said he opposed the invasions of both Iraq and Afghanistan.

That's because you are a libtard. Fiscal conservative my ass. Homer never met a Federal program he didn't like. If so name one other than defense which is in the constitution, by the way, unlike all your libtard feel good policies.

i think it was when he heard about that white guy who killed his dog yesterday. never mind that he also killed his daughter and wounded his wife and son. but the dog.....

though it seems the white folks need to spend some time at the range before their mass shootings so they can up the kill rate.

Cut taxes for business.

Increase folks on food stamps.

Attack lawful voting.

Hike sales taxes.

Cut income tax for richest.

Increase fees for everything.

Cut education budgets, fire teachers, no raises for years.

Hire campaign workers with no experience for top state jobs, give them 30% raises!

HYPOCRITES! RED STATE REPUBLICANS!

we democrats get rid of people who break the law. The mayor of San Diego is stepping down. Sexual Harassment is illegal.

We supported President Clinton because sex between two consenting adults is not illegal.

Senator Craig broke the law, as did Rep Foley and Rev. Haggard, yet Republicans continues supporting them.
