You probably should have kept reading.
"Those spending levels ignore the budgetary cap set by law and the political reality it reflects. The $552 billion requested in 2014 for non-war “national defense” spending exceeds by $55 billion the spending cap set by the 2011 Budget Control Act, as amended by the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012.
"Even if Congress agrees to a grand bargain altering the caps, military spending will likely face additional cuts. Republican resistance to tax hikes and Democratic protection of entitlements mean that any deal they cut will likely again target discretionary spending, more than half of which goes to the military."
...Gotta protect those entitlements and keep growing a welfare state. More votes for Democrats who just can't have enough people feeling victimized, you know. If they actually helped them to help themselves, they might start voting Republican.

WIth OBammie...China wins!

China takes a dump on US Lumber companies!

'In September 2012, Columbia and five of its competitors, representing about 80% of the hardwood plywood made in the United States, formed the Coalition for Fair Trade of Hardwood Plywood and filed a petition with the U.S. International Trade Commission to put a stop to Chinese dumping.'

Progressive economy = taxes!!!!!

Progressives create a mess!!!!Yippee!!!!

FOX NEWS!!!!

"The biggest revenue-raiser kicking in this year is an annual fee on health insurers, meant to help fund premium subsidies and other provisions. The fee is projected to bring in $8 billion this year and roughly $100 billion over the next decade. The insurance industry -- and more than 200 House lawmakers -- are trying to repeal it, warning that these costs will be passed onto the consumer (though some will get Affordable Care Act subsidies). "

An industry-commissioned study by consultant Oliver Wyman estimated that rates will rise in 2014 by up to 2.3 percent for that reason alone. By 2023, the study said, rates could be rising annually by up to 3.7 percent because of the tax.

The other major fee to watch out for is the individual mandate penalty. Under the law, those who do not get insurance by the end of March and do not qualify for an exemption will be charged the fee. This year, that penalty will be $95, or 1 percent of household income, whichever is greater. "

Liberal policies do not work with voluntary participation. How many people do you think would choose social security over an individual retirement account funded only by their own contributions? If I had a choice I would manage my own money. All that liberal BS about how I would have lost my shirt is crap, a snapshot in time and only a temporary slide in the market. Over the long haul, I would have been far better off if I managed my own money.

Same is true with healthcare, give people a choice and millions will opt out. When that happens, the whole thing falls apart. The plan only works when you get people to over pay for things they do not want or need.
