You know, if you send a businessman to Milwaukee for a trade-show, the company has to pay for a hotel, for transportation, for per-diem and other expenses. It costs some money.
If you lock a man in a government-owned building for 8 years, he's entitled to a vacation. Being as that person is president of the United States, certain security arrangements are in order, as well as other expenses. It costs some money.
It's just the way it is. Get over it. There's nothing to criticize here.
This is absolutely the dumbest excuse you have made for that renegade yet! No wonder you don't get it. So, when are you going you YOUR 4 million dollar vacation? YOU don't think Camp David is good enough? You libs just KEEP getting played. It's pitiful watch.

Democrats in Congress and the establishment press are playing an elaborate game designed to blame Republicans for budget deficits and keep serious discussion of spending cuts and entitlement reform off the table.

Democrats know raising taxes on the rich will not produce enough tax revenue to reduce significantly the trillion-dollar annual budget deficits being run by the Obama White House.

Democrats scream "tax the rich, tax the rich," because they are going to pivot very soon to place a trillion + dollar tax increase on the middle class, and they want ringing in the public’s ears that they wouldn’t have had to do this if the Republicans in Congress had acted right away to place a decent size tax on the rich.

Yes, people will be saying that because it will be TRUE, a tax increase for us all will be the republicans fault because they refuse to raise taxes on the top 2%. Whether you can try to explain the truth away in various ways is a different story, but the fundamental fact will be true.

That's exactly right. The Senate has already passed a bill to keep 98% of taxpayers from seeing a tax increase. President Obama has his pen in hand ready to sign. What's missing is Boehner and gang in the House of Reps. They're willing to kill the country for the benefit of 2%, who are already paying some of the lowest rates in history.

You DO know that Obama rented and paid for his own accommodations for his upcoming vacation, don't you?

Or did that fact slip past you?

Do you HONESTLY think that raising the tax on the wealthy is going to even make a dent in the debt? REALLY? On the other hand, the democrats refuse to consider entitlement reform and THAT is where most of the money is going. What's YOUR solution?

If we raise them up high enough it will.

There's a stupid answer to your insane statement. Now, do you want to get informed, use some common sense and talk politics, or do you just LIKE trading stupid comments.

Personally, I think it's the latter.

OK, SOMETIMES you seem reasonable and somewhat knowledgeable about what's going on...

As mentioned many times before, do some research, we can't raise taxes enough on the "evil rich" to make a big dent in the deficit we have. It's out there, you can find it.

We don't have a revenue problem, we have a spending problem. To say and think otherwise, is clueless and uneducated on your part...

Did you hear about some of the people in Clayton Country receiving $350.00 to help them on their utility bills? Some of them were COMPLAINING about having to wait in line!!!!!! Is this a great country or WHAT?

Giving people help is fine, but having the audacity to complain about having to wait your turn is a prime example of what is wrong with entitlements going unchecked!

Take my word for it. No don't do that. Just wait another 3to4 years and everybody's taxes are going up. Not just the top 2%. The top 2% will only keep the government running another seven days as of now. So just answer this. Where is the money coming from to support all of this spending? Don't just call me names as a response.

All WHAT spending?

What is being spent on that you have a problem with?

Not to mention, we're doing 2 TRILLION dollars less spending than your candidate Romney wanted to do. That's a fact, Jack. So why the problem now?

I never said a tax on the wealthy would put a dent in the debt. I agree that we have a spending problem. But, BOTH sides have to COMPROMISE in order to get anywhere. When one side refuses to budge, then we get no where. I think that the President is willing to compromise. What I see is the Republicans are unwilling to compromise. Why is it that the Republicans are unwilling to do what humans have been doing since the beginning of time...compromise.

If I came to my job unwilling to compromise (on a job issue,) then I'd be fired which is what I believe will happen to this Republican House if they continue to be so stubborn. Then we will have a government entirely dominated by the Democratic party which I don't like either because then there will be no checks and balances, no party opposition.

Where IS the compromise from the Democrats? The republicans have asked for entitlement reform and they have been shut down. How can ANYONE in their right mind not see the need for entitlement reform? You are believing what the media is reporting and they are just parroting Obama. He has them in his pocket. The democrats are WONDERFUL. The Republicans are BAD. See. You are parroting the same thing. IT'S THE REPUBLICANS FAULT. Obama has a safety net. If an agreement is reached, he's a HERO. If we go off the cliff, IT'S THE REPUBLICANS FAULT. Why should he care? You liberals have NO idea how you are being played and it is VERY obvious that Obama refuses to accept ANY responsiblity of what doesn't go his way. He is a fraud, a textbook narcissist and will systematically take this country down. The die has been cast and now all we have to do is sit back and watch. BTW, Obama intends to put an end to the Republican party and it's working. We are well on our way to a one party system. Congrats.

Obama himself said revenue could be raised ($1.2 trillion) without raising taxes. Now he says he needs to raise taxes to gain the same amount of revenue. How quickly he forgets, or how easily he lies?

Obama quoted in 2011: "OBAMA: What we said was give us $1.2 trillion in additional revenues, which could be accomplished without hiking tax rates. It could simply be accomplished by eliminating loopholes, eliminating some deductions and engaging in a tax reform process that could lower rates generally while broadening the base."

The Republicans have offered up the very thing Obama requested, now he doesn't want it. Obama and the democrats are the stubborn ones making the "power grab", not the republicans.

No. I'm not asking about Romney. I'm asking about the 2-TRILLION dollars that anybody that voted Republican wanted to spend on the military, that the Pentagon didn't want.

TWO TRILLION DOLLARS of UNNECESSARY SPENDING. That's what I've got. You voted for it. Thankfully, you've been DENIED.

You sound like a paranoid raving lunatic. All emotion and fury and hate and not ONE.SINGLE.FACT.OR.IDEA. No Solutions, No suggestions. Just hate, hate hate Obama.

Sorry, your train is off the tracks. America had no use for the ridiculous dogma. And if the House Republicans don't get their heads out of their butts in a BIG hurry, they're going to be kicked to the curb as well. America is sick of their little tantrum.
