Cmon Chris! Healthcare for all of our citizens is a good idea. The Repubs have shut down our govt because of the ACA. Its the law, and there are ways to overturn it. Shutting the govt down is not the way to go. If the Dems fold on this issue, what else will tje Repubs demand for the debt limit? Maybe PBOs resignation? Btw, thanks for ur response about the police activity, and i do agree that it is sad that the only way to find out about crime is on this blog.

I think medical insurance for everyone is a good idea, but I don't like being forced to accept it. And if this Obamacare is so well written and without flaws, then why don't the members of congress participate in it?

Not keen on the driver license issue. I think that it may be a magnet for more illegals. And we dont need that. As far as ACA goes, I have no opinion on the affordability of it yet. All that I know is that the Repubs have been on the wrong side of moat social issues. Soc Sec, Medicare, civil rights, lgbt, etc. History tells me that if theyare against it, it is probably good for the common people. When u.get old enough im sure thatu will appreciate SS and medicare

Well john i never said i was republican,or democrat for that matter. And your right it would be a nice thought that when i got to that age i could collect ss or medicare, but with the way this administration is going there won't BE any social security left.All the money i paid in over the years gone!

Try managing this family budget...
Annual family income:$21,700
Annual family expenses:$40,300
This year’s credit card annual increase in debt:$18,600
Total credit card debt:$167,750 (7.73 time the yearly income)

Now add eight zeros to these numbers and you clearly see the root of our government’s financial crisis.(Debt:$16,750,740,000,0 00 [almost 17 trillion dollars] and rising). By the way; the sequestration and other cuts made during the last financial crisis amounts to a cut of only $38.50 in the family budget example.

Let's stop making believe this can continue!

The debt didnt happen in the last 5 years. Its been an on going thing since ww2. I will admit that decades of deficeit spending got us here, but have to add that that the 2 wars, Medicare part D, and tax cuts for the top 5 per cent that were put on a credit card by GWB was a mistake. PBO took that debt from out of the shadows, and onto the debt. SS was supposed to be in a lock box, but Reagan opened it up.

I do like ur analogy on the
budget numbers though. Trouble is that a family budget cant be compared to a National budget. Defense cant be compared to a mortgage. Social welfare and infrastructure to a car payment.

True, so you think all this debt happened When bush was in office?, Although i didn't really like him either,But rather naive to think obamma or his policies haven't added to the debt. What has this president done so far to cut spending? obamacare,mortgage bailout?, I'm just disgusted with both sides really,

And look at (Democrat) gov jerry clown, Lets give licenses to all the illegals?????Now how exactly is this going to help california?? This is the type of democratic thinking thats going to make this country broke, Why are licenses for illegals, more important than unemployment,re-building infrastructure(roads-Bridges ect)And otherwise the well being of OUR great country?

Didnt say that GWB was responsible for all the debt. Said it has been going on since ww2. I also said that there were decades of mismanagement. PBO has his faults, but he is a lot better than Bush. I like diplomacy over war. Didnt like the bank bailout, but was for the auto bailout. Against corporate welfare, but support social assistance. I am more of an Independant, but still proud to be American.

Jerry wants to send a message to Washington, via us. What does a license proove? They are illegal. Just a smoke screen to force immigration reform. Does it mean they will stop when they have an accident, or keep going like now? If the DMV isn't over-crowded now--holy cow, let's put 20 million more through the system.

As far as infrastructure is concerned, thats a federal.thing. The House has had an infrastructure bill sitting incommittee for yrs, ong with a jobs bill, gun control, SNAP, and various other bills that they refuse to act on. If Boehner would bring up a clean CR, it would be approved, but he is afraidof the teabillies. If he holds up the debt ceiling, its gonna. Ruin our credit, cause aworld wide depression, and who knows what else.

I thought the tax on gasoline was suppose to be for hiways, bridges, etc? How come they don't use it for that? What are our car registration fees for--roads? How come California's are way higher then the other states?

Good point Good Grief! Think we pay about 71cents/gal. That is the highest in nation. That includes sales tax, fed exisetax, state exise tax and distribution tax. The fed tax goes to the feds, and is mostly used on interstates. State exise tax goes into the general fund and takes care of state highways and alloted for street repair. The Feds do giveus some money back for bridges and major repairs in grants. Registration fees support dmv and chp.

I agree Mellissa! But it aint gonna happen cause it needs to be a constitutional amendment.our congress critters aint gonna support that. It should be one 6 yr term for POTUS, TWO 5 YR terms for senate, and three 2 yr terms for the house. No pensions, no health ins, and no lobbiest jobs for 10 yrs after leaving office. Will it happen? Dont hold your breath. Democracy has its flaes, but it is the best thing out there.
