I DID READ IT. The author is confusing the deficit with the debt. Two different things but the same in math challenged minds. I am surprised that you didn't recognize that Robert..
We certainly ARE NOT running an annual deficit of over 100 trillion dollars. That's a stretch, even for a republican. However, I do not disagree with the POSSIBILITY of the US having a DEBT of over 100 trillion dollars 30 years from now if action isn't taken.
One thing that I think Obama is correct on is that IF we reduce the ANNUAL DEFICIT by 4 trillion dollars, our financial problems would pretty much be solved. The key word is IF. It will not happen soon because just yesterday, the democrat senate voted to give away another $1 trillion dollars of money to rich agro-business that we have to borrow and the house will approve that and Obama will sign it. With these corrupt bastards increasing the debt 5.8% in just one day to please lobbyist , the Earth itself could wobble from the weight of the dollars needed to pay off the US national debt 30 years from now.

I thought it might be too complicated for you to understand. The key term to remember is "unfunded liability.".

"Coverage may be unaffordable for low-wage workers"
WASHINGTON It's called the Affordable Care Act, but President Barack Obama's health care law may turn out to be unaffordable for many low-wage workers, including employees at big chain restaurants, retail stores and hotels. http://www.telegram.com/article/20130613/NEWS...
No kidding, been said how many times???

BOTH SIDES
<quoted text>
So why not say "Congress" instead of "Republicans", again, bias does nothing to prove your point. It's like saying "a white man robbed a liquor store" instead of "a man robbed a liquor store". OR, you could say "BOTH SIDES" but no, YOU always say what......???

Which party is pretending this has been happening without their knowledge and approval? That would be republikans Which party is creating fear and hatred of our US security agencies? That would be republikans. Why are republikans doing this? To obstruct Obama and try to gain political points, even at the expense of destroying the patriotism of Americans. Since Obama will not be running for president again , why are republikans campaigning against Obama? Because they are stupid and have nothing positive to contribute.
Who robbed the national treasury? That would be congress and their lobbyist .

Unfunded liability such as $1 trillion dollars to agro-business?
That on top the unfunded liability of an additional $1.3 trillion dollars to other rich persons and corporations? No, I will not skip the unfunded liability of $0.987 trillion dollars to social programs. The point is that stealing granny's social security just isn't going to be enough to pull us out with all this unfunded liability in welfare to the rich.
On the other hand, if we were to get serious and cut out all unfunded liabilities, starting with the most expensive ones to the rich and working our way down, our fiscal dilemma could be solved.

It isn't complicated enough to conceal it's obvious errors in attempting to blend annual deficits with cumulative debt.

This isn't about lobbyists.Its about a president who uses IRS to intimidate political opponents.Its no shock that Obama denies federal disaster aid to states that voted against him.Obama froze American response to Bengazi to save Muslims.Obama is giving F-15 jets to Egypt? They certainly are not allies of America.Oh,that's right.They're Muslims.

Right now, republikans are destroying our country. Thats why I am calling them out. Obama was stupid to even respond at all to the spying that was started under Dubya Bush-- with congressional approval of both parties.. Obama was stupid to fail to stop the spying on Americans that has been ongoing since 2002. It has served little useful purpose over the last 10 years, has consumed huge mounts of money and has invaded privacy in conflict with our constitution.

IF Obama signs away our rights to the UN, he will become a traitor just like Dubya Bush when he cancelled the constitution and started spying on Americans. The political party of a traitor does not change the fact that he is a traitor.

I guess there is not one other "party" member involved in the hearings??? BS, "Hatred" your kidding me right? Again, ONLY Republicans? BS, Obstruct? Obstruct what? BS. NO one has been able to "obstruct" anything. Remember Obamacare? How can ANYONE take away an American's "patriotism"? You are so fast to call people "stupid" and yet your party bias, shows what? Please remember there are a few Democrats in Congress, I guess they "robbed" as well.

When the patriot act passed, I thought the government would go this far. It is old news that every phone call and every email has been recorded since around late 2002. That has been on the internet and on the blogs for years. So why is the issue being pumped up today? What else is happening that needs this diversion of the public's attention??
<quoted text>
You need to read the "Act" and then look at the Articles that were extended. Most were set to expire. Here ya go: "On May 26, 2011, President Barack Obama signed the PATRIOT Sunsets Extension Act of 2011,[2] a four-year extension of three key provisions in the USA PATRIOT Act:[3] roving wiretaps, searches of business records (the "library records provision"), and conducting surveillance of "lone wolves" individuals suspected of terrorist-related activities not linked to terrorist groups.[4]" "On Saturday, February 27, 2010, President Barack Obama signed into law legislation that would temporarily extend for one year, three controversial provisions of the Patriot Act that had been set to expire:[178][179][180]

Authorize court-approved roving wiretaps that permit surveillance on multiple phones.
Allow court-approved seizure of records and property in anti-terrorism operations.
Permit surveillance against a so-called lone wolf, a non-U.S. citizen engaged in terrorism who may not be part of a recognized terrorist group.[181]" "On May 26, 2011, President Barack Obama used an Autopen to sign the PATRIOT Sunsets Extension Act of 2011,[2] a four-year extension of three key provisions in the USA PATRIOT Act while he was in France:[3]roving wiretaps, searches of business records (the "library records provision"), and conducting surveillance of "lone wolves" individuals suspected of terrorist-related activities not linked to terrorist groups.[4] Republican leaders[184] questioned if the use of the Autopen met the constitutional requirements for signing a bill into law.[185]"

OK ,here it is . Finally republikans in Raleigh have presented a bill, which if passed, I like.
Non profits will be allowed to have "gaming nights"
which would allow poker games, black jack games , craps, roulette wheels ,etc as fund raisers. I see great potential here (and profits) for my non profit organization to generate competition for the Cherokee Indians. Our financial problems could finally have been solved by-- believe it or not---republikans. We may even have to hire large numbers of people to "administer" this program.

America doesnt stand for anything anymore,and when you stand for nothing,its easy to get walked on.Seems to me that America is ripe for a person with strong views,a person with easy solutions.America now,is where Germany was in the nineteen thirties.
