The only grave you're digging is your own.

If you had half a brain, you'd realize it was your good buddy, Bush, who led us into the current situation.

When he left office, we were losing over 500,000 jobs per month, unemployment was at 7.6% and climbing and the financial markets and banks were in complete turmoil.

And those "religious zealots" include:
Latinos, Arabs, Middle-Eastern Peoples, Catholic, Protestant Christian and Judaic Faith, that is more than a minority of people.
Also includes those of No Faith, but who hold a different moral, ethical, belief system regarding abortion. They disagree with abortion procedures because they believe AT CONCEPTION, that baby, IS a HUMAN LIFE.

And the issue is not the "religious zealots", < whom you relegate and dismiss as minority >, trying to force their faith/belief system on others ...

It's the other way around. It is Obamacare and Crowd who want to force their Secular belief system with regard to abortion on Catholic/Christians Hospitals,( IN The Healthcare Bill ), to not only provide a service ( Mandated by Obamacare Law ), that goes against their Faith Principles,***but to PAY FOR IT as well.

***Includes Tax Payers ... Who do not wish to absorb THE COST.

Only a small minority of religious zealots equate the morning after pill with abortion or consider a fertilized egg a person. Hobby Lobby doesn't want to provide its employees with any type of contraception not only morning after pills. If your personal beliefs are against contraception, fine don't use it. But you cannot impose those beliefs on others.

Obama’s Bid to End Oil Subsidies Revives DebateBy JOHN M. BRODER
Published: January 31, 2011
WASHINGTON — When he releases his new budget in two weeks, President Obama will propose doing away with roughly $4 billion a year in subsidies and tax breaks for oil companies, in his third effort to eliminate federal support for an industry that remains hugely profitable.
What subsidies?
I hear the word "subsidies" said a lot. I just have never seen anything to back that Democrat propaganda bullshit up.
Tell us about those mythical subsidies to oil companies.

What subsidies is Obama talking about?

Subsidy 1:_____????
Subsidy 2:_____????
etc., etc., etc.

Or, is Obama just lying again like he does when he talks about the so-called "sequester", the attack in Benghazi, killing bin Laden, and anything else he opens his mouth about.

Really? The mob killed Kennedy? Gee, that's interesting.

Well if the mob's responsible, why are most of the Warren Commission records sealed until 2039?

Did the mob force President Johnson to do this so they wouldn't get caught?

"1. GOP policies such as tax breaks clearly favor the wealthy."
Only half the goddam country is paying all the income tax for the entire country. Perhaps the Democrats have a fair tax plan where EVERYONE will pay their fair share of what the government they voted for costs?

"2. GOP legislators constantly oppose Wall Street reform."
Wall Street reform written by the very criminals that orchestrated the economic collapse, that being Dodd and Frank, isn't any kind of reform we want.

"3. GOP constantly fights against minimum wage.(And who benefits from that the most? The poor.)"
Why should an employer be forced to pay more for the same useless employee? Why does anyone need minimum wage? Why don't Democrats get off their ass and become worth more than minimum wage?
That will solve their income problem without instituting a Marxist program like minimum wage.

"4. GOP constantly fights social security benefits."
Let's fix Social Security right here and now:

IF YOU DIDN'T PAY INTO SOCIAL SECURITY, YOU DON'T GET ANYTHING FROM SOCIAL SECURITY.
Now that we've fixed Social Security, what other problem do you have?

"5. GOP constantly fights affordable healthcare."
What you call "affordable health care" is paid for by the only half of the goddam population paying all the income taxes for the entire population. Of course, it's affordable to the half of the population that won't have to pay for it. It's not affordable to the other half of the population that pays all the income taxes for the entire population.

"6. GOP under Bush allowed credit card companies to charge 30% interest rates."

If you don't like that, don't earn for yourself an horrible credit rating by not paying any of your bills. If you pay your bills, you will have a normal credit card interest charge.

All of your problems are self-induced.
We are tired of subsidizing your problems. It's time you fixed them yourself, or just live with them.

They are.,
“Moving the goal posts” isn’t a concept that actually makes any sense in the context of replacing the sequester. The whole point of the policy was to buy time until someone, somehow, moved the goalposts such that the sequester could be replaced.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog/...

Here in DC, we can get a bit buried in Beltway minutia. The ongoing blame game over who concocted the sequester is an excellent example. But it’s worth remembering that the goalposts in American politics aren’t set in backroom deals between politicians. They’re set in elections. And in the 2012 election, the American people were very clear on where they wanted the goalposts moved to.

Woodward Misses The Mark

....But in this case Woodward is just dead wrong. Obama and Democrats have always insisted that a balanced mix of spending cuts and higher taxes replace sequestration. It’s true that John Boehner wouldn’t agree to include new taxes in the enforcement mechanism itself, and thus that the enforcement mechanism he and Obama settled upon — sequestration — is composed exclusively of spending cuts. But the entire purpose of an enforcement mechanism is to make sure that the enforcement mechanism is never triggered. The key question is what action it was designed to compel. And on that score, the Budget Control Act is unambiguous.

First:“Unless a joint committee bill achieving an amount greater than $1,200,000,000,000 in deficit reduction as provided in section 401(b)(3)(B)(i)(II) of the Budget Control Act of 2011 is enacted by January 15, 2012, the discretionary spending limits listed in section 251(c) shall be revised, and discretionary appropriations and direct spending shall be reduced.”

Key words:“deficit reduction.” Not “spending cuts.” If Republicans wanted to make sure sequestration would be replaced with spending cuts only, that would have been the place to make a stand. Some of them certainly tried. But that’s not what ultimately won the day. Instead the, law tasked the Super Committee with replacing sequestration with a different deficit reduction bill — tax increases or no.

“The goal of the joint committee shall be to reduce the deficit by at least $1,500,000,000,000 over the period of fiscal years 2012 to 2021,” according to the BCA. The bill even provided the House and Senate instructions for advancing a Super Committee bill if it included revenue. This couldn’t be clearer. In the Super Committee’s waning hours, Republicans tried to entice Democrats into a spending-cut heavy agreement by acceding to a small amount of revenue. Democrats balked — the balance was off — but all of that just goes to show that a tax increase has always been a likely element of a replacement bill, and Republicans know it.

Woodward just biffed this one.
