watching the Fed chair being questioned. They are throwing darts in a dark room trying to hit something that will work. They don't have a clue but print money and toss it at the problem. It doesn't work. Never has! We are so screwed.

Dumbwaiter got a notice from his cable company. Next year's rates will go up from $65.00 to $95 a month starting next month.

Instead, he switches to another cable provider & it cost $70.00 a month.

According to Dumbwaiter his spending next month will not be less because of the change.

Next month's spending has not been cut.

We should already be coming out of that recession. Instead of being in new ones.
A leader who spends rather than cuts and can't get his own party to pass a budget to save his life - not even his own - can only blame someone else for so long.
After Friday, his "balanced approach" will be played like a broken record. It was anything but balanced. He renigged on his promise to cut spending even after republicans raised taxes and now he wants to raise taxes yet again.
Sequestration was his idea. That, too, is recorded forever.
This is Obama's baby. Stinky diapers and all.
"renigged"? Classic faux pas, or poetic license?
You seem to lack basic comprehension skills regarding the sequestration.
This is entirely in the Republicans lap and everyone knows it; except, perhaps for you.

step away from FOX and try a Reagan economist...

It is a standard talking point of Republicans and deficit hawks of all political stripes that federal spending is out of control; that major surgery is needed, especially on entitlement programs such as Social Security and Medicare, to get the budget on a sustainable course.

In fact, our long-term deficit situation is not nearly as severe as even many budget experts believe. The problem is that they are looking at recent history and near-term projections that are overly impacted by one-time factors related to the economic crisis and massive Republican tax cuts that lowered revenues far below normal.

WASHINGTON -- Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Monday said he would support a sequestration replacement bill that raises $600 billion in additional revenue if Democrats agree to unspecified entitlement reforms

Graham called sequestration irresponsible and the byproduct of a political system that bucks hard choices. He had tough words for his own party too, accusing House Republicans of using budgetary tricks to make their sequester replacement plan work, and chastising Senate Republicans for not presenting a plan of their own.

"We're the party of fiscal conservatism. Have we put together a plan to cut $20 billion between March and October?" Graham said. "No, the House passed a plan to substitute sequestration. The Senate Republicans have yet to offer a plan.... But the House used savings outside of the 2013 window. If you think this is that easy, I challenge any member of Congress to come up with a proposal to cut $85 billion out of the federal budget between March 1st and Oct. 1st."

To me, this is a bipartisan problem," he said. "I voted against this bill because it would destroy defense. It's a lousy way to cut $1.2 trillion, which is imminently achievable. This is the chance to do the big deal. I'm willing to raise revenue. I'm willing to raise $600 billion in new revenue

stopping a tax break is stopping a tax break.

Next months spending has not been cut. It's going up $5. It is becoming increasingly apparent that you are clueless.

Boehner recently told reporters, "We should not have to move a third bill before the Senate gets off their ass and begins to do something."

A few days before said,“Just last month, the president got his higher taxes on the wealthy, and he’s already back for more.”

Used to be called "plain talk". Sounds a lot different than double talk.

Guess I've met my quota of posts on here today.

It's all a propaganda lie.
The only thing being discussed is whether to borrow an additional 8.5 trillion dollars, or just an additional 7 trillion dollars, to keep a government that is impossible to pay for even at the current level of government spending.
Let's go over that again....

Democratic Senator Bill Nelson released a specific list of Florida programs that would be impacted by the cuts.
•749 reading teachers could lose their jobs
•2700 children would lose access to Headstart programs to get them ready for school
•16,000 special education students would see fewer services.
•In research dollars, Florida would lose $25.1 million in medical research funding
•$8.3 million that would go to fund research at colleges and universities could be lost.

•Cuts to health programs mean 1016 fewer low income women will receive mammograms and other cancer screenings
•7950 fewer uninsured children will receive vaccinations.
•Even seniors could be affected, with nearly $3 million dollars cut from food progams like meals-on-wheels.

Reneged. Sorry. Rhymes with rigged. Stupid mistake.

Obama signed the bill that created sequestration. White House Press Secretary Jay Carney admitted last week that “the sequester was one of the ideas put forward, yes, by the president’s team” when asked by a reporter whose idea it was.

Haven't the Cheerleaders shown you this video yet? I've seen it two or three times with Carney standing right there in front of a roomful of reporters saying those exact words.

Hi again, Lily, and bye again.
