This is pretty depressing to me that they didn't even have the guts to cut a measly 3%

I hate to say this, but the only thing left to do is pick up the guns and go to war.

LMAO!

Barry's "taxes on the rich" class warfare yields a paltry $62 Billion, trillion dollar deficits as far as the eye can see ..

No wonder you LEECHES have nothing.

If you don't understand the damage this is doing to this country, you should not have the right to vote.

They're leeches is what they are. They think their irresponsible money practices should also be practiced by the government at large.

2007 is going to look like a picnic compared to the next crash.

You can't run trillion dollar deficits as far as the eye can see.

That's why a $3.39 Wendy's single combo is just $6 today.

Let's see a link to your ridiculous numbers regarding public assistance.
Only a leech wants to drive this country into the ground by more borrowing and spending. You must really hate your kids because you are destroying their future.
Why are you such an uneducated, jealous lowlife?

Past generations tried to accumulate a little something they could leave to their kids. Baby boomers want to spend everything they have, take out a credit card to spend more, and then enslave their children, grandchildren and descendants with the bill.

This is another one of those "unanticipated consequences" that resulted from communist lite/secular America. So few people have or care about nuclear families anymore that they don't feel any obligations to the people that follow them. That's why they continue to party on someone else's dime.

LMAO!

The White House at first tried to do all of that. They wanted about $1.6 trillion in revenue — a trillion from rate increases and $600 billion from the elimination of deductions. They wanted $400 billion in exactly the wrong kind of Medicare cuts — provider cuts that not only make the health-care system less efficient but also tend to increase spending in the long run due to increases in the volume of services — to blunt Republican criticism of Obamacare and to make real (if incremental) structural reform far more difficult. And they wanted control of the debt ceiling, so Republicans would never have that leverage again. That would not only have given them relatively significant new revenue, it would also have strengthened their hand to get even more later.

But that hasn’t happened here. This deal is projected to yield $620 billion in revenue over a decade — increasing projected federal revenue by about 1.7 percent over that time. And that’s about it. The Democrats have made the Bush tax rates permanent for 98 percent of the public, which Republicans couldn’t even do when they controlled both houses of Congress and the presidency. They did not get to pick and throw away the low-hanging fruit that could be used in future rate-reducing tax reform (in fact, they retained some “extenders” of tax credits and deductions that could better enable such reform, and the new and more honest CBO baseline that results from this deal eases the way for it), they did not get to claim that they have reformed Medicare without touching its structure, and they now have to move immediately into a debt ceiling fight. Right after a tax-only deal, and just as people start to notice higher payroll taxes, they’re not in a great position to demand more rate increases in that fight, or others to come.

If even under the conditions of the past month — with a very liberal president just re-elected, Republicans in disarray, public opinion on taxes seemingly friendlier to them than it has been in decades, and higher tax rates automatically taking effect — the Democrats can’t get more than a tiny pittance of revenue and no chips to use later, then their basic approach to fiscal issues just won’t work. The idea that they will raise rates again in the Obama years when they don’t have all these factors working in their favor is a fantasy. And the notion that the politics of taxes has decisively changed in their favor has been disproven by their own behavior: Many Democratic senators were as relieved as Republicans to see the threshold for higher rates rise well above $250,000, and would not have stood for it dropping below that level to where their upper middle class voters are. Having discovered an effective political wedge in the tax debate, the Democrats have now basically used it up and gotten awfully little in return. They can’t begin to acknowledge that the levels of spending they want to sustain will require a far greater tax burden on far more people (and in a far more regressive way) than today’s code, and if they can’t even state what they want out loud then they’re not likely to get it. Their bluff has been called. The welfare state they want to retain and expand cannot be funded, and they apparently have no way to do anything about that.
