The solution is in the November election. Register, and vote. Do not vote for any incumbent. We can start all over with people who have a better vision, for the American people. People who can give us lower taxes, reduced spending, and a balance budget. If they do not, vote them out in 2016, and keep removing the politicians until they realize we are the Government, they work for us. Vote like the Government has it's hands in your pocket, because it does!!!

In 235 years the Republicans have never come close to balancing a federal budget, of the $17 Trillion in national debt today, just 3 Republicans, Reagan $2.8 Trillion, Bush I $1 Trillion and Bush II $6.2 Trillion are responsible for more than $9.1 Trillion, or more debt than all the Presidents since George Washington

You'd want the nation to ignore that reality for the fantasy you present of Republicans being fiscally responsible.......... that's a hoot. You had better go burn down the federal archives first to try and sell your theory on Republican fiscal reasonableness

The only time we had a balanced budget was when the Republicans had the House, and Senate under the Hillbilly &hore hopper. As soon as the Democrats took back the House it all went to hell. Soon no one will lend America any money, and the Democrats on the dole will cannibalize their tribes.

But in 2012 We didn't have the President apologizing for lying about his legacy, and everything else in his miserable life. In 2012 we only suspected he was an incessant liar. Now we have proof from his own mouth.

When Reagan raised taxes, he was supposed to get spending decreases which the Democrat controlled Congress just never got around to doing.
.
Obama is well on his way to surpassing G.W. Bush and that is with a tax increase last year and another tax increase through elimination of tax deductions starting Jan 1, 2014.

Keep in mind the fiscal condition of several blue states.

2014 is not being king to the intellectually inept.

Republicans OWNED Congress all the way till Jan. 3rd, 2007 stupid.

Bush passed two unfunded tax cuts - utilizing reconciliation in both votes to get those unfunded tax cuts passed you imbecile - need a little history lesson?

"Despite their howls against Obama, Republicans employed the same procedure to pass major Bush agenda items (which were supported by all four aforementioned Senators):
– The 2001 Bush Tax Cuts [HR 1836, 3/26/01]
– The 2003 Bush Tax Cuts [HR 2, 3/23/03]
– Tax Increase Prevention and Reconciliation Act of 2005 [HR 4297, 5/11/06]
– The Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 [H. Con Res. 95, 12/21/05]
As ThinkProgress has noted, Gregg defended using the reconciliation procedure to open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge for domestic drilling in 2005, arguing,“The president asked for it, and we’re trying to do what the president asked for.” Evidently, Gregg has lost the same sense of patriotic duty.
While Republicans seem to be experiencing a particular form of political amnesia from the Bush years, they ought to be reminded that budget reconciliation has been used by several other presidents, including Clinton and Reagan. In fact, Republicans — with Bond and Gregg among the leaders of the charge — were instrumental in pushing through key provisions of their signature legislative agenda, the Contract with America, using budget reconciliation.
A list of instances where reconciliation was implemented:
Omnibus Reconciliation Act of 1980
Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1981
Tax Equity and Fiscal Responsibility Act of 1982
Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1982
Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1983
Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985
Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1986
Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1987
Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1989
Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1990
Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1993
Balanced Budget Act of 1995 (vetoed)
Personal Responsibility and Budget Reconciliation Act of 1996
Balanced Budget Act of 1997
Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997
Taxpayer Refund and Relief Act of 1999 (vetoed)
Marriage Tax Relief Act of 2000 (vetoed)
Economic Growth and Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2001
Jobs and Growth Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2003
The Deficit Reduction Act of 2005
Tax Increase Prevention and Reconciliation Act of 2005"

You live in the biggest welfare state in this country moron! Your state receives $2.02 for every $1.00 your state contributes!

When it comes to talking about taxes, when you and your fellow N.M.'s pay your fair share, you MAY have a say here.

Always funny how the people who live in the states that receive the most in federal subsidies cries the loudest about taxes.

We should never have had the massive tax cuts we had under Bush - followed by a republican Congress forcing Obama to extend the same Bush Tax Cuts another 2 years!

Let's see - Bush passes, using reconciliation, two tax cuts costing over 2 trillion dollars.

Then, passed Medicare Part D - another unfunded 687 billion dollar package.

Then, not one, but two wars - one the American public knows full well we should never have been in to begin with - add over 3 trillion to this as well.

Funny how people like you want full services, but want top pay less for them. Tell us how this line of horse shit works in the real financial; world?

That was the one and only time in history a President, Bill Clinton had line item veto power as a tool to eliminate and veto Republican budget provisions before signing the Budget into Law. Since then, the SCOUT ruled Line Item Veto power unconstitutional, but Clinton had already doctored and approved the budget that lead to 4 years of budget surplus than Bush, and "deficit don't matter" Cheney took over and blew a hole in spending finishing after 8 years with a record $1.4 Trillion 2009 budget deficit..

None of that stopped Reagan from over spending, the national debt was $880 BILLION when Reagan was sworn into office, the National Debt when Reagan left office was $2.8 Trillion, Reagan gave America it's first Trillion spending Budget

Thanks to Reagan, Reagan ensured the Industrial War Complex would be busy for the next 2.5 decades in war spending, Reagan was the last Cold War President.
