State Sovereignty ?

In 1864 the idea of State Sovereignty was defeated and the ideas against fortified with a defeat and corresponding military march from Atlanta to the shores of the Gulf Coast. Leaving a scorched trail 60 miles wide.

Bad Management,
Is a good reason to trim the government, next fire excess employees and programs then return authority to the states while they figure it out.

You and many other GOP Supporters are 7 or 8 years late in developing a conscience about Federal Employees and spending.

Obama has reduced the Federal Workforce, and reduced the historic deficits left by George Bush over the last several years.

When George Bush and the Republicans were expanding the Federal Workforce by 1.7 Million people during the Height of their Cabal in Washington none of you offered a word against expanding debt and the workforce.

Yes, the Dems cut spending.

There's never been a time in American History when Republicans have cut spending.

It's always been the same scenario, the Republicans expand debt and when run out of the White House blame spending on democrats who clean up the wreckage left behind by Republicans.

Next week, the GOP will pivot to Job Creation and began slamming democrats on economic policies when any significant job loss as a result of sequester becomes evident.

the word smith play will begin soon.

Any job reduction as a result of sequester saves money, but will cost in safety net spending such as unemployment insurance for those laid off workers.

People that aren't accounted for on one side of the ledger are accounted for on the other side of the ledger.

There needs to be a response to WhiteHouse power grab. It is buying the artillery, criminalizing self defense and granting itself new powers daily.

This is an exaggeration, what power grab? ROFLMAO

This issue insist because Jackson fell down on the job and created a monster through out the south allowing false ideas to crept back into the minds of those who suffered defeat for treasonous activities against the United States.

Allowing bands of tyrants to roam the south subjugating freedoms and rights was the wrong idea to institute civility in the region.

Some 150 years later the mantra of States Rights rears it's ugly head again.

Unfortunately neither have the Dems. Spending has increased every year, and this year will be no different in spite of these "massive cuts". We'll STILL spend more than we did last year, which was more than the year before, which was more than the year before, which was more than the year before, etc, etc.

Bull, spending this year as a percentage of GDP, like the previous years this president has been in Office has shrunk.

Since went has an economy's spending been measured year to year in real dollars?

That may be a means that a common grade school 10th grader may employ, he wouldn't know any better, but for someone debating politics and federal budgets on the web, I would expect better.

When Obama came into office the real 2009 deficit was $1.4 Trillion this year the deficit will come in at $860, a real reduction in spending by more than $1/2 Trillion.

I won't even get into the Clinton years of Budget Management. There has only been 3 President in history who have managed a budget to surplus since George Washington, and Bill Clinton has a distinguished place among that select few and neither of the other two were republica.

That just means they raised enough taxes to offset a small part of the spending.

Spin it however you want, but if we spend more this year than we did last year, then spending went up. Even a 1st grader could understand that.

And Clinton never had a budget surplus; he cheated and counted all the excess contributions to social security as part of regular revenue.

No, it's the special tax benefits signed into law by Bush under the Republican regime, to go along with the two wars and the pharmacy industry legislation approved and signed into law by Bush that continues to strangle American finances.

Outside of the 2009 Spending Bill, Obama has not been authorized any more spending in the 4 years he's occupied the White House.

The shrinking deficit over the last 3 year verify that fact....'At issue is your inability to recognize positive and responsible budget management being it's never been a practice of any Republican who has occupied the White House and, or Congress.
