Well 20% of the bloated 1 trillion pentagon budget mean 200 billion right there and that is just tip of other budgets that can be cut....my plan would cut 600 billion a year and not one old sick or poor person gets cut off and left to die......Plus 20% increase in taxes on super rich would not only balance the budget but give us a few hundred billion a year to pay toward debt.....SOUND GOOD TO ME.

Totally agree. If America had wanted a bright future for their families they would have flocked to the polling places to Stop the Obama. Americans didn't MAN UP and must accept the dramatically devalued future as all our pitiful families deserve.

For the first time in over 220 years America voted to surrender our freedoms, and our families future hopes and dreams, to the heavy handed demands of Big Bro.

obama asked bowles-simpson commission to investigate ideas for economy, then ignored their advice. the white house promoted sequestration as a stick to keep republicans in line. now that they seem to be saying, "ok, bring it", the prez is whining again, saying we need a big deal. you made your bed, now sleep in it...

Surrender, Submit, OBEY..The Obama! Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro don't "negotiate" and neither will The Obama! You Rhinosaurs need to wake up and realize America voted to be a filthy deficit ridden Dump in November.

America voted to deprive their own kids of their American Dream. He won. You lose.

It's about time we passed a regular budget, and Republicans need to scrape themselves up off the floor and help pass one. They've been obstructing the business of the country too long even as they've blamed Democrats for this.

Thing is, the GOPee doesn't want to sign off on any kind of budget deal, because then they'd own it, too. They'd rather just blame and run.

Too bad the President and the Senate Democrats can't pass a budget. Ask Harry Reid why he can't pass a budget?
There you go...the 'blame and run' again. It's GOPee doctrine...:)

Too bad you can't be honest and post the entire posting. But that is the best we can expect from an emotional liberal.
Let's go over this again:

I said Dems needed to put a budget on the floor, and Repubs needed to help pass it and stop whining and playing games.

All your post said was that Dems haven't put that budget on the floor or passed it - which I've already stipulated.

So what's confusing to you here, other than the debate itself?

Inciddntally, NO one is more emotional than the far right, which constitently insults, abuses, uses profanity and homophobic insults, plays games with the facts, appeals to emotion and ignores facts, etc.

I see it every single time I'm on here, so don't tell me about "emotional," dumbass.
