What's there to admit?

That the goverment jumped the gun on explaining to the American people what happend?

Terrorist killed Americans in a foreign nation. It doesnt matter if the embassy was fortified or not, the intent of terrorist to kill Americans was going to happen. Republicans cut funding for embassy security, State dept didn't secure the embassy. Stevens turned down added security. The only cover up is that you refuse to accept the fact that our goverment cannot protect all its citizens abroad and you act as if we posses the capability to do so.

WE DON"T.

There has been no cover up about Benghazi.
They can talk about Benghazi all they want but they drop the subject once you remind them that House Republicans cut embassy funding and that Stevens turned down added security to the Benghazi embassy which was an annex, not even a real embassy. The pictures of the embassy shows a single story house with bars on it.

Where the State Dept fails is that they should have not listen to Ambassador Stevens and fortify the embassy annex.

Bengazigate propagandist really shut up when they read the below article also......

Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R) Yes, I "Absolutely" Cut Embassy Funding Thus GOP Let Benghazi Happen

House Republicans cut the Administration’s request for Embassy Security funding by $128 million in fiscal 2011 and an additional cut of $331 million in fiscal 2012....

Last year,[2009] Secretary of State Hillary Clinton warned that Republicans’ proposed cuts to her department would be “detrimental to America’s national security”— a charge Republicans rejected.

Ryan, Issa and other House Republicans voted for an amendment in 2009 to cut $1.2 billion from State operations, including funds for 300 more diplomatic Security positions. Under Ryan’s budget, non-defense discretionary spending, which includes State Department funding, would be slashed nearly 20 percent in 2014, which would translate to more than $400 million in additional cuts to Embassy Security.

Not much to address. Yes Republicans reduced the amount of money that Democrats wanted to spend; they always do. Democrats love to waste money and Republicans want to conserve money.

But the fact of the matter is that the government handed down one big check for the State Department to do as they pleased. The check for 1.5 billion dollars covered all expenses for Benghazi including construction and maintenance. The Democrat Senate approved the spending reduction in negotiations.

If Republicans take back the Senate? We will have jobs, and tax cuts, and open Government. We won't be the laughing stock of the whole world. Putin won't be allowed to push us around, and children will eat their school lunches again. Have any of you looked at Mrs "O"s school food menus? We are throwing out millions of dollars worth of food every week. I bet her daughters aren't exposed to that food, and she damn sure wouldn't eat it.

The only thing that you have a point with is the tax breaks which would only benefit the 1%

If the 1% are providing jobs, and it damn sure isn't the poor providing them, I could care less if they get tax breaks. Last quarter the Economy grew by one tenth of one Percent. One tenth of one percent. Even Uncle Joe would do better then that goofy guy is doing. Put President Obama on the greens, and call Uncle Joe!!!

Who should it benefit?

As Thomas Sowwll wrote in a recent article, the bottom 20% of people in our country have virtually nobody in the family working. And in fact, there are more people working full-time jobs in the top 5% than all of the bottom 20. How do we give tax breaks to people that don't even have any tax liability?

The 1% are not providing jobs. Job growth have been slanted when they gained their tasks breaks.

Most poor people work, hence the term the working poor. Many work two or three jobs!
