(D) Manchin hits Obama budget:'Not what the country needs or expects'

By Shane D'Aprile
02/15/11

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) slammed President Obama's budget proposal Tuesday, saying it doesn't go far enough given the nation's soaring debt.

"What we have is a budget proposal from the president designed to get our attention, but given our fiscal challenges, it does not go far enough," Manchin said in a statement. "This is not what the country needs or expects."

Manchin followed other Senate Democrats, including Sens. Jon Tester (Mont.) and Bob Casey (Pa.) is criticizing cuts to the government's low income heating assistance program.

"If we're serious about focusing on the right priorities, it just doesn't make sense that -- for example -- we would leave seniors out in the cold by cutting funding for heating assistance while we spend $53 billion to build a high speed rail network that few Americans will ever use," said Manchin.

The Democrat is already a top Republican target ahead of 2012 when he will have to run for a full six-year term. On Monday, the National Republican Senatorial Committee challenged Manchin and seven other Democrats facing reelection next year to denounce Obama's budget plan.

Manchin is searching for a middle ground on the budget, saying he wants both parties to hammer out a compromise that reins in "out-of-control spending." But like other critiques of the president's plan, his statement was short on suggestions for specific cuts.

The no.1 money destroying machine in the world need to be shut down for extreme maintenance and overhaul but it would be better to replace the whole vehicle IMO.

Yawn.

More transparent lying and fear mongering from the left.

Planned Parenthood won't shut down if this bill is passed, since only 30% of their funding comes from the government.

Surely they can easily make up the difference through their leftist donors and corporations.

Pay for your own condoms , pp is private advocacy. they got thier own deal with the devil not the U.S.A..

Many of these privt advocacy work "off shore acounting scams" wait til they get the meat hook in your savings , family , country , justice dept , and even mulitate jenies at tax payer expense.

Wake up in the hospital with no prostate and no money , while thier advocacy says "you gave it to us" !

Come to find out the soviet doctor has mal practice against him , and he`s paying off law suits. Then claims to have the right to build his kingdom!

First off, you have to wonder why our government has "non-essential employees" in the first place.

But consider what happens if they all get fired.(Remember... they're non-essential jobs anyway.)

So unemployment insurance (UI) kicks in, which costs us.

But wait, UI creates economic activity on a 2 to 1 basis.

So... fire all the non-essential federal government employees, and give them UI.

We all save money from a bloated federal budget AND we get increased economic activity.

A WIN-WIN!

Harry Reid is the biggest bleeding heart liberal I've ever seen. And this ex-boxer acts like he's sooooo vulnerable. It's enough to make you physically ill just watching him do his phoney liberal act. What a jerk.

In that case, she will be thrilled with a shutdown as all federal employees that get furloughed will be eligible for unemployment benefits.

Goes to show the republican really aren't interested in the budget at all but in getting rid of all their agenda's. Boehner asked for 32 billion in cuts and Obama gave him 33 billion. But the Tea Party is more interested in doing away with Planned Parenthood.....a 42 year law.... than the actual cuts they were able to get.

It doesn't "do away" with Planned Parenthood, dummy.

They only receive 30% of their funding from the government. Besides, the U.S. government shouldn't be involved in a program founded in and practicing the principles of eugenics.

Let the racists get their own funding.
