‘We the People’ rejected the GOP and gave President Obama a mandate when we re-elected him in a landslide. We the People reject the GOP budget.

So the GOPasaurs support running up deficts for 9 more years?

At least they're on record now supporting deficit spending, just like the Dems.

Whites MUST stop trying to keep Obama from decimating our kids future. Whites must accept the FACT that their families lost the election. They were the first generation to do nothing to stop their own kids from being robbed of their America Dream.

10 years huh? Really? It is going to take 10 years?

Whether it is the Republicans or the Democrats, hopefully the people will begin to realize that DC is full of nothing but people who are inept and incompetent.

What have these people ever done that was a success? Really think about this. Give one success that both the D's and R's have actually done.

Everything they touch turns to shit. And we the people are left holding the bag paying for it.

A 10 year plan is no plan. It is kicking the can down the proverbial road for 10 years.

This is a complete joke. And people in general and on here look up to these incompetents as a form of nobility. Get some self respect and personal dignity.

Politicians will lead you off a cliff, while at the same time they will tell you that there is no cliff. Wake up to the bullshit.

Why are these Republicans so worried about the
debt? They never were under Reagan or Bush I or Bush II. Those three Republican presidents ran
up about $14 trillion in deficits which were
passed on to Obama to handle. Naturally,
with the collapsed economy Bush left to Obama,
not much has been done to turn the situation
around. And the congressional Republicans (for the
last four years) have been virtually 100% opposed
to turning the economy around for fear that an
economy recovery under Obama would get him reelected
to his second term.

Well, he got reelected in spite of the billion dollars spent by the Repubs to defeat him.

Dick Cheney, the main Iraq war liar, said that
Reagan proved that deficits don't matter anyway.

So, why the big deal all of a sudden?

Question: do you have be born a total hypocrite
to qualify for being a Republican? Or do
they pick it up along the way?

The Rethugs have been looking for 10 years, but still haven't found any WMD's in Iraq.

The Rethugs thought they had 325 electoral votes locked up in November.

Math isn't their game.

You may think that, but you're wrong. The people put the grown-ups back in charge of the people's House, which is where all spending must start. You, the Person, reject the GOP plan, but the majority of voters say "get this mess under control before it kills us."

"We the People" voted for the black man with no regard to
His politics.
The "mandate" was for whites to not appear to be racist and blacks
to be racist.
All that voted for Him are ignoring black unemployment statistics and finally giving the second coming of Jimmy Carter His 2nd term.
With the House staying in control of the GOP, the mandate is compromise. Compromise must include massive spending cuts.
Pres Obama and Pat will keep their IV solution hooked up until the very end of their self-imposed Jones-town koolaid trip.
The GOP must fight this man's cause until the end of His lame-duck term. Then America can remove itself from an 8-year sample
of the Dark Ages.

I am sorry Far Away, but they are not going to balance the budget. These progressive drones had no plan and never did, what we call Repubs will slice the deficit a bit. It will help a little, but the direction will still be the same. Ron Paul had the plan. So instead of Soviet five year plans, america has ten year plans with Repubs and glorious thousand year plans with progressive Dems. Like the third Reich, progressive Dems are going to burn out. but many will suffer as civil rights is used as the crux to destroy a nation with insane economic and financial policies and permanent war to keep the empire going. This will end. I just hope we don't blow up the world blaming others around the planet.

I completely agree that we shouldn't be basing our economic plans and forcasts on any more than five years. Ten years is possibly five times a changing of the guard in the House. We also need to move on a balanced budget Amendment and include in it a zero-base-line budgeting process.

Well, like the third reich, we do have wall street to help us out. We'll load our wheelborrows with dollars instead of marks.
