House passes landmark budget bill

A landmark spending bill - putting the brakes on years of steady growth in domestic appropriations - cleared the House on Thursday, but not before Republicans had to reach out to Democrats to save themselves from defeat because of defections on the right. Full Story

I hope all of these politicians checked with Michael Moore before passing this LANDMARK Budget bill!

Landmark? When it's all said and done it is $382 MILLION. Not a typo.

$1.5 trillion deficit and the cuts are smoke and mirrors. Did these morons not get the message last November.

I'd think Osama Hussein is looking for the return of Jesus, but that's right, he's Muslim, or he's high. He looks like a fruit loop.

Who is this Osama Hussein you speak of? If you are referring to The President of the United States of America, Mr. Barack Obama, the least you can do is show some respect for the office if not the person who holds it !!!

Yeah and Unbelievable
I have a question
Do you like George Bush? He thought he was God. He started the two wars that have caused the collapse of the economy. I'm deeply against Obama's increasing our presence in the Afghan war, but you're comments prove that you're not great thinkers. Effin idiot and Osama Hussein? Like him or not, he's become president because he's more talented than 99.999999% of the population. Maybe you just don't like the color of his skin.

Cutting 38 billion is one week of Obama spending in a year. Not near enough to get out of this massive hole Obama has us in.

Who got us into this hole? Obama has done things I wish he hadn't, but he didn't get us here. Are you one of those people that love everything your party does and despises what the other party does? Both parties are equally culpable. Anyone know a good third party?

Obamaq, the most pretentious poseur to worm his way into politics since Lucretia Borgia, has fascinated the kelp-brained left in American politics better than any blunderbuss could have cowered Montezuma.

obama is a cold hearted cruel tyrant. obama does not care if we're suffering out here. obama does not care if high gasoline prices hurt us. obama does not care if we can't find work. he WANTS us to suffer. he hates us. he really does.

you know, it always amazes me how the pirpress chooses its stories. has this rag bothered to print the story about oklahoma's senator inhofe chose to land his plane on a closed runway? i can't think of a better metaphor for republican policy - americans are apparently too ignorant or greddy to understand how these people have no morals and don't think twice about taking a few american's lives while conducting their daily business. when i was growing up, we would not tolerate this sort of behaviour - people would be punished for nearly taking peopels' lives - but not republicans in today's america. their disasterous economic policies continue to drive america over the brink - enjoy the ride, you teabagging ijiots.

Back on the farm we used to see sows with their snout in the air, and their cloven hooves scrunched in manure.

So remindful of Offlalbama and his politics of lies...
