If the president wants to shut down the country down he if free to veto the new budget. He will be responsible for the shut down since it was his veto. The congress is under no obligation to give him what he wants to spend. He is required to spend what congress appropriates and he doesn't impound.

How do you decrease the debt by spending more?

How does a five year freeze of already over allocated funding cut the debt?

Do the math!

America cannot bear the burden of these tax and spend "representatives", and by the way, who do the representatives represent?

Taxpayers cannot pay public and union workers massive benefit packages when public and union workers pay rates are as high as 150% of the wages that the majority of the workers in the US are paid.

As far as who should pay for the public worker's benefits, one would think they should be subjected to the cost increases the general public is subjected to.

Should everyone be public employees and therefore under the thumb of "Big Brother".

Have we all forgotten about the concept of a free country of free people?

Where does the federal Government takeover stop?

Always difficult to take away something once it has been given, but in this case if major adjustments are not made across the board you will all end up worse off, and so will every other country that looks to you for leadership and protection.

How you achieve that particularly with your system of extreme tribal politics where you spend most time and energy attacking each other instead of the common problem/problems is the $64,000 question.

Obama is playing politcal games with the economy. He will force Republicans to make spending cuts and then use those cuts to campaign against them. Obama is putting his self interest above what is best for America. His base of public employee unions, ghetto dwellers on life long welfare, illegal aliens, refugees from the Third World, ACORN, Black Panthers are destroying America piece by piece.

Here is the "Blinded -By -The Koolaide" drinker again.

Defend the democrats and Obama over this bill purposed. It's not even the cuts that they promised to make and yet still the liberals won't sign it!

Lets see the smate even make a symbolic 5% cut to their own budgets , they won't because they still have dem majority!

So what's it going to be cut spending or continue to watch the ruin of this country?

Once again you speak of Obama as a "Marxist" when time and time again we have shown you that Marxism and Republican views are the same. One of these days you will learn politics but then again I'm pretty sure that isn't a class you had in school yet.

By the way, proper grammar and spelling counts. More people will pay attention to your rants once you learn that.

That would lead to the 2nd Great Depression and maybe a few more wars. BRILLIANT. Paul can say what he wants because he knows it won't ever come to reality.

Really can you list the reasons this would happen?

We may be buried to far into the government nanny state by now!

We aren't a true democracy by the way, we are a Republic, Federalist Papers , read them that is what our Constitution was drawn from.

We need to make these countries pay for our protection or leave.
We haven't fought a war to win since WWII so stop the police actions or win and get out!
Liberals run their mouths about all these rights and how government should give them more, until they realize you born with them and that if someone van give them to you they can take them away . When someone wants to cut costs even defense the liobs still complain.

We ARE A DEMOCRACY. We are a REPRESENTATIVE DEMOCRACY in the form of a FEDERALISTS REPUBLIC. Memorize it because I see you trying to be smart by throwing this crap out often. It might work at the welfare office but not in an educated forum.

As far as the Great Depression, cutting spending is exactly what Coolidge and Hoover did - funny they were republicans too, coincidence? Hardly. Keynes proved the economics.
