A debt-busting deal on the scale that President Barack Obama and House Speaker John Boehner are seeking all but guarantees that people on Medicare would feel at least some of the pain.Low-income people on Medicaid wouldn't escape totally, either.

The article says the 500 billion dollars Obama took out of Medicare was in lower payments to doctors. Doctors are quitting and hospitals are no longer taking people on Medicare. It did not work. You cannot simply pay doctors low wages and all is well. Now Obama is going to make even more cuts to Medicare and make cuts to Medicaid, but his Obamacare places millions on top of millions more people onto Medicaid. The plan does not work unless millions of people can get Medicaid, but, doctors no longer take Medicaid due to Obama cutting the payments to doctors. Now, if they slash it up more, Obamacare will be a program of Medicaid and Medicare, but no doctor will take anyone on those programs. What a mess.

People that have Paid and Paid into this system while big bro stole and stole from it need to keep what they paid for - PERIOD -

People that have paid into it for years (40 something people) while bb gives it to whoever should be at the least paid back...

Others however, like the aliens and lazy, the druggies and deadbeats should feel a very lot of 'the pain' < Stop giving 'em what others have PAID FOR!
it will be good to see ss not on the tax forms - yeah Riight!

Before just cutting find out what Medicare really costs. The politicians have no idea what the Medicare costs are. They do not know how much waste, fraud, and abuse is in Medicare to know what the real costs of Medicare are. First before anything eliminate the waste, fraud, and abuses in the Medicare and Medicaid programs then start the reforms. Do not allow the waste, fraud, and abuses to continue.

The Military/defense is loaded with waste, fraud, and abuse and is out dated and needs to be cut drastically.

We need to have no free pass for the EPA, DOE, ED, Interior, Agriculture. Most of which are totaly redundant and could be eliminated completely. Governemtn needs to be trimmed by 70%. Whole departments need to be killed.

Once again rethugs and republicrats like obama balance the budget on the backs of the poor, elderly and working people while the rich walk away unscathed. Anyone that thinks that either party serves the interest of the average American is dreaming!

So the economy and jobs take a lower priority. Mitch McConnell thinks that this is what he was elected to office to do? It has been obvious he has done nothing to help the economy. How could he possibly be effective and trusted in budget negotiations?
Almost as soon as the polls had closed this past November and the midterm elections were behind us, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) stated that making sure that Obama is a one-term president was the GOP’s most important priority.

to be replaced with new missions..a landing of man on MARS!

a walking ,breathing man!.....

President Bush has unveiled a new vision for space exploration, calling on NASA to "gain a new foothold on the moon and to prepare for new journeys to the worlds beyond our own."

In a speech at NASA Headquarters in Washington, D.C., the President said that the "new course for America's space program" would give NASA a new focus and clear objectives for the future.

"We do not know where this journey will end," said Bush, "yet we know this: Human beings are headed into the cosmos."

"With the experience and knowledge gained on the moon," he said, "we will then be ready to take the next steps of space exploration: human missions to Mars and to worlds beyond."

The propsed funding for the new exploration initiative will total $12 billion over the next five years, with much of it coming from reallocation of $11 billion within NASA's current five-year budget. The president called on Congress to increase the agency's budget by roughly $1 billion spread over the next five years.
