Translation:

How do we funnel more millions to our union monkey ownership while pretending to give a damn about the debt.

At least their union monkey and welfare constituency will be easily fooled.

debt cutting = raise taxes
create jobs = raise taxes

Not surprising that Democrats cannot focus on reducing spending, it is not in their DNA.

Obama doesn't want to dirty his hands with suggestions, blame it on everyone else.

That's not leadership.

LMAO! Democrats are Idiots.

Their job is to reduce the DEBT by reducing government borrowing from China. If that creates jobs or ends gov jobs, so be it. Either way the Obama Debt is Unsustainable...

As witnessed by Obama's Credit DOWNGRADE. 1st in US History!

I din get it. I though the Debt Panels job was to find ways to cut spending and to reduce the debt so why do they need to find ways to create jobs. Now the left wants these 12 to do their jobs for them also. Hell if that's the case then get rid of everyone else if 12 can do the jobs of hundreds that were elected to it. What a bunch of moron. Just another way of trying to put the blame some where else.

Yea, I know you din get it. Because of the massive destruction of our economy by the last president we have these carry over massive deficits and gigantic unemployment figures. The right has been pushing for Obama to fix the bush economy by giving more money to the rich and cutting everyone else off. The poor and middle class pay and pay and get nothing. The rich get richer and richer. The "debt reduction" scam was just another republican ploy to steal more of our money. The main point of the debt reduction scam was to make sure no jobs can be created by anybody to assure the continued collapse of the US economy. No, it won't hurt the rich because, well, they are rich.

Obama was either dumb enough to fall for the obvious tricks, or he is part of the problem. Either way he is unacceptable.

At least you're gullible enough to believe everything your democRAT massas tell you.

BLAME is spelled D-E-M-O-C-R-A-T-S.

The 2006 midterm Pelosi/Reid democrat-controlled House and Senate (110th congress) were the death knell.

George Bush and the GOP-controlled congress brought us back from the dot-com bust and 9/11, creating the DHS and rebuilding the intel infrastructure that Clinton decimated. Under Bush and the GOP we had all-time record-high employment, record-high government revenues, a record 52 consecutive months of job growth, 6.8 million new jobs, the DOW near 14,000, the deficit reduced to $161 billion, GDP growth at 3.5%, and unemployment at a nominal 4.2 - 4.5%. GDP grew about 29.7% from 2003 to 2008, and income tax revenues grew nearly 56% during that same time.....ALL-TIME RECORDS.

What happened after the Pelosi/Reid democrat cabal took control of the House AND Senate after the 2006 midterms (110th congress)?

Let's see....

Since the democrats took control after the 2006 midterms (Jan 3rd, 2007), the Pelosi/Reid controlled 110th congress have looted the treasury for nearly $6 trillion and increased the deficit by $1.26 trillion, or 776%.(The republican congress had reduced the deficit from a high of $412 billion in FY 2004 to $319b in FY 2005, to $248b in FY 2006, and ultimately to $161b in FY 2007).

Those same democrats also increased the National Debt from $8.67 trillion to $14.56 trillion -- an increase of $5.89 trillion or 68% AND increased the Debt Limit from $8.965 trillion to $14.29 trillion -- an increase of $5.33 trillion or 59.4%.....while losing 6.8 million jobs.

And who could forget that those same democrats turned the projected $800 billion SURPLUS over the ten-year period FY 2008-2017 into a $9.7 trillion DEFICIT -- a $10.5 trillion worsening of the budget outlook.

IN ADDITION to creating record debt and record deficits, they've delivered record poverty, record welfare, record food stamp enrollment, record home foreclosures, record-low housing values, record-low business startups, record-low private-sector pay, record-high goverment-pay, record-high underemployment, record-high inflation, record-high economic stagnation, record-high bank closures, and doubled unemployment. Along with backroom deals, bribes, government takeovers of our economy, thousands of ruinous new taxes and regulations, billions in payoffs to state unions and union pensions, the ruination of our healthcare system, made a mockery of congress, and utterly crippled business, confidence, and prosperity in America.

If you weren't lying, you'd have nothing to say. Just like your kenyan fraud! LOL!

Democrats have been lying for a decade that only the rich benefited from the Bush Tax Cuts.

The tax bill Obama signed on Dec 17, 2010:
The package would extend the Bush tax cuts for everyone for two years at a cost of $544.3 billion. The bulk of that cost --$463 billion -- is for the extension of cuts for families making less than $250,000. That leaves $81.5 billion in tax cuts for the "rich" or 14.97%.

So over 85% of the extended Bush Tax Cuts are going to the middle and lower income families.

Bush Fault. Bush Fault. BLAH BLAH BLAH

Now that we have gotten that part over with, let's talk about the Constitution. We have ELECTED Representatives who are SUPPOSED to legislate and DO THEIR JOBS, NOT pass their obligations over to a committee of 12. It's that simple.

Why are the Democrats such cry babies?

Oh but he has an idea.

Budget? No problem. Set up a committee.

Spending? No problem. Set up a committee.

Jobs? No problem. Set up a committee.

President Pass-the-Buck has all kinds of ideas to kick the can down the road and put the responsibility on other, equally incompetent people. Forget the Constitution and their clearly defined job descriptions. We now have committees to sit around and discuss the problems, behind closed doors, and get paid (by us) to do so.

I can't wait until this upcoming election. This Administration has got to go! Yesterday would not have been soon enough.

Look azzhole. I made a typo so fck off and second I was talking about why the debt panel was put togeather. The liberal now want them to come up with ways to create jobs and that's not why they were picked dumbazz. The rich get richer! STFU. Sound like you are pissed because you didn't invest in yourself and now you are poor and are blaming the goverment because of it. Get off you lazy ass, abd go to college and invest in your future and just maybe you can improve you life. Well if you could keep that big mouth off yours shut long enough. I didn't vote for Obama so don't blame me.
