Obama got more money by not extending the Bush tax cuts to the rich. Plus the additional 2% that workers are missing from their paychecks.

Now it is time to trim spending.

If the cuts actually happen, this country will CRASH. Cutting DOD worker's paychecks by 22.5% will cripple the economy.

That is a lot of tax money being cut also. Watch all the small businesses near DOD installations crumble.

Obama proved to be the drunken sailor who spend all his money because he does not see any tomorrow. Give Obama more money to spend on the illegals, the Mozlem Brother regime tanks and F-16, on 100,000 guns to arm the Egyptian police and on his failed Obama care for the families of the illegal invaders that are still in Mexico, South America and around the world and will come soon to vote for Obama in return for his freebees. The Sequester deals with 2% of the 3.6 trillion dollar expense in one year which is like a needle in haystack, but Obama proved that he cannot cut even one penny because he already promised it all to his parasitic liberals that refuse to work and live on Obama monthly free check for lifetime. Obama does not need to save any money for tomorrow and he wants no limit on spending with no budget whatsoever because he plans on new world order agenda for American people with no tomorrow for America.

What do you do with a drunken sailor,

What do you do with a drunken sailor,
Earl-eye in the morning!

Shave his belly with a rusty razor,
Shave his belly with a rusty razor,
Shave his belly with a rusty razor,
Earl-eye in the morning!

Way hay and up she rises
Way hay and up she rises
Way hay and up she rises

How shallow and stupid.

President Obama incurred large debt recovering the economy from the nose dive that Bush left it in .

Don't tell stupid, stupid, lies. Fools will agree with you.

The demorats casued the recession and Bush tried to hold it off...all attempts at regulating fannie/freddie were blocked by Dodd and Frank, and you know it. Your blame Bush mantra is dying as more Americans see the damage being done since Pelosi and crew were elected....

What policies did Bush make without approval by congress that CAUSED the recession...we haven't had that answered YET!!
