They want cuts in entitlement to pay for the debt they racked up during the Bushs’two wars and Bush tax cuts that we are still paying for. Entitlements such as Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, food stamps, education, Head Start, healthcare for disable vets and compensation in the form of disability checks (due to war in Iraq and Afghanistan) WIC, unemployment insurance, infrastructure repair and building that will create jobs and needed revenue and they want to spend more on defense that is not and has not worked in Iraq, Afghanistan or on our southern border.
Either “p--- or get off the pot.”
Cuts in RomneyCare subsidized by Medicaid and the federal Government? How much is RomneyCare costing tax payers?
Obama has been paying Congress debts for the past four years and it’s way past time for Congress to “anti-up” and ask for those they helped with tax cuts to pay more to help them pay their bills.
Obama did not rack up a $16 trillion debt with two wars unpaid for and tax cuts for the rich not paid for and he should not be expected to take from the poor to give to the rich. Maybe congress should withhold their salary, healthcare and retirement to help pay their debt. The bush policies that they supported that got us into the recession.
Obama say no way is hell is he going to take my COLA away and give it to Congress to pay their debts. Smack it to the wealthy that have been getting tax cuts, loop hole and tax havens at the expense of the elderly, disabled and children.
