I dont like Obama or his policies...alreadt said that,...But I dislike Bush and his policies as much.....BIG SPENDING IS BIG SPENDING DOESNT MATTER WHAT IT IS SPENT ON./
Let me put it this way....To me adding 2 trillion to debt for welfare or for military is both very bad....2 TRILLION OF DEBT IS 2 TRILLION FO DEBT NO MATTER WHAT SPENT ON..
That is why I am a Libertarian...I WANT CUTS ACROSS THE BOARD AND MASSIVE BIG CUTS..
I believe we can cut in a lot of areas as I have said before - there are many areas to begin with we can reduce the number of employees in the WH, 120 is too many, reduce the politicans retirement, make them pay for their own insurance just like everyone else does, make them take Obamacare since they do not have to take it, make them pay into SS so they will not steal from SS to put into another fund. There are a lot of areas to be cut but (Congress/WH) are not going to listen to the people and the people are not screaming loud enough. When was the last time you wrote to your congressman. I sent a letter last week expressing my opinion on Gun Control - told him guns do not kill people - people kill people. Not one of my guns has ever jumped up and shot someone without a hand on the gun itself.

The things you listed for cuts is like what maybe 10-20 billion......WE NEED TO CUT A TRILLION. And with out cutting some of the almsot 1 trillion military gets we wont make any cuts that will help..ALL BUDGETS MUST BE CUT....ALL.

I agree on gun control. In fact I want use of machine guns back we need to get more rights back on guns...

As the sequestration blame game continues.
One question perhaps you folks could answer -
Did Congress pass sequestration before the president signed it?
When do these folks get back to work?

Obama Caught In Bald-Faced Lie On Sequester
By Daniel Noe

Greta Van Susteren played a montage of political statements on the sequester. From the video, it is clear that the sequester cuts were a product of the White House.

It is also clear that Obama continues to get away with a bald-faced lie that the idea …[Read More...]

Our biggest spending items are Social Security, Medicare and then military spending. Look it up on the National Debt Clock. 80 percent of the federal budget goes to SS, Medicare/Medicaid and to military spending. Unless you cut the entitlements by about 3/4ths AND cut military spending in half, there is no way to stop borrowing money. Old people get 4 times more government money than young people. SS and Medicare have over $122 TRILLION in unpaid for promises. There is no way in hell to ever pay that out over the next 20 years to retired people. We can either phase out the military empire to give the tea party folks their big SS and Medicare, their socialism, OR we can end the Tea Party's socialism and then have the huge military empire they want.

And anyone who actually believes No. Korea or Iran is capable of attacking us or wants to have a war with us is nuts. You're uninformed and have a clue and repeating fear stories from Fox TV. If you live in fear of everyone and everything and want war after war after war and want to run the world, you can't also be weak and dependent on the government to live retired and ask the government for free health care the whole time you are retired. If you want a military empire, PAY FOR IT. I hate the tea party. All they do is ask for their big, fat socialism and for a military empire while they are sooooooo stupid they think they want spending cuts. If you don't want cuts to our massive old aged social programs and you don't want any cuts to our military empire, you are a big, huge spender. Get a clue, this is where all the money is going. And all of those tea party loons asking for all of that stuff are retired folks sucking the life out of the government and they do not pay income taxes overall.

They are so full of crap. Their whole thing is "I'm so scared, I'm so weak, pay me, take care of me, protect me, don't cut one thing on me and don't ask me to pay taxes, pay me, I'm retired, poor me, give me everything, cut spending on OTHER people, but don't cut one thing on me." This is how they are. This is WHY the tea party is just about gone. A bunch of old folks on the government wanting a military empire are low IQ brain dead nut jobs and that's what they showed the world. Look at us, we are all old fools, stupid people who are weak and dependent on the government going on and on about how independent we are and what big patriots we are. All bull crapola. The tea party thinks being a patriot means living on socialism, not paying taxes and demanding all the tax money be spent on them. Big patriots my azz.

Being patriotic doesn't mean being old and stupid and dependent and sucking up most of the federal budget and trying to screw the young in every way so you can keep living fat off of the government.

Some of the people not getting Social Security yet will be the first to complain when they get little checks. They are also usually the people who never paid a dime into he system. People my age know there won't be any S S when we are 65 so we are preparing for old age now. Of course we are also paying for the louts not putting money into S S.

What a hoot you are General. Maybe if you will learn to read you will know Social Security and Medicare are self funded.......when the government isn't stealing from them.

Yep thats why the middle class checks went down because no new taxes were taken out. Who took the money - it was OBAMA TAXES. Can't blame the Reps for this one.
No, dummy, you said this:

"...there will be NO TAX INCREASE ON THE MIDDLE CLASS per Obama."

And there hasn't been. I AGREED with you.

No new tax was added to take money out of paychecks. You're confused.

The trouble is that loony righties like you and au Jimbo can't ever back the claims you make. You just launch insults against anything liberal and believe what the Rightedia shove into your heads.

Then tell Obama to put the middle class check back to what they were receiving - everyone got a smaller paycheck. OBAMA LIED when he said they (Middle Class) would not be TAXED and they were. You learned well from Obama on how to screw words to make them say what you think the people want to hear and then change them and say "no this is not a new tax". BS it was not on there before Obama done his crap and he NEVER told the people it would be taken from them on their pay checks.
He is just like a cat always in the litter box covering up his shit.
