<quoted text>What would you call "redistribution of wealth"? The politicians aren't going to re-distribute theirs or their contributors' wealth. Get a clue, have you noticed what you are paying at the pumps, guess how much is federal taxes. They will get the money one way or the other for their handout programs.
As high gas prices was not Bush's fault, it's not Obamas fault.

OPEC controls gas prices for the most part. You might want to look them up.

Save your "open the pipeline" talk. That deal would drop gas prices about 2 cents.

Handout programs??? Don't make me laugh. Republicans have been supporting those same programs in every election since FDR...

Do some research, then get back to me.

Federal gas taxes were 18 cents a gallon during Bush, they now exceed 50 cents. How's your comprehension skills? The Handout programs had revenue to support them during Bush, now the revenue has dropped and the dems have lied and demonized those who still have a little money. Odimbos tax increases on 250,000 or more was indeed an attack on the middle class, why? They make up a larger part of the whole of the country. The top 1 % will remain that. The middle class are the ones falling into the working poor under this administration.

Obama is president.
The programs will be funded.

I will work and adjust.
You will continue to feed your asinine assumptions with Faux news babble and always show yourself to be a herd following sheep...
And the world is as it should be.
Good for me.
Baaaaaaaaaaaad for you.
You're a liar. Nobody has answered those questions.

Where will the funds come from? Nobody has ever identified where the money will come from. You can't answer the question because you don't know. Just like every other mooch, you just assume it will come from somewhere besides your own pocket. The truth is, there isn't enough money to pay for Obama's government. And, there never will be enough money to pay for Obama's government until money starts growing on trees.
Unless, you can answer this question:

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

You actually have to identify a source of money, which nobody in the world has done.

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

LOL. Of course you realize that these "articles" you post will probably appear on Drudge, and Hannity will be quoting from them this week.
I live in a State where the Left is as crazy in its own fashion as the most rabid right-winger.

A few things that Drudge, Hannity, and Limbaugh say are true, but they include much hot air. I will sometimes listen to their programs when I am on the road, then listen to a Leftist station on the air, and make my own decision as to what seems most practical.

An example is the present gun debate. Some further controls are inevitable after that recent atrocity. At the same time, the wild-eyed proposals of the Left and the Right alike need to be resisted as they will not be good for the social order.

One could make that inept argument. The reality remains that people will put food on their tables and keep a roof over their heads by whatever means necessary. Although the system is not perfect it does do what it promises namely to provide a social safety net in times of strife.
You can offer all the simplistic rationalizations against social assistance that you like, but it isn't going anywhere, nor should it.

You are such an idiot. The value of oil has not changed. Oil is traded in American dollars. When the value of the American dollar goes down, the number of American dollars needed to buy one barrel of oil increases.
The same is true about the price of food here. Everytime everyone besides you who is paying for everything in this country pays more for food, which has been constantly inflating since Obama took office, Obama prints more food stamps. Moochers like you never notice because you don't pay for anything. We pay for everything, so we notice.
You're going to ignorantly collapse the government. Then, because you've already stolen everything in your neighborhood, you're going to have to come to our neighborhoods to find anything to steal. We got an answer waiting for your ass. We know you have to come see us. You know you have to come see us.
See you soon.

<quoted text>Obama administration, Congress criticized on record of following, enforcing laws
By Shannon Bream
Published January 16, 2013
President Obama, for the fourth time in five years, has notified congressional leaders that his budget will not arrive on time.
By law, it is due no later than the first Monday in February. But he's not alone -- the very body that set that and other budget deadlines hasn't done a good job of complying with them in recent years either.
And the budget isn't the only issue where the administration and Congress have taken a lax attitude to following or defending the law, from immigration to gay marriage.
Read more: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/01/16/la...
In four years Obama has only submitted two goddam budgets. And, the sum total of votes from both houses of Congress was ZERO. That's NADA, NOTHING, ZILCH.
Obama gets virtually 100 percent of the black vote, and he can't get even one vote from even the Congressional Black Causus for either of the two budgets he submitted of the four budgets he was supposed to submit.
It's obvious every Democrat in Congress thinks Obama is an idiot.
So, since every Democrat thinks Obama doesn't have a clue about the government, just who expects anyone in Congress to pay any attention to anything from Obama?

In my opinion the election further showed that the majority of Americans despise Freedom and Liberty and can’t give it away fast enough to the government for the promise of a small stipend……..

Wrong. I see your comprehension skills mirror Faux news...

Listen up, sheep:

The gas tax funds Highways, bridges and mass transit and has been 18.4 percent since 1993, liar.

As of today the gas tax is: 18.4%, you fkn liar.

It hasn't changed since Reagan, you fkn liar.

You're insipid babbling about the 250000 dollar tax increase is nothing but right wing Glenn Beck lunacy, sheep.

Once again, two wrongs don't make a right. To steal from the rich(middle class) to give to the poor (victim of circumstances or by choice) is in itself wrong. Middle class have children and elderly parents they are caring for as well. Every dime taken from them to support a bloated entitlement system is less they have of THEIR hard-earned dollars to dedicate to their families. That is indeed wrong.

Lets see...

Bush's grandfather Prescott Bush went into the oil business with the Bin Ladens and stayed with them AFTER 9/11...

Even sent a US plane to get the Bin Ladens out of harms way after 9/11.

Hmmmmm...Haliburton? Chaney? No bid contracts??? That's alot of money for Dick and Bush, huh?

Obama and Bush are nothing alike.

Listen, sheep...Take you Faux news propaganda and "fair and balanced" bullshit to the Hannity show. Maybe they'll entertain your madness.

Motor fuel taxes as currently enacted in many states have significant limitations.

Combined state and federal gas taxes in the United States average 40.4 cents per gallon. Knowledge center, council of state governments. You need to dig a little deeper than just skimming information off the top of the google search, pal.
