We the poor middle class tax payers, personal spending cut is never a compromise it's a must.

"He's reaching out to Democrats who understand we have to make serious progress on long-term entitlement reform..."

give me a break. when reducing $85 billion from the budget still means an increase from last year, and that becomes a "national emergency", don't try to act like all of a sudden you are interested in entitlement reform. after all, obama has said on numerous occasions that we do not have a spending problem in this country.

Obama and all politicians might get more support if they would quite using candy coated words to try and get things done. Instead of lumping people on Social Security into what they want to call an "entitlement program" go after the disability cheats, food stamp abusers, welfare abusers, doctors who will right a prescription for anyone who will pay, businesses who pay cash to employees so they can retain disability or unemployment, farm subsidy abusers and the list goes on. These are the true entitlements, something for nothing. If you pay for something all your working life, key words here "WORKING LIFE" social security is a deserved thing, not an entitlement. In the little community I live in I would love to be paid a 5% commission on the savings I could find for government money abusers. I would be a rich man pretty quickly. start where the problems really are.

Obama,

If Americans ran their households like your trying to run the country,

We'd be in the same financial catastrophe you're in!

You made it, it's yours, own up to it,
SINK WITH IT!

I see you forgot this one from John, The Crier of the House, Boehner

When you look at this final agreement that we came to with the white House, I got 98 percent of what I wanted. I'm pretty happy
