I guess if we quit spending money like it grows on trees that would not help. It has to be tax hikes.

It is real simple what is needed. Political disaster, that is the problem. We now have too many "give me my free stuff" programs and people.
Don't spend more than you take in or you are in trouble! Even when we have had tax increases they always find a way to use it for "new" things! Why should we trust these dirt bags to do anything different!

America rewarded BHO for having neither the skill set, business experience or the desire to save our Nation from being Greece. What an exciting time for America's enemies at home and abroad.

We have kicked it for 4 years, 4 more won't hurt anything. Harry Reid will take care of this. It's only numbers. In 4 years we will have the social changes set in place.

Let's just do what President Obama wants. He saved us from the second Great Depression and got RE-elected. Those two Bozos (Turtle and Boner) didn't just get RE-elected.

We have a government debt bubble pure and simple, all bubbles eventually pop, when this one pops it will be horrible for everyone, you think Obama is the answer what did he do in the last four years to reduce the bubble, nothing, he added to it to the tune of a trillion dollars a year, he is expected to add to it at the same rate the next four years. He does not have a plan for bringing it down, in fact his increased spending makes it worse.

You should be getting ready for the Obama depression.

Americans sent a clear message last week. We will gladly throw our own kids "under the bus" in service to obama's agenda. POTUS promised to bury our kids in Trillion $$ deficits and we didn't have the spine or the backbone to stand up for our own children.

Americans voted for EQUAL OUT COMES........not equal opportunity. The New World Order demands a dramatically devalued future for most all American families.

The Voters have spoken. We voted to crush our own childrens future hopes and dreams and must prepare them for a lifetime of Tax Slavery to Big Brother/Big Union/Big Govt.

Who would be left if Obama falls. He will take Hillary, Biden, Rice, Carney, Axlerod, Ploofe and probably some others as he goes down for Benghazi.
Who would be president?

Speaker of the house is third in line. How is that for a thought for the new congress! Pelosi. Now that would be an even bigger disaster!
