Jan 1, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Reuters

The Senate moved the U.S. economy back from the edge of a "fiscal cliff" on Tuesday, voting to avoid imminent tax hikes and spending cuts in a bipartisan deal that could still face stiff challenges in the House of Representatives.

President Obama got an 89-8 vote in support of the deal that he made to the republican Senate; “He made them an offer they couldn’t refuse”… LOL!

It feels so great to be able o continue to celebrate the landslide victory we gave our Osama-killing President on November 6, 2012.

He did not win - he had to change his tax on the rich - you know the campaign promise he made $250 thousand well it is now $450 thousand for married couples. The House still has to vote and they might add spending CUTS. Obama wants more money and does not want to cut spending. He wants to have money to go on vacations all over the world and the people of America can go to hell.

it's really too bad we didn't go over the cliff so the 47%ers like urinee corps patty would have to pay their fair share in taxes instead of sucking on the government teat like most of the douche bags associated with the liburds and obamaroid.

Lots of talking points from Fox, MSNBC and such. Parrots are as smart as Americans.

Bitter right-wing losers Cry-O-Thon: Day 55 continued –

We finally have a right-winger sighting; it took ‘TedsLiver’ exactly 55 days to find the strength to un-recoil from the fetal position and come from under the bed where he had been shaking uncontrollably, shocked at the results of the November 6th elections.

The Senate Repubs caved and the house will probably do the same. It`s a sick game these political hacks are playing with American lives. We will never see any real spending cuts from this cummunist mooslim lovin administration.

The only way we would have seen serious cuts was to have gone over the cliff. The next 5 generations will be paying for this screwup which was caused by the DC scum in the first place.

I`m retired, but I don`t want my childrens, children and beyond to be saddled with this debt.

Besides the illegals and welfare rats who voted for obama, much of his base doesn`t pay taxes their students who have no clue as to what it takes to survive in this world today. You ever notice that obama spent most of his time campaining at high schools and colleges making promises that he never intended to keep, but these people were gullable enough to believe his Socialist crap. I can`t wait for reality to set in for them. I`d be real surprised if unemployment doesn`t hit atleast 10% by years end. Obamacare is going to destroy the economy once it hits full bore.

OK, pay down the debt, the debt is Treasury Bonds. Who holds those bonds and will get the return of interest and principle? By paying down the debt we will transfer government funds (tax revenue past, present or future) to those bond holders. It that what you want to do?

I sympthize with your sentiments, but your analysis of the underlying causes is incorrect. The problem goes way back in US history, many believe to 1913, when a mechanism for the USA to borrow unlimited amounts of money was established by law. That mechanism still operates today to tell the government it can spend whatever it likes without sufficient taxes to cover the principle of the loan. Payment of interest is all that is required, principle is redemed via another loan (bond issue). It is not simple, very difficult to understand, but the those that profit both understand and will not allow the national debt to go away.
As I said the problem is not new. It was know from the beginning of the country:
"It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. A principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world."
Thomas Jefferson
Obama is not THE problem, he is just the latest of presidents, including all of them since 1980, that have made it worse.
The future of the USA is debt bondage.
