Obama to GOP: To cut deficit, eliminate tax breaks for th...

The tax cuts "for the rich" were actually tax cuts for all taxpayers, something you Democrats will never admit, but there it is. To agree to raise the debt ceiling in exchange for tax cuts and a balanced budget amendment is more than reasonable. But that shouldn’t even have to be considered a compromise. I would think all you Dems would want spending cuts too...why don't you? Why do you want to run us into the ground? Why do you want us all to be driven deeper and deeper into debt? Speak up...what do you have to say for yourselves?  (Jul 28, 2011 | post #1551)

Default fears abound as lawmakers seem at a loss on how t...

Our annual revenue is $2 trillion and the interest on our debt is $200 billion, so with proper prioritization there is no way we need to default on our debt…unless the president chooses that we will. The Republicans have been compromising – proposing an increase to the debt ceiling in exchange for spending cuts and a balanced budget amendment – more than reasonable. Yet Obama is threatening to veto. He and Geithner paint a picture of doom and gloom before the American people, but then assure their bankster buddies behind the scenes that everything will be alright. The goal, of course, is to push the American people deeper into debt to the banking mob. The continuous printing of money (i.e. the Fed buying Treasury bonds) requires us to pay more and more interest to the Fed – which is a private bank. Meanwhile the Fed will continue to bail out the other private members of their banking cabal – all the while sucking value out of our dollars. This is what happens when a country’s currency is backed by nothing and is controlled by a private central bank. And Obama the puppet is 100% complicit (as was GWB before him).  (Jul 27, 2011 | post #3)

Obama deficit-cutting plan would tax rich

Who said anything about CEOs? Spending more than you take in puts you into debt. Taxing small businesses stifles job growth. These are simple facts. But I suppose you have to reach for the easy, "oh you love CEOs!" since there's nothing else to say. Oh, and I eat widows and children for breakfast.  (Apr 14, 2011 | post #444)

Obama deficit-cutting plan would tax rich

The mathematically challenged Democrats seem to want to drive us deeper and deeper into debt – but they’ll never be honest about it, which is why they did not pass a 2011 budget even when they had majorities in both houses. They just want to continue the same tired rhetoric about how trying to live within our means is bad for women, minorities, children with autism, etc. – as if chronic deficit spending is just another viable option (that’s why they keep saying we can spend our way out of debt). This president is the most divisive in history and has been in full campaign mode since 2008.  (Apr 14, 2011 | post #436)

Obama deficit-cutting plan would tax rich

9% of small businesses make more than $250K a year, but these 9% do 75% of the business, providing a corresponding number of jobs. Raising taxes on small businesses kills job growth – but when has Obama ever really cared about job growth? It's all about government control of as much of the economy as possible (i.e. socialism).  (Apr 13, 2011 | post #212)

Hoyer faults GOP for government shutdown threat

The blame lies with the Democrats and no one else. They could have passed a budget six months ago when they had a majority in both houses, but they did not want to float a $1.6 trillion deficit before the election. If they won’t even agree to the few small cuts the Republicans are calling for, we should not expect that they have any intention of ever fixing the problem. They can try to blame the Republicans, but their real enemy is mathematics.  (Apr 8, 2011 | post #28)
