    Another victim of the left-wing propaganda campaign. House passed at least 10 budget plans for the past 2 years, but Dems in Senate refuse to vote on it. Stop shilling for the dems.

    The man on the right is a victim of both parties. He can’t afford to give the 2k maximum donation and he doesn’t own a corporation that can give unlimited funds to a superpac so he has no voice. Rs & Ds can’t hear anything unless the sound of twenty dollar bills being fanned under their noses accompanies the words spoken.
    I have also seen promises, by both parties, to protect the environment, children who are already born, and jobs placed to the side the moment the elections are over.
    I am very sympathetic Mr. Sheneman’s cartoon, I place a little more blame on the super conservatives that run the GOP, but I have watched this party over country attitude grow over the last 4 decades and would cheerfully support legislation for term limits, barring politicians from working for companies who benefited from legislation, as well as cutting all gov’t perks once they are no longer in office.
    Both parties have fulfilled Geo. Washington’s warning that parties would divide and weaken the nation.

    A bad idea is worse than no idea.

    Drew might want to brush up on his math skills. The actual spending reduction that will occur is a tiny fraction of the overall budget; a fraction of 1%.

    The guy on the left only makes 36K? How ever will he afford the $20,000-per-year minimum Health Insurance coverage under Obamacare?

    Perhaps you could use your logic on the Senate GOP to stop them from putting holds on nominees and judges?

    how come we pay taxes on our already taxed income, yet we don’t have universal health care like nations who are at least
    honest about their taxation?

    We don’t have universal healthcare because we let the “free market” handle it. Isn’t it nice to know that we fund so much marketing and additional layers of paperwork.

    Universal healthcare would actually be the cheaper option. Health insurance companies never lower their rates, only increase them as they can, and most of their profit still goes towards executive salary and bonus payouts, not towards the customer side. I pay about $600 per month for insurance when I’m working a contract, but I’m not covered between contracts.
    You already pay for everyone else’s healthcare. If you have insurance, your premiums are based on the average of all healthcare payouts, so if more covered people have catastrophic illnesses, premiums go up across the board. For people without insurance, your taxes cover them already. Anyone who goes through a catastrophic health issue finds most of their expenses are still not covered by the insurance companies (like I did), and have to declare bankruptcy, which means YOU now paid for their healthcare costs, as well as any other debt they may have had at the time. For example, when my wife had leukemia, I had to take 6 months off of work, with no pay, to be a full time caregiver. That means living off public assistance, and maxing out credit cards to buy food and pay for extras like ambulance rides and rent. YOU paid for all of that when I declared bankruptcy, and YOU pay for the same for thousands of others every year to do the same.
    Universal healthcare can work by increasing taxes by about $150-200 a month per taxpayer. That is less than insurance companies charge, and you can eliminate what you pay them, so you come out ahead in your budget. Hospitals and doctors can still charge a copay, but you take away the “surprise – that wasn’t covered” charges. If you want a lower tax increase, cut out some of the defense budget (toilets don’t need to cost $12,500, and I can buy bolts for less than $73 a piece) and it offsets.
    The advantage – no more medical bankruptcies (the number one reason for bankruptcy in this country), which means now YOU don’t have to pay off anyone else’s debt, like you do now.

    @ronald rini

    You are being sarcastic but you have a very valid point. NONE of the people in office need a “paycheck” to get by. They are already wealthy by normal standards. So why DO we pay them?

    Not only that but it’s a decrease on the increase on spending. We will be spending MORE than last year.

    So why is Obama claiming that the republicans want to end the world as we know it on a bill HE signed?

    He is a divider and not fit to hold office. I hope you dems are paying close attention to your POTUS and the games he plays that are not in the interest of the populace.
