    Republicans sure enjoy spending money on things they never intend on paying for.

    Do you mean increasing the debt by about 6 trillion dollars in the last 4 years? How about a 25 trillion dollar debt by 2020 if the Dumbs get their way?

    Remember, Dick Cheney said that the Deficit didn’t matter.

    Who are YOU to tell HIM that’s wrong?

    Republicans do nothing but demand that Democrats propose all the spending cuts, so that Republicans don’t have to take responsibility for cutting anything.

    WHERE ARE the Republican proposals for spending cuts?

    It’s worse. When Democrats do propose spending cuts from areas that Republicans don’t like, they go ballistic. Just try dumping the multi-billion dollar F-35 and see how many howls you get from Republicans. What Republicans want to destroy (or Privatize, but that’s pretty much the same thing) are the social safety nets. Philosophically, they believe it should be survival of the fittest, the most cunning, the cruelest and those most willing to shape the law to their own ends.

    After the last election results, the GOP isn’t driving a rig … all they’ve got left is a very expensive stretch limo full of old rich white men.

    @NebulousRikulau

    Stay in the present. Obama said in an appearance on a late night talk show he couldn’t remember the amount of the deficit. “It slipped his mind.” Besides that, we need to spend now and deficits aren’t the most significant issue. So that means Cheney and Obama think alike on economics?

    Mitch McConnell put out a framework for changing qualifications age and some other criteria for entitlements yesterday I believe.

    @Chillbilly

    Half the country disagrees with you. Try getting out of insult mode and proposing solutions for discussion, preferably ones with facts, figures or viable solutions.

    Too much coffee and too late a workout on Friday night and I’m up too early and loaded for bear. But, with all the problems that exist, can’t we have an adult conversation and knock off all these petty insults and partisan one liners? It doesn’t matter what Bush, Cheney, or whoever has done something in the past, we have to come up with viable, workable solutions now. Our representatives need to sit down face to face and work out this situation. All this sniping is great for cartoon comment pages and does nothing but perpetuate ill will and divisiveness. Thanks for letting me share…

    What are you all getting so worked-up about? this is a comic strip, for pete’e sake!

    @Mr. King

    Personally, I agree with you. Let the cuts expire, cut back military spending etc, etc. I also understand your point about deficits and conservatives. Both parties grow the size and cost of government.

    This Comic today isn’t too far from the truth. I don’t usually agree with Glenn McCoy but both parties are definitely playing a dangerous game of chicken that will affect everyone rich & poor alike. The only difference is the rich can easily pay higher taxes while the spending cuts in programs like Medicare will hurt the poor the most. There needs to be compromise because name calling isn’t going to solve our problems regardless of party affiliation.

    Congressional leadership doesn’t care about the people. If they did they would “work” more than three days a week and not browbeat their subordinate colleagues into voting for or against bills according to what that leadership wants.

    Boehner was offered 10 dollars in cuts for every dollar in increased taxes, and went on a screaming binge of “NO WAY”! There hasn’t been even ONE single serious offer out of the House under Boehner, and hundreds of filibusters in the Senate from McConnell, nope it’s all the Democrats fault.
