    Ummm. In 20 feet of water, if a fella doesn’t swim, sooner or later he sinks. Suppose we get the economy swimming instead of measuring and remeasuring and whinging over the depth of the water? Just a notion…

    Obama isn’t interested in any of those things anymore. He’s busy expanding his model airplane collection to more areas of Africa. Now’s he’s sending Marines as “technical advisers” to Africa as well. When was the last time I heard that term??? Oh yes, it was Viet Nam!!! Why the hell don’t we ever learn from our mistakes? Obama doesn’t seem to understand Einstein’s remarks about the definition of insanity. Just send John Kerry to Africa, he will bore them to death…

    Sure, let’s do that.

    So we are awash in debt to the tune of 16.584 TRILLION dollars and rising by the second.

    A deal was struck by both parties to “force” spending cuts if agreement on where to cut could not be achieved.

    None of the representatives can seem to get their collective heads out of their rear ends so, nope, no agreement.

    Obama vowed to veto ANY attempt to modify sequestration so he must be for it.

    We are talking about 2.3% reduction in spending.

    We have a projected revenue of 2.9 trillion for 2013

    http://www.usgovernmentrevenue.com/fed_revenue_2013US

    We have project spending of 3.8 trillion for 2013

    http://www.usgovernmentspending.com/federal_budget_fy13

    So that means that we will need to borrow 900 billion dollars to make the ends meet OR we can find a way to cut some of that.

    If we cut 85 billion of the 900 billion that MUST be borrowed we will still need to borrow 815 billion. That 815 billion will go directly to the bottom line of the DEBT.

    So here we are swimming in debt, you want to save the swimmer, pull him out of the water because, as you say, " if a fella doesn’t swim, sooner or later he sinks." And yet your solution is to increase the depth of the water and move the “land” farther away.

    Not very logical.

    The people voted for Obama. We are stuck with it. His opposition proposed revenue increase by reforming the tax code. But the people said no that isn’t what we want. They wanted to “tax the rich”. OK so the rich got taxed. It produced very little in the way of revenue. NOW you want to go the route of the republicans by “closing loopholes” in the tax code. And STILL, you fight tooth and nail not to examine the spending of this government and cut out the waste.

    The thing is they are not spending cuts just a slowdown of how fast we are going into debt.

    Keep in mind that Congress passed the Gramm-Rudman Act that initiated the idea of sequestration. And keep in mind that only Congress can pass a budget that would satisfy the requirements to prevent sequestration. Finally, while Obama must sign the legislation enacting sequestration, the President does not have anything to say about what gets cut and what doesn’t. It’s all formulaic and automatic.
    -
    The ball is in Congress’ court, which is where they least like it. Obama is essentially powerless in the matter. Things could have been fixed before the end of 2012, but Republicants and Dumbocrats were unwilling to give on the important issues. I like the idea of just laying the facts out before them and saying “either you fix it, or you live with the consequences.”
    -
    Congress started it, Congress must end it.

    Come on, Stevie. Obama knew this would happen.
    You have lost your grasp on reality.

    HA! another classic from McCoy to my Fav page…

    When you try to part a ‘tax and spend’ leftist from his piggy bank, he’s certain to throw a fit.

    These Spenders are mentally ill. The Govt Checkbook should be taken away from them. Trouble is, the voters accepted the promise of a Free Ride and re-elected the professional politicians.

    @Mr. King

    “… In your fantasy world …” You left out the Republican-passed budget proposals that Obama threatens to veto and that Senile Reid refuses to let the Senate vote on.

    “If we cut 85 billion of the 900 billion that MUST be borrowed we will still need to borrow 815 billion.”

    I’d like to add that of the $815 billion that will need to be borrowed that over $350 billion of that will be eaten up paying interest on what we’ve already borrowed. There is something about this that doesn’t make sense me, borrowing money to pay interest on money we’ve borrowed.

    Any law, constitutional amendment, or policy that is put into place to force people to do their jobs shows that those people aren’t doing their jobs. Sequestration is just such a policy.

    Here’s the crux of the biscuit: government spending must be reduced. Any way it is done, people are going to lose their jobs. No one wants to be seen as being for job loss, so no one does anything. Everyone waits for the other party to suggest something so they can say, “See? They want job loss.” Both sides are willing to wait for the other one to suggest something. Meanwhile, main street hurts badly.

    This is a symptom of a much larger problem. Our only capability as a country is to STOP VOTING THE BUMS BACK IN.

    Just as an aside, I have been watching this site off and on for months now, and I have yet to see anyone say, “President Romney would have done this/ would not have done that.”

    If Mr. Romney would have been a better candidate, Mr. Obama would be unemployed at this time. Not everyone who voted for Obama is a welfare cheat. Some of us felt it would be even worse if there was a President Romney.

    Where have you been? The Republicans increased taxes on the Rich in late 2012.

    Stop fabricating the truth.

    The Truth is the deal was Obama agreed to tough Budget Cuts if The Republicans increased taxes on the Rich, The Republicans upheld their end of he bargain, not Obama wants to renege on his end of he bargain.
