    And much like the movie, the characters had what they thought they were missing. Dems have a plan that Republicans don’t like so they declare there is no plan. Using their logic, there is no Ryan/Republican budget.

    One day you guys will wake up. A Plan? Well yeah Obama has a plan. Why confine yourself with a budget when a continuing resolution will get you an automatic increase every year? Result? No budget passed since 2009. Good plan. Shoot, Obama is “required by law” to present his proposed budget (The President, in accordance with to the Budget and Accounting Act of 1921, must submit a budget to Congress each year. In its current form, federal budget legislation law (31 U.S.C. 1105(a)) specifies that the President submit a budget between the first Monday in January and the first Monday in February). So far Obama has NEVER presented his plan on time and the current budget is still being formulated so he is late AGAIN.

    So, even when he gets off the golf course and finally makes his finance guys do their job, his “budget” will call for spending more than current revenue levels. Not “sound financial planning”. Ask anyone at a debt management business.

    You guys keep shouting that the government MUST stimulate the economy. OK, fine, But do so without borrowing.

    As long as we continue to “borrow” to fund programs, as long as we continue to view “deficit” spending as “normal” for running our government, we will NEVER fix the problem.

    At some point we MUST get a handle on this massive Juggernaut we call government. Submit a BALANCED budget proposal. See what we can do with the 2.7 trillion collected. Trim government down. Crack down on fraud and corruption. Shoot, make the delinquent tax dodgers pay up. There’s a couple BILLION right there in just GOVERNMENT workers. The president should take the LEAD in thin and curtail the excessive personal expense a “first family” generates. Use his own money from his bank account to fund every aspect of his vacations. Yeah, reimburse the people for his flights, maybe he’ll stay local instead of going to Florida to golf with Tiger (bet Tiger would have come to DC, just sayin’) costing a million taxpayer dollars.

    The rest of us are doing it.

    Well said. We all know about waste and fraud, but it doesn’t always get addressed. An exception would be HHS. I get a weekly newsletter that describes in detail how many people have been prosecuted or have been found guilty or have been willing to re-pay for Medicare fraud. This is encouraging to me. (Keep in mind that Florida’s governor was the head of a company that was fined significantly for millions in Medicare fraud. Go figure that one, with so many Medicare beneficiaries in Florida.)

    Again, though, we like to do things the hard way. No money for teachers, but plenty for our friends in Egypt. No money for infrastructure, but we’re building another 2000 tanks, because the 2500 we have in use and the 3000 that are sitting in a spare-parts junkyard in Nevada evidently aren’t enough.

    No money for Medicare or Social Security, but plenty for “Star Wars” Missile Defense system, which has so far shown that it is unlikely to ever work. This doesn’t even consider that the most likely threat these days isn’t missile warheads but a single person with a large payload walking down US streets, or soon will be a drone dropping death out of the skies.

    It is time to drop ideology, pet projects, and spending that does nothing other than provide work for people. The more we spend doing work that benefits no one, the less we can spend for work that benefits us all.

    Do the people have the guts to throw the bums out? So far, the answer is no.

    Don’t mind me. Just checking out how those in the bubble are dealing with their disastrous defeat. Hmmm… Wow, I thought this would be fun, but actually it’s pretty sad.

    Try going to the White House website and you immediately see the plan.

    How do you choose between a mindless donkey, a tin elephant without a heart, a cowardly lyin’ Congress, and a leader who only recently came out from behind the curtain.and only because he can get in his balloon full of hot air and go home in three more years. Dorothy is right…it’s going to be a very long road.

    The only problem with this cartoon is…well, it’s a lie. The President has a budget. It’s not something that the Rethuglicans like because it asks the rich to contribute to the upkeep of the Nation (Quick! Drag out the fainting couch and clutching pearls!) and, to at least a certain extent, refuses to throw the poor under the Societal bus (although there are rumblings that he might do that if it looks like he might strike a so-called “Grand Bargain”); but it is a budget.

    (And it’s a heckuva lot better that that travesty of self-delusion that the Rethuglicans released today.)

    Yes, intelligence is SUCH a strong force in the USANOT!… that the Reps think they can pull one over on the nation like the Wizard hiding behind a screen lying to everyone.
    They are the hurricane that the entire country should be barricading themselves from. They can fool 47% of the population into voting for them, but the rest of the WORLD sees clearly that Obama is more the solution than the problem, and that the Reps are a disaster waiting to happen. (This from a Canadian living in Europe… get your heads out of your asses, Republicans… it’s time to see the light!)
