    Sad… (and ignorant too)

    So, did Congress pass a budget like they were elected to do,
    or did they just pass themselves another pay raise?

    You truly expected them to do something? What an optimist you are!

    Just saw on the news that the Senate passed a bill on the tax structure. I wonder if anyone in the House will read it before they vote on it.

    Bad wreck, but everyone survived. Doesn’t even look like they got hurt. Maybe that means we can survive the impact of this stupidity as long as we learn from it.
    And also, American cars are much safer than they used to be. ;)
    I kind of feel the donkey was in the back seat yelling while the elephant was constantly grabbing at the steering wheel.
    Too bad Obama can’t control his party or influence the republicans.
    Besides, Obama can’t be the designated driver….the Secret Service doesn’t let him drive.
    With hopes that 2013 will be better,

    Just what “day” did he save? He went on TV and blamed Republicans (even though Harry Reid and the Senate held up voting on anything of substance), and used the phrase “balanced approach” even though he has never considered spending cuts nor will he ever implement them.

    “Obama saves the day – just as you didn’t.”

    Dr. C: Happy New Year. For cartoon purposes he may have saved something but in reality both parties, starting at the top, have failed the American people to do anything more than make a cosmetic change to a problem that requires radical surgery. Obama, Reid, Bohner, and McConnell all basically failed the American people and make us look like a laughing stock to the world. If it weren’t so serious it would be a lot like slapstick comedy…

    “Obama wrote a royal proclamation giving them a pay raise. (Oh, that’s “executive order”, I keep forgetting.)”

    That is the greatest insult of all. They sit on their hands and do nothing and get a raise. If I had their record when in the business environment I would have been fired.

    Well finally, we agree on something, gore bane. Let’s go over the cliff. Really more like a curb to step off of. It won’t hurt.


    As long as everyone is paying their fair share in taxes, I’m happy.

    The Reeps ran up the debt to starve the government of money to fund social programs. Now they get to cut those programs in the name of austerity for the poor.

    I’m not a “neocon,” but I believe in fiscal responsibility.

    Seriously, you on the left keep saying everyone has to pay their “Fair Share,” but you keep refusing to define what that is. It’s just a code word for we want more money from those who make more because we can’t be responsible with our current level of income.

    So, I’m to be penalized for investing in my education, risking my income, savings, sacrificing my time and improving myself to increase my salary and improve my lot in life?

    If I make more then you I am paying a higher percentage of my income in Federal taxes then you are, it’s really quite simple, if you are taxed at 23% on your AGI and I pay 32% on my AGI, then I am paying more then you.

    Stop the word games.

    @D PB

    A while ago I offered an idea of how “fair” works.
    Everyone pays 0% federal income tax on the first $30,000 earned.
    5% on the next $20,000.
    10% on the next $50,000.
    15% on the next $50,000.
    20% on the next $50,000.
    30% on the next $100,000.
    40% on the next $100,000.
    50% on the next $200,000.
    60% on everything above that.

    Everyone is treated exactly the same way. As soon as you enter a bracket, you pay what everyone else in that bracket pays.

    The numbers can be adjusted depending on circumstances, but the principle stays the same.

    It’s Boehner insisting on being the driver, and he’s blind drunk.
