    Good Ole Dependable Oliphant………..you can always count on his being wrong. Obama planned on going going over the so called “cliff” from the beginning. Most Republicans oppose sequestration because of the defense cuts and would prefer a negotiated budget.

    If they oppose it so much, they could have fixed theproblem last year. In trying to force Obama’s hand, or hope for a different election outcome, they’ve put themselves in theis position. Be careful what you wish for!

    “….What about keeping what you earn & earning your keep? …”
    .
    Speaking of Europe, Greeks didn’t believe in paying taxes and look where that took them. Countries need to pay their bills and to do that revenue needs to be raised. Part of being a responsible citizen is sharing in the nation’s costs. It is you who is expecting something for nothing.
    .
    And to blame the Dems is ridiculous. The nation was going into financial free-fall in 2008 when Obama took over.

    Apparently the Democrats have already jumped and they are viewing the results.

    “What about keeping what you earn & earning your keep?”
    -
    What about paying your debts?
    -
    “…I feel sorry for this mess that they’re leaving my kids…”
    -
    If the mess you refer to is our debt, then shouldn’t we pay it off?
    -
    “…I blame the Dems & their gifts to those who don’t or haven’t earned a thing.”
    -
    Our national debt is due to several factors. For you to try to pawn it off on people you’ve demonized while ignoring everyone else who ‘got theirs’ is irresposible self-delusion.

    Amen. But of course, it’s much easier to lay blame on others than to accept your resposibilities as a citizen.

    Yeah, we should be more like Cuba and North Korea—they don’t have any rich peole there.

    Except for the rulers….

    You do know that if you took ALL the money the top 1% have, it’ll run the country at the current spending levels for about 8 days?

    Then who will they come after?

    Does that include the 47% who do not pay income taxes? Should they be included, too?

    Dems may be “tax and spend”, but they spend for the public’s good. Repubs are “spend and borrow”, then they blame the dems. Look at Bush and Reagan. As far as “deserve” the rich man’s money, do you really deserve it if you inherit it? Work should be rewarded and so should investment. We are all in this together and we should all pay fair taxes.

    The sequestration should begin with the Senators and Representatives forfeiting their pay, per diem, until a budget is reached. Then see how fast they get things done.

    Y’know, I’m drawing SS, was on disability for some years, yet I paid income tax on my SS, pay sales taxes, gas tax, etc…who
    are the dimwits who say the 47% don’t pay taxes?
