    I’ve lost all hope that our system of government will work. The politicians only care about getting re-elected. The people who vote for these jerks only care about voting for the guy who promises the best perks, regardless of how they’ll be paid for. Let’s just keep voting free stuff for ourselves and make everybody else pay for it, especially those rich buzzards who don’t deserve what they have anyway. This nation is screwed.

    “Chance governeth all” (Ecclesiastes). I’m 100% secular, but I believe that one. So…we still have a chance. JUST a chance…

    Interesting that she left all of those cans behind them. There should only be one. They’re still kicking the rest of them.

    A lot of those problems are because “W” kicked Afghanistan and Iraq “down the road”, and maintained tax breaks, but no, it wasn’t just his fault, Congress (not Obama who couldn’t sustain a veto, even IF the Dems all supported him) must share the blame, Republicans, "blue dogs’, and those Democrats unwilling to stand up for the nation.

    BTW, Tigger, this plan DOES maintain those cuts in payroll taxes for the middle class, but slightly, at just 4% increase, ask just a tad more from those with wealth, raised again to protect many of the “guilty”.

    Now as to cuts folks, let’s start with 20-30% from defense contracting, eliminating insurance fraud in Medicare, negotiating drug prices for Medicare as well, keeping that 1% increase in Social Security tax, cutting all corporate tax breaks for corporations sending jobs overseas, reducing agriculture subsidies to corporates, eliminating all subsidies for tobacco growers, and charging “fair market value” for ALL taxpayer owned natural resources, like grazing, oil and gas, timber, and hard rock minerals(eliminate the 1866 and 1872 Mining Acts).
