    You a part of the problem then. In fact, our form of government requires compromise. It is the only way for it to function. Some say republicans can't govern. If true, this may be why.

    if we don't have the money to pay benefits to people who have already paid into the system over the course of their entire careers, then we don't have the money to nation build in Iraq, Afghanistan, or anywhere else.

    bring them all home.

    Oh good you are back. I'm still waiting for your answer to my question. What is the threat Iraq presented that necessitated us waging war on them?

    so far there have been two compromise agreements that we have become aware of, and the same man killed both of him.

    That YOU know of. Your lack of knowledge or understanding, as well as your blind partisanship cannot take the place of the truth.

    the only plan the president has put in writing in the last two years is this one

    President's budget sinks, 97-0 - TheHill.com

    it looks like another is being put together tonite---it's gonna have trillions in cuts and no new taxes

    cuz the president compromised

    good thinking

    Key words, in writing. Not equal to no offers.
