    your predictions are very faulty.
    It's not a 'prediction'. It's happening now.

    The GOP just wants to keep telling lies about cutting the budget. They always promise to do so, and always fail, even when they controlled Congress and the White House

    how does someone who inherits money not pay any taxes? are you saying they just take a lump sum of money (that was subjected to confiscatory death taxes) and do nothing but spend it? so what. how does that hurt you?

    Where is one of those silly pie charts you post pretending to prove such a claim

    dems claim that they will cut spending and need tax hikes to do that. that is dishonest beyond belief

    dems want tax hikes so they can convince the stupid that there is actually MORE Money that the dems can spend on buying the votes of the stupid

    The figure refers to debt held by the public. Obama inherited 6.3 trillion:

Reject it if it increases tax rates on the people who are already paying. Let him come with another plan. Reject it if it fails to cut the 25% growth in government we have experienced since this regime took control. Repeat until we have a good deal. Or walk away from any deal.
    It's the Houses' responsibility to pass a budget, and not just any budget. They have to pass one that has a chance of geting through the Senate.
