    great point-if those leaches had to pay for the government spending they want I suspect they would not be so quick to vote for big spending pimps who pander to them

    I hope that neither side budges. But if the one term Marxist president wants compromise then let him propose massive spending cuts. And we will agree to them. Then offer cuts of our own.

    everyone should pay something in terms of income tax if the dems are serious about decreasing the deficit

    dems ignore the fact that there are sound reasons for this beyond actual revenue

    too many people are disconnected from the reality that government spending costs money.

    too many people have been seduced into thinking that the rich are responsible for bearing all the spending burdens and paying most of the taxes

    that is why so many voters continually vote for more spending-they figure they don't have to pay the taxes to fund that crap

    The right answer is that the American people lose if taxes are raised. And conversely, the American people win if the size of government is cut. So let's cut and cut and cut.
    Then the American people should be smiling today,because Obama proposed reducing the deficit by $4 trillion (which the weeper had originally proposed)now the weeper has it in reverse.Kinda sad really.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Great idea! I support you completely. Now let's hope the Republican leadership stands firm as well. Then on August 2nd we will have the New Independence Day. If the debt ceiling is not raised the one term Marxist president will be forced to pay the debts. And then he can only spend at rate equal to the rate that money is coming in. Instant cuts! Massive, sustained. Complete.

    I suppose that is what is meant by the tyranny of the majority. Or three wolves and two sheep voting on what's for dinner.
