    That is what I said yes. Obama provide the framwork for the committee and they fleshed out the specifics. Are you for or against the bipartisan debt reduction plan by the gang of 6?

    Obama showed no specifics just general information. Does Obama do tax cuts like the gang of 6?

    Obama just provided the framework and let the committee fill in the speciics. So you like the gang of 6 proposal but not Obama's plan it was based on? Interesting. As you wish then, glad you are happy with the gang of 6 plan!

    Looks like there might be a light at the end of the tunnel.

    Or it's a train.
    Seems to me that the soothing light at the end of your tunnel may be a freight train coming your way.

    So now you are claiming that the Bowles-Simpson plan is based on a framework provided by Obama ?????

    That's the funniest thing I've read all day......... I wonder how Obama felt after "his" commission presented "his" proposals and almost every Democratic Congressperson criticized it along with almost every left-wing organization.

    If they presented "his" ideas, why did he ignore it?

    No, if you had read my post, and the source I provided you would know that Obama's deficit reduction framework was based on the Bowles-Simpson plan, not the other way around.

    Stop the BS. It is not based on Obama. Show me the Obama tax cuts in the gang of 6 bill

    Your lies show what a partisan hack you are.


    by the way 5 democrats votes with the GOP last night so it is a bi partisan bill.

    Yeah, its far from ideal from a progressive perspective, but it also has to get passed through Congress. I don't see how a more liberal plan could make it through at this time, do you?
