    There was absolutely no reason to create this artificial deadline on deficit reduction talks. Discussions have been going on for months and should have gone on for as long as necessary to achieve a sensible compromise.
    More proof you are a moron as I never listen to that knucklehead. You have too weak a grasp of the issue so I will not respond to any more of your nonsense.

    Great another knucklehead joins the discussion. Now it's racially motivated. Must be a full moon or this site is a magnet for folks with with few skills but time to kill. S&P racist? Disgusting.

    It's understandable. A cornered animal will often attack.

    If not for the Democrats's notion that the government can fix the economy, we wouldn't be where we are.

    I must disagree. The GOP got 98% of what they wanted. Its not the Dems fault. If the GOP got what they wanted then why did this happen? Ill tell you! No new revenue coming in. This is 100% on the Tea-Publicans. Dont get me wrong.... I like what they wanted BUT they played politics. I also like what the Gang of 6 wanted BUT.... because of bull crap politics the GOP didnt go for it. It was a dog and pony show - just like every other "budget cut", the accounting is a scam, and typically the cuts never happen.

    Even in this deal, the spending is over the next two years, but the "cuts" would be over 10 years, and would still add over $10 trillion to the national debt. So after two years, where do they get the cuts for the next debt ceiling increase?

    Take a step back and look at the big picture - it is another smoke and mirrors trick that only kicks the can down the road.

    Ah, more quality input from apdst. No matter how degenerate the discussion is, you seem to be able to make it even worse.

    So, where are the "smart" folks from the Republican side? What great leadership have they shown? They seem willing to let the economy go in the toilet with no facts to indicate that what they want will do anything positive. People who think that there is no difference between believing and knowing are really dangerous. And these Tea Baggers are the worst. Their behavior is irrational and destructive.

    Ladies and Gentlemen please stop fighting. We have a legitimate problem and this isnt fighting. We are as dysfunctional as DC when we do this.

    I am a Democrat and I take some the responsibility for this mess. We need to reduce spending but cutting domestic spending right now would be bad for the economy. Consumer spending is already so low, that would hurt even more. We need to raise taxes on the upper 1% and possibly repeal the Bush tax cuts altogether, until people start spending again.. This will bring in billions, helping to offset some of the cuts we will have to make. The next thing to do is to reform welfare, and create a system to more efficiently check for abuse. This includes need testing for SS and Medicare. Finally defense spending needs to be cut.

    Liberals and Conservatives can either work together or fall together. There is no in between. Neither side will be happy but each side will be leaving future Liberals and Conservatives a better America.
