    You will also notice that the original plan had more cuts that had to be ammended before the bill was voted on. Just because they are not cutting spending in the areas that YOU FEEL they should, does not mean that they are not attempting to offer budget plans that reduce unecessary government spending.
    Until Republicans offer plans to significantly cut our most wasteful spending (the military-industrial complex and our unfunded optional wars), the American public will not accept further cuts to those American citizens who already suffering. You seem to forget who calls the shots in our type of government.

    You seem to forget that I am part of the American public and I am most definately not the only person that feels our entitlement programs need to be reformed. The majority of the American public continues to point fingers and look around like a bunch of helpless idiots instead of taking steps to better themselves.

    I am all for cutting spending and at no point did I disagree that we need to reduce military spending significantly, but for you to try and ignore the other areas that need improvement is simply stupid and counterproductive.

    Instead of acting like a spoiled little child, just back up your statements or shut the **** up and learn something before you go out and vote for more idiots.
    Now it is you who apparently has no idea what they are talking about. You are engaging in childish games. Speak clearly. State your case. Say what your point is.

    Go back 1 page and read it. There is no point in restating it, it is in writing. If you can't show me the respect of reading what I have to say before replying, then why would I take the time to lay it all out again for your convenience? I understand it is the position of liberals that they should be able to do or say what they want to anyone without any sort of response, but in reality where the rest of us live if you get loud with me, expect me to return the favor.

    You are playing childish games.
    You do what far too many try to do when the ace you thought you had up your sleeve is shown to be nothing of the kind. You fall back on "I already proved this to you" or "you did not read what I wrote" or a lame version of "you are not paying attention to my points" or other such complaining.

    If you have a coherent case to make, state it.

    Uhm, how are you even going to comment on what you think I said if you didn't even bother to read it. What part of "I already made the point and it is in writing 1 page back" is hard for you to comprehend? Is there a reason that you are avoiding reading what I already wrote? Just go back and read it instead of trying to discredit me through your pathetic attempt at a pissing contest. Do you have a good answer as to why you feel it is necessary for me to repeat something that was already said? If you would have read it in the first place you would not be here asking me about it....

    You haven't made any point. That's the problem.

    I have already posted my positions, to Cpwill, regarding the improvements that need to be made to address SS and health care.

    You still have provided no evidence to refute my claim above that the GOP has offered no plan to significantly cut spending for the military-industrial complex and the unfunded optional wars.

    Additionally, on the thread topic, 80% of the US voters agree with my position that we need to eliminate the tax cuts for the rich to help reduce the deficit. We'll just have to see how those numbers play out next November.
