    well, from these details... I don't like it already.

    both Dems and reps are still thinking inside their little ideological boxes.

    It is good you GOPs are committed to your plan and I'm sure you won't mind the consequences of your obstructive negotiations and brinksmanship. The GOP's approval rating has dropped since the brinksmanship over the debt limit deadline while the Dem's approval rate has risen. The TP approval rate is in the 20%s now. I really don't believe having all the power with either party is good for the country, but if the GOP continues to alienate voters that may happen.
    Any proposal with more spending will be rejected as it should.

    If he proposes more sending I'll slam him for it. Your "what if's" are pretty meaningless at this point.

    Sir spamalot. Great argument. You'll go down in history with all of the great thinkers and philosophers at that rate! Thanks for contributing!

    What exactly is there to add? My point is direct and to the point. I should write a book to note that the GOP isn't going to pass anything that increases spending?

    and to think.. this is your only contribution to the thread.

    shouldn't you present an argument before trolling others that have, in fact, provided an argument?

    I think any solution we come up with will include tax increases and spending cuts... but I don't believe it has to be that way....I believe spending cuts alone can solve the problem, but it would involve a fundamental shift in what we see is the job of government...and it would necessarily cause a shift in our global military presence.

    in order to maintain the status quo, we'll have to take the easy way out....unfortunately, doing so will cause the issue to be a perpetual problem.

    I guess that's why the Dems won so big in the midterms. Oh, wait...
