    Cutting the rate and percentages of spending increases is not "austerity". Try again
    Funny it seems that any proposal at spending on things like infrastructure, or any thing that increases spending is viewed as blasphemy by conservatives?

    See how fair that is? Good for Debatepolitics, and their policies of being non-partisan!
    Fox is a media outlet. This is the President. You have nothing to offer the country and the country knows it. Figure out who you are, and get back to us. Your own party is at war with itself. We have no time for your nonsense. We have a country to govern.

    It was a proposed budget. Why did it go done in flames when it was a budget that republicans were asking for?

    Your post indicated that it had not been voted on in the House. It received a vote as recently as March of last year when it garnered all of 78 votes which happens to be close to the number in the Progressive caucus...
    I don't often change my signature, but this was just too over the top to let anyone forget with what this country is up against...

    LOL !!! There are over 30 jobs bills in the Senate right now. They were sent there from the House.

    The problem are the things Obama really wanted were passed in the first two years of his Presidency.

    ObamaCare, his stimulus and they have caused massive damage to an already weak economy.

    What exactly should the Senate pass to help Obama out ?

    A little over the top, don't you think? Is there anything special you're offering today?

    The prowqaaa. blem is the things Obama really wanted were passed in the first two years of his Presidency.

    ObamaCare, his stimulus and they have caused massive damage to an already weak economy.

    Many of those bills had stunts in them like repealing the affordable care act, defunding planned parenthood, ending food stamps, and other things that had nothing to do with jobs.

    Hit a nerve with my post? I remind you that nearly half the country voted for Romney, so you are speculating that millions of people have nothing to offer? Interesting that our system has worked for so many years, contrary to what you believe. Sad for you...

    Is that what creating massive structural debts, trillion dollar a year defecits, higher unemployment, 8,500,000 people disappearing from the labor force, a shrinking economy, massive central bank injections, monetizing the debt, raising taxes on the peoducers and increasing the dependent class is called ?

    "governing" ?
