    I think we all agree that the spending needs to be cut. It's WHERE we cut that has the people divided.
    No, you shouldn't cut a lot of fat. Americans have been led down the garden path into believing what the very wealthy want them to believe. It's time for a new way of thinking:

    America has the second worst income inequality in the world, only behind Mexico. Once you are able to know and understand that you all should be able to start considering reality. And the reality is, the very wealthy have stolen the piece of the pie that should belong to the people. America also has the highest per capita average incomes in the world. So what's wrong with the picture?

    Clearly the first hurdle to get over is upping taxation on the wealthy. That's how the wellbieing of the poor and middle class is going to be elevated.

    This calls for a new form of capitalism, something similar to Canada's. It's called socially responsible capitalism and it needs to replace America's form of capitalism that is being promoted by the very wealthy in order to feather their beds at the expense of the rest of the people.

    Yes, and not paying $83.33 Billion a month over 12-months would not bankrupt us. There is still $1-Trillion in bills to pay. They can't even get together for $1.3-Trillion in spending cuts over 10-years, and you think we can handle that kind of cut in one year with no consequence. Like I said, I'm pretty much a moron, please explain how this would help our finances as a nation.

    The first place to cut is all social programs not entitlements be returned to the state and local communities and not funded out of the Federal Treasury. Those programs are bloated, full of waste, fraud, and abuse and nothing more than a slush fund for federal bureaucrats. All Foreign aid should be fully scrutinized and cut off to countries that aren't friendly to this country. All entitlement programs, SS, Medicare, and Medicaid be removed from the budget and put back where the belong in Intergovt. holdings and not used as part of the unified budget which should be eliminated. All Excise taxes should go into that lockbox for infrastructure and then let the people decide on the other items that are left as to what should be funded.

    Do Americans really want to support baggers who would try to make it out that Obama is using the military against them by being forced to shut down this monument?

    Do Americans really want ignorant baggers such as Palin to push her ridiculous hate agenda on them?

    Are Americans really that stupid and propagandized with extremist politics?

    I have always got a kick when the Obama hater's cry "Obama's trying to redistribute the wealth." When all they would have to do is take 5 minutes of study to learn that "wealth redistribution" has been taking place for well over 30 years, before we ever heard of Obama, with the wealth being redistributed from the lower and middle classes to the rich. I suppose, in their mind's, that kind of "wealth redistribution," is just fine and dandy. But any attempt to funnel the money back to the lower and middle classes is just pure blasphemy. Fools. All of them.

    All you're really doing is advocating the stripping away of what remains in your country of socially responsible capitalism. Do you really think America can afford to go further in that direction now when your country has declined down the ranks of rich countries to near the bottom in nearly all respects?

    Your country's income inequality is second worst in the entire world. Doesn't that tell you what your push really should be? Do you want to make it worse and force America further down the list?

    You ever wonder why the corporate entitlement programs are never ever mentioned?
