    Let's put to bed the belief that Obama cares about the deficit and the debt? Again he proposes a higher budget than he will get and when it is rejected will come back and claim he cut the deficit. What justifies an increase in spending with an 18.2 trillion dollar debt?
    300bn in new taxes, apparently, which would in theory reduce the deficit a little from the baseline. What he never seems to get is, right or wrong, the people want lower deficits and debt. WHich makes his proposals dead on arrival. Even Dems in congress wont support a budget which allows the deficit to go up. They cant win votes supporting that.

    The fiscal 2016 budget proposal would leave a deficit of $474 billion. Obama's budget plan never reaches balance over the next decade and projects the deficit would rise to $687 billion in 2025.

    There IS a lot to cut out, people just need to accept that they dont need probes on mars, free community college, bridges to nowhere, etc etc. There is literally hundreds of billions of spending at the very least of things that we dont need. They are luxuries, which we dont have the luxury of affording right now.

    You are talking about the symptom not the disease. Sure dropping our 483 billion deficit to 300 billion would help but long term it doesnt fix anything

    Do you have any clue as to the actual role of the Federal Govt? Explain to me why we need a 4.0 trillion dollar Federal Budget.

    Where has it been proven that long term a "fix" is required?

    What this shows is that the liberal brainwashing is working and Gruber has a growing list of uneducated voters. You have no idea what the role of the Federal Govt. is or was intended to be therefore there isn't a tax dollar that you wouldn't spend. The 18.2 trillion dollar debt hasn't solved a social program so your answer is just throw more money at it.

    How does 300 billion added to the 18.2 trillion dollar debt help?

    Post 13 shows you aren't alone in understanding the role of the Federal Govt. and public opinion polls show Gruber to be right on in evaluating the electorate
