    You didn't really address my point.

    Again: "I have nothing to say... time to spout my rhetoric"
    100 billion dollars is less than 10% of the Obama deficit this year. There are bigger problems than just the war which as I continue to point out is the basic responsibility of the President. The war is an easy target for foreigners who don't have a clue as to where all the Federal Spending goes.

Keep things in the right perspective.

    THAT is the original post....

    Cutting spending isn't the only answer....SOME things are essential..

    How do we pay the govts expenses without taxation?
    What share should the rich, who benefit the most from wars, pay?

    First of all I reject the fact that cutting 200 billion a year will have much of an impact on the budget deficit which was 1.29 trillion last year. There is nothing in that recommendation that focuses on economic growth. It is economic growth that affects tax revenue which is why providing incentive to make money affects that growth.

    Right now Entitlement spending is over 60% of the budget, Defense is less than 1/6 of the budget and without a strong defense nothing else matters. 9/11 according to the GAO cost over a trillion dollars and was a one day event.

    The question is not how do we pay for the govt. expenses, the question is why do we need a 3.8 trillion dollar govt? We have 50 states that provide most of the services to the citizens thus why do we need that duplicated by the federal govt?

    The rich pay the lion's share of the taxes now therefore any cut will affect them more as it should. Why are we arguing over what part of personal income one should keep? As stated Conservatives don't really care how much someone else makes, why do you?

    200 billion is 15% of 1.29 trillion.

    First thing we should do is submit a bill for a trillion dollars to the Saudi govt....
    And cons do care what others make, it is the measuring stick they use to gauge "success"...What gets me is how the middle class is so willing to support tax cuts for the rich. The middle class gets a few hundred in tax savings, the rich get so much more.

    Excuse me but the only battles there's really been in the last 20 years for us to get involved in, was ones YOU CAUSED.

    You went into Iraq I and II and Afghanistan and we sent our boys over there with you.

    How dare you defile the memory of British Soldiers who went over there in support of you.

    And you accuse Obama of disrespecting your allies.

    Jesus Christ.

    Guess this was the part where honour was restored eh?

    **** ** ** ***** *** *** ****
    Absolutely no disparagement meant to the fine British soldiers.

    But the fact is, America ends up doing the heavy lifting, thanks to the passive nature of European governments these days.

    Why do the hard stuff when America will do it for us?

    Do you realize that tax cuts for anyone means they get to KEEP MORE OF WHAT THEY EARNED? You don't like the rich, then stop supporting them with your purchases. Try doing that with your tax payments? Class envy and liberal class warfare is counter productive and violates the foundation upon which this country was built.
