    I'm sorry that you dont expect people to live up to their promises, especially when they're trying to get your vote, and that you dont hold them accountable for same.

    AND a mule.

    Cutting spending on what exactly? Social security? Defense? Infrastructure? Education?

    How do you suggest job creation? By tax cuts? It certainly hasn't worked in past decade or so.

    People want tax cuts for the wealthy top 2% (dumb poor people advocating for this makes it laughable), they also want government services and they also want the deficit to be paid for. You can't have your cake and eat it too. Even a 2 year old knows this.

    RIP America. I will watch from afar as you crash and burn.

    people who aspire to be wealthy might not get there but they are better than the tapeworms who won't try but want others to feed them. anyone who desires to be a winner sure won't support laws or politicians who have waged jihad against success

    The only meaningful way to address run-away spending is to address the area in which spending is runnign away -- that is, entitlements.

    It works better than taking money from those that create jobs thru the production of wealth and redistributing it to those that produce nothing.

    A 2-year old also knows you cannot spend more than you have.

    Careful what you wish for - the other side will not be kind to you.

    Re: White House Concedes on Upper Income Tax Cuts

    The only way to meet the budget challenges now and in the future is for Americans to act responsibly and allow all the Bush tax cuts to expire; there's a reason why those tax cuts were passed through Congress under reconciliation rules and thereby were time constrained, and, that reason is staring us right now straight in the eyes: unrelenting red ink for decades to come. It is shameful that so-called conservatives fail to acknowledge that.

    Then The Obama will have broken his promise that no one under $250k/yr will have a tax increase.

    Tax cuts, alone, cannot cause 'red ink'.

    No... the only way to the balance the budget is to reduce spending. Raising taxes would offset a small portion of our excesses, but would fall far, far short of "meeting budget challenges." Raising taxes would also slow what is already an anemic recovery.
