    Re: Obama's FY 2012 Budget

    Here's a nifty chart showing the splitting of the budget and how much an average household would pay for each of these items. Obama’s 2012 Budget Proposal: How It’s Spent - NYTimes.com

    My take: bleh at the upper left hand corner and the voting bloc as gigantic as their lazy asses that supports it; I don't want to pay for their damn medicare.

    Wah, wah, wah....Why won't the mean repubs let him do what ever he wants to do.....boo boo lip.

    Let me tell ya something, liblady was the first to chime in with this banal tripe of "I want, I want, I want....Well, I want a new truck, and brand new house, and a flat screen TV complete with HD Sat service, but we just can't afford it. So, I must make due with my trusty 97 F150, my 30 year old home, and my current entertainment system...Why is it so hard for the lib politicians like Chairman Maobama to do the same?

    And we wish not to pay for you either. So how about we let you pay for you, and I'll pay for me. We can start by giving my to date contributions back, and let me invest them.

    However, maybe you'll answer the questions I asked Boo?

    Great link. I really like the per household cost breakdown.

    Entitlements, debt (the interest with it), and defense. Anything that doesn't hammer these hard seems out of touch. Sure, we're in an economic crisis that's the excuse now...yet the current situation has been in the makings for a long time.

    Yeah, if we cut off the programs now, no one would get their contributions back.
    I don't expect anyone to pay for me.

    Thanks for posting, great link. There is a lot of room to actually cut here especially on items that are already funded at the state and local levels yet Obama is increasing spending at the national level.

    So when you add up the per household cost you pay that much in taxes?

    I'm actually more interested in the total household hit and how it was calcualted. I'm getting something different anyway.

    I pay a significant amount more, actually. Even after tax deductible donations I make.

    Everyone needs to really understand what funds these items, Federal Income Taxes, SS taxes, Excise taxes, and Corporate Income taxes. SS should be removed as should the expenses but that is for another thread. Right now 47% of the people in this country pay zero in Federal Income Taxes

    I'll back and see if I missed any questions.

    However, if you want to do what you suggest, you have to say people needing emergency care who can't pay, don't have to be treated. As long as they are treated, and can't pay, you will pay for them.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
