    It's more comprehensive than what we have now

    It was an example of Democrats shirking their responsibility and Obama's failure to lead in offering a full budget for 2011. They didn't want to give the electorate more ammunition for the 2010 elections. Now they want the public to buy it is the Republicans fault. The brainwashed will buy it, but those with common sense won't

Republicans have a plan, where is the Senate Democrat Plan and the Obama leadership?
    The mistake the Reps made was going on record first, publicly making themselves a political target. If they seriously want to help the economy, they should find ways to compromise with the Dems, and do it while there's still time.

    Closing down the govt would be the right thing to do that way the govt. wouldn't be doing any more harm. We have a 1.7 trillion dollar deficit in this fiscal year and you don't think you can find 61 billion to cut?

    $1.7 trillion deficit will be covered by the Fed reserve, as it always is, and added to the National debt, and no economist can accurately predict how much the debt critical mass is, or how long it will take to get there.

    This is Obama laying out the hoped position of "I'm trying to work with the GOP but they are the party of NO!"
    Is this a joke? No one has attacked the Dumb-ass in Chief more than I have right along.

    So you think you just print money to cover the deficit? Of course that is the way liberals think. What does that do to the value of the dollar? 1.7 trillion will put us almost equal to the total GDP of the economy. You don't have a problem with that?
