    Yes it's interesting that shut down isn't it ? Seems it was over spending cuts, some which included medicare, medical inflation, Medicaid, and education.
    So due to democratic blockage of these program cuts, we are now faced with health care costs that are what they are. Thank you for pointing out who is “really” at fault for our medical costs, and for the deficit in medicare. Laughing..... as you have just shown us, we can now blame Clinton.

    We already have a progressive taxation scheme. We need to raise the rate on the lower bracket, affecting everyone, and bring all brackets to eliminate the progressive scheme. Isn't that what they call a flat tax? The difference from the lowest tax bracket to the highest tax bracket is 10% to 35%. They ought to make it a 22% flat tax. If people from the lower tax brackets use more of the government services then they should pay their fair share.

In its present form, the bill won't make it through the Senate. And if it does, Obama will veto it. It's not hard to understand. That's just the way it is.
    Republicans talked about it throughout the election, which hardly supports your assertion.

    At the cost of jobs and wealth, further increasing the number of businesses that move over seas.

    Good plan.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Oh sure - they can just carry the weight of the world on their shoulders

    If taxing them more and more was helpful or a way to get OUT of these high deficits then why are we still digging DEEPER into dept and DEEPER into an out of control deficit spending streak?

    If your reasoning was logical then all we would have to do was tax the rich more for the next few years and then *voila* - debt and deficit be gone! But that won't happen - we all *know* this.

    The reason why these programs and tactics aren't working, aren't balanced, and aren't self sufficient is because they're not *trying* to spend *less*

    What's the first thing you do in your life when you have maxed out all your credit cards and you're borrowing just to pay off your interest? You assess your situation: where's the money going, why is it going there - is it necessary? Then you STOP spending first - you cut back. . . you STOP racking up the massive debt and once you have ended excessive spending you can then work on *paying down* your debt.

    Same thing goes for government.
