    Then Bush should have spend less money...

And the other reason they can't balance the budget is because they don't have a bill saying they can..LOL. I said this before but I still think it's funny. It's like saying you can't go on a diet because you didn't make a New Years resolution in time.
    This a great point. I think you're on to something... the truth!

    Look who invented payroll taxes, social security, welfare, and other social programs.

    Wasteful spending is a buzz word. Nobody is against cutting wasteful spending. It's just that the democrats and republicans consider different things as "wasteful spending."

    Only because Democrats don't follow the Constitution and the founding principles. They invent their own ideology, which is called distribution of wealth.

We can't help it."
    You think only black people are on welfare...

    Re: Republican senators push for balanced budget amendment

    I have had this discussion before with those who invoke the founding fathers as some sort of right wing ideologies. Fact is taxing is one of the first things the 1st congress did. And starting the first bank. Then they taxed whiskey. The compromise of 1790 was designed to have the federal gov. assume the debt of the states. None of which fits into the rights view of the founding fathers. You should perhaps read about the first congress and the other Early bills they passed before invoking them so much.

    answer: they become weapons in the 2012 election. Senator So and So says he's for fiscal responsibility, but he voted to kill a balanced budget amendment that would have solved the deficit. why does Senator So and So hate your children?

    etc...
