    Re: Obama: I'll cut $4 trillion

    not only was it recommended that we create ways to effect economies of the entitlement programs, but those same savings were also found to be needed in defense and other federal operations. and revenues increase
    precisely

    and where's the slasher

    when's his next great speech, excellent speech

    where's hurryup harry

    cuz if something isn't done soon to reform the entitlements, they won't be there for the next generation

    leadership, anyone?

    you cherry picked that report

    And Obama dismissed it out of hand, after he made a dog and pony show of setting it up. Now he wants yet another blue ribbon panel....Why? he has one, and their findings. This guy only want's those that agree with him to have voice. Typical.

    so, you have substituted post count for fact and logic to determine whether you agree with what has been asserted

    why so proud of your application of such a shallow, misleading gauge

    wait a sec.. did I miss something?

    He wants to set up 'another' panel to make recommendations about reducing the deficit/debt?

    Like you said... he made a dog and pony show of setting the 1st one up... then ignored them when he didn't like what they said...until this most recent budget battle went down and he suddenly liked what they said.

    yup.... election time is gearing up alrighty.

    Re: Obama: I'll cut $4 trillion

    Whereas the debt commission’s mix of spending cuts and tax increases reduced deficits by $4 trillion over 10 years, the Obama budget will reduce the combined deficits by $1.1 trillion.
    1.1 trillion over a decade, or 110 billion a year? Since the deficit is currently just over a trillion and a half, that means that he plans to overspend by around 1.4T over 10 years, instead of 1.5T. So, that would add an additional 14T to the debt, effectively doubling it to 28 trillion dollars, or about 280K per taxpayer.

    Nice.

    Maybe Congress has better sense, but I doubt it.

    They didnt cut the debt at all...they reduced the annual federal spending deficit of 1.4 trillion by a total of about 350 million. And you think the solution is to give people that annually spend 1.4 trillion MORE than what they take in taxes MORE money???
