    seeya at the polls, pals
    Republicans only care about cutting entitlements to the poor.

    Most Republicans haven't seen a corporate welfare entitlement that they don't whole heartedly endorse

    Republicans want tax reform that benefits the wealthy and cuts that hurt the most vulnerable, the elderly and the poor.

    Anyone on social security, medicare/medicaid that votes Republican must have a hole in their head.

    The writing on the wall is clear....The GOP is the party for those making over 250K. Everyone else should vote their pocketbook and support the Democrats.

    you guys were against the tax breaks applying to the people who already pay far too much of the tax burden because class warfare and demonizing the rich is how your dem masters buy votes

    making the rich pay more will not change the destructive behavior of the american voter and the politicians that pander to them.

    making those who already pay far more than they should only encourages the politicans to spend more and those who aren't chargedw with paying their share of the bills to reward those politicians with votes

    Re: House passes huge GOP budget cuts

    At one point, when a generous tax break was about to expire, the head of GE's tax team met with Representative Charles Rangel, then chairman of the ways and means committee, and begged for an extension on one knee. Supposedly it was a joke, but GE got its extension, and Rangel got a $30 million gift for New York City schools.

    Actually the choise Is clear. One party will run this country into bankruptcy, to fund it's voter bribe schemes, and one party wants to keep the country solvent.
    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.

    Re: House passes huge GOP budget cuts

    word

    the 2012 campaign will be---does america need major budget reform?

    republicans say yes, barack the slasher says no

    obama sure is dumb not to have seen the position he's put himself in

    harry can never move on the inchoate mumblings delivered by the slasher in his excellent speech, his great speech

    harry can't write it up, he can't write it down, he can't write left nor right

    until harry puts some numbers on paper, the slasher's got squat

    except campaign speeches, hyper partisan and divisive

    americans want solutions, answers, to entitlements

    americans know what's going on, all can see the planets colliding

    and all can see the slasher talking

    and doing squat

    your move, harry

    hurry

    Correction: One party wants to be the working/middle class subservient to their wealthy base. Republicans don't get a rat's ass about the vast majority of this country.
    If they had their way we would all be right-wing "Christians" and 1% of the population would control 99.9% of all the wealth in this country.

    No....the GOP has clearly defined the issue for the 2012 race:

    Do you support the corporate elite or do you support the working/middle class. Vote accordingly.
    Any senior citizen that votes Republican in the next election is unwise.
