    Re: House passes huge GOP budget cuts

    every week we fail to act is costing us on the order of 50 billion we don't have

    U.S. sets $223B deficit record - Washington Times

    is there even that much richness to tax it out of?

    50 billion a week?

    hurry, harry

    act on the slasher's excellent speech, his great speech

    we need major budget reform---fast

    GAO Finds Massive Waste, Duplication - FoxBusiness.com

    on march one, only 45 days ago, no less than the GOVT ACCOUNTABILITY OFFICE reported that it had found a full HALF TRILLION dollars of waste and duplication and fraud, mismanagement, corruption...

    further, "most of it came in fiscal years 09 and 10"

    moreover, MOST programs have never been "evaluated for efficiency"

    "little is known of the effectiveness of MOST (emphasis mine) programs"

    this is G-A-O talkin

    NO MORE MONEY for managers so morose

    the G-A-O also determined that CAP AND TRADE (which, thank the lord, is DEAD, america simply could not stand a BLOW like that to ENERGY in times like these) would COST the united states consumer an entire TWO HUNDRED BILLION per year

    or 1800 dollars per household

    THIS is the real barack the slasher

    this is his HEART

    know the man

    Then raise revenue... the idea of cutting taxes (which by the way is a cornerstone of this so called budget) when we are "broke" as you put it, is absurd. To use the over-hyped family budget idea, last time you had a family budget issue, wasn't the first thought... its time to make more money (and cut expenses).

    One third of the current deficit was cause by revenues falling off in the recession. 2009 collections were $2.1T, down from $2.5 in 2008 and off by $700B from the expected 2009 collections.

    Because corporate lobbyists own Congress, even write all the bills, give huge donations to them, make them dependent on these donations, sorely needed to finance their next elections, all based on job security, the desperate need of all politicians.

    Wrong... Americans don't know what they want... They only react to buzzwords and fear mongering.

    that is oozing BS
    you dems claiming you care for the working class is the same as coke dealers claiming they care about the addicts while blaming those who want to wean the junkies off the blow are being mean to them

    Keeping people dependent and sucking on the public teat is how you dems show how much you care for other Americans

    And despite being asked many many times by many many people you have utterly FAILED to present any actual verifiable evidnece that
    1) Democrats do this, and
    2) Republicans do not

    But yet again we have the pontifications of Turtle - statements of what he believes based solely and completely on what he believes simply because he wants to believe it.

    your studied avoidance of the obvious is amazing

    using logic and common sense would cause reality to smack you in the face like a wet pontoon.
    tell us Haymarket-what party keeps calling for more social spending?

    what party enacted the new deal and great society?

    why do you dodge facts/
