    americans want solutions, budget reform, not excellent speeches, great speeches
    When it comes down to it, Americans couldn't cares less about the budget, if they had, they would have screamed bloody murder when Bush was president. They DO care about having Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid and that's why President Obama and the Democrats will take this legislation and wrap it around the neck of Republicans.

    Sounds about right.

    (Except I may contend that the GOP hasn't gone far enough yet either. Some major budget changes are going have to happen....)

    Re: House passes huge GOP budget cuts

    Turtle asks question which can be answered by a review of the historical record

    tell us Haymarket-what party keeps calling for more social spending?
    Social spending has been voted on year after year in budget after budget by BOTH parties... just as BOTh parties have approved of budgets using revenue from the Progressive Income Tax year after year in budget after budget.

    what party enacted the new deal and great society?
    It was voted on by members of both parties - both initially and in year after year in budget after budget using revenues raised from the Progressive Income tax approved by both parties.

    why do you dodge facts/
    those are the facts. It is you who ignore history in favor of ideology and your own extremist belief system.

    Republicans controlling the House pushed to passage on Friday a bold but politically dangerous budget blueprint to slash social safety net programs like food stamps and Medicaid and fundamentally restructure Medicare health care for the elderly.

    The choice in the next election is becoming more and more clear. There is no question which party represents the interests of the wealthy and which party represents the interests of the rest of the country.

    The GOP fought hard earlier to preserve tax cuts for those making over 250K. Today they showed how they want to pay for those cuts...by slashing money from food stamps, medicaid and medicare.

    The GOP war on the elderly, the poor and the working class continues....

    Exactly, the sides are clear in the class war that is underway in America.

    Its obvious why the tax cuts to the countries safety nets are being proposed, to attempt to make the poor and the middle class pay for the debt created by the wars and tax cuts for the wealthy.

    winning elections sadly requires pandering to the addiction--no new deal and none of this pandering would happen.

    and while some in the gOP do vote for that crap, we all know which party is the main sponsor of this crap

    LOL--more mindless drivel

    tax cuts to the group that now pays more of the federal tax burden than any time in the last 70 years causes deficits but 47%of the population paying no federal income taxes and in many cases voting for more and more spending doesn't cause these problems?
