    What I find disturbing about this new democratic party that seems like a mindless cult, determinded to follow their leader in group think. Where is the outcry abut continuing a war in Afghanistan that costs us more money, $100 billion a year, not the to mention the loss of lives. Where is the outrage in an administration that allows for food and gas inflation that hurts the poorest among us.
    If we combine it with the republican plan and we can get to 10%. Whoopie!

    So you really don't give a flying crap about hurting the poor as long as you can play class warfare....Real good Joe. Thanks for exposing yourself yet again.

    Not sure what the relevance of your post is. I am not in favor of the republican plan, if you can find a post where I say that is the answer you can remind me of that.

    What your response does, is prove jst how unserious people are when discussing this issue.

    I added the smily so you would know I was poking fun at the 5%. I don't think either side is serious about reducing the deficit.

    As it won't pass, he can say anything. It won't be law.

    Minimize deductions, OK for mortgage interest on 1 house, first half million value.
    I'm all for simplifying the tax code, but it won't increase revenues.

    Cut spending on non-essentials, eliminate all subsidies and let the chips fall where they may.
    Define non-essentials, that's the real problem.

    Give federal lands not actually being used as national parks, military uses, etc. to the states to use for their purposes that taxpayers have to cover now.
    Just sell them all!

    No more offshore ownership of corporations, no tax dodges.....corporate tax rate down, but with minimum alternative type tax to preclude what some are doing now, making billions and paying no taxes.
    We should have more of that. Cheaper goods for all!

    Sorry I missed the picture. I agree that neither side is serious. What plays into this I think is that the voters from both parties are not yet taking this issue seriously.

    I agree. I still think most voters have a disconnect. They want programs, but don't see how they have to paid for.

    This is why democracy is doomed to failure.
