    I hate having to constantly criticize both sides whenever one side does something stupid...it seems like such a waste of time to me and gets really redundant.
    Repetition is a good thing. At some point it either becomes repetitive or it sinks in.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    From your own article ~

    "White House communications director Dan Pfeiffer said in a conference call Monday afternoon that the Republican plan "enshrines into the Constitution the Ryan plan on steroids." Pfeiffer was referring to the House GOP budget authored by Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), which included significant reforms to Medicare."

    Why should the Democrats go along with cuts to seniors with no concessions for increased revenues from the GOP? Why do you feel it is up to our seniors to bear the total burden of reducing the deficit?

    you seem to have "the White House Communications Director Said It" with "that's what it is". In fact, they are merely desperate to provide themselves some kind of cover. Interesting that you would go on to ask why it's up to our seniors to bear the burden, given that the President's plan calls for them to make sacrifices while the Ryan plan doesnt - effecting only those age 54 and below.

    You do not care about that with Obamacare but here you do. Nice try but the fact is Obama will not let this happen because he has to balance the budget something Obama does not want. Obama wants to spend spend spend this is why he can not agree with the GOP.

    Obama is not for compromise he is for Obama's way or no way.

    I suppose you think those now 54 and below will never become seniors? And you don't care that current seniors would have an extra $6,000 out of pocket costs for health care, so the rich can get an even bigger tax cut than the one they are already enjoying?

    The working class ain't buying it!

    And people wonder why I'm planning my 'early retirement' from the planet. I won't be able to afford to live here anymore.

    What does it matter when Obamacare screws all seniors anyway.

    Obama does not want a solution he wants a blank check

    If I said an asteroid was about to hit Earth, you'd say it's because Obama spent too much money. The point is, your entire argument is a knee-jerk reaction to everything anyone says, and it's really stupid.
