    Obama Officially Threatens to Veto "Cut, Cap, Balance"

    Obama officially threatens to veto 'Cut, Cap and Balance' - TheHill.com

    Obama officially threatens to veto 'Cut, Cap and Balance'

    he White House on Monday warned President Obama will veto GOP legislation to “Cut, Cap and Balance” spending and the budget.

    In a statement of administration policy, the White House Office of Management and Budget labeled the GOP bill as an “empty political statement.”

    The House Rules Committee is expected to take up the measure on Monday, and it is likely to receive a floor vote on Tuesday. The measure would cut spending in Fiscal Year 2012 by $111 billion, cap future spending at 18 percent of gross domestic product and approve a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution. It would also raise the debt limit

    In its place, Obama and Democrats propose "Spend, No-Limit, Deficits"....or their other plan of "Tax, Tax, Tax, Tax".....and while Democrats will support some Spending cuts....its only if they are offset with Spending increases.......

    ........this is how liberals balance budgets....why every Democrat state and city is Bankrupt....and why every liberal utopia around the world is Bankrupt and approaching collapse.... Liberalism leads to Bankruptcy every time its tried.

    It's easy for him to say when he knows that it will never get through the Senate but let the Dems block the only solution to come close to passing that would solve the problem.

    We will wait until he comes up with a plan that might do better than his 0-97 budget did.

    that's okay. the fact that he was foolish enough to say that he would will make for plenty a campaign ad in 2012.



    Tell me again about how it's the GOP that is refusing to put forth anything and screaming my way or the highway? someone has been projecting.



    ya'll remember how you voted, now.




    ...The president's veto threat was followed by a full-on assault from administration officials who blasted the GOP proposal as "extreme, radical [and] unprecedented."...
    ...they think.... that a balanced budget.... is extreme, radical, and unprecedented.



    yeah. that's gonna play real well.

    Nobama strikes again.

    No, I don't want spending capped...
    No, I don't want to cut anything meaningful, and
    No, I don't want to balance the budget!

    And you're not touching my trains either!

    Now, you either get that increase on my allowance real soon AND play "economy" they way I want to play it, or there just won't be an economy and y'all can starve for all I care.

    You guys don't realize he's actually winning this battle do you? By a lot.

    Obama approval on debt ceiling issue: 43%
    GOP approval: 21%

    The GOP have turned into stubborn reactionary ideologues with no interest in compromise since Obama entered office. Voters are starting to realize it.

    As much as the right whines and bitches about Obama being this "leftist", "my way or the highway" kind of guy you do realize he has compromised on so many of his "radical" (which are not even radical) ideas. Hell he is even talking about cutting SS, Medicare, and medicaid... Seriously....

    Given the choice between stubborn reactionary ideologues and a clueless demagogue who has run this country into the ground and hasn't a clue how to help turn this economy around, I think they'll make the wise choice and go with the former.

    Your such a forgetful fella there badmutha....

    Did you conveniently forget, that the GOP raised the debt ceiling seven times under George W. Bush, waged two unfunded wars and sponsored a drug program for seniors that is a total disaster.

    If millionaires cannot be taxed more because they provide jobs, where are those jobs? They are overseas - just try to contact customer service at a major corporation.

    The GOP now believes that fixing the country's financial difficulties is to place the burden on the middle class. Why not have our elected officials, like the middle class, give up some salary, contribute more to their health care plan and pension fund, give up some of their perks and pet projects that are not a necessity. They were not voted into office to become millionaires. As of yet, I have not heard one elected official give back or give up anything. All the GOP does is whine and soil their shorts over the poor downtrodden abused super rich and corporations need more tax cuts...is it any wonder there are lifelong republicans like me saying screw you far right greedy bastards...

    It's not that people blame GOP more than Obama. It's because GOP voters are disgusted with EVERYONE in DC allowing this fiasco to linger, including Republicans. Republicans caving to Obama has voters very critical of their party. However, Obama supports support him no matter what; i.e. economy, unemployment, fraudulent birth certificate, insane spending, endless golf, billion dollar vacations, etc.
