    I'm not a republican hay and while they accept your retarded games, I will not.
    Its a good thing that you ARE NOT an elected representative of the people wince you place such a strange priority on both your time and the money of the people.

    Of course you are not a Republican. You are far to the right of even that right wing party.

    You should refrain from a word like RETARDED. It is insulting on many levels and a personal attack.

    You forget that I'm not wasting their money or time. You are doing both here. I am simply telling everyone to stay at home to avoid such issues when bull**** offers are made for action.

    Of course you are not a Republican. You are far to the right of then that right wing party.
    They play your games that allows you to run the show. I'm simply saying I will not play your game and forcing you to play MY game.

    I don't care if its insulting and I was clearly using it in relation to your games.

    Then we differ that saving $300 BILLION DOLLARS is significant. I happen to think it is. I suspect that the American people would also think $300 BILLION DOLLARS is significant also. We know that the right wing mouth foamers think a few million is significant when it is one of their convenient partisan targets like NPR funding.

    What exactly is "your game" that you want to force people to play? As with many of these cryptic statements you tend to make, I have no idea what you are talking about. And I suspect you cannot explain it either or you would have already done so.

    $300 billion dollar is significant, especially overnight. Actually, it is approximately what I would cut from governmental spending, and much more than what Republicans and Democrats want. However, I would use more time to not cause a another recession like in Europe. (Austerity is not the only reason Europe is in recession right now)

    What I will do
    1. Reverse Bush tax cuts for all income levels, that will give $300-$400 billion dollar extra revenue. The gap is way too large, to be solved by spending cuts alone.
    2. Cut 400 billion dollar over four years. 200 should be done on mandatory spending and 200 on military spending. 200 on social security/Medicaid/Medicare. I will leave the discretionary budget mostly alone.
    3. Reform entitlements so that the growth in spending is reduced.
    4. Reform the tax system, remove deductions but also lower some taxes. Without deductions, then US need to reduce its corporate tax.

    Actually the majority of Americans are tax evaders while 'the rich' have to carry them. You didn't know this?

    Such as re coal trade on the Ohio River in the 18th century? You stumble over the little things that would have become part of the nature of an actual wealthy person or person trained in the law. You are neither one of those things...not by a long shot.

    What we make far too easy is for under-educated misanthropes to bespoil the internet with their imaginary tripe. I see it every day...

    You realize I suppose that this was an admission of not knowing anything at all about the genesis of the credit crisis and consequent Great Bush Recession.

    so people like me who have earned income of several hundred thousand dollars are going to get massive increases in our benefits?
