    All spending. Denocrats passed pay go and it stopped nothing. If you say wasteful they will justify all spending and none will be wasteful

Unless you have enough revenue to pay your bills you are always going to have debt.

    Reagan and Bush both increased spending and reduced revenues. Obama has proposed reducing the percentage of spending back to the days of Eisenhower, and increasing revenue by eliminating the tax cuts for the wealthy. That makes more sense to me if the goal is to reduce our National debt.
    So because Bush did it, it is okay Obama does it?

    Clearly, we need to keep cutting taxes for the rich.

    I mean, if we taxed them more... they might not be able to afford as many houses. And that is not acceptable.

    True. Economically speaking, we are out of the recession. Great point!

    Of the ANTI-MILITARY want us to cut their spending first! Naturally sacred entitlement cows can't be touched. That's the liberal way, doing what's clearly unconsitutional.

    Building houses creates work does it? And creating work creates jobs does it?
