    imho any deficit reduction would have to be a compromise. Right now I don't think the right issues are being addressed...politicians on both sides are addressing discretionary spending when the real elephant in the room that's adding to the debt/deficit are automatic increases within the entitlement programs. It strikes me that no one is talking about the finding and solutions brought out by the deficit reduction committees a few months ago.

    You are good at posting links but not so good in checking the facts.
    Said the guy who argued that discouraged workers increased by a million a month under Obama despite his own link saying that the monthly numbers were cumulative.

    Said the guy who argued that the Democrats controlled Congress during all of Bush's years.

    Said the guy who argued Texas has a surplus despite its own Republican Comptroller stating the state was in a deficit at the very moment.

    Don't you even dare try to argue other people are not good at fact checking.

    It was passed during a lame duck sesson of Congress before the GOP took power in January 2011(2:48 PM, Dec 7, 2010)
    Which was explained in the post. Wow. Talk about childish behavior there.

    Still waiting for the data supporting your claim that it was trillions in tax cuts?

    Correction. It has been lowered over the past 30 years. Reagan started monkeying around with how unemployment was measured.

    Actually in a way it did. By pushing the bulk of retirement costs to the government, not to mention hundreds of billions if not a trillion in corporate welfare, the private sector did indeed play a role in that debt. And the private sector is one of the biggest beneficiaries of the debt. Sizable portions of the debt are directly caused by tax cuts, cuts that allow people to buy stuff and boost the bottom line.

    Welcome back, Kid, the legend in her own mind is back!

    So when a million people drop out of the unemployment roles because they are discouraged what does that do to the unemployment rate?

    Democrats controlled Congress 2007-2008 when the economy tanked. Controlled the Senate in 2001-2002

    Texas had a surplus when that statement was made, the deficit is PROJECTED for fiscal year 2012-13. Projected deficits will not turn into actual deficits because TX has to balance the budget

    The trillions in debt was claimed as tax cuts for the rich and liberals always ignore economic growth. The article posted is typical liberal BS just like touting 10 projections from the CBO as being accurate.

    Glad to see your typical arrogant attitude hasn't changed a bit. I suggest you stop with the childish comments and liberal arrogance.

    By the way, what makes Klein's article accurate, because you believe it? There is only one ideology that doesn't care how much you make or pay in taxes. If you feel so committed to the govt. then write them a check monthly and designate it as a gift sending it to the IRS. They would love to take your money from you. Doubt that will ever happen as what you and other liberals want to do is spread your misery equally to everyone else.

    It did? You mean people keeping more of what they earn along with businesses is an expense to the govt? Just like a typical liberal, let's attack the people who pay taxes and the businesses that employ people whil never addressing how money is spent. It was the govt. and liberal social engineering that caused the 14.3 trillion debt, not people keeping more of what they earned.

    Again, not a woman. But you must have had a bad experience with females if you call people who treat you badly as females automatically.

    So when a million people drop out of the unemployment roles because they are discouraged what does that do to the unemployment rate?
    Not relevant to my post.

    It is merely an example of you entirely failing to fact check (or even properly read) your own data.

    Texas had a surplus when that statement was made
    No, it didn't. The Comptroller said at the moment Texas was operating at a deficit, and that unless there was a fix for the upcoming biannual fiscal year, the deficit would be $10 billion. So they were in a deficit in the current year, and projections for the upcoming were $10 billion. You did not bother to read what she said. At least 10 other people pointed this out to you.

    the deficit is PROJECTED for fiscal year 2012-13. Projected deficits will not turn into actual deficits because TX has to balance the budget
    That was the $10 billion. You failed to notice she said that the state was in a deficit at the moment. Meaning she was talking about TWO, read them TWO different deficits.

    The trillions in debt was claimed as tax cuts for the rich and liberals always ignore economic growth. The article posted is typical liberal BS just like touting 10 projections from the CBO as being accurate.
    So you don't actually have a rebuttal? Check.

    Glad to see your typical arrogant attitude hasn't changed a bit. I suggest you stop with the childish comments and liberal arrogance.
    You're the liberal remember.

    You know, staying on topic is helpful. But if you did that, you'd lose even faster.

    Nothing you posted addressed a single thing I wrote.
