    liblady;1059653484]i agree with a balanced budget amendment. i agree with no tax increases if we don't balance the budget. but you know what will happen if we balance the budget solely with spending cuts? what do you think our "austerity budget" would look like? crime would increase, police departments would decrease staff. education would suffer, infrastructure would suffer, other taxes would be raised, at the state as well aas the federal level. new fees would be developed. i would much rather have an honest increase on the wealthy than a back door increase for everyone.
    This bolded statement is why I can never agree will liberals, the US has a problem, and it needs fixing … but … but … . lets get the rich to do it …. because I don't feel like I share in the responsibility for where we are now .. every single American helped create this problem and every single American should be responsible for helping to get us out of it .

    Republicans are already in the deep serious for their obvious refusal to bring anything to the table.

    Democrat party disbanded. Liberals institutionalized.
    Indeed - eliminating the ability to borrow to cover spending will destroy the Dems.

    The republicans are not united on the matter. McConnel and Boehner are willing to deal. If they can overcome the fanatical idiots, they have an opportunity to take a real chunk out of the deficit.
