“We have to really cut back in our spending,” Charlie said. “Everyone knows that, and we have to raise revenue in order to do it.”

See the video with Judge Napolitano

Not much to say, other than in order to quit drinking, I'm going to have to get more booze.
In order to quit smoking, I'll have to buy more cigarettes.
In order to diet, I'll have to buy more food.

Don't you just love liberal logic?

Well I think you already started the "more booze", lol.
I heard nonsense from Charles Rangel on the video and Charles Rangel in the article but no Al Sharpton.
To tell the truth, I'm very happy it wasn't the Al Sharpton has-been fat mouth.
As for Rangel's logic, he has none.


Edit: Don't be a Rangel! Share! Share that happy stuff.

No you bone head you have to start getting rid of outdated programs and start spending wisely just like any other American citizen does when they are having hard times. That is all I have to say.

Has Charlie started paying his share yet?

I recall a little censure fiasco not long ago.

articles and viewing videos from stooges like this,
that I feel like I'm trapped in a Charlie Brown
movie where the teacher keeps saying:

blah, bla, bla, blah
bla, blah, ba, blah

anybody else feel like that ??

Actually, I think political madness is an appropriate forum.

Unless ATS comes up with "crazy-talk"

Political Psy-Ops

I expect to hear more nonsense and for it to escalate the closer we get to the so called double-dip recession (as if the recession ever ended). I swear it's like they are spoiled rotten children demanding those who are responsible and who work... to feed their agenda's. F*** them!

These brats need to live their life as they are expecting us to live but it will never happen.

Get ready for the temper tantrums. I only hope they don't piss on the Capitol like those in Wisconsin did when they were acting like a**'s!

It's time to get the ear plugs and forge ahead

Only a combination of spending cuts and increased revenue will decrease the debt in any noticeable way. Just gutting medicare/medicaid and social security won't help, even if there are defense spending cuts. Taxes for the ultra rich are at record lows, and corporate socialism (like GE paying NO taxes on billions in income) is hurting federal finances. Cut spending, including defense, and raise taxes to where they were in the (highly prosperous) 1990s if you want to fix the debt.

yeah rangle does want to raise taxes hes a democrat and he doesnt pay them.

rangle is a crook he got caught red handed and the crminial is still there.

the majority of dc cronies should be spending life in prison without the possibilty of parole.

the sheer stupidity rasing taxes thus taking more money out of the economy

any idiot knows the more people have the more the spend and that money still ends up at the government.

the world has gone stupid and everyday its proven even more.

Stupidity at its best.

Good find. Thanks Beezer

Welcome!

We've GOT to stop this narritive being played out. THE won't cut spending. THEY will raise the debt ceiling. The only way out of this mess, in their minds, is to raise taxes.

Except for the "bonehead" comment, I think you're on to something with your post.

I'll take it a step further.

IMO all programs should have a "sunset provision" built in to them so that they have to be periodically reviewed and re-passed if they are still necessary.

That is a brilliant idea.
Really.

For once, I actually agree with Charlie Rangel. We DO need to increase revenue (not taxes), and decrease spending!

The following should be assets of the United States, not liabilities, and therefore SHOULD be sources of revenue!

Government Sponsored Enterprises:
Fannie Mae
Freddie Mac
Farmer Mac

Federal Government Chartered and Owned Corporations:
Florida Virtual School (Florida)
National Railroad Passenger Corporation (Amtrak)
Tennessee Valley Authority
Corporation for Public Broadcasting
Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation
Federal Crop Insurance Corporation
Millennium Challenge Corporation
St. Lawrence Seaway Development Corporation
Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation
Corporation for National and Community Service (Americorps)
Overseas Private Investment Corporation
Legal Services Corporation

Federal Government Acquired Corporations:
Citigroup
General Motors (and others)
AIG (American International Group) (and others)
Bank of America
JPMorgan Chase
Wells Fargo
Ally Financial (previously GMAC Financial Services)
Goldman Sachs
Morgan Stanley
Capital One Financial
Regions Financial Corporation
American Express
Bank of New York Mellon Corp.
State Street Corporation
Discover Financial

Other:
US Postal Service
NASA

I feel that if we were to eliminate the salaries of our federal representatives (?), the President included, and paid them commissions based on their performance in cutting spending, and making profits from the above, we might go a long way toward cutting our debt.

I know the above is nothing but a "pipe dream", but as long as those SOBs on "Capitol Hill" keep collecting salaries for NOT performing, NOTHING will change.

We seem to be a nation of idiots, bent on electing our favorite con men to represent, and lead (?), us!

Note to beezer:
Al Sharpton... Charlie Rangel...: Not much difference, so I can understand your mistake. lol

See ya, Milt

If by "love" you mean "makes me want to vomit", then yes, I love it.

I just asked my son, who is 13, "If you had too many toys, would the solution be to buy more toys?"
He looked at me as if I had grown a new leg on my face.
