Is it just me or does it seem that the Deficit Issue seems to far out of whack to do anything about it at this point, and both Obama & Boehner are just struggling to accept it, these two people are supposed to be the one who figure out these though issues.


It has been too far gone for over a year now to do anything about it... Best they can do is hold their ground and eventually agree on a plan that gives both parties things they want... Ultimately the president demands only two things, higher taxes on the wealthy and that any raise of the debt ceiling be longer term than 2013, so as not to come up again while he tries to win re-election.

Nothing else matters, they will grow the government and spend until it all collapses.

Taxing the wealthy (incomes over $250,000 per year) will be a job and growth KILLER... In a bad economy no worse thing could be done, but it will likely happen.

Spending cuts will be politically targeted, to hurt people who need it the most, so that those evil (insert party here) can be blamed.

It's all politics as usual here... Nothing will be fixed.

See you at the polls in 2012.

as opposed to the entitlement class who sells their votes to that one party who guarantees them a monthly check


Are you really pretending that anyone who doesn't vote for the Republicans (your obviously preferred party, despite all disingenuous claims to the contrary) is on welfare?

I wonder if you grasp the irony, since all of the GOP's (and Dems') corporate doners are the real ones on the REAL welfare.

Funny how you so-called conservative types never mention corporate welfare or military spending as the cause of our debt. Nope, just single moms on food stamps! zOMG!

Like usual no substance, no real plan just more politicing. He is not offering anything but more of the same crud and failed policies that got us into this mess.


Actually Obama is doing just what the Bush neocons want him to do. Failed economic policies and following the PNAC to the letter. Your ire is misplaced and your ideology is getting in the way of your common sense.

What will it take for people to wake up and see that this bumbling idiot in the white house is not looking out for the US.

obama struck the perfect tone, and kicked the GOP in the nuts

the reagan references were EPIC

maybe now the average american will see what is going on, the republicans are playing chicken with the american (and the worlds) economy to get loopholes and tax breaks for the top 2% of the country by using an obscure beaurocratic mechanism that has no bearing on the budget as a deal breaker for pure political reasons

the republicans want to make the country, and by exetension the world, suffer for another 15 months to win an election. they know the the guy who killed osama is unbeatable with a decent, recovering economy

does that make you angry ? it should

cut cap and balance really should be called cut cap balance as a smokescreen to rape the middle class and fork over more money to the rich

why does anyone who makes less than 250k a year vote GOP ? are you stupid ? (insert rhetoric that you fell for here) the GOP should be a defunct party, a bad memory like the Meisterburgers

No, you said rich PEOPLE were leaving to countries where they have to pay no taxes.

Also, companies move to china because it is a totalitarian government and people will work for pennies on the dollar in inhumane conditions. Is that what you think the United states should do to attract jobs?? I don't think you have thought your talking points out very clearly.

Really?

you say screw the rich people, yet don't you see whats happened? the rich guys are leaving the U.S. to nations where they would pay 0 taxes on property and such.


Steve Jobs lives in Califronia, and they have a fairly high (according to you guys) tax rate. Not 0%

Got any other examples?

Barry says Reagan raised the debt limit 18 times. Which is roughly once every 5.33 months. He then goes on to say that a debt limit increase every 6 months wont work. How come it worked for Reagan, and wont work for you, Barry? The whole speech was just Obama campaigning for 2012, right down to the creepy smile at the end.


Right, obama just wants to leave a nice mess for the poor sap that takes over after him. Don't forget, we still have that bomb shell call national health care hanging over our heads along with the debt ceiling.

so lets get this straight everyone else is entitled to what someone else earns except the person who earns it.

just because someone is successful someone else has the right to whats not theirs in the first place.

funny how if someone sticks their hand in your wallet its OH HELL NO YOU DONT.

hypocrites.

So you admit your clam that we are driving all the rich people (like Steve Jobs) to countries with no income tax is totally baseless then?

OR are you just trying to move the goalposts?

It's not like rich people don't like sitting on their asses too...and it's not like they all earned it. Daddy probably earned it - or Grand-Daddy - or Great grand daddy...
And apparently you think everyone that makes under a certain amount = lazy...that's so out of touch that it's not even worth discussing farther. Fool.

i have come to the realization that there is no solution they can give that will benefit americans. none. neither side makes big enough cuts or wants to raise taxes high enough that would allow us to chip away at the mountain of debt we have.

business as usual from both sides, and no chance of change with the current system.
