I've been wondering what he'd had in mind that Congress was balking at. Now I'm not sure knowing is making me feel a whole lot better. Congress has
no answers or solutions that are the least bit helpful. Either side of them. however, this is hardly a solution either. It's just more digging and
deeper all the time.
Budget: When President Obama put out his "balanced" plan to avoid the automatic sequester cuts, no one noticed. Which is probably just as well
for Obama, given how embarrassingly unbalanced it is.
The article details, point by point, what the proposals are for what they do as individual things but the bottom line comes out about the same. The
cuts aren't really cuts and taxes are the rule of the day. More, higher and across the board. Either directly to us and by Government or in 'hand me
downs' from those who ARE being taxed higher.
Viewed correctly, it turns out that more than $300 billion — about a third — of Obama's proposed "spending cuts" are actually revenue
As a result, instead of $1.2 trillion in spending cuts called for by the sequester over the next decade, Obama would add more than $1 trillion in
revenues, while cutting outlays only about $600 billion. And much of those aren't real cuts, but tiny reductions in projected spending growth over
the next decade.
And in the end, his plan, such as it is, will do nothing to forestall the nation's oncoming debt
I'd love to say we need a change in leadership. We really DO need that. The problem is, a change to what?? Boehner's outlook? Aside from just being
a brick wall to ANYTHING being done while doing nothing positive to bring action himself, what precisely would his way be anyway? No leadership seems
to exist anywhere in sight here. They're all following and reacting to each other.
Heck of a way to run a Government, isn't it?
