Conservatives would like all hard working, honest
people to succed. Liberals woud like government
to succeed in running the lives of everyone.
You should listen to Rush Limbaugh, and Sean
Hannity. It would all bcome more clear to you.

The main difference between "conservatives" and "liberals" is:
"Conservatives" only want *THEMSELVES* to succeed, and will manipulate the
system to ensure that happens. "Liberals" want *NOBODY* to succeed, and will
manipulate the system to ensure that happens.
Is that why conservatives are so dead set on telling women what they can or
can't do with their bodies? They allegedly want small government, but they
want to set it up inside a woman's uterus. You've got it all backwards
again, Stormin Morlim, it's the conservatives who want to tell people how to
run their lives. Too much Rush and Sean have rotted your brain.
<<LDS helped the Islamic Society of Orange County's Al-Rahman Mosque in
Garden Grove develop its library with a $15,000 donation. "Their beliefs are
similar to ours," Robert Bremmer, a Mormon bishop, said at that facility's
open-mosque day in 2005. "They have modest dress, and so do we. They believe
in all the [Old Testament] prophets, as do we.">>
LOL. Typical. I'll bet most Fox viewers know that
the national debt is $16tril and $6tril of that has been
added since Obama came to office. And I'll bet they
have some idea that the deficit for the year that just
ended was $1.1tril. And that Obama's only plan to
do anything about it so far is to raise taxes on those
"rich" people making $200K+, which would raise just
$80bil. $1.1tril vs $80bil, that's some new math.
Now ask a lib about any of the above facts and
virtually everyone I've seen is clueless. They would
not know that the deficit in 2012 was $1.1tril. The
only "fact" they know is that it's George Bush's fault
and the solution is to raise taxes, even though
the deficit problem is more than an order of magnitude
Zing! It's the same clause that makes him responsible for the price of a
gallon of gasoline.
I am always *negatively* impressed by the binary thinking concerning
restoring tax rates. "If it doesn't completely solve the problem, it's no
It took ten years of deep tax cuts and ever-increasing corporate tax
avoidance and ten years of expensive wars to get us into the hole. The
sooner we get that tax revenue stream back on line, the sooner the deficit
We fought two wars for longer than WWII and somehow expected there wouldn't
be sacrifices. Unlike WWII, we fought the AfRaq wars on credit, and now
we're going to have to pay for our mostly failed attempts at "nation
building." We didn't escape the sacrifices that long wars require, we
merely postponed them. Time to pay the piper.
If these were are only problems, I would happy. But we haven't even
begun to address the unfunded liablity of SS, MCare, MCaid. That's
another $121.6 trillion. Combine the federal budget deficit with the
unfunded liabilities for current entitlement programs (excluding
Affordable Care Act because those liabilities are still obscured) and it
comes to a mindboggling $1.2 million per taxpayer.
America is at that awkward stage. It's too late
to work within the system, but too early to shoot
He does. But he must sign bills or veto them in whole. He doesn't have line
item authority. True, he could veto appropriation bills and shut down the
government like Clinton did, but he can only sign or veto what Congress gives
And he *must* spend the money as ordered by Congress. No more, no less. So I
would be inclined to lay responsibility at Congress's doorstep, not the
There is no formally passed budget, but the president can't spend a dime that is
not authorized by Congress. See Article 1, Section9. So there have been an
endless series of continuing appropriations that simply keep doing business as
usual. Take a look at Article 1, Section 8 to see who has the power to borrow
It is hard to lay blame solely on Mr. Reed, unless you believe he has some duty
to simply accept the Republican's approach to things. As you pointed out in
another post, the Constitution does not work that way.

Nevertheless, he signed them, he owns the results. Not to mention
that he does have significant power in seeing to it that legislation
reaches him that is to his liking. Pretending that he's the victim is
a stupid leftist's ploy.
Certainly, though Obama isn't above ignoring Congress.
Wrong. The previous budget, with its base-line increases is in
effect. He spends every dime of it.
On what? The wars were not started by Obama and the one in Iraq was
clearly unnecessary. TARP, for better or worse (and was probably
necessary) was signed by Bush. Auto bailout was Obama but has been or is
being repaid. Tax cuts for the wealthy was Bush and the GOP forced Obama
to continue them lest they shut the government down. So what part of the 6
tril was a choice made by Obama?
