Giltric: Infernalist:According to a cnn poll 70% of americans want big cuts to spending while only 50% want higher taxes..... 51 is greater than 47 for obama and romney in the election but why is the 70% that want cuts being ignored.

400 billion in cuts are already on the table. You knew that, right?

The Spending Cuts Are Already On The Table. The Only Thing Left To Be Decided Are Tax Rates and Increases.

400 billion over 10 years is not enough...

Giltric: un4gvn666: Giltric: Gwendolyn: zedster: Republicans, you kicked the can down the road hoping you would flip the white house and gain enough votes in the Senate. You failed, the American public rejected your plan. Hell the Ryan plan did more damage to you then it helped. Stop being babies and admit your policies suck. Obama appears to not be folding this time being both a lame duck and having the public on his side.

the only thing that can come from this for the Republicans is a further loss of the senior vote, way to alienate one of your strongest demographics

I can't imagine the republicans gaining much ground with their cut to Medicare and raising the age for social security so they can protect tax cuts for "job creators" who haven't created a farking job in years already.

Obama said 5 million jobs were created in the last 4 years.......he even used those numbers in his campaign.

You dont thonk the poors created those jobs....do you?

Since we're asking rhetorical questions, who the hell do you think purchases all of the things that drive demand, and therefore, create jobs? The rich, who want for nothing? Or the poor and middle classes, who stretch every dollar to live?

I just spent 70k overhauling a king air....and 30k on landscaping before thanksgiving..... Whens the last time a poor person did that....

Keep pretending the wealthy dont spend a dime though.


Wow, you spent 100k, you must think you're rich or something.

hint: you're not.

lol

It's crossing the border from amusing to pathetic that you people are actually upset that the two parties "won't come together and fix the problem."

Neither of them care about fixing anything; only winning.

cman: ghare: cman: He made a good point.

He was spot on in pointing out the bullshiat.

Too bad this will fall on deaf ears more focused on the blame-game over, you know, actually fixing the problem

To fix the problem, the people who are to blame need to, you know, stop being to blame.

But naw, BSABSVR.

When even John Stewart of all people calls his own side on their bullshiat, even you have got to agree that he may have a point. But go ahead, keep preaching BSABSVR.

We need to stop acting like children and act like adults. I am saying this to everyone. fark the blame game, that shiat wont get us anywhere. We need to be more diplomatic and far less aggressive.


Yeah, fark the blame game and those children who are spouting bullshiat. Why can't those shiatty morons realize that we need to be less divisive?

The Jami Turman Fan Club: *Not sure why this would eliminate Pell Grants. It's just insurance for loans that are far harder to get rid of than standard loans. You'd think that wouldn't cost much.


Pell Grants aren't loans or insurance for loans. They're grants. Pell Grants, to be exact.

That was an impressive straw man you built in such a short time.

Please quote the part of my post where I said the rich don't spend a dime though.

What I actually said was: un4gvn666: who the hell do you think purchases all of the things that drive demand, and therefore, create jobs?

The rich may spend money, but they aren't the primary drivers of demand.

certain industries, they do


Keep moving those goalposts. Just a little further. You've almost got it.

If every rich person spent 2x as much as every poor person, the poors would outspend the rich by about 3-5x.

Then the Republicans should suggest some more instead of whining that the Democrats don't do it for them.

Sort of like how the democrats version of presenting a budget is seeing what the republicans come up with and criticizing it without presenting one of their own?


You sure got me. You're right. The Republicans should just keep yelling at the Democrats for not bargaining against themselves. Good point.
