clancifer: I wonder how Fox "News" would feel if more tax cuts for the rich were offered?
way south: You can't finish what you never started.
Dr Dreidel: For context - $116.5B surplus in June, thanks largely to repayments of taxpayer loans to Fannie/Freddie ($66B of that).
ImpendingCynic: If only he could reduce the national debt by negative 5 trillion like his predecessor.

Shaggy_C: So, are we still in the "all spending is stimulus" mode, or are we on to "all spending that the government does is justifiable" talking point? Want to make sure I understand what the proper talking points are for this week to justify taking cuts off the table when the goal is deficit reduction. If we've already raised taxes, are we essentially now saying that the deficit is no longer a concern? Or just that we're no longer going to do anything about it, at least as far as the president is concerned?

LasersHurt: verbaltoxin: way south: You can't finish what you never started.And your team plans on doing what about this? Oh, nothing, like usual? Carry on.Apparently they plan to continue denying that any spending cuts have even happened.
Infernalist: When the GOP says 'spending cuts', they mean 'cuts to everything except the bloated Defense budget.'
DarwiOdrade: way south: You can't finish what you never started.But enough about the GOP creating jobs.
Shaggy_C: (favorite: I am "deliberately obtuse")
Saiga410: So Obama is threatening to shut down govt if he does not get spending bills that he dictates?
verbaltoxin: Saiga410: I'm just asking questions!!!FTFY
YoungSwedishBlonde: Thats No Moose: YoungSwedishBlonde: I know what can cure this, defunding Obamacare and Planned Parenthood!And NPR.shiat, how could I forget that. That's like 5 percent of the federal budget right there.
EyeballKid: My suggestion for saving government funds, since that's important (if and only if a Democrat is president).http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2011/02/15/paul-begala-its-tim e- to-defund-kentucky.html
