maybe if we didn't give away so much money in Corporate welfare, we would have enough money to pay for the things that Gov is supposed to do
Corporations are contributing as much to the fed budget as ever. The problem isn't one of revenue.

It's a 4.5% reduction of a raise in spending!

No draconian cuts are happening!

And yet you insist Obama is inflicting maximum pain.

Who is receiving this 'maximum' pain?

BTW TGT, your numbers don't add up, no surprise.

The federal deficit is going down by about 400 billion this year, not up.

I wrote this for my Facebook Page on March 1st;

Starting today, all peaks over 13,500' high, in Sierra National Parks, will be sequestered, transferred, and stored in warehouses in Modesto, Fresno, Lone Pine, and Bishop. Below, a Bell Helicopter flying in to sequester Mt Whitney. Due to limited space in the Owens Valley, Mt Whitney will be stored at the Laws Railroad Museum in Bishop.

Cut just this,

and you pay for all the cuts on the discretionary side and about half of the cuts on the military side.

Hey, I say we lobby hard to get the national debt laws changed so that they parallel the student debt laws.

Student can't repay loans? Not to worry. The banks will just wait, accruing interest for years...and then garnish the former student's Social Security Check (that's of course AFTER ruining said student's credit score and ability to find gainful employment).

Congress can't do the math to figure out how to pay its bills? The American people can demand that any outstanding debt incurred during the Congressional terms in which a member served be subtracted from the pension, Social Security, health care and other benefits accrued by the member.

Congress passed laws enabling public companies to back out of their promised pension and health care benefits. Why can't the American people demand the same of Congress if they're bankrupting the Nation?

No need to comment on the wildly impractical proposals. Just felt good to get a good rant out.

Let's just kick out the GOP and make it a one party country? Getting rid of the house Republicans is what its all about anyway so in 2014 he can finish changing this country into something only he can Recognize. With less rights more goverment control higher taxes for all and the abolishment of Presidential term limits.
Oh sorry that doesn't happen till 2016. Obama for the King!!

After years of involvement I left the political scene 5 years ago. I pray more often now but put my money and energy into actually fixing things on a personal, one on one level.

If I'm wrong please school me, but I think that the reason they take money from the parks is because they know we all love them so we'll kick in personally to keep them open.

Why oh Why do we allow two groups of politicos to determine our lives and our futures?
