CONGRATULATIONS REPUBLICANS ON YOUR STUNNING VICTORY IN GETTING THE DEFICIT DOWN TO $1.6TRILLION FROM $1.6O3TRILLION
NOW THATS GOOD GOVERNMENT!!
YOU REALLY PROVED THE SIZE OF YOUR MANHOOD BOEHNER (0.003)
Thanks John BoNeR!!!
Who would have known that a BoNeR can also be a BOOB!!!
Pop open the cider! At this rate, they’ll eliminate the deficits by 2867 budget.
This is what happens when you put a cryer in charge.
I can’t decide whether to pat him on the back or kick him in the butt.
He got goodies for political fights that may garner him votes in the future from Democrats but there aren’t that many that are persuadable with facts.
All I can say is, we need a big big big cut for 2012, I like what I am hearing in the GOP Budget Proposals.
Score on Budget Proposals:
DEMS = 0 GOP = >5
Nothing will be fixed until it all comes crashing down. The Big Crash is inevitable. The math is inexorable. The politicians will do nothing to stop it — they are too busy rearranging the deck chairs.
To celebrate this tremendous victory, I think I will go out and buy her a fancy new video game.
And, in honor of this stunning success, I will break into her piggy bank and buy the video game with her own money and put my wife's and my name on the card to show her what great people we are.
But, wait, she's only 3 years old. She probably hasn't had enough time to save enough money for us to buy her a video game with.
Aha! No problem. I'll just put an I.O.U into her piggy bank for 300 dollars.
Problem solved! Thank you John Boehner for showing us the way.
Oops. Gotta go. The bus to the casino is out front.
These people who are responsible for this economy should be given a quick trial and hung from the tallest trees in DC!
That’s why i hope Trump proves Obummer is a fraud. I want to see him in JAIL for this and watch Nazi Pelosi drageed off too, screaching and screaching in her straight jacket
Who the hell voter for this boner?
Ooops—Musta been them Reupubican RINO critters.
They were not the ones we THOUGHT we voted for.
This morning I admitted to her she was right and she could say "I Told You So".
She said she knew there would be no change because even though people say we have to change, nobody, absolutely nobody, wants change. We are afraid of change, we hate change, we do not want change. The only reason politicians get elected promising change is because everybody says we want change even though that is the biggest lie in the world.
I am sorry for doubting her, she is much wiser than me.
But really what can we expect. The Republican only control the house. For us to do any major budget cuts we have to control all three Branches of Congress and last time I checked we did not.
So everyone says shut it down. Really how far you think that will work. Eventually they will have to reopen the Govt. Then what the “Tea Party” cannot force the Senate to pass or the Prez to sign.
Lets be thankful it is a least a step in the right direction and work on getting a majority in the Senate and Prez in 2012.
This is what happens when you put a POLITICIAN in charge.
There I fixed it.
It was just a CR. No one really expected real cuts from the CR. If you did, please take this moment to educate yourself on the budget process before throwing stones. It would be like asking your spouse to cut your total household budget by 20% using the cost of one meal. It won’t work, even if the one meal is Thanksgiving.
The 2012 budget is up next. That’s the real show.
Now, please find the shift key and turn you cap locks off.
Obviously you are a disgruntled Libertarian with no knowledge of government budgets.
So why can't they pass a budget stating explicitly to fund the prisons, the military, and such items? Then shut the rest of the mess down, completely.
My apologies to CommieCutter.
Mr. K, please locate the shift key and turn off your cap locks.
Some people have a fixation ...
Boehner, is that U?
People venting because they want spending cuts now. Hell some people thought you should have even delayed working on last year’s budget till next year’s budget was in place so that you could get the spending cuts we need to save the country in place.
Can’t you understand that?
BECAUSE. The Democratic Senators would see the ruse and NOT sign. Then What back to shut down.
All three branches have to sign or nothing gets passed.
Check your math, $1.603 trillion minus $38 billion equal $1.565 trillion. Not great but an order of magnitude better than you statement.
Just a little perspective.
Thanks for putting it in perspective. A lot of people not only don’t know, but don’t want to know how bad it is. Pretending we’re okay and can sustain anything resembling current spending, borrowing, printing and other fiscally disastrous policies is for Dems. Conservatives should acknowledge the crisis can’t responsibly be kicked down the alley any further; the time to fix it should be now.
Actually, they are still going in the other direction, the deficit is still growing, they just slowed that rate by a fraction of a fraction.
[Nothing will be fixed until it all comes crashing down. The Big Crash is inevitable. The math is inexorable. The politicians will do nothing to stop it they are too busy rearranging the deck chairs.]
Best to prepare for the crash and have a plan to “isolate” all these representatives and the puppet masters from what’s left of society so they cannot have ANY influence on further decisions.
Yeah, and people want medicare now, medicade now, retirement now . . . wake up.
Go to youtube. Search for “Brooks, Marcus on ‘Absurdity’ of Shutdown Debates, Paul Ryan’s Budget Plan.”
Go to 12:10 and listen to the liberal squeal like the pig she is. They *want* to fight over the CR, not the budget. The dems are *screwed* if we move on and they *know* it. Go find the video. Pay attention. Listen.
Thank you Boehner, Ryan, and cantor!!!!!!You are true Patriots!!!!! I am so proud that we are going to be 5% better this year and next than the biggest spending democrats in American history!!!!Than you for Medicare D, thank you for standing for the unborn, thank you for being as wise and strong as the founders!
uuuuuhhhhh sir, Ryan wants to spend 3.59 trillion next year....there are no cuts.This is all a game.
boy you are a hack...2012 Ryan budget spends 3.58 trillion...
Sorry, I said there were 5 and never mentioned Paul Ryan, ahahhahaha ddeduududua
Why do people always reply on a post to something that isn’t even in the post?
Very good, thanks for the tip, she was pretty freaked out when it was pointed out that the Dems had to come up with a plan that balanced expenditures to revenue.
Then she had to admit, she is still waiting....lol
Sorry, but that wasn't a step, that was just shifting the weight off of our left foot a little ...
Point well taken, but how do you propose the GOP carry out massive cuts when they have neither the senate or the white house? Boehner played a bad hand very well.
Paul Ryan has a plan to cut trillions, and that is where we should be focusing. This was a chump change sideshow. I’m glad it’s over. It only distracted from Ryan’s much more important plan
It was sarcasm and no, I’m a full Conservative.
That's the real point right there, which retards like all caps boy seem to be missing.
Face people - even these piddling cuts are unlikely to survive a Dim-controlled Senate, the inter-house reconciliation process, and the President's veto pen. To see anything substantive happen will require GOP control of the House, Senate, and Presidency.
Something that isn't made any easier by a bunch of stupid yahoos running around internet forums vomiting up idiotic nonsense while having their caps lock keys permanently on.
What's really key here is that the GOP, for the first time in a long, long time, forced the Left to even accept the premise that the budget could be cut outright, rather than just having the rate of spending growth slowed (which the Left erroneously calls "cuts" even though it's not). Once that point has been yielded, the battle's half over, we just have to wait for the American people to do the right thing in 2012 to give us the troops needed to get the job done in both houses, and to a GOP President.
The politician part goes without saying.
The MSM and democrats work together to put out effective sound bites on the hourly news. Unfortunately, the Republicans have trouble getting out effective sound bites. The only ones who are good at it are conservative columnists, like Henninger and O'Grady of the WSJ, or some of the guys over at the Hoover Institute.
Sounds like your wife is a smart woman.
Tell her that change is coming. It won’t be anyone’s choice. It will be the inevitable, unavoidable, ultimate conclusion to great foolishness.
We are on an unsustainable fiscal course and it will meet its inevitable end.

How silly of you guys to bring any rationality to the discussion. But it won’t do any good; the hyperventilators seem to rule these threads. Sad, as they are as irrational as the far left Dems are. You can’t win w/out compromise when you only have one half of one House of Congress, and no Presidency. But the dunderhead hotheads can’t seem to understand the obvious.
Waste your breath with your logic, just realize that you are indeed wasting your breath. However, I admire your fortitude in speaking truth in spite of the onslaught of illogical reaction on most of these budget deal threads. Kudu’s.
I can’t - this adminsitration is wearing out my capslock key
What a bunch of whiners on this thread!! Saw another one like this a coupla days ago, where all the defeatists ganged up to cry in each other’s beer. Sounded like a losers’ convention to me, just like this one does! SHEEESH
