additionally, I would think this prez, will just issue a tax cut to the middle class, by Presidential decree, for each year he remains office.

rules and law don’t mean a damn thing to these people. when is the last time the Senate produced a budget, which by law is what they are supposed to do ?

we are going to see him usurp power, in increasing amounts.. he’ll completely bypass congress and just issue orders. watch....

the press will go along with it, because after all, like Lincoln in the Speilberg movie, it’s for the common good.. the ends justify the means, when a king has good motives.

One option may be to schedule more frequent votes on raising the debt limit, say every 3 to 6 months.

If the magic, agreed to spending cuts have not occured in each period, then no debt limit increase.

It’s about the only leverage the GOP house has...

And (a) This also extends throughout the Muslim sphere (b) Barry was exposed to the Muslim sphere in his adopted years therefore he knows it.

Photobucket Old Adlai used the 'hole in shoe' liberal gambit and gained a statue in a airport. ROTFLMAO.

I believe Obama will honor his word to make serious and thoughtful cuts the second Tuesday of next week.

See my earlier post. Taxes go into the US Code and “spending cuts” into the ephemeral annual budget, no mechanism to make them happen in a later budget.

I think that your documentation project is worthy, looking at the budget bill for a given year might work if you also slogged through the Congressional Record of debates on the budget. will find you the bills and a link to CongRec. To the US Code as well, I think.

bows to foreign dictators, and let four
American diplomats die in Libya because he
was afraid of getting a bad headline –
you're going to listen his fiscal cliff plan?
Don't make me laugh!”

A good summary, but there is a lot left out...I won’t bother to write it, since you already know it.
