With major budget votes set for Tuesday, Senate Democrats spent the weekend dismissing House Republicans' plans to cut the budget as ideological, extremist, reckless." President Obama advocated a government that lives within its means, but he also charged theres nothing responsible about the Republican budget cuts.
Following the same script, news headlines described the House Republicans cuts as "dramatic" and "outrageous."
The magnitude of this years deficit might be hard for many to appreciate. But the monthly budget deficit for February of $223 billion is larger than the $160.7 billion deficit for all of 2007, the last time we had a federal budget that was approved when Republicans controlled the House, Senate, and presidency.
Democrats say that they can only come up with one-thirteenth the deficit cuts that the Republicans have put forward just $4.7 billion, though Obama claims that these cuts meet the Republicans halfway. Democrats assert that there is not even enough waste in the federal budget to cut it by two-tenths of one percentage point. . . .

Shut er down....
Shut er down....
The math is irrefutable - the country is in deep trouble and will economically collapse - and still they're carrying the democrat's water.
Whats in it for them?
We The People must send testosterone pills to the Republican members of the House and to Boehner in particular.
The true deficit for Feb 2011 is most likely much worse than is being reported.
Nothing. They are just a bunch of morons.
Watching 0bama talk about balancing the budget is like watching a movie of Hitler in the final days in the bunker, giving orders to phantom armies that exist only as pins on his map....
Obama is like a boater out in the lake. the boat is sinking and he decides that using a teaspoon to empty out the boat will prevent it from sinking. eventually the boat will sink.
There needs to be more than a teaspoon used to bailout the water.
Unfortunately the Republicans are not much better, they have decided to use a kids pail to bail out a sinking ship.
There needs to be more than a kids pail used to bailout the water.
There need to be several 5 Gallon pails coming from many directions to bailout the ship.
in doing dealing with the budget the 5 gallon pails are cuts in benefits, salaries, staff, elimination of many duplicious governmental agencies, the president being limited to a realistic budget and some real belt tightening.
But DC will continue to utilize the teaspoon approach, as DC is out of touch with reality. Maybe the kids pail might be sought after but the teaspoon will take precedence.
The Truth About Obama, Democrats and Budget Cuts.
They are still under orders not to cut spending.
. . .it on the republicans.
