Bill O'Reilly: What the Debt Deal Means to You
FOXNEWS ^ | August 01, 2011 | Bill O'Reilly

Posted on 08/02/2011 9:28:42 AM PDT by Son House

If you want less spending in the future, you will vote for Republicans next time around. If you want to continue with the big government philosophy, you'll vote Democrat.

If the GOP wins the presidency, the Senate and holds the House, then we can expect a radical transformation in Washington. That is, massive spending cuts and hopefully a new tax code, which would raise far more revenue than the class warfare system we have right now. The truth is we need more revenue in America, and the far right should understand that.

A New York Times editorial on Monday says: "Democrats won almost nothing they wanted except avoiding default."

That is a signal to liberals that they should be angry that the government will have to cut spending while not raising taxes. Already the far left is mobilizing to voice displeasure with the deal:

PAUL KRUGMAN, NEW YORK TIMES COLUMNIST: From the perspective of a rational person, in other words a progressive, on this stuff, we shouldn't even be talking about spending cuts at all now. We have 9 percent unemployment. These spending cuts are going to worsen unemployment. That's even going to hurt the long-run fiscal picture because we have a situation where more and more people are becoming permanent long-term unemployed.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

You may remember Professor Krugman supported a massive stimulus package, saying it would bring down unemployment, and it didn't happen. Instead of learning his lesson, he's demanding more stimulus spending. And this guy teaches economics at Princeton University? Unbelievable.

It is important to understand the mindset of President Obama and the political left. Even though the country is in dire economic trouble, largely because of liberal policies, they simply will not acknowledge that.

Mr O'Reilly finally figured out he had to play catch-up to the new media, and next, he may figure out he should apologize to the TEA party and admit they're right on economics, the Constitution, and smaller government...

Bill switch’s siding like a slow freight train,getting out of the way of the express.

What he say’s today has no meaning to what he might say tomorrow.

“The truth is we need more revenue in America, and the far right should understand that.”

All we understand is that giving Congress more “revenue” is like giving your kids more money in a Chuckee Cheeze.

Yes, just like Donald Trump supporting Harry Reid in 2008;

If you want less spending in the future, you will vote for Republicans next time around. If you want to continue with the big government philosophy, you'll vote Democrat.

they couldn't figure that out last time around?

Sounds like you need a little more understanding of the situation Billy O.

BOER is still big on his small federal sales tax to raise revenue.

“...we need more revenue in America, and the far right should understand that....”——Bill O’Reilly

It is obvious he refers to true conservatives as them and not “us”.

Our government already rakes in about 19 percent of GNP via taxes and history proves that it is impossible to substantially take more than 20 percent without shrinking the GNP. O’Reilly does not understand basic economics.

O’Reilly, is a liar, a phony two-faced big mouth arrogant ass. He gets paid very well for being what he is, but this sex pervert has absolutely no credibility with me.

Bill O is an intellectual lightweight. Anything he would write is pedantic and meaningless.

So the revenue they are taking in isn't being mis-managed?? Surely some more catch-up for Mr O'Reilly, not only do they take-in enough revenue, they waste it too.

OK Bill, exactly which Constitutional programs do we have out there that are underfunded???? I can name several Unconstitutional programs that are currently funded: Social Security, Medicare, Educational Loans & Grants, Medicaid, Research Grants, and HUD. Add the Depts of Labor, Education, Agriculture, Interior, etc. The purchase of GM and Chrysler. Bailing out banks.

I wonder just how much our taxes would be if the only things we paid for was what our Constitution has authorized the Federal Government to do?

What we need the government to do in this country is a massive education campaign, telling people to get off their fat behinds and work their butts off to provide for themselves. Because the government needs to collapse and end the welfare state. I’m sick of being shaken down to support lazy bums.

Bill has no credibility. When it comes time to take sides, he jumps in the longest line or takes the “compromise is king” stance. B.O. is mainly B.S.

Agreed.

I’ve never liked BOR. He has always reminded me of my ex-wife’s father (an arrogant, perverted blowhard that lives in an echo chamber surrounded by neophytes and boot-lickers singing his praises).

It’s difficult to believe that there are enough idiots watching this bloviating butt-head every day to justify keeping him on the air.

Put people to work and BAM! more revenue for the government.
Give business some confidence and they'll start investing and hiring and taking risks and BAM! more revenue for the government.
