So the Obama - Geitner move pays off.

Obama calls for 200 % of what they want. Instead of countering with 0% we offer the “middle ground” of 100% of what Obama wants in hopes to settle for 150%.

The Speaker is a light weight.

We gotta spread the wealth around!

Pretty soon there will be no wealth left to spread around. We are already back to 1969 levels.

The concept of a reduction in the growth of spending equals a cut in spending is a poison that could only exist in DC.

The House should just pass a bill they like. The House has the only constitutional authority to write this legislation. They hold the power, and should not give it up. If they want to compromise, they should get something in return for everything they give up.

If the Republican party fails to use the authority they were elected to carry they should and will be replaced by a party that will.

“So you want to get rid of the charitable donation deduction?”

Don’t know. I give from my heart, not because I can write it off.
