The problem has always been too much spending on out of control entitlement programs. Heck, thats been the issuse for 30 years now. Sure, maybe 10% of the fiscal issue can be resolved by ‘tax increases’ but, that’s it and I even that I’m not sure about. It is frustrating to think that Obama convinced the nation that taxing the rich will make it all go away but, the fact is he’s done it.

The entire ride that we’re on right now was built by the Democrats and somehow if we can’t figure a way off this stupid ride, it’s the GOP’s fault.

Bottom Line: Obama got us here whether the public knows it or not and we’ll just have to watch him do what he’s going to do while we maintain our principles....even if we also get the blame.

Obama and Obama alone is to blame. His $825 billion ‘stimulus’ got baked into the ‘budget’. That pushed the deficit over $ 1 trillion and there it has stayed for four years. As an added bonus, there has been no discernible benefit to the economy from these four years of trillion dollar deficits, just as most conservatives predicted. Obama policies led us to the cliff. The GOP is doing what it can, but, Americans reelected a moron. So be it.
