$15 billion in spending cuts.
Anyone who votes for this should be fired. Effective immediately.
It already passed.
It’s all ridiculous, republicans are always afraid of being “blamed” for something, yet they have no ability to blame the democrats for anything.
I never see any discussion of what’s best for the country.
“Anyone who votes for this should be fired. Effective immediately”
start with the 85 Republicans who voted aye
Why bother with the $15 billion in cuts. Good grief, what a cruel joke this is.
I am going to be an independent conservative as of tomorrow. If anyone from the Republican party should have the balls to call me for money or another form of support, I am going to let them have it so bad they are not going to forget my name anytime soon.
Any liberal who has the balls to tell me things aren’t working out like he or she thought they would under Hussein is going to meet the same fate. I TOLD YOU SO is my new mantra. Eff ‘em all.
Not enough spending is a “crisis”, but never the paralyzing debt.
The media, the Marxists, and the GOPe can got to Hell.
Useless gelded pubbies...notice the lefties NEVER old, ever. WTH is wrong with us.
That's assuming that our best wealth creators won't change their behavior when faced with higher rates of taxation. But if they do change their behavior which should be expected, then those changes will probably offset any revenue increases. Not that the Democrats care. Obama is already on record saying that the purpose of an increase in the capital gains tax rates has nothing at all to do with raising revenue, and everything to do with something called 'fairness'.
The bottom line here is that the CBO has already marked this bill as a debt raiser. The $620 billion tax increase is more than offset by new pork spending that was crammed into the bill. Republicans are idiots.
Anyone still think principle doesn’t matter?
So much for even the ‘balanced’ approach the ‘Rats were talking about - this virtually all taxation and no cuts. The Republicans had better make 0bama and the Democrats own this.
Why hasn’t anyone mentioned the fact that considering the high taxes the so called rich are already paying, raising the taxes will cause revenue to GO DOWN???!!!???
what a freaking joke.
