There would be NO talk of debt limits, shutdowns and CRs if Obama did just one thing.
Submit a balanced budget!
First you would have to get the lying shiftless bastard boy to submit A budget! You can be sure he knows nothing of a ‘balanced budget’. he’s a dyed in the wool democrip from Chicago crime syndicate.
Republicans don’t want a balanced budget. Only conservatives do.
YES, and to have Harry Reid making comments like âWhat right do they have determining what parts of the Government get funded or notâ is about as asinine as I have ever heard. Last I checked all 12 or 13 appropriations bills start in the GOP led House. Seems to me the GOP Led House is the ones to start the process of determining which parts of Government get funded or not. Harry is just doing the dirty work of his KING who honestly believes he is an imperial dick-tator.
But it is up to Congress to pass a budget
Keep it shut down. Now is the time for the House to use its’ Constitutional Power of the Purse against this out-of-control socialist adminstration. Turn off their money spigot. Cloward Piven the left. No more borrowing money...no more leftist programs that turn Americans into slaves of the state.
Reid did say “What right do they have deciding which parts of government to fund.”
Read the Constitution Harry. It’s called the power of the purse.
I fear the GOP-e, (the leadership as they call it), will turncoat on the conservatives. They along with the Dems and media will blame all this on the few that are standing to save our country.
So who is out of touch?
Obastard’s budget isn’t within a mile of being balanced. It’s worthless.
Remember how Bill Clinton grew the economy out of it, then Bush ran the debt up by cutting taxes and having wars.
We are up to our eyeballs in the Bush/GOP debt.
The government now admits they collect information on every phone call you make. They have your tax records, and they use them for political ends. They’ve lied about this, admit they’ve lied, and the perpetrators get promotions. They refuse to even investigate.
Now, they want to upload your medical records. All of your medical records. They want your doctor to ask about your love life. Of course they will use this information for their own purposes - they’ve done it before and punished no one.
“There would be NO talk of debt limits, shutdowns and CRs if Obama did just one thing.
Submit a balanced budget!”
Not sure why you believe that. Obama could submit a budget that doubles entitlement spending and assumes taxes are increased three-fold. Just submitting a budget or even a balanced budget by itself means nothing.
We could cut our way to a balanced budget in a couple of hours. All we need is small government people in control of the House, Senate and Presidency who are more concerned for the country than their reelection.
They don’t call the GOP the stupid party for nothing!
Your right, he could. He hasn’t, which is why we are at another “debt crisis”.
Another poster found this:
Senate rejects Obama budget in 99-0 vote
The Senate has NOT passed a budget since 2008. Not in 2009. Not in 2010, Not in 2011. Not in 2012. And not in 2013.
And we wonder why Washington lurches from crisis to crisis.
What happened in the 2012 election?
Remember Bush in 2008 when he had the deer in the headlight s look trying to get Congress to appropriate the TARP money?
It would be easy to get budget balanced, raise taxes.
-——What happened in the 2012 election?-——
The Presdient stole the election using the IRS and a host of others
By rights he should be shot for crimes against the republic
Bush is not and never was a supporter of small government. Nobody in the whole clan supports small government.
Elect someone like Lew Rockwell or Murray Rothbard and see what happens, instead of posers like Rubio, Ryan or any sort of Bush.
Lew Rockwell? Is that the same guy that freepers used to call Lewser Rockwell?
Maybe it is. Freepers are quite diverse in their opinions. I don’t agree with Lew on several issues, but he would take a chainsaw to the Federal budget and power, reducing it to its Constitutional duties.
Lots of folk fault him for supporting open borders, but once he finished with the federal entitlement programs there would be a LOT fewer crossing in and MANY more going home.
You must not have read my post. A balanced budget means nothing if it is attained through higher taxes. We are not in a debt crisis because Obama has failed to push his so-called balanced budget with higher taxes.
we are in this mess because Obama and the dems and RINOs have pushed more entitlements on us. Whether Obama submits or does not submit some phony budget means nothing. The less Obama does the better.
