In other words, no spending cuts will ever happen. EVER.
When you’re $14.6 Trillion in the hole, $1.2 Trillion over 10 years isn’t gonna get you out of the hole...................
New deal same as old deals, more debts today for nothing tomorrow.
What are the numbers for FY 2012?
If Congress wants to balance the budget, they have all the power to do so today. STOP SPENDING THE MONEY.
Simply words on a piece of paper -- they can't constrain a future Congress like that.
No, what we need are real cuts, today. Period. project future savings all you like, but be honest about what's really being cut and what is beyond this Congress' control.
What the hell are they doing? We are 1.6 trillion in the hole just this year. Save a whole 100 billion next year?
Have the dumb gotten dumber?
Are we surrendering? TELL THEM NO MORE SPENDING!
Skru this namby pamby nonsense.
House: here is the plan. pass it or default is yours.
and stop already....
What a stupid plan. What is with these 10 year gimmicks? They could probably balance it in 5 by going back to 2008 levels and freezing it for 5 years.
How about no
A dollar down and a dollar a month,Great plan!\s
NO RAISING THE DEBT CEILING..PERIOD..what is so hard for these turd brains to understand. We are already bankrupt. Geez I am not even that good at math and I see that raising the debt ceiling is a HORRIBLE HORRIBLE idea
That might be somewhat good news if the $1T increase would last for an entire decade.
$1 trillion over the next decade will be far exceeded by the dim-bulb-crat graft and corruption increases during that same period.
Like that amount during next year.
$1.2 trillion over a decade is NOTHING and we know they won’t cut a dime.
What would be the point of a Balanced Budget Amendment if even the guy proposing it offers to cut such a piddling amount??
A ten year point 2 billion 'savings' that kinetically will tank us in 2-4 years ?
Bullshit ... NO debt criling increase, period.
What part of, "We're broke because of the devil you're negotiating with" don't you get?
Wow...this thread’s got the DU spirit.
Sounds similar to CC&B to me, I don’t get the bellyaching here.
Let’s make it easy for them.
Go here and open Rand Pauls 5 Year Budget plan: http://www.campaignforliberty.com/blog.php?view=41227
It’s fully of specific quantified cuts in federal programs across the board. Pick some, and don’t stop until they total at least $3 trillion.
Then get on the boob tube and announced that you have a plan to CUT SPENDING BY $3T and here it is. Name names.
When the SHTF, say OK, you have a better plan, let’s hear it - but remember the total has to come to $3T. Stand back and watch the fun.
Does this sound like a Daddy telling the little darlings at home they have to do without either the movie channels, the NetFlix, the video games, the vacation, the new phone, etc? Well that’s how you deal with people who have the maturity level of children.
Fun’s over kids. Time to pay the bills.
the markets are expecting about $4 tril. in cuts and a lot sooner than ten years. Otherwise our rating is gonna get lowered anyhow.
