Now we have the sequestration battle that will probably involve some nefarious bookkeeping without reducing spending. Hell, if we can't cut $100 billion a year out of a $3.7 trillion dollar annual budget for the next ten years, how the Hell are we ever going to cut spending?
We aren't. Game Over. The country has changed. It is no longer a christian Republic, it is a godless Democracy, with factions vying for a piece of the pie. I say if you can't beat' em. Join 'em. Raise taxes, raise corporate taxes, open the borders, just let Obama have everything he wants. Don't fight a single bill. They won't know what the hell to do if we stop opposing them. Then when it all turns south, which it will eventually anyway, they will be in the pilot's seat.
