The House proposals will address BOTH problems.
1. It will open the government and fund it.
2. It will include reductions in the causes of our country's massive deficits.
Mr. Obama's demands only address the first of these 2 problems...
... but they do NOTHING to address the 2nd problem.
If the GOP-controlled house loses this battle, then we americans lose this best chance to address problem #2.
THAT.... is what this is about.
I would tend to agree with this fine gentleman.
Every day, you, me, and every person on this board balances our checkbooks and pays for the things that we buy.
It's baffling to me that so many americans are willing to give Mr. Obama a pass on avoiding that same, responsible approach to our nation's budget.
While it's true that EVERY president oversaw budget deficits, there is no president in MY lifetime who has ever been more opposed to addressing them as Mr. Obama is...
... he even want's to suspend the "sequester", which is the ONLY attempt that has been made to address the deficit during his entire presidency!
