It's like a child pointing at some else's bad behavior to justify their own. The truth is the economy would have recovered faster and stronger with cogent fiscal policy rather than ideological pandering which actually stalled and crippled recovery. What is the Democrat plan that .that makes meaningful reductions to the unsustainable fiscal path we are now on. No blame just adult real world solutions!
No budget for 4 years reflects the totally irresponsible state of the Democratic party those president was reelected by the explosion of derelicts in America. It is no longer the "dumbing down of America" America as been "dumbed down" which probably foretells the beginning of the end
Thats one of the dumbest things I've ever heard plus false a lot of right wingers think Clinton was president on 9/11 just like right wingers think Obama was president during the 08 DOW crash and housing bubble pop !
Lets for a second forget about Dems and Repubs. Start fresh as of today now and then can s0me one tell me what is the plan by current Govt to reduce 16T Debt which is already at 20T (after passing the fiscal cliff). As we are enjoying the lowest T-Bills rate which is less then 2% on 10 Year what happens as Feds are now scared and they start winding QEs and rates start moving up Interest alone will keep piling up in Trillions let alone any other programs.
I did not Vote for him I am independent but even taxing 100% to rich will not make a dent in the interest payment. So All the handouts that he is giving out will become less and more expensive and thus poor becomes even more poor this is simple logic that Dems can not even get in their Head. You do not spend money that you do not have. Forget about now is not the time and blah blah blah. Every sensible home owner when look at their own personal books they start cutting from the day they realize it is going out of hand. So this is what we need to do TAX increse should only be paid for debt decrease and all welfare needs to go including unemployment as a start. We just do not have the money it can not get any simpler then that. Put everyone to work no lazy #$%$ sitting at home no work then start cleaning streets and communities if u want govt free money work or those good old days are gone.
If you do not understand now the day you understand will be too late and nothing left
Cut defense to 0 this year including entitlements (freebies) given to other countries, don't pay congress this year, cut social services to 0, use all tax revenues to pay down trillions this year, across the board increase in taxes by 100% for this year, double everyone's tax. Fire all TSA crooks, Increase IRS enforcement funding for this year. Next year, we'll deal with it next year. Need a dictator for this year.
You won't get an answer to this after reading it the Dems will have that "deer in the headlights look" it will take about an hour for them to regain contact with their own simple reality after the brainlock.
Please enlighten us as to "..The truth is the economy would have recovered faster and stronger with cogent fiscal policy rather than ideological pandering which actually stalled and crippled recovery." Does "cogent fiscal policy" mean deep cuts in government at the same time the economy is already in a death spiral and the unemployment rate is fast approaching 10%?
This would have helped recovery, somehow? You believe in voodoo or something?
Support rather than demonization for the private sector over unions and government workers, neither of which actually produce anything might have been a good start. Moderate Cuts to increases in spending which is what Washington calls a cuts would not have hurt. Minor regulatory changes to heath care rather than a government takeover of the whole system would have been the smart move. Requiring pre -existing conditions coverage, etc.
If you take away their number one retort "It was all Bush's fault!" They default to "Tax the rich!" But if you tax the rich 100% of their earnings it doesn't even make a dent in the shortfall problem the USA has
