    Now that the Dems have won reelection by promising candy to their childish supporters, they are turning to the GOP to bail them out of their idiotic campaign promises. Why not let them reap what they have sown? Let them pass their version of fiscal/tax reform and let them take credit for the results. Since we will NEVER pay off the National Debt, what's a few trillion dollars more? Maybe when inflation and interest rates hit 10% the voters will wake up, but not before then. Why not just sit back and watch the show?

    Seems like you have no faith in the free market system. All we need to do is show we're addressing the problem. By instilling confidence in the future and the system will take care of itself, as more people go to work and more revenues come in.

    Yes, good idea. I will personally be very happy when their support of socialism hits them upside the head. Something needs to make them stop and think about our limited resources and how lack of jobs leads to lack of revenue and how lack of revenue will stop their entitlements and checks, or those of their family and friends.

    It is quite amazing how the election went down. There is just no figuring it out, really, other than the takers are a higher percentage of the makers. And liberty to them, means the freedom to take and feed off the taxpayers income without reprisal.

    One of the strangest aspects of Election 2012 is that voters are demanding change but didn't change politicians. They left Republicans in charge of the House, elected an even more Democratic Senate and re-elected President Obama. They're unhappy with the status quo in the country but left the political status quo in place. :cuckoo:

    ADDRESSING THE PROBLEM HOW???
    You can't have businesses that hire people want to hire people if the President HATES profits!
    Why would ANY of us business people WANT to expand if by expanding all we are doing is paying for more free phones... more money to vietnam prostitutes, chinese prostitute training on how to drink socially! Or for all the billions wasted on Solyndra et.al??

    I mean austerity is not the issue.. common sense! And common sense says don't bite the hand that feeds you!

    Who is "we" and how do we "show we're addressing the problem?" The People have spoken, and they want bread and circuses. Why should the GOP assist in maintaining this farce by helping kick the can down the road a few more feet?

    Going to be an interesting four years. People should be very careful what they ask for because sometimes you get it. Who is going to pay the fiddler when this dance is over? You have half the country not paying taxes demanding that the other half pay more taxes. Where is the fairness in that? Do the math. It won't work. Sooner, more so than later, the teat on the cash cow is going to run dry.

    The problem here is that Obama and his merry band of minions don't want a free market system and everyone knows it. The way that confidence would have been instilled, would have been an Obama defeat.
