    This is news? What kind of budgeting is it where the deficit is greater than the income?

    It's the government equivalent of "how can I be broke, I still have blank checks" school of financial management. In the government's case, it's "how can we be broke, we can still print money and raise taxes" version.

    Hey we can still rob everyone of their savings too! Lets do that!

    You're on to something there. Look at how they want to take over 401Ks and IRAs in exchange for a small future annuity in order to bail out underfunded union pensions.

    I'm just going to tell the government my nest eggs are on the porch. Let them try to fight the robin on the nest. They'll lose an eye and need a shampoo.

    ...am I the only one who finds it incredibly ironic that this clip sponsored by House republicans is championing fiscal conservatism, a scant few years after being ousted after several years of increasing the budget in a Congress where they had the majority?

    Should I really believe them, and blame Obama and the Democrats when neither party seems to actually practice what they preach?
