    Liberals are pushing hard to bankrupt this country. We owe almost 14 trillion dollars. The other day the President said that we are soon going to be spending over 1 trillion dollars a year just in interest on the money that we owe. Democrats are offering their solution. Dem's want to borrow more, spend more, owe more, and to raise taxes to stifle job growth. Conservatives want to cut the spending, stop ear marks, reduce taxes to spur job growth. Conservatives most importantly want spending control. Which option do you think is in the best interest of USA?

    "The United States' latest fiscal standoff -- an intensifying impasse over whether to raise the federal debt ceiling -- got a sudden jolt Monday when a top credit rating service expressed pessimism at D.C.'s political will to solve the debt crisis.

    It remained unclear whether Standard & Poor's decision to change its outlook on U.S. fiscal health over the next two years from "stable" to "negative" would prompt the White House and Congress to agree on a debt fix. But it certainly prompted both sides to affirm they are serious about the issue.

    “Serious reforms are needed to ensure America’s fiscal health," House Majority Leader Eric Cantor said in a written statement, calling S&P's announcement " a wake-up call to those in Washington asking Congress to blindly increase the debt limit."

    Blah blah blah.

    Standard response.

    No one who considers their vote for Ronald Ronald George George George or George again to have been a good idea cares about the deficit.

    Now that we are past the partisan bumper stickers what would you like to do to lower that deficit so we can keep paying for our aircraft carriers?

    Reagan , H. Bush and D. Bush both raised the deficit, expanded government and the national debt.

    If only the Republicans were in power the budget would be balanced.

    Bill Clinton was the last and only President to have a balanced budget since WW2

    The country is bankrupt because we repeatedly cut our tax rates while we increase spending

    Politicians on neither side are willing to stand up to the idea that a $14 trillion debt means EVERYONE needs to sacrifice something. The rich need to contribute at past tax levels, the middle class needs to put off getting Social Security, the poor need to make do with less benefits.

    To a politician, saying "I cut your taxes" is easy
    Saying, "I gave you this" is easy

    Telling people that they have to pay more and receive less is hard

    Many republicans are also responsible, yes the democrats are even worse about spending money we don't have by borrowing but don't be fooled into thinking the repubs are much better.

    Some of their new house members are good but most of the older republicans who have been around are guilty of spending money we don't have.

    I'm not excusing the current dem senate or the dem president who have added more to the debt and have larger defecits than george bush did in 8 years, dont take this as an excuse, I'm just making sure your eyes are wide open.

    Did you know if we tax the top 1% of income earners, who already pay 40% of all federal income tax, at 100% it still wouldn't make up for obama's budget defecit this year?

    If you didin't know this now you do, if you did then how do you think raising taxes on the rich will balance the budget? You can't do it with taxes alone...we need to cut every government program (including my benefits from govt) and eliminate some too.

    You can cut SS/Medicare because those aren't entiltlements, those are items that every tax payer pays into their whole life as a forced government retirement investment....but we have spineless politicians in both parties and these 2 huge problems will never get adressed.

    This is what happens when the losers of society are supported by the taxpayers. Taxes in this country are a fcukking joke.........and by the way.........many of the lefty members on here dont own anything so them talking about taxes is like a Jamaican guy giving advice on building ice rinks.
