    I'm not feelin' your outrage on this, Bass.

    Spending needs to be cut damn near everywhere and people are going to be affected by it.

    Using the inevitable ill effects of the cuts solely to attack the opposition in this case is counterproductive.

    You are practicing politics as usual.

    Every other intelligent government is cutting spending. You think the Brits aren't feeling the pain of Cameron's cuts? Because they are. That's the price we pay for tolerating decades of incompetence from our elected officials.

    If they want to cut spending let them first bring our troops home and quit throwing away taxpayer dollars meddling in the affairs of other countries. Eliminate all the government money going to all these contractors overseas making tons of money to nothing. After that, then lets talk about domestic budget cuts. I agree with cuts to NASA.

    Pulling out of Iraq right now would leave a very unstable country wide open to be overrun with people who want to destroy America. Long term is that a smart move? I think not. Can we not be so short termist and actually look at the real life issue, instead of pretending that we can walk away with no consequence.

    $1.4 trillion, Charlie. That's where the budget deficit is at these days. While I believe that yes, ending the wars would help, you didn't expect the GOP to actually offer those up as places to cut right out of the box did you?

    Pulling out of Iraq is going to lead to civil war, nothing more nothing less, we need to put our own citizens first, I don't believe the hype that pulling out of Iraq endangers Americans, we've already been there done that with that lie. What do you mean by short term? We've been there almost 10 years in Iraq and nearing 11 in Afghanistan, this is a waste of finances and time and lives, we need to rebuild and and empower our own cities, not those in Afghanistan and Iraq. How can anyone agree with cutting our own people short to "help" those two countries? There's something bigger at stake in these countries, no one gives a damn about the people, its the resources that these countries have that people care about.

    Why do you think we are still there? Why hasn't Obama 'bought the troops home'? Wanna know why? Because he actually understands what the consequence would be. I may not like Obama.... but he's clearly smart enough to understand that. It's a pity that the rest of America can't be as rational as he is. Hysterical repeating of 'bring 'em home' doesn't make for strong foreign relations policy.

    We need to realize that this deficit.... it's our fault.... because instead of living within our means, we sat back and allowed our politicians to spend us to the edge of bankruptcy. We need to be intelligent, and stop whining. We are going to have to face higher taxes, we are going to have to face horrific cuts, we are going to have to face paying higher prices... and it is our own damned fault.
