    to raise taxes with absolutely no talk of cutting spending at the same time.

    One can only assume these clowns have to run their own household so you would think that even a basic understanding of finances would light the way for them to understand you cannot continue spending more then you have. And if your source of funding is suffering you cannot continue pulling more from it. Yes its a (finite Pie) no money does not grow on tree's and the guberment doesn't create wealth.

    You have to understand the left... they don't exist in reality. In their world there is a never ending supply of the "other guy" from which they can always extract money to finance their retarded-ass Utopian schemes.

    Looking at this debate one can only shake their head in stunned wonder and ask how is it possible that these people simply don't get it.

    "It's the spending, stupid."

    First candidate who adopts this slogan stolen and corrected from James Carville, resonates and likely wins the WH in November.

    You've seen the budget, a bunch of hoopla was drummed up by the media and the 2 parties over them disagreeing with 1% of the budget.

    1%!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    While others focus on the 1%, I'll focus on the 99% they agree on.

    I try to avoid these useless terms "left" and "right", as both republicans and democrats agree that spending this country into economic turmoil is the way to go.

    I was agreeing with you, just kind of expanding on your point as spending goes along with our most recent record-high spending budget.

    That's an easy one.
    Cutting spending means sacred cow entitlements will be reduced. The democrat party depends on the votes of those who are recipients of public assistance. If their benefits are cut, those votes are no longer guaranteed as they are when the taxpayer tit is gorged with the milk of public assitance.
