    The Pentagon has proposed $487 billion in budget cuts - but Romney wants to increase Pentagon budget by $2 trillion during same period. Romney really wants to protect all the assets of the rich and powerful.

    I wouldn't care one single iota what the defense industry lobby sucks out of the government if we had fair and simple taxes, public budgets that were balanced by law, and transparency in all things politics.

    A statement like that under current conditions simply shows Romney as a tool of the industry.

    Yeah... I know... not really 'news', is it.

    Is it possible that you don't realize what a mistake it is for an Obamunist to bring up the budget???

    With a Ryan Budget plan, a Tea Party Budget plan, the Mack Penny Budget plan, and others
    all designed to balance the federal budget, and cut the deficit....

    ....only one individual has produced a 'budget plan' that

    NEVER....

    ....balances the budget.


    Wanna guess who that would be?

    Here, let me help:

    “(WASHINGTON) – On Wednesday, Jeffrey Zients, Acting White House Budget Director, appeared before the House Budget Committee. Mr. Zients was in attendance in order to defend President Obama's proposed $3.8 trillion budget for the fiscal year that begins October 1, 2013. Congressman Huelskamp, a member of the Committee, used the opportunity to ask President Obama's chief budget officer about the impact of the President Obama's budget on the debt. According to the numbers included in the President Obama's budget, gross federal debt is expected to grow to more than $26 trillion in the next decade, up from $10.6 trillion on January 20, 2009. "Mr. Zients danced around the issue, never answering the fundamental question: 'When will President Obama's budget balance?' Since he did not respond to the question, I will: the answer is 'never.' When Will President Obama's Budget Balance? Never.



    Again?

    "the fundamental question: 'When will President Obama's budget balance?' Since he did not respond to the question, I will: the answer is 'never.' "

    That's a neat trick.

    Cut taxes and spend more military.

    Now why the heck is that so damned familiar?

    Well, President Clinton gave us balanced budgets - which the next president destroyed in addition to giving us the Great Bush Recession. Therefore, austerity measures are not economically/financially wise until the economy further improves. Bush started two wars that he kept "off budget" - in addition to tax cuts.

    Now, Romney wants more tax cuts and increased military spending. Who's going to pay for it - the poor and middle class? Hell yes, if wingnuts have their way!

    Got a beef with the Bush tax cuts?

    " Tax revenues peaked during the last year of the Clinton Presidency at $2.026 trillion.... the next four years of the Bush Presidency after the 2003 reduction in tax rates saw a 44% increase in Federal tax revenues from $1.782 trillion to $2.568 trillion. That’s correct – a 44% increase in revenues after the so-called “tax break for the wealthy.”

    Sure was lucky for Clinton that Reagan finished the 'Evil Empire,' so he had a 'peace dividend,' huh?
