    Obama's speech skipped la-de-dah right over our budget problems....instead he emphasized handing out the goodies...

    If the President won't even be bothered with the budget why should we be bothered with paying taxes....?

    Because they'll put you in jail if you don't?

    I think he just didn't want to open that can of worms today. Tomorrow for sure.

    Yea, we'll get put in jail for not paying or cheating on our taxes. I'd like to know how Geithner and other people in the Obama administration got around that after getting caught. Somehow, I don't think the IRS will accept our excuse if we use Turbo Timmy's reason for cheating. He was ignorant on tax laws, so now he writes tax laws. trustthegovernment trustthegovernment trustthegovernment

    President Obama is a self professed failed leader. Here is a speech he gave about the Bush administration in 2006 while in Congress.

    "The fact that we are here today to debate raising Americas debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US government can't pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our governments reckless fiscal policies. Increasing Americas debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that "the buck stops here." Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. America deserves better."

    Well said Mr. President.

    I really feel bad for Obama supporters. At best he is a mere demagogue. At worst he is trying to weaken the country and destroy it.

    AGREED!!!

    I for one KNOW several people that are NOT paying their taxes before 4/15/2013 as they are getting extensions and then extensions again.. and by that time August 2013 Obama will be in the middle of House impeachment activities AND then the 2014 election will bring 6 GOP senators for the 10 open Dem seats!
    Senate will be GOP and by that time the country will really be in BIG FINANCIAL trouble as tax revenues will be WAY down if more people like the people I know are going to be deferring paying taxes!!!
    It will happen!

    I am nowhere as smart as the President and definitely not you "Lakhota".. but I do know that millions of the 100 million taxpayers are finding out little details about government spending such as the following and as a result.. millions of taxpayers are considering filing "extensions on 4/15/13 and extensions on 8/2013... and by then..
    BECAUSE they are just about feed up with these types of spending of their TAX DOLLARS!!!

    These are SPENDING PROBLEMS!!!
    Government auditors spent the past five years examining all federal programs and found that 22 percent of them --
    costing taxpayers a total of $123 billion annually - fail to show any positive impact on the populations they serve!


    - spend $2.6 million to make sure prostitutes in China drink less on the job.
    - $1.44 million in federal funds estimating the size of the population and examining the “social milieu” of male prostitutes in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
    - Washington spends $25 billion annually maintaining unused or vacant federal properties
    - Studying pig poop. The Environmental Protection Agency awarded a $141,450 grant under the Clean Air Act to fund a Chinese study on swine manure and
    - a $1.2 million grant to the United Nations for clean fuel promotion.
    - Amtrak snacks. Federally subsidized Amtrak lost $84.5 million on its food and beverage services in 2011 and $833.8 million over the past 10 years.
    - Conferences for government employees. In 2008 and 2009 alone, the Department of Justice spent $121 million to host or participate in 1,832 conferences.

    U.S. Senator Tom Coburn, M.D. (R-OK) today released a new oversight report, “Wastebook 2010” that highlights some of the most egregious examples of government waste in 2010.
    Dr. Coburn Releases New Oversight Report:?Wastebook 2010: A Guide to Some of the Most Wasteful Government Spending of 2010? - Press Releases - Tom Coburn, M.D., United States Senator from Oklahoma

    AGAIN the problem is perceptions of people that Obama just wants to do BIG THINGS and it is the LITTLE things that are costing us BIG TIME!!!
    ObamaCARE... is costing JOBS!!! people now working 35 hours ...that cost payroll taxes alone!
