    Obama: 'I Will Veto Any Effort' To Undo Automatic Cuts
    national journal ^ | Nobember 21, 2011 | George E. Condon Jr.

    President Obama Monday evening blamed Republicans for the failure of the super committee to meet its deadline for a debt plan and warned that he will veto any attempt to eliminate the automatic spending cuts that go into effect with that failure.

    In an appearance in the White House briefing room a little more than an hour after the committee officially conceded failure, the president said his answer to those who want to eliminate those cuts “is simple: No. I will veto any effort to get rid of those automatic spending cuts to domestic and defense spending. There will be no easy off-ramps on this one.”

    I got to say that this is one of the few times I agree with Obama...This forces us the hell out of the middle east as it does what I believe we should do here. With the cuts in defense. Also cutting head long into welfare and other leftist shit!!! YAY!

    Not a single bill that I kown of has been proposed to stop the automatic cuts. And last I checked 6 Democrats were on that Super Committee and refused to deal with the republicans.

    But I am sure the left feels fine lying about that.

    Did anyone think the 'Super Committee" would be anything but a super failure?

    Grover Norquist made it clear, there is to be no compromise. If any Republican engaged in actual debate and sought solutons which raised taxes they would lose their job. The SC had not chance of success, six members all signed GN's pledge, taking any real debate off the table.

    You're a fucking two bit liar. The Republicans have offered many options to close many tax loopholes which essentialy raises taxes your dumbass democrats turned them down. Know why? cause obie doodle needs them to fail so he can blame his shortcomings and boy does he have a lot of those on the Republicans.. America is fed up with his shit and with your shit.. Sow.
