    The American people are finally beginning to realize that the GOP budget plan is a plan that attempts to reduce the deficit on the backs of seniors and the poor. At the same time, the GOP wants to give another round of tax cuts to the Super Rich.

    Obama's speech drew the line in the sand. Seniors can decide to accept reduced coverage under the GOP plan, all the while giving the Super Rich another tax break. It is a game changer.

    Obama's speech was full of lies. Not that it matters to sheep like yourself.

    He recaptured the Democratic base. He had been critisized for giving to much to the "give the rich a break" Republicans. The arguement not is back in the Democrats favor. The voters in 2012 will relalize, giving tax breaks to the rich, will not reduce the deficit.

    I think that is "factually accurate." Now, come up with more Republican lies.

    Its the same old same old progressive belief that "they" are the ones who get to decide what to do with "your" money, not even currently, but in the future, via deficit spending.

    There are not enough rich people to close the current deficit, no matter how hard you try, without cuts to the current federal budget. To tax our way out of this you would HAVE to increase taxes on people making below 250k, no matter how hard you try.

    People do not have to prove why the goverment shouldn't take additonal taxes from them, the goverment needs to prove why they need the additonal funds. Until the opposite stops being the case, we will never fix the current debt situation.

    Actually even the democrats are starting to realize he is a useless POS. They are calling for primarys now. Even Pelosi denounced him. Obama has alienated everyone.
