    Go figure.

    "Just 5 percent of Obama supporters favor tax increases alone to solve the deficit, half the number who back an approach that relies entirely on spending cuts."

    "In comparison to his first term, 47 percent said that they hope he is more moderate in his second four years."

    "Remarkably, 43 percent of Obama voters agreed with the statement that “Programs such as welfare and unemployment benefits are making people too dependent on government.”

    Hey KosherGirl--

    I assume you want significant spending cuts. Tell us what you want to cut that will make a substantial dent in the deficit number without damaging consumer spending (which is about 2/3 of our economic activity).

    You believe we should abandon health care reform legislation? I assume you mean to abandon the entire piece of legislation.

    I also assume that you didn't personally experience any problems with the health care system as it existed prior to reform.

    The lack of balance in the approach is disturbing...especially when we know that the proposed hikes will amount to only 80 billion a year in revenue while our annual deficit is in the 1.2 trillion dollar range.

    Look...tax hikes are a must...we have no choice....but that doesnt mean we should write laws that are solely directed to one class of people.

    Romneys approiach is the right approach.....cap deductions. It will apply to ALL Americans....but only those that deduct more than say 60K (arbitrary number) will be affected. And if you deduct more than 60K...you are wealthy.

    I dont get it where people think it is American to write laws that specify only one group of people.

    What would the outrage be if a law was passed....no....JUST SUGGESTED...saying that anyone over 300 pounds is not allowed to fly becuase it is dagerous to the rest of the passengers...

    Why is no one addressing the idea that a law, for the first time, will be passed that SPECIFIES a class of people?
