    Three cheers for Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-TX) who didn’t mince words or suck up when she debated Neil Cavuto Wednesday (4/13/11) about Congressional Progressive Caucus’ People’s Budget as an alternative to the House GOP budget.

    Johnson said, "I want to see some vision and planning for the future of this nation. All of us know that just cutting and doing nothing else is doing nothing more than running jobs out of the country, and getting rid of jobs that are here. We can not solve the problem by just cutting… We've got to have revenue generation, we’ve got to have money for education, we’ve got to innovate, we’ve got to create jobs."

    Cavuto interrupted. "Congresswoman, we’re broke."

    Johnson said, “We can not afford to allow this nation to throw away its future. We've already lost the edge."

    Cavuto was a one-trick pony, essentially saying the same thing throughout the interview. "We've already lost the edge, Congresswoman, because we're so damn broke… Maybe it's time to dig out."

    Johnson said, "We can not dig out by cutting all of the livelihood away from our future. We can not do it at the expense of our seniors, we can not do it at the expense of our future with our young people in education."

    Cavuto interrupted. "Don't we owe those young people a debt free life? …Maybe the best present we can give them is no debt."

    Johnson replied, "The best present we can give them is a good education with a good direction in innovation so that we can get this country moving. I am not willing to give all of what we’ve invested to another nation."

    It went on like this until, apparently, Johnson had had enough. She said, "You don't listen, you just scream, and you're screaming the same thing these fools are screaming here... What are these kids going to do? They’ll have no education, no innovation, no health care, seniors will be out of nursing homes."

    Cavuto shot back, "If you’re broke, you don’t have options… I would love to have a house in Tahiti, then I came to this annoying fact that I don't have the money."

    Johnson said, "You don't get any return without investment."

    "Where are you going to get it (raising money)?" Cavuto asked.

    Johnson said, "Restructuring this tax code, by getting rid of the big tax breaks for the very rich, closing loopholes for the big companies, tax these companies that are getting offshore." She also mentioned the "wars that we should not have been in." She said to Cavuto, "You sit there and be as ignorant as you’d like to be." After chiding him for having gone to “hell in a handbasket,” she admonished, “You’ve got to get yourself some vision and find a way to solve this problem.”

    Johnson is a top dog for standing up to Cavuto and saying there's more to deficit reduction than just cutting, there’s investing

    Thread title = Untruth in advertising.

    All Johnson did was snivel about how she personally didn't derive some benefit from the socialistic welfare state....Then she defaulted to the standard socialist/progressive mewling about "investing" (i.e. spending) more money and raising taxes.

    Looney Tunes are less of a cartoon than the modern Democrat Party.

    LOL I am sure that tune would be different if there was an "R" behind her name.

    "I want to see some vision and planning for the future of our Nation"? Where has Eddie Bernice been for the last four years while democrats had total majority in congress and the last two years while democrats had total majority including a socialist president who hired a communist to represent the so-called "green jobs"? Was Eddie Bernice in some limbo land somewhere rather than representing the greatest Country in the world? How can we believe anything democrats say while they are responsible for the mess we are in and the high fuel prices that we are struggling with? Vision and planning or lack of it? That's why voters fired the democrat party last November.

    It's not about Politics anymore. It's about Arithmetic.

    We don't have the bloody money for these games anymore. At least the Ryan budget addresses that small, trifling inconvenience. You can try to rob the rich all you want, but they don't have the money to pay it all either, PLUS... they have the means desire and resources in which to run away from your taxation. It's happened EVERYWHERE a 'millionaires' tax is tried. That's why Andrew Cuomo just ended NY's millionaire tax.

    I saw the interview as well.

    I was waiting for the seniors eating catfood and kid dying in the street line.

    I do agree with her on the tax code. That thing needs to go. They need to close the loopholes and get rid of the subsidies and tax breaks. We need a flat tax and get rid of the current tax clusterfuck.

    I think Cavuto did great on the interview. As for her she was telling him he needed to get some vision and solve the problem. Thought that was what she and the rest of the Clowns were were in elected to do?? You know. Solve the problems. Hell they couldn't solve anything with a supermajority.

    That's why you need to realize that the goals of the socialists and their useful idiots is to not solve the problem till power is permanently in their hands. Till then, they need the crisis to keep people dancing to their tune. If Daffy stops playing before he gets the Tasmania Devil in the cage, he's dead meat.
