    Funny, Im specific in what Id like to cut constantly and you never address that.

    Are you honestly suggesting we shouldnt cut anything? Because it seems pretty obvious that the Government is spending too much and the interest on the debt is rising pretty quickly.

    What exactly would you cut Flaylo?

    I never said we shouldn't cut anything, I simply ask what do Repugs want to cut and they can't seem to make up their minds. You're a fellow Philly guy from the most liberal city and you're asking me this?

    Come onnnnnnn....we all know what they mean by cuts.

    Increased privatization that ends us costing us more (al la halliburton), aand drastic reduction in "social spending" EXCEPT for the military and police state expenditures which will rise dramatically.

    This is no mystery, even if they're not willing to admit it.

    Neither party is interested in actually addressing America's problems. Demonrats included.

    I think by "Repugs", he was referring to the ones recently elected by the weak minded individuals who believed their campaign lies.

    That doesnt really answer my question.

    What does it matter if he isnt providing specifics as long as he is willing to actually cut some of the budget? And why dont you give him suggestions? What do you want to cut?

    Really? What are America's problems and what solutions have been offered by the Democrats, Republicans and idiot fringe?
    I'd really like to hear what problems the Republican's have solved since January 1981.

    First, I thought LayLow said he was leaving?

    Second, well, not much matters after the above.

    "The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. ... It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our government's reckless fiscal policies." -- Barack Hussein Obama
