    Republicans Pressing for a Balanced Budget Fail to Deliver Details on How - Bloomberg

    More political pandering to the base by the GOP without any real substance.

    Obama has submitted one budget to date, and it was overwhelmingly rejected by both sides of the aisle. Perhaps Little Lord Obamaboy should submit a budget that is fiscally responsible. Cause, you know, that's kinda how this works.

    Pretty sure this thread isn't about what President Obama has or has not done. Do you plan on actually commenting on the article or just defending the GOP by trying to deflect?

    ZOMG!

    Politicians being politicians!

    Alert the media! Wait, media already alerted!

    This is fauxtrageous...:eek:


    Bottom line: It takes two to tango but the tune will likely be one without tax increases anywhere in the theme... Not enough votes in House or Senate to pass anything that will label them as "tax hikers" - be they D or R... Who the hell know what the final deal will be, but I don't think you'll be seeing any tax hikes included in it...

    Most of these "politicians" aren't saying much of anything about plans...

    Yeah. KInda reminds me of Barry Boy and his plan to cut entitlements. Of course he has no specifics yet but I'm sure he'll let us know in time. I haven't seen that in the press yet and I ain't holding my breath for it to be the hot topic on LSM.

    Wonder if he'll count the 500B he took out of Medicare to fund his clusterfuck of a HC bill??

    Silly.. you have to pass the bill with the cuts, in order to see what's in it, remember?
