    Maybe they should stop giving away food stamps and free passes?

    They will go after military members, both active and retired, before they will discourage more illegals coming in to get their freebies. Ads continue to run in Mexico informing people of the giveaways that await them in the states.

    People are chatting away on their free phones and spending food stamp money on tattoos and gambling, but the first cuts will be to those who earned their way. This administration could care less if military retirees can survive without their hard-earned, yet measley pensions. Active military might have to figure out how to survive for a few months with no pay. They might even threaten the elderly that they won't get their social security checks again.

    But, never do government dependents worry about whether they will receive less fun money or be forced to make do without free phones. We keep hearing about all these new jobs, so if they are real, time to kick some able-bodied butts and direct them to the nearest employment office.

    Obama could have saved money by skipping his vacation. Michelle Obama doesn't need so damn many assistants. Yea, they could make cuts if they really cared about this country's plight, but instead they continue to spend as fast as they can.

    Another opportunity for the TPM nitwits to get our credit rating downgraded again.

    Obama has added 48% more food stamps since being in office
    6 trillion dollars in debt

    Yet, we're the idiots? LOL He has spent very little of this on useful infraustructure or to keep our tech edge.

    Where has it gone? Besides on free shit.
