    Obama's 2012 Budget Gets NO Votes
    How can anyone take anything he says any more seriously?

    Let me add that the fear mongering that all of these things are going to shut down?

    people will keep paying taxes

    I know the deficit has gotten large but last I looked there still taking income tax from me

    Cool, so we're posting news from two months ago now?

    Harry Reid and President Obama both have put entitlement reform on the table. What has the GOP? A gimmicky accounting trick.

    The press does not even hide it anymore
    could you imagine GWB in this situation? People who read my threads think this is personal. I could not imagine sitting on Obama side of the aisle and listening to the things he is saying and offering no alternative

    Ryan got 40 votes on his

    There is enough conservative influence in the house of representatives now, particularly from the new tea party members, that establishment republicans like Boehner have to take conservatives seriously. Boehner knows that to face the national debt problem, there has to be reform in social security and medicare/medicaid, therefore specific budget proposals have been made.

    Reid/BO don't produce a budget, because if they did, it would show they are ignoring the deficit problem, and if they don't, they can demogogue the issue and frighten old people, as well as take attention away from obamacare, which has such grave implications for the elderly.

    If only they just wanted to cut Medicare. The reality is they seek to end it.
