Democrats should get real and present their SPENDING CUTS before a tax increase on anyone. AGREE OR DISAGREE?

    I've been saying this for years. After watching our money get spent on ridiculous projects, wasted and pretty much squander, I say NO MORE MONEY TO THESE CROOKS and INCOMPATANTS.

    But it won't happen. Obama loves to spend taxpayer dollars. And if he can't get enough from the rich, which he can't, he'll have no problem taking it from the poor and middle class.

    And reading some of the comments by Obama supporters/liberals on this post.. my suspicion that Obama supporters/liberals are truly stupid has been proven to be correct.

    Absolutely, if the cuts aren't in the plan the cuts will never happen. Democrats have proven that they've never seen a dollar they didn't want to spend. They have no intention of stopping or slowing their spending, they want to raise taxes to have more to spend.

    There are many places to make spending cuts. Critics say some earmarks look like vanity projects such as $2 million for Rep. Charles B. Rangel Center for Public Service in New York. Ron Paul tapped taxpayers for the Wharton County Fair in Texas. Some projects may look slightly strange, such as $213,000 for olive fruit fly research in France. There was an $853,000 earmark for coffee and cocoa production in Maryland. Then the majority leaders in the House set aside $300,000 to fight weeds in Maryland and Nevada. Alaska receives $113,000 for rodent control. And the most notorious example was the proposed Bridge to Nowhere in Alaska, which asked for $223 million to build a bridge to an island with 80 people.

    Congress treats tax payers like a giant ATM. Republicans spend like drunken sailors when they have the power. When they don't, they suddenly become fiscal hawks. GWB signed every spending bill that crossed his desk with Boehner, Cantor, Ryan, all cheering him on.

    Trim earmarks... and really, does Big Oil need 3 billion in subsidies? Take a weedeater to that runaway train as well. Problem is, in their retarded thinking, Republicans see all of that as tax increases... and Grover Norquist willl never allow that, and that is who runs the House.

    as a matter of fact, i have voted for this president twice now and partly because of the same damn promise - END THE BUSH TAX CUTS - do it now, don't care about the payroll tax cut, end it too. But, the majority have voted twice for the same thing and it better happen this time - End The Bush Tax Cuts.

    Think the results of election were pretty clear - Republicans like to call this a 'slim victory' but had Romney won they would have been talking about the 'land-slide' and 'mandate'. Fact was that Dems won seats in both houses and the presidency and Obama made NO secret of TAXES on the top 2% being the priority. NOW - As a part of a negotiated compromise should OBAMA give in on some savings beyond what he has already outlined - perhaps it would be a good idea to put us on that path - Farm programs and DOD are easy first targets for additional savings. Should Medicaid/Medicare/Emergency Unemployment benefits be on the table? Probably long term but not short term.

    From the New York Timesabout the Republicon proposal:

    "Which programs would be cut? The letter doesn’t say, and Republicans don’t seem to care, as long as they blindly achieve their goal of cutting a big chunk out of government. The offer was a transparent attempt to appear responsive to Mr. Obama’s detailed proposal from last week, without doing any actual math or hard work.
    If Mr. Boehner had used a calculator, for example, he would have discovered it is impossible to produce $800 billion in revenue from eliminating deductions without severely curtailing the deduction for charitable donations, which is vital to the nonprofit sector. Doing so without limiting the charitable deduction would inevitably raise taxes on the middle class, as nonpartisan analysts have concluded, and would have a much greater effect on the upper middle class than on the very rich.

    The only way to produce the necessary revenue is to combine some limits on deductions with an end to the Bush tax cuts on the rich, and Mr. Obama, fortunately, has been adamant he will not consider any plan that does not do so. The Boehner letter, by contrast, actually advocates lowering rates, suggesting that Republicans are still clinging to the notion, rejected by voters, that was put forward by Mitt Romney."

    Donations that are tax deductible are donations that still cost the taxpayers in the end.

    Take Bruce Springsteen for example, He fly's with his band and does a concert for charity. Then writes off every single penny in expenses on his taxes and that is a burden on the taxpayers. If you are doing something for charity not a penny should be tax deductible. CHARITY is giving not TAKING.

    Same old crap.Everyone wants spending cut UNLESS it is being spent on them or someone they care for.
    Ask any conservative...Would you fight and die if necessary for your country? The answer is HELL YES ! Will you pay 5% more in taxes for your country?...HELL NO. Hard to believe they worship money more than life itself.
    Don't the tax cuts AND spending cuts automatically kick in? Let er rip.And when your un-employment is stopped call your republican representative and ask him why he will support corporations out sourcing of our jobs but will not lift a finger to help those suffering from that out sourcing.

    Without major cuts, there is amount tax that can levied to pay for our current federal spending and this does not include that massive increase in federal spending Obamacare will bring in 2014 and a host of other Liberal entitlements that are being proposed by Obama.

    We are once kicking the can down the road for someone else to deal with.

    The Liberal appetite for government handouts, is forcing the government to continue borrowing money at ever increasing rates and there seems to be no end to their apatite.

    This is Despite warnings from every major economist inside government and even economists from nearly every Liberal university, that our current level of spending is unsustainable.
