Obama late on the budget (3) times, democrats not even putting a budget together and obama will blame the GOP in Congress on Tuesday, the 1,000th day without a budget? That's almost (3) years! Can't wait for this 'sad-state-of-the-union'...

Ms. Mom - profits employ, taxes destroy 2012/01/23 21:36:50
After almost (3) years of no Congressional budget resulting in a Bond downgrade of U.S. Treasuries, Obama will deliver his 'sad-state-of-the-nation' campaign speech designed to blame Republicans in Congress.

The democrats
did not even offer a budget for Congress to consider last year! The Republicans put forth a budget for consideration but we know what democrats did... absolutely nothing!

So, obama you can play the blame game but you can't ignore the facts!


EXCERPT --->

"This will mark the third time in four years the president has missed his statutory requirement to present a budget on time, while trillion-dollar budget deficits continue to mount," Mr. Ryan, Wisconsin Republican, said.


Tuesday, when Mr. Obama delivers his State of the Union address to a joint session of Congress, also marks the 1,000th day since Congress passed a budget.


House Republicans last year powered a budget through their chamber, but Senate Democrats never put one on their chamber's floor. The last budget that passed was in 2009, which set the stage for the health care bill's passage in early 2010.

    Personally, I see this as a government responsibilty. If Obama cannot come up with a budget, that seems to me to be a direct contravention of his responsibilities and he should be removed. Congress, being a joint venture, should be able to fix this and if not able, should also be removed. Perhaps if ALL concerned were fined daily until they fix the problem, it might get fixed.

    Another cut & paste job from the WashingtonSlimes. A saner look at the budget says neither party produced a passable budget. The Dems ran their progressive House Caucus budget to the Senate before passing it and found it would never get Senate approval, passed a CR instead. The GOP did not test the waters first, passed their shift more income to the top budget and had the Senate vote to decline to debate it.

    For those not brainwashed by conservative media, the big WH deal that Boehner agreed to was a win for the GOP with 3.3 trillion in spending cuts, having the Dems compromise on cutting entitlements for 800 billion in revenue, a 4-1 spending cut to revenue ratio, reducing the debt by 4 trillion. Norquist pledged members of the GOP could not accept a good deal for them, instead passed less than a trillion in spending cuts, losing AAA with S&P.; You are entitled to your own opinion (budget not passed BS), but not your own facts. Fact is the Ryan budget did not cut anything, not even the less than a trillion the first 3 years. Fact is S&P; in April said 4 trillion in long term cuts or a credit downgrade is coming.

    FACT: The democratic senate KILLED the cut/cap/balance bill produced by the GOP House then the socialist senators were whisked away in their cars not to hold a session.

    FACT: The "deal" obama wanted was to double-count a TRILLION dollars due to 'savings' on military expenses from Iraq/Afghan war.

    FACT: The "deal" obama wanted would have increased taxes on ALL Americans this year - he needs to fund obamacare and realizes stealing $500 Billion from medicare won't do the trick!

    FACT: The Ryan/Sununu plan is the only plan that responsibly deals with the $60 Trillion dollar future entitlement debt. (WHICH IS INCORPORATED INTO NEWT'S CONTRACT WITH AMERICA AT NEWTGINGRICH.ORG)

    Feinstein pretty much sums up the mentality of her socialist party when asked about cuts to government spending ---->

    "I represent a huge state where huge numbers of people are dependent on us," she said. "We always knew what was going on (with Presidents Bush and Clinton). None of that (information) is available to us now, and that's not good. ... It doesn't help you build a team."

    WELCOME TO THE PARTY OF DEMOCRATIC SOCIALISTS ---> "HUGE NUMBERS OF PEOPLE ARE DEPENDENT ON US"......

    SLIP OF THE TONGUE THERE DIANE?

    it wasn't a win for anybody. it was an immediate tax increase and a notional $3.3T cut over 10 years.

    as both sides are noting, if we can't get one budget in a year, who would believe anything beyond the second year of ANY budget? maybe you would, but not me.

    you would have had to have been retarded to accept those terms.

    and no credit to Boehner, he THOUGHT about it.

    What S+P said was that there was no realistic plan to control deficits. do you think that they would have rejected a year to year spending cut of $1T as 'realistic'?

    why do you (the royal you) try and scam everyone?

    Dingy Harry Reid last allowed a budget to come to the floor and was passed in May 2009. We have since operated on continuing resolutions. Like so much of everything the "Sit On Their Hands" Senate Democrats have done, they have aided in the chaos that have held this country back in the creation of jobs and allowing Barry to carry a credit card he thinks Daddy will payoff. Like any other spoiled college kid, he has no financial responsibility and that is being allowed by the Senate democrats. Let us not forget the 15 jobs bills the house has sent to the senate that Dingy Harry won't even schedule for debate on the floor.

  • Jimbo Annie~P... 2012/01/24 12:01:39
    Jimbo
    Name one jobs bill, it does not exist in the congressional record. Regulations (compliance is a 3% cost) are not stopping expansion investment, lack of demand is doing it. The GOP says increase investment income, cut demand in their proposals. Newsflash since 2008 1.6 trillion sitting on balance sheets became 2 trillion waiting for demand. There is no lack of investment income.

    P.S. the senate voted, repeat voted, not to debate the Ryan budget. Over 400 Pelosi House bills never got a chance to come to the floor for debate, let alone a vote. The party of no is well deserved as that is more than the previous 30 years combined.

    The lack of demand exists because the American people and the world for that matter have zero confidence in the obama administration because of his insistent pushing of socialism down the throats of the American people and business!

    FACT: A recent poll of small businesses showed that 78% WILL NOT be hiring this year because of the effects of OBAMACARE and they are afraid of what obama's socialist Congress might do next!

    obama/pelosi great way to shake up the economy!

    Now, what is obama's answer to address the $60 Trillion in unfunded future Entitlement spending?

    Diane Feinstein sums it up...

    'I represent a huge state with people dependent on us'.....

    IS THAT WHAT YOU WANT? DEPENDENCY? BECAUSE YOU SUPPORT A REGIME SET ON EXACTLY THAT.

    that $2T could be put to work tomorrow if they had any clue as to what the gov't was going to do next.

    demand? i'd say its thanks strictly to the regulatory uncertainty about any market.

    look at Keystone. you don't think anyone that has $5B to invest in a moneymaker like a pipeline is going to spend it now?


    i would suggest that the minute Obama is gone, that money will come out with such a rush that we'll have to worry about the inflation that Obama and the democrats have built into M! and M2...

    Hey Jimbo, don't you remember? The House did pass a budget with Paul Ryan in charge but Obama and his Democrats refused it as Democrats always do. Guess there wasn't enough frivolous spending in it to make those regressives happy. Actually, Obama wanted a blank check.
