    It was Obama's idea to start with ! If he can't find a way to cut $5 out of every $1000 we spend, I think he's a very poor person to be in charge of our humongous budget ! Were talking 1/2 of 1%, are we that far gone with our debt that we can't cut 1 penny out of every $2.00 ? If we are then we are in really deep do-do ! If you spend a $100.00 on groceries could you cut 50 cents and still eat ? Think about it ! deep do-do spend 100 00 groceries cut 50 cents eat

    It's past time for the two parties to come together and start working for the betterment of this country. Both sides are to blame for the current mess we are in.

    We've had some tax increases, I rarely agree with the conservatives, but this time, I think they are right in demanding cuts in the spending. The dems need to step up and start negotiating and get spending under control

    LOL the people of the US should DEMAND a solid plan and a BUDGET that will be balanced with cuts to politicians pay and bennies FIRST then do a triage of what can be cut....then prosecute any and all government fraud...and stop all aide to illegals(they are after all federal criminals)...when that is done look at if we should raise taxes.

    If they can not come to an agree to balance the budget THEY should NOT get paid till they have it signed....

    Funny how only 30% blame the man who offered the idea, while demonizing the idiots who went along with it. I'd say both are to blame. It WAS Obama's idea via his advisory team, but the Republican hierarchy was dumb enough to go along with it. But here is the rub. We will still be spending MORE than we did last year. How is that armageddon?

    The Republicans would be letting Obama have his way if they go the 'CQ' route, because the CQ was and is HIS baby although he did lie about it during his Inaugural address.

    Since Obama is hell bent on sending the USA into bankruptcy and devaluing our currency, the sequestration cuts "can" be put on Republicans, because there is no way to stop this guy and an out of control Senate.

    Obama is lame, isn't he - just like your response.

    You guys criticize the GOP for being obstructionist, yet now you want to blame them for being cooperative. They gave Obama what HE asked for. It's all his.

    Boehner is a putz. A whimpering putz. A poster child for what is wrong with the Republican party. He is weak, yet the rank and file were even weaker in allowing him to remain Speaker of the House.

    That's just too obvious. Giving money to people who horde money does not work. We tried that "trickle down economy" crap before and it did not work. Yet these moron republicans want you to just keep giving our money to greedy people.

    "And you ppl want to keep giving hard earned money who don't earn what is given to them", yes, just like capital gains. But, then again people like you are showing their true inhumanity and other personality flaws. You seem to think that all people who get State assistance as lazy people trying to live off of the State. True, there are a small number of people who abuse this system, but the vast majority of people getting assistance are people who just need help for one reason or another. When I was a child, My mother had to go on welfare for a few months until she found a job. That was over 25 years ago. What about those who lose their job because some greedy bastards moved the jobs to China? If you won't care about any one but yourself, why should we care about YOU?

    I never said all ppl. you make an ass out of yourself when you assume. then again you don't need to assume to make an ass out of yourself. Sorry but that number is quite vast, not small. That greedy bastard is one of obama's drones. Emmett who owns GE. Who by the way hasn't paid any taxes in years. I don't need you to give a damn about me. I did fine before i knew any of you and i'll do fine when you ppl are gone and groveling in the gutters.

    Yes, rather than wiping out the debt, let's play the blame game. Let's distract everyone from having to bother with the truth that the party's OVER.
