    FYI, the supercommittee is made up of 6 democrats and 6 republicans. 

    Like I've said all along, both sides have a hand in this mess.

    A couple of key lines from the article;

     

    Congressional Republicans, spurred by Tea Party activists, set off this unprecedented crisis because they refused to raise the government's borrowing limit unless spending was cut by an equal amount. And they would not accept more revenue as a means to offset a hike in the debt ceiling....

    Republicans on the panel rejected raising any new revenue. So the trigger for automatic spending cuts was cocked.




    So, the Republicans wanted to behave rationally.

    That's somehow wrong?

    We're here because of the deficit spending and the 5.3 trillion addded to the national debt by obama's spending.

    Now he wants those who opposed his spending and his policies to pay for all his spending.

    I really hope the Republicans don't cave. Obama has no plans to cut any of his spending, just wants to tax and spend more.

    Republicans should let him take us over the cliff.

    That's what Obama wants anyway, taxes across the board so he continue doing the only thing he's good at, spending other's money..

    Oh. And he and Marie Antoinetter plan to be in Hawaii when we go over the cliff on a 20 day 4 million dollar vacation paid for by the US taxpayers.

    Simple question numbnuts....

     

    If Obama hasn't passed a budget in 4 yrs where does all his out-of-control spending come from?

    Where did he get the $5 trillion dollars from?

     



    Well if he ain't spending, who is adding on all the debt? 

    Oh, nevermind...I know the answer.....the republicans. Duh.

    So you can't answer my simple question. Got it.

     

    Funny how all the whacko wingnuts keep regurgitating the echo chamber talking points yet they can't answer a simple, straightforward question on the merits of their 'argument'.

    It is a simple fact that the two 'arguments' conflict with each other;

    The wingnuts keep regurgitating the "Obama is a big spender" rhetoric and at the same time attacking him for not passing a budget.

     

    Hey barbie, you are the one's throwing around the inane rhetoric. Maybe you should find a way to reconcile the obvious absurdity of the two 'arguments'.

     

    Here's another simple question.

    In the USA form of gov't, who controls the purse strings?

     

     




    Most of the spending was done his first two years when he got obamacare and the stimulus.

    Basically both on party line votes.

    He had a fillibusterproof majority in those frist two years in both houses.

    He's been a lame duck since the Republicans took over the house in 2010.

    This is OBAMA'S DEBT.

    Obama increased the national 5.3 trillion dollars in just 4 years.

    More debt in just 4 years then all of the rest of the American presidents combined.

    Now he proposes no spending cuts and an increase in spending.

    This is laughable.

    BWAAAAAAAAAAAA HAAAAAAAAAAAA HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

     

     

    Whacko wingnut ignorance on display.

    1) Obama hasn't passed a budget in 3 years

    2) Obama is the biggest spender in history

    3) If the arguement is 1, then disregard 2 and vice versa.

     

    Fvcking morons.




    850 billion stimulus bill passed by the democrats in congress.

    Ignoramous he had a Nancy Pelosi controlling the house for two years, where all the spending and funding originated.

    How do think welfare, food stamps and disability has grown to record numbers the past 4 years?

    Any guesses?

    Size of Goverment has grown to the largest numbers ever,all on Obama's watch.

    Nation's credit rating down graded.

    Impressive stuff.

    Hey numbnuts, $800 billion isn't even close to $5 trillion.

     

    Where did the other $4.5 trillion come from?

    Is basic freaking math that hard on you wingnuts?




    Are you this stupid?

    The total national debt now stands at $15.8 trillion, up from $10.6 trillion when Obama took office in 2008.

    Question: Has Obama passed a budget in 3 yrs?

     

     

    C'mon numbnuts, that's a gimmie. Even a imbecile like you can answer that one.




    No he hasn't but that hasn't stopped him from signing bills into law you idiot. Like the stimulus bill in 2009 for 850 billion.

    The federal government will end fiscal year 2012 with a $ 1.2 trillion deficit marking the 4th consecutive year of trillion-plus deficits.

    Can't answer a simple question.

    Gawd you idiots are ridiculous.




    The democrat have not passed a budget because it constricts their spending.

    The democrat led senate has not proposed a budget in 4 years.

    They get what they want by writing and passing bills with their majorities in both houses.

    Good answer spanky, now we're getting somewhere.

     

    If he hasn't passed a budget, aside from the $800 billion stimulus, where did the other $4.5 trillion dollars in spending bills come from?

     




    Oh I see you want a line by line description of every dime this socialist has spent in the past 4 years.

    Google it.

    The problem with your president is that he doesn't accept responsibility or accountability for anything he does.

    He blames.

    It was him who killed Bin Laden but has nothing to do with benghazi, it was the intelligence.

    Now the republican are taking the country over the cliff.

    I'm ready for it. Don't cave.

    He has no mandate, he won by 3 percent.

    The Republicans captured the house 234-200

    The Dems have the Senate 55-45

    The republicans have 30 governors.

    Do the math who has the mandate from the last election?
