Harry Reid, the US Senate majority leader, added: “This can’t be all cuts, there has to be a balance.” We have to screw someone!
Facing a possible revolt from within Democratic ranks, White House officials immediately dismissed the notion that the president would strike any agreement with Republicans to implement significant spending cuts – including reform of treasured government programmes such as Medicare and Social Security – without garnering any new revenue in return (aka TAX INCREASES). They also invited Democratic leaders back to the White House for a second straight day of talks in an effort to shore up their support in the negotiations.
Democrats are still expected to back whatever deal President Barack Obama strikes with congressional Republicans, but Thursday’s discontent highlighted the delicate balancing act facing White House officials as they go back-and-forth between the parties in search of a compromise.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, “compromise” to a Liberal means do exactly as I say, and only what I say, and shut and sit down you idiot!
Mind you, on Dec 6th, 2010 Obama said raising Taxes in a recession was a bad idea. But that was a politically calculated move of the moment. Now 7 months later he has to forget he ever said and the media will be glad to oblige. Also, he ardent supporters will have forgotten it also. And if you remind the they will blow it off because they are of the moment only. What do we want now is all that matters.
Dec 6,2010 Whitehouse.gov: Make no mistake: Allowing taxes to go up on all Americans would have raised taxes by $3,000 for a typical American family. And that could cost our economy well over a million jobs.
But now IF WE DON’T RAISE TAXES Armageddon is upon us!!! Run For the Hills!!!
Obama Now, in this moment (trying to appear to be a centrist instead of the left wing ideologue because he’s running for re-coronation):
“Regardless of what you feel about the particular policies — some of you may have supported the wars or opposed the wars; some of you may have agreed with the Recovery Act; some of you may be opposed — regardless of your views on these various actions that were taken, the fact is they all cost money,” he said. “And the result is that there’s simply too much debt on America’s credit card.”
He added, “Neither party (Just the Republicans!) is blameless for the decisions that led to this problem, but both parties have a responsibility to solve it.”
But when the Republican propose, the Democrats dispose. So again, it comes down to kiss the Democrats ass or else. Now that’s a compromise!! 😦
“The one thing we can’t do — cannot do — is decide that we are not going to pay the bills the previous congresses have already racked up,”
But we can threatened and scare seniors with false claims of not paying their bills to stoke up the class warfare and fearmongering.
If you take in $200 billion a month and Social Security cost $50 billion the only reason you’d wouldn’t pay that first is if your try to extort and exploit people.
“We can’t just close our deficit with spending cuts alone, because if we take that route it means that seniors would have to pay a lot more for Medicare, or students would have to pay a lot more for student loans,” he said.
And what will cuts in these programs that have to be made to make any kind of deficit reduction even possible do to them?
Or if you do nothing and they crash and burn on their own in less than 10 years?!
You guessed it!
But don’t tell the President, he’s running for re-coronation so he doesn’t want to say it, even if it is the truth.
He’s trying to look “fair”. 😦
And we have the tried and true Democrat strategy of “Vote for me the other guy’s an asshole!”. The fact that I might be an even bigger asshole doesn’t enter into equation.
“If we only did it with cuts, if we did not get any revenue (TAX INCREASES!!) to help close this gap between how much money is coming in and how much money is going out (yeah just not spending too much isn’t enough meat for your base is it), then a lot of ordinary people would be hurt and the country as a whole would be hurt. And that doesn’t make any sense. It’s not fair.” (Oh there’s that word “fair”!!! ooh it makes me all tingly!)
And you morons keep spending more than you take in we ALL get hurt. But that’s not important right now… So says the Guy who was going to be the Great Uniter of the country and govern for all the people, not just Democrats. 😦
“fairness” and “compromise”. Bend over here comes the greatest enema of all time!
Adhering to the standard Democratic talking points, Time managing editor Rick Stengel told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer during the 6 p.m. EDT hour of The Situation Room that if tax rates go up in 2013, it’s “not a tax hike,” demanding that “this is something that Republicans have to get used to.”
On the CNN poll, one thing no one at CNN is mentioning, is that question #23: Do you want Cut, Cap and Balance? Sixty-six percent of the American people want it. Question #25: Do you want a balanced budget amendment? Seventy-four percent! This is CNN’s own poll and they’re not reporting it tonight. (MRC)
So bend over here it comes!!!!
