More partisan bullsh*t. These clowns don't care about the citizen. If they did, something would have been worked out months ago...
http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-503544_1...html?tag=stackThe Senate's top Republican said Tuesday that he did not see a way for Republicans and Democrats to come to agreement on meaningful deficit reduction as long as President Obama remains in office.
"After years of discussions and months of negotiations, I have little question that as long as this president is in the Oval Office, a real solution is probably unattainable," Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell said in remarks on the Senate floor.
The remarks come as negotiations between Republicans and Democrats intensify on long-term deficit reduction ahead of a looming deadline on how much the United States can legally borrow.
Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and many economists have warned of economic catastrophe if the $14.3 trillion debt ceiling is not raised before August 2.
And lawmakers from both parties want to use the threat of that deadline to work out a broader package on long-term deficit reduction. Republicans are looking to cut trillions of dollars in federal spending, while Democrats are pushing for a more "balanced approach," which would include both spending cuts and higher revenue to the government.
mcconnell is right
wrong president at the wrong time
GOP is not raising taxes to pay for more unsustainable government. it's time to cut the federal budget.
if bush proposed new taxes in 2013 as a condition to reduce the debt, would you think it was a good idea
Need I remind people that the sole reason Americans put the Pubs back in charge in the House...and darn near the Senate, was to stop Obama from implementing his policies with a rubber stamp from a Dem Congress. So these things are as I would expect from that. Not that I agree with all the bickering, but it is a fight of ideologies that is going on here.
Players come and go, but I will always be a Miami Dolphins Fan first and foremost.
Well Mickey the current picks from the GOP candidates will continue the deficits as well. Except one. It's amazing to me to see these 2 parties all come up with crappy ideas. None of them have a solution. We're screwed. Might as well get drunk.
