Whats wrong with cutting expenses first and imediately. They always promis to cut spending, but not real spending increases and thoses don't ever happen.

because Obama does not really want to cut them. Ever wonder how many government employees, Commissioners etc., we now really have. Obama was elected by the money poured in by the government and teachers unions and they just found a good way to 'use' the entitled and the blacks and Hispanics!

When you lose an election, you get frustrated. When you're sitting in a subpar 2 percent economy, and are faced with tax hikes rather than marginal rate reductions, you get even more frustrated. And when you're staring at $47 trillion in spending over the next 10 years, and $8.6 trillion in deficits, your frustration levels climb even higher.

These are among the frustrations that led a number of House Republicans to pull back from Speaker John Boehner's so-called Plan B. Nobody looked good on the Republican side when Thursday night's vote fell through. But you have to understand their frustrations....
