"Democrats have no interest in addressing our massive deficit and out-of-control spending" Actually, they do. But unlike you, Derek Ideological Dogma peddler, they understand that a) spending is not "out of control" and b) the deficit was created MOSTLY by Bush tax cuts and are REDUCING under Obama and will reduce more if congress does NOTHING. Which is it you want to cut the deficit or you want economic growth? "Democrats are unwilling to take seriously the coming crush of entitlement spending." Again, Democrats understand the SS has not added ONE RED CENT to the deficit and CANNOT BY LAW. Medicare is a real problem and OBAMACARE is the first step to address it. I know you don't get it - you lack the requisite intellect. ~Cheers

Stop lying for once in your life, you Soros shill.

You know damn well that the deficit under your thug-in-charge has been a trillion dollars every year of this regime. You know damn well that your new law destroys Meidcare in order to pay for contraceptives for sluts like Sanda Fluke. You know damn well that the economy has cratered under this regime, which has been the intention because it provides more of an opportunity to seize the power that you crave. You are nothing but a punk who will burn your children and your parents so you can dance on their ashes. No one with any decency wants anything to do with you, punk.

w-smith - You are delusional.

1) Spending is out of control. The U.S. government has had the U.S. debt increase every single year since 1957. Soon S.S., Medicare, Medicaid, and interest on the debt will consume 100% of the U.S. budget.

2) S.S. added to the deficit last year as it paid out more than it took in. The phantom Trust Fund has no money in it. It is projected for the next 50 years to pay out more than it takes in.

3) Medicare has not been taken care of by Obama. Its unfunded liability is over $100 trillion. Cutting $700 billion out of Medicare and spending it on ObamaCare will not fix the Medicare problem. Doctors will start limiting the number of Medicare patients they will see thereby leaving seniors with no doctors to treat

A look at Obama's own budget projections shows the debt skyrocketing in the coming years but Obama's budget does not address the problem. Time for you to wake up to the Obama disaster.
We’ve all heard about the “fiscal cliff.” But what does it mean? The media won’t bother to explain it in any detail, and people aren’t looking it up on their own. So, a great many Americans think it’s a physical place, a vacation destination of some sort. I understand people are busy with their lives, but a majority of Americans just voted to re-elect President Obama, a man whose failed leadership created this harmonic convergence of economic mess that is the fiscal cliff. So I say, “To hell with it; let’s jump.”

President Obama is still in campaign mode, traveling...
