House Speaker John #boehner on fiscal crisis: "This is not a game." Do you think Washington will make a deal before year-end to prevent the #fiscalcliff ? How are you preparing in case there is no deal?
How do you feel about the government touching your private retirement account known as your 401k in order to "pay down the deficit?" Not so good? Already feel like the government has stolen your retirement through Social Security? Well get ready because taxing the 401k is floating around as an idea while the fiscal cliff talks on Capitol Hill continue
Is so a game, Mr. Boehner. If it wasn't, we wouldn't have to keep raising the debt ceiling. In practical terms, the ceiling is looking pretty infinite. We also wouldn't have QE, which seems to be essentially making up money from nowhere.
I agree they all need to go! I vote out who is in; in ever election! I am done with Politics as some kind of secure job for these jokers in fancy suits and high dollar dresses! They think once they get in DC then the rest of us should bend to their will be Victims to their games! not anymore! Not me! I am going to do my part!
simple: once the budget is drafted and ratified by the House and Senate (preferrably in that order in keeping with the Constitution), isn't it true that it must be signed into law by the President? Therefore isn't it possible for him (or in the future, her) to veto, thus requiring a veto override if so wanted? That's why I place blame not only on the Presidents, but also the Congresscritters.
Wonderful and agreed. Again, don't tell the President, he might have to stop blaming the "last administration", and that would ruin his whole agenda. -- I did not create the toxicity, I'm merely an observer.
There you go, +Larry Speeb . Obamaphone, won't have to worry about the mortgage or putting gas in the car...many in the public seem to have a really poor concept of how that's supposed to work. It's too bad Amerca just decided in the majority to reelect the same clowns who are really responsible for this mess, possibly based on such disillusions.
I have always said that Democrats offer two things: sex without consequences and other people's money. I don't know how they built a major political party on these two things...oh wait, yes I do.
But seriously, I agree. It is time for something...we have built two very different nations within the United States, and I don't think we are so united anymore. And this is the biggest civics lesson of them all.
WHY is Military Pay, Medicare, SSN, the first . STOP ALL GOVT officials PAY FIRST before any cuts. President, Congress and Senaters. NO PAY for your benefits, health care, retirement, staff. ZERO . and pay Military/Mediccare and SSN seniors.
