Barney Frank blames military… –
I hate to agree with this slobbering curmudgeon but he’s right. Along with all of the entitlement spending, our troops should be pulled back from countries such as Germany and Japan who have existed nicely over the years while the US protected their interests. What Barney fails to acknowledge is that this fraction of our spending needs to be matched up with the lion share spending that is given away to the welfare state. That also needs to be scaled back. Sounds like an area that compromise would be a great play.
Democrats seek to pin credit downgrade on tea party
Partisan gridlock is real culprit, S&P says
All you really need to see is the headlines and you can predict the rest. Now we are to believe that a small renegade band of misfits, that began 3 years ago mind you, is now responsible for the trillions of dollars of debt that clowns like John Kerry have racked up over his 27 years career. This is panic and complete ignorance of history.
Also comical is the “exact phrasing” that all this lemmings use. Almost like they’re being fed these lines of crap. Original thought has never been a strength of the common liberal and here it’s on full display.
How boring and utterly predictable. Taking a page right out of Rules for Radicals, one slobbering liberal after another has now paraded this theme over the past couple of days. Most notably, our retarded vice president, Joey B. And I say retarded not to insult the mentally challenged, but to include him in that group. I don’t know who you morons use to test the words you use to see how they will play out, but you’re barking up the wrong tree. One day, these words will come back to haunt you and I hope for your sake, it only costs you your jobs.
Cuts don’t take effect until 2014. Future congress’s do not need to adhere to the budgets passed by previous congress’s. That’s all you need to know. Worthless banter over nothing. Thanks for wasting our time.

I hope everyone is bent over for the US government to screw us one more time. First off, where is this bill, can we see it?? Secondly, great job, you managed $200 billion per year of cuts with a $1.6 trillion annual deficit. Way to go. By my count, we will burn through this money conveniently just after the elections next year. Interesting timing…
Don’t get me wrong, it’s a hell of a lot of money. But when discussing cuts into a 1.6 trillion dollar deficit, what is 1 trillion over 10 or 12 years? Is it really enough that you are looking to cut 100 billion per year? shouldn’t we be looking at cutting this 1 trillion in like, one year? Not to say that cuts are cuts, but the democrats act as though this is too much and it is merely a drop in the bucket compared to their annual spending.
I guess I shouldn’t expect much from a talking head liberal. I sure hope NJ wakes up the next time this guy is up for reelection as he is worthless in Washington. Check out his mealy-mouth response to my letter that addresses none of my questions. I guess they don’t have a canned response to the tough questions.
you for contacting me to express your concerns with our nation’s current budget
deficit. I appreciate hearing from you on this critical issue and having the
opportunity to respond.
share your desire to see our country headed down a more sustainable path, and I
am committed to making tough choices that
will rein in costs while upholding our country’s priorities and safeguarding our
future prosperity. Our
deficit will only be reduced by employing a balanced approach to spending
cuts; reforming tax policies, such as closing corporate tax
breaks that allow oil companies to avoid paying billions of dollars in
and controlling health care costs.
appreciate your advocacy on this issue and will keep your views in mind as I
examine the proposals put forth. As your federal representative, I take very
seriously my responsibility to work with colleagues on both sides of the aisle
toward a solution that will not exacerbate our short-term problems, but still enact substantial reforms
to our budgetary practices for the long-run. You can be assured that I support
sound fiscal policy that invests in our future and foments a financially secure
future for our nation’s children.
Again, thank you for
reaching out to me. Please do not hesitate to contact me if I may be of further
assistance. I invite you to visit my website (http://menendez.senate.gov) to learn more about how I am standing up for New Jersey
families in the United States Senate.
I am embarrassed to be represented by the deplorable Bob Menendez, but he is the consummate welfare senator. Below is a letter I sent him regarding his inaction in the Senate:
Sir, I know you have voted today in lockstep with your party leader and your ideology, but what have you or any of your cohorts offered to solve the situation? All I hear from the Senate democrats is raise taxes, raise taxes. Is this your only solution? And please don’t bore me with the talking point memos on how the cut, cap and balance plan destroyed this or that. What do you offer in return? Did your group not mark up and return a bill when it came to Obamacare? And did you not send that back to the house to be voted on? Why now are you and your group completely inept when it comes to possible solutions? Where is your plan to fix the debt issue? Do you not see the outrageous spending of our federal government as a run away problem? Do you ever feel like you are doing justice to those of us who will have to live with and pay for your irresponsibility when it came to being good stewards of our money? I don’t want to hear about Bush or any other excuses. You and the other senator from New Jersey continue to be a poor representative of the hard working people of New Jersey.
