    I just want to know why Republicans can not go into any specifics whatsoever when they talk about closing loopholes and whatnot....I mean, I know why they don't...because they are too stupid to figure out such questions....but hearing them run around the question is always a good time.

    Why can't liberals come up with any sort of plan whatsoever to balance the budget? What comes after the 4% tax increase on the jet owners?

    Is the plan to just keep spending and see what happens?

    Who cares about the Republicans? What about Obama's "Balanced Approach." He's a man of his word, isn't he? Name, I'm gonna keep asking the question to each snarky worthless comment. Like your candidate said, we need a balanced approach. Why won't he put something forward?

    Increase revenues. Cut spending.

    Obama said about a million fucking times he wanted a balanced approach. Okay buddy, no more Bush...no more excuses. After 4 years it's time to step up to the plate.

    You wanted the job of leader....you got it. What will you specifically propose? After 4 years of campaigning the American people deserve an answer. Be a man...be a leader...and put something on the table. You can't be an empty suit forever.

    we're a future greece/europe....no way these fucken shitheads ever cut enough entitlements to even come close to balance.
    print more money & inflate the way out of this is the only remedy they know.....washington is a bunch of cunts. the tax increases are a drop in the bucket & these morons are arguing about bullshit. while you simpletons are snarking about how great your team is, both sides will be kicking that can, dumb cunts... & wtf is that media darling still campaigning for??? roll up your sleeves & get to fucking work you smug fuk.

    i would give my plan, but you don't care, right?

    also, it's silly to say spending is bad.
    ex: if you become the new president of a company, and the roof is leaking like a sieve, it's wise to spend whatever it takes to fix the roof, even if it puts you in more debt.
    though some would argue the news pres. should be fired because he's spending much more than the last president who only spent money on buckets and mops and labor on rain days, and replacing items that get water damage

    they are silly, if they don't specify on what.
    we should cut spending in some areas, but we should increase spending in other areas.

    Are you able to read? Have you seen the proposals from the last year including Estate/Gift Tax changes, etc....or do we not factor in actual tax changes to get more revenue to balance the budget?

    Sorry, I know how much Republicans hate facts

    if europe isnt teaching us a lesson right now, nothing will. we cant afford every popular gubment program like some of you think...of course they're popular, they're entitlements. do you have any idea how much we overspend in a budget year? we're up to a trillion annually.
    entitlements & defense have got to be cut alot, thats what we're talking about.

    increased taxes cant balance the budget btw, spending is the issue no matter what each bumbling fucking idiot team tells you. they want to waste time on the tax bullshit & avoid the spending issue because what are they?..... CAREER politicians & they want to continue their careers at the next election & beyond...

    Who the fuck has ever said that only increased taxes would balance the budget? Seriously, please....show me. We bring up tax increases....how that equates to being the ONLY way to balance the budget...is....huh?

    Of course we need to cut spending....but then again, you all won't touch defense spending...even defense spending that has ZERO, ZITCH, NADA to do with our nation's security.

    You all want loopholes to be cut....yet it has been shown time, time, time, time, and time again that closing every single loophole would do absolutely nothing to the deficit. Nothing. Zero.

    Oh, and your biggest donors benefit the MOST from the loopholes....so why do you think your party would close them?

    no. but we shouldn't spend a dime more than we bring in. cutting entitlements isa buzz word that means nothing. some should be cut, some should be raised.
    any politician who says "we need to cut spending" is bs. give us the list if you are seriuos.
    randomly cutting spending isn't wise either, just because its the popular thing.
    i wouldn't cut defense spending, i'd ramp it up. be in a war to win, or just bring them all home tomorrow and have a parade.
    i'd spent for a wall on the border.
    i'd spend to redo our whole infrastructure. it has to be done eventually anyways, why not do it now to create needed jobs.
    and i'd spend money to teach people how to fish, that will lower long term the "entitlement" programs you hate.
    though the first thing i would do is take away howards entitlements, by eliminating income tax and having a national sales tax.
    i know you liberals like the progressive tax system that penalizes success and favors anyone who can afford a lobbyist or $400 an hr cpa, but that's not best for the country.

    maybe he doesn't own a television, or he would know that every single republican candidate said that would not trade 90% spending cuts for 10% increase in taxes.
    they are real serious about balancing the budget :rolleye:

    who said randomly cutting? huge spending cuts are needed in entitlements & defense so this country can starting growing again & we dont head closer to greece which is riddled with gubment entitlements.
    you cunts can continue to argue for your respective teams posturing on doing nothing but running to the media & campaign for 4 more years.
    & racerx need to spend more money right now is baffling
