Why can't Republicans just tell us what they want to cut?

    wait, isn't it on the President to say what he wants to cut, in exchange for "taxing the rich"?

    Democrats said what they wanted....and asked what the Republicans wanted....and you are somehow trying to say that it should be on the Democrats to come up with an idea of what the GOP may or may not want?

    Do you intentionally act this stupid?

    Democrats said they wanted to keep the tax hikes on the rich

    and in exchange, the Democrats are willing to ________________________________________?

    Hey, if the Republicans insist on calling government/social services "entitlements," then they should easily be able to indicate which of these "entitlements" they think should be cut.

    I'm sure Planned Parenthood will be on that list, along with care for the mentally ill who are shooting people in movie theaters and shopping centers and college campuses.

    That might make a good thread, too.....but aaaaaaaaaaaanyway, what about the question OP asked? Another question is not an answer.

    OP begs the question; if one side wants something in a negotiation, it is incumbant upon them to present a compromise. the spineless repubicans have already caved on wanting tax cuts, and signalled weakness in agreeing to tax "the rich", yet the "leader" of the country has not made any statement i am aware of as to what he is willing to compromise.

    oh, wait, this is the guy who says "i got elected, you do what i say."

    forgot about that bit.

    It really is incredibly straight-forward.

    cut government in half, across the board. that would be a good start. lay off 50% of all government employees, and declare all government unions illegal.

    I applaud you for posting what you really think, sociopathic as it is.....but on this point, I'm wondering: Just how much more should taxes be cut? And for whom. Like no taxes at all, for anyone? Anyway, more to the point, if we keep cutting taxes, how do we keep up our infrastructure, defense, government (are you an anarchist? I agree government is bloated, far too invasive, but I'd think we need some sort of governing?). And in all seriousness: what, do we do, with all those awful, lazy, Democrat voting "Entitlement" people who subsist on welfare, SSI, gubbermint cheeze, etc.? Be honest, what do you think will happen if all these "Entitlement Programs" were eliminated overnight, and how should we, as a nation, respond to it? I know I'm leaving out most of your points, but I don't THINK these are unreasonable questions, are they?

    Boner has been incredibly specific. Too bad Oblacky doesn't want to be serious about this. The American public can see who is intransigent here

    Like what? Maybe you can clear it all up. I have seen his speeches....and I see absolutely zero plans for actual cuts.

    Oh, lets cut a few million here...in that area? Brilliant
