The real scandal is the tax code. What we have now is a horrible piece of crap. Of course, Obama and the Democrats love it because it allows them to dole out favors to special interest groups. I am a fan of the flat tax. That would solve the problems and it would be a huge boost to the economy. I am okay with a national sales tax, but I have some huge concerns about it (and I have never seen those concerns addressed). But the current tax code is terrible, and that is no accident.

tax dollars at “work.” Nice to see all the belt-tightening, eh?
Nice “work,” if you can get it…
Tell me again, just WHAT official business was Biden on? Disgusting.
I hope it happens. There just seems to be no other way to get this President to stop his explosive spending.
But it’s not a huge deal, anyway. The sequester constitute 1 to 2% of the total budget. Let’s say that you make $85,000 a year. Next year, your pay is cut by 1%. That is a total of $850. Now, you are not going to like that. To me, that is a significant amount of money. But if you lost that, you probably would not go out and turn your cell phones in. You probably would not need to economize by turning off cable and eating only dry beans. Heck, you probably wouldn’t notice a difference at all. 10% you would notice; 1%, probably not.
So notwithstanding the hyperbolic and rather hysterical rantings of the President, this sequester would not be a big problem. It would be far better for the country for it to happen. I think a lot of us have already tightened our belt much more than 1%.
Don’t fall for Obama’s big ol’ nicotine tears. Don’t be duped yet again!
madness. Hey, YOU guy re-elected this idiot!
You made your bed, now you get to lie in it. It’s unfortunate that the rest of us have to share in the bad results of your stupidity. [shakes head]
to be learned by studying history. Our current leaders seem incapable of learning those lessons. We all get to share in the bad results of their pig-headedness.
Some pretty important stuff is coming up and I’m wondering if he’s up to it.
Like most narcissists (and I’ve known a whole lot of them), he just can’t see things from the other side. It’s a personality pathology. There are good reasons to criticize Bush, but at least he wasn’t personality disordered…
War on the Young. I wish I could say they didn’t deserve it. There may well be individuals who don’t deserve it, but as a whole, the young do deserve it. Still, this is immoral. Whether the young deserve it or not, this is immoral.
