Great job GOP. Way to handle the mandate from the 2010 election. Keep working on your social engineering agenda through budget cuts rather than creating jobs and you will be out on the street after the 2012 elections.
I am far less concerned about a budget or the President's place of birth than I am about delays in fully truthful reporting of the nuclear crisis now mostly confined to Japan, such as the possibility and consequences of ingesting now-reported plutonium.
We all see the numbers being published about levels of exposure and the very unlikely risks to human health, but what about those of us who love sushi?
Also, what about plutonium and those of us who detest eating fish?
Why not more discussion of entombment or other options?
Face it: TEPCO is going to lose a little money on this deal, no matter how determined they are.
The debt is our number one threat....first cut whitehouse and congressial budget, then cut discretionary spending, then cut defense spending and get out of Iraq/Afghanistan/Libya, then cut social security and medicare/medicaid....then and only then will congress have the credibility to ask the country to pay higher taxes. If we make the painful cuts now, the country may be willing to let the tax cuts expire in a year and a half. If they can't even cut discretionary funding then no one believes that they are up to the challenge of fiscal discipline....No one wants to get taxed a dollar more if the government is going to spend a $1.50 more!
Democrats,and the President will at least think things out,before leaping. Republicans will "Ax" the middle class,elderly,education,healthcare,unemployed,in a New York Second" Don,t beleive it,stay tuned? My mood sucks.
