    ya know, as I hear the Dem "progressives" talk about all "they" gave up, in this deal, and how that hurts the American people, I have to say, it is clear that the Dems think this country should be run on debt, and debt alone. They don't want to actually pay for anything they DO!

    They seem to only cater to those who have their hands out.........as some in this country constantly do, for free everything, that they do not earn.

    That's NOT the America I grew up in.......and I have been around a good while.

    They talk about growth in the Clinton years.......but I went through the Cinton years, and KNOW that was basically a time of little happening, and NOT growth. Sure the debt grew slower then, but there were NO challenges to be met, and the GOP controlled the Congress.

    It seems to me, that the Dems take a lot of credit for nothing......they take credit for massive debt increases, hand-outs, instead of a helping hand, and they NEVER are willing to pay their way!

    All of this is real crazy! Let us keep it real people, you get a black president, and all of these "deep cover" racists and Uncle Toms come out, talking about how they are trying to "protect" America. Please! The debt ceiling should have been raised clean without any attached legislation. Business as usual in Washington does have to change fiscally, and otherwise, but let us remember and put perspective on the situation and be real! Almost $11T of debt when Obama took office, and the majority of the spending since in actions trying to bring the country out of a recession and financial crisis, because of horrible policy, unfunded wars, an unregulated financial sector, and tax cuts and subsidies that cost billions. The president has no backbone with these punks and that has now reflected in this horrible deal that attacks those that should not have been the focus on these cuts. Hopefully this "committee" will do the right thing and address the overspending that's wasteful, and go after lost revenue before this country goes to the dogs!

    I personally think the democrats were sold out by Obama and palosi! The only thing the democrats got from this deal was that Obama wont have to deal with the republicans again before the 2012 elections! The republicans won all the way, they know he will never get re-elected so they will be able to forget this deal next November! Obama sold us out again!!!

    Blaming the President for spending $2 trillion in 2 years, while $850 billion of the expenditure went to (Bush Republican) era tax cut alone is share wickedness. Another $850 billion was spent on reviving the the economy from a double deep recession and the republitards can't deny that the money was expended wisely. The auto and finance industry was bailed out, a move that the republitards welcomed. So why hold the president hostage and say he spends too much when the expenditure is in favor of republitards? This is not just Satan Sandwich, it is politics of wickedness and share hatred.

    I can understand why those voted against it. It was a poor compromise that angered everyone. I would have liked to have seen some tax increase on the rich. They need to pay more because they have too many cuts and deductions already.
