or maybe "job losses and things falling apart that quickly sort of expose how horribly" underfunded most government programs (that don't involve jailing minorities or blowing up the middle east) already are

see: http://en.wikipedia....tarve_the_beast

How much more than 3.8 trillion dollars annually is needed to keep programs from being underfunded?

That's like asking:

How much more than 250 a month is needed to make your car payment?

The answer is: However much the car actually costs per month. The "250" is just a number I pulled out of thin air.

How much of your children's future is worth putting on their credit card for this "car" that they'll likely never drive?

You just completely changed the subject.

But the answer is:

A strong economy creates jobs and revenue.

All efforts should be made to create a strong economy.

In bad economic times, government spending plays an important part in shallowing the bottom.

Cutting government spending when it is needed most actually makes it harder to get back to the better times.

We are mostly over that phase now, but the damage done by the Republicans in demanding one sided cuts and a focus on the debt, for the sole purpose of "defeating Obama" when a focus on the actual economy should have been front and center, has had it's intended effect on the economy, just not on Obama. Everyone lost on their bet.

I see Ryan trotted out the same old crap today. No Pentagon cuts, more cuts for the rich, and more screwing the regular people. Someone forgot to tell him people hated his ideas before, and people will hate them more now.

As far as "my kids" and "my credit card" goes, WWII was paid off as government spending increased because the economy kept getting stronger and stronger, and we had the highest tax rates on the rich in our history at that time. In fact it's those times that Republicans seem to want to return to but never mention how the economics worked. It's too simple about how this all works. All it takes is the ability to look at history.

Again, sure there are things we can cut and get away with, and Obama has been willing to listen to a lot of it. But "vouchers" for Medicare? That's like death panels without the panels. And that "my plan depends on repealing Obamacare" crap....for god sakes wake up, even Rick Scott knows its bullshit now, grow up.

As a Democrat, there is a perverse pleasure in seeing the Republicans continuously forced into a bad, shrinking corner built on the rhetoric they've locked into over the years, but realistically we need the Republicans to help curb the Dems excesses - unfortunately they are not able to do that because the Tea Party knuckleheads keep forcing them to come up with non starters on every issue out there which in turn digs their hole with voters deeper.

Of course Democrats are becoming the majority.

There are always more lazy and uneducated people in society than there are intelligent successes.

The whole democratic party philosophy is nothing more than buying votes.....tell people you are going to give them free poo (that need to be paid for by more successful people than they are) and they will vote for you.

It is that time of year for Obama to hunker down, put his numbers together no matter if it takes him several days and night to complete the job at hand.

No, not the budget

His March Madness bracket is due Thursday morning next week.

You vote republican because you believe they will give you free poo

Or why else would you vote for them. You clearly vote for your best interests but people be damned if they do the same as you. Leave your faux ivory tower in ballenslime to see the reality instead of being being spoon fed it by foxnews

Hypocrite
