The sequester us 100% on Obana, no matter how much the Dens want to debt it.

Obana got tax increases last year with one caveat....the spending cuts were to come by a specific date., or a sequester would happen.

He tried to back out of the cuts, and the Republicans called him on it.

He believed that he could make a promise and then have the Republuxans back down when he decided to void said promise.

Guy is a liar, a cheat, and a buffoon.

Wanna post some citations for that, or are your research skills as crappy as your spelling?

Thats real interesting Mad, as I can remember him offering spending cuts and tax increases. I do however, know that Republicans said no the combination of cuts and new revenue, which every economist not associated with Paul Ryans infantile dreams agrees are needed.

I was posting on an iPhone....so who gives two shits about spelling on an internet message board.

So, you can just keep your opinion and your 85 IQ to yourself.

The cuts that Obama has ever proposed are not even enough to be a drop in the bucket. This country has a MASSIVE spending issue.

His proposal is like having to put $5,000 per month on a credit card because you cannot afford your bills.....but offering to stop buying a newspaper on Mondays. The amount does not even equal the other increases that he has proposed.

Again....we have a MASSIVE spending issue. Not a revenue issue.

Neat! I'm posting from a razr.

Very few people. I just figured I'd give you an out when you realized you couldn't back up the idiotic claims you made... You're welcome.

So, you can just keep your opinion and your 85 IQ to yourself.

Oh my IQ is quite a bit higher than 85. Otherwise I wouldn't know the difference between opinion ( this is all Obama's fault!) & fact ( you didn't back up your argument).

It is really both. Deficit spending is not the worst thing and even Republicans have finally admitted that we don't have an immediate debt crisis. And it is generally easier and better for the economy to raise revenue and taxes than it is to cut spending. Which is why real spending cuts are so hard and impossible to get done.

The minor spending cuts that he proposed are not even close to being meaningful....you know and I know it.

I agree with you that it is a lot easier to raise taxes than to cut spending....expecially when it comes to the Dems. Piss off 5-10% of the population with tax increases to increase the entitlement spending that now goes into the pockets of nearly 50% of the American population.

But, that does not make it the right solution.

Our spending is out of control....and getting worse. Cuts should be made across the board....which is what the sequester is forcing.

So... you like the sequester, and you give Obama 100% of the responsibility for it.

Are you an Obama supporter now?

What exactly makes anyone think that a raise in taxes will be accompanied by a cut in spending? Has a cut in federal spending actually happened in the past century?

Fwiw, I do believe that we should raise taxes, at least until the budget is balanced or close to it. But imo, tax increases should be across the board. Everyone should pay something.

And we should also cut spending across the board, even in sacred areas like medicare, medicaid, and defense.
