so you don't feel severely cutting medical benefits for the lower and middle class while reducing taxes on the rich is not class warfare? seriously? make no mistake the republicans are the one waging class warfare and they are going straight for middles class and lower peasants.

A government spending 1.667 times its revenue cannot survive for the long term. Nanny-staters are living for the now with no regard to future generations. Neither political party is looking at real solutions they are just buying votes from a gullible populace that thinks the government is too big to fail. The gate is swinging shut on the wild pigs.

to break your broken record, then drop the bush tax cuts ! we had a balanced budget when bush took office and the republicans claimed moving to a balanced budget too quickly would be bad for the economy and then cut taxes and implemented medicare prescription program which was unfunded and just designed to move more money into big pharma, roll those two things back and end the wars and we can be pretty close to a balanced budget without having to leave our seniors (and eventually ourselves) without real health insurance in our later years

Balancing the budget is just the first step, the second step is the national debt which may already be beyond payback as it would require about a third of the revenue in debt payment each year (for over 50 years).

republicans dact like increasing taxes or even removing tax breaks or loopholes is "not serious" in a discussion about debt, so instead of paying more towards credit card debt their solution is just buy less and pay the same (or less), what financial adviser would advise that?

White House: 'Significant' deal on debt possible - Yahoo! Finance

the republicans are playing an incredibly dangerous game of chicken with the economy and trying to tear the economy down to win in 2012. If the republicans get their way some rich will win but the world will lose from the fallout.

the republicans have not worried about a balanced budget for decades ( at least) why reduce our debt now while recovering from the biggest recession we have been in for quite a while? they want to destroy the economy to win to spread their agenda.
