I applaud the idea, but it doesn’t go far enough. How about Congressmen get a pay cut proportional to the size of the deficit budgets they pass? So, this year they should receive a 40% pay cut
Congratulations to President Obama for passing a bill to spend more money and raise more taxes. That’s the leadership you voted for
It’s sad to see my home town descend into such disgrace. It wouldn’t be this bad if Republicans were in charge and were really as evil as Democrats are incompetent. Unemployed and not looking 47% 35% on foodstamps; 1000s of homes abandoned’. Population cut in half in 20 yrs
“Leaders” crying out for more dole
Meanwhile Democrat poster boy Warren Buffett is engaging in the completely legal tax avoidance behavior that is getting Google pilloried fpr prudent fisuciarily responble decisions about what to do with their money.
dare people act in such a way as to deny government every possible dollar? the nerve!
Obama’s re-election has been profitable for us in the trading room. Unfortunately, the market is suffering just like the nation, from the election. But you get the government you deserve. The market is taking into account that he has no record of actually being able to accomplish anything except fooling most of the people part of the time, long enough to get re-elected. Expecting him to be unable to do anything about the fiscal cliff, the repositioning overseas and into Treasuries has begun. The best we have to look forward to is listening to 4 years of what his legacy will be, and listening to that smug hack Biden position himself for 2016

I see liberal commentators like Cenk Uygur applauding the reduction of 280B from the proposed budget, as an end to corporate crony capitalism. As if that’s not going to have an effect on the price of food, which is a disproportionally higher percentage of the budgets for the poor than the rich.
Cut 280B from subsidies, and prices will rise about….280B. That works out to about 3K per person per year in the US. Families currently on the margin will then need assistance to make ends meet. The cost of assistance will be passed on to the middle class, who always pays
The response will naturally be to increase the funding for food stamps, and more firmly connect the people to an all powerful natioanl government that provides for all necessities. Who could trust local and state governments, or betterm families and churches to take care of their tribes. What an odd notion these days
