    Just where have they made the cuts?????????? Even they don't know.

    Where do the $32 billion in cuts come from?
    The $32 billion in cuts will come from non-defense spending. House Republicans are quick to tell you that in the two years of the Obama administration, non-security spending has gone up 24%. When pressed for where exactly the cuts would be made, Republican Budget Committee staffers punted and said those decisions would be made by the House Appropriations Committee, the committee that ultimately allocates where the nation's treasure is spent.
    When asked where might the Appropriations Committee look to find savings, House Republican Budget Committee staffers were quick to say that under the Obama administration, the Environmental Protection Agency has seen its budget triple, and Republicans would "examine" that agency.

    Not when the campaign promise is 100 billion. That's the problem with all politicians over promise and under deliver. The press has some culpability in this too. How about they concern themselves more about the issues and demand answers that are forthright and germaine to the conversation, instead of ingratiate themselves so they can write a book about them and make all sorts of money.

    At least they are talking about cutting . The recovery is fragile at best, the wrong message could slow things down & guess who would receive the blame???????

    But us moderates will be watching them closely, future donations depend on their performance. I only made 1 donation this last cycle, to a centist D that I know personally. It won't happen again, during the campaign he veered so far left that I didn't recognize his stuff. I usually donate to several campaigns.

    You have a nice day, Roger, your jokes are funny, your political views are pathetic .

    Just because my political views are not the views of the far right wingers here do not make my political views pathetic. Other than Obamacare, how many times have you or any other rightie here have seen me stick up for Obama???????????? There needed to be a health care reform years ago. The Republicans have not produced one thought on health care other than to repeal what has been suggested. The only thing Bush contributed to this Country was 2 wars, a tax cut that we could not afford during war time, a recession and taking us from a balanced budget to trillions in debt.

    He kept your sorry arse from getting attacked again for 7 years. Which, by the way is his number one job. If he had a mindset like most libs, you might be on your knees facing Mecca 5 times a day before you know it. (once again...all your responses come back to President Bush)
