    The problem with a little more is that a little more is never enough. I don't want subsidies going to any group, not oil companies, farmers, or foreign countries or others. That being said we all should pay taxes at the same rate. I am not rich but they are not better me either. Quit looking at the grass on the other side of the fence. And please make spending cuts now not over the next x years.

    Ditto ! Make congress etc. take some cuts in pay..........of course that will never happen but I can dream. Local school sup. is getting a big salary boost when he shouldn't need it while the teachers and support staff get no raises.

    I wouldn't expect a socialist like NM Hugh to be anything but a class envyist. (that goes without saying for a typical New Yorker like Cotts)

    But even one of your own...no less a lib than the Oracle of Omaha, (although this is just a 'cut and paste' which Hugh despises) is quoted with one that even a conservative like me can appreciate.

    Warren Buffett, in a recent interview with CNBC, offered one of the best quotes heard in all this drama about the debt ceiling:



    "I could end the deficit in 5 minutes," he told Becky Quick. "You just pass a law that says, that anytime there is a deficit of more than 3% of GDP, all sitting members of Congress are ineligible for re-election."











    When the one you love becomes a memory, that memory becomes a treasure.

    I'd be happy if they got rid of all those refundable tax credits people with kids are getting. That is flat out socialism. If anything they should pay more since they are the ones using the dept of ed.

    But you don't believe that corporate welfare should be stopped? Do companies posting record profits really need the loopholes to write off billions?

    I shall resist your blandishments, sir. I chose to respect the request that was made of me to disregard you in all forms. Hugh in NM.

    And you and all that believe that it is just a spending problem are incredibly disillusioned or choose to live in a fantasy world where right wing talking points are treated as gospel.

    Take a look if you would at this chart and notice what item on it has had the biggest effect on the deficit. Looks to me that the largest item in the chart is the Bush tax cuts. Excluding revenue as a component of the deficit and something that needs attention is just not dealing with reality......Period

    Not to split hairs, but that is NOT a CBO graph. That's a graph the notoriously liberal Times fabricated with info twisted from the CBO and the liberal Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.

    If it is please enlighten me. Are you claiming the figures are wrong? Maybe some figures are exaggerated or there are some omission errors, you tell me.
    Just one other thing, is it your believe the Bush tax cuts had nothing to do with the current debt?
