    Breaking News

    House GOP members agree to drop their hard line stance on the debt ceiling and extend the debt limit another 3 months.  This agreement came at a GOP retreat focused on fixing their damaged brand. Defininitely better choice then tanking the global economy. Good for them!

    That is good news yet..

     

    HOW MANY MORE TIMES CAN WE KICK THE CAN DOWN THE ROAD.

    I HOPE THIS IS ABOUT THE COUNTRY AND NOT THEIR BRAND.

    WE HAVE A SPENDING PROBLEM.




    It is not kicking the can down the road. GOP already agreed to this spending. They have obligation to not default on it. Listen - the Congress is responsible for spending and appropriating. They need to get their own house in order and come to bi partisan agreement instead of bickering with Obama.

    Actually, we have a revenue problem AND a spending problem, but thanks for seeing only half of the picture.......I hope your eye-patch comes off soon.

    Revenue as % of GDP has been in the 15% range the last four years, as opposed to being in the 18 - 20 % range for about 70 straight years before that.

    Thats one reason Kookie.  The revenue collapse is also due to:

    1. low taxes on the rich, particularly on dividends and capital gains

    2. low taxes on corporations due to loophole gifts in the tax code

    3. The feudal wages paid to a majority of Americans who make so little money that they don't even qualify for income tax payments.

    Smart move by the GOP - Krauthammer wrote an editorial suggesting this exact move yesterday.  Was he at the retreat?

    The republicans had no problem with "kicking the can down the road" while W was in office. But now they just can't do it. Who was it that said deficits didn't matter? Wasn't that Darth Vader Cheney while he was VP?

    Breaking news, or breaking wind?

    The credit card is tapped.  Did you not read what the GAO said yesterday about this?

    http://www.gao.gov/press/financial_report_2013jan17.htm

    This is not a left/right thing, it is warning from government itself that the spending path we are on is unsustainable and counterproductive. We ALL need to heed this warning, or the dollar will collapse and your public pension just like my retirement accounts will be nearly worthless.
