On my phone and can't link it but the White House is on twitter claiming $1Trillion in Gov't spending cuts last year


So did tex revenues fall by $1T last year? how can spending go down by ~25% but deficit remain the same?

re: House Republicans make 2.2 Trillion Counter Offer on "Fiscal Cliff"


it doesn't go down as that is just a gimmick claiming credit for savings from the Afghan drawdown. They're double dipping with that claim

Nice to hear of what sounds like it could be a reasonable counter-offer.


Would like to see more details on the offer.

2.2T is a reasonable counter offer, assuming it was 2.2T a year. Otherwise we are just pissing in the wind.

How the hell can the draw down of troops be calculated in a spending reduction negotiation if that was gonna happen anyway? If Iran starts slinging missiles at Israel tomorrow, will our response be considered a spending increase?

Just heard on TV that they propose raising age of medicare qualifying to 67. That is not going to go over well at all especially since corp are laying off older workers and they are losing their health insurance.

This will be interesting. Everyone that can add and substract knows that raising taxes on those that make above $250K, as proposed by Obama, will only be a drop in the bucket of what is needed to pay down debt. To that end, if it is not earmarked to pay off debt, one can only assume not a penny will be used as such.


At the end of the day, reluctantly give Obama the upper bracket tax increase and take away his crutch. This latest plan with that puts Obama in a corner, exposed.

deficit was cut last year. Quite a bit in fact. On paper it was 1.1T in deficit, much less than the 1.6 the year before. But I think revenues were a little weak, so it was 1.2 or 1.3T.

Technically yes. Obama wants the sheep that say Obaama too think he is for the middle class while he raises taxes,disses the Bush tax cuts and raises the debt ceiling. You really can't get any lower in lying than Obama.
