Thread: Sequester 2013!

So let's see here. The Democrat plans is:
A) Protect funding for people who have no job
B) Cut funding that creates more unemployed people
C) Raise taxes on the people that haven't lost their jobs
Could there be a more moronic bunch of people? I find it hard to believe that average Democrats are not ashamed that they cast their vote for a bunch of mindless dimwits like we have in the White House and in control of the Senate.

We could go the Republican route. No entitlements at all with all the money going to pay for corporate tax cuts and corporate welfare.
Then everyone who isn't a wealthy business owner just has to sit back and wait for the wealthy to trickle it down and then we'll all be taking golden showers!

That isn't the Republican route.
In Feb of last year the Republicans proposed a plan to reduce government employee numbers that would result in budget reduction. The Dems rejected it because it didn't include tax increases.
Republicans in Congress passed the Sequester Replacement Reconciliation Act which sought to eliminate tax fraud, stop government bailouts and slush funds, control unchecked spending, restrain bureaucratic spending and eliminate redundant spending. Dems defeated it. http://budget.house.gov/reconciliation/
The simple reality is that Senate Dems will vote against anything that doesn't call for tax increases. The fact is that Obama blatantly lied in 2008 when he said he would not raise taxes on Americans making under $250k and he and his cronies are blackmailing America in to tax increases right now. Everything he has done, from Obamacare to this sequester is all about the desire to raise taxes on the working class and ensure more and more entitlements for the non-working.

Really? I'm pretty sure I just put forth Romney's platform minus vague references to closing loopholes and math that only works in Paul Ryan's head.

Republicans proposed two plans, one to reduce government personnel and one to reduce government waste. Both were shot down by Dems. Dems want one thing, higher taxes. Nothing less will do.

It was the Republican Presidential nominee and it's what he said he would have done, so obviously you think it was the better option.
It's totally relevant.
