    I will post now what I tried to post this morning……….

    Hello Everyone !


    I was reading the foreign papers super early this morning.

    Early analysis: Obama’s 2014 budget numbers are based on bad math, phantom revenues, imagined spending cuts and a middle-class tax hike
    White House promises $1.8 trillion in deficit reduction, although similar previous claims have been debunked
    New method of measuring cost-of-living increases will lower benefit payouts and push middle-class earners into higher tax brackets
    Speaker Boehner’s spokesperson: ‘Any deficit reduction will come exclusively from tax hikes’

    Obama’s Budget Raises Taxes By $1 Trillion, Almost Double Previous Estimates…

    Administration’s formula depends on cost savings from Obamacare, which may be more costly to implement than previously thought

    The budget will hit congressional offices less than 24 hours after the government’s top watchdog agency declared that nearly $100 billion was wasted last year in duplicative and overlapping programs stretching into every corner of the Washington bureaucracy.

    FactCheck.org, a program of the University of Pennsylvania’s Annenberg Policy Center, reported in February that Obama’s total sum included about $600 billion, however, in new taxes – not spending reductions. It also included $500 billion in reductions of the amount the federal government planned to pay in future interest on its debts.

    Only about $1.4 trillion consisted of actual spending cuts – or at least what Washington wonks call spending cuts

    | The $1.4 trillion in cuts were merely reductions in those planned rates of spending increases.

    The larger problem for the White House is that Obama’s promise of $580 billion in new tax revenues over ten years isn’t nearly large enough to cover the spending bloat that Washington insiders continue to acknowledge as a crippling force.

    The public debt now stands at roughly $17 trillion, up $6 trillion from the debt when Obama took office in 2009. Even if the federal government takes ten years to rack up its next $6 trillion in accumulated deficits, the new taxes would contain less than 10 percent of the damage.

    Obama budget replaces sequester

    H.B. , You called it.

  • Lance

    Spot on Trent.

  • Ratboy

    Obama Budget
    More taxes to the wealthy = more class warfare
    Enact a Buffett Rule: Last year, Obama proposed the “Buffett Rule” as a guiding principle for tax reform.

    The idea: to make sure that people earning more than $1 million paid their “fair share” of federal tax

    And just HOW?? What “other measures” where will the money come from, the Money fairy??
    The plan calls for greater spending on infrastructure, early childhood education and nondefense research. Those investments would be paid for by other measures so that they don’t add to deficits, Obama said.

  • Coffee Steve

    I was beginning to think North Korea Cyber attacked this great web site :-)


    Yep, it hurt but those Lady Cards did good this year :-)


  • Coffee Steve

    Obama budget replaces sequester

    H.B. , You called it.

    Yes HB did, and its even worse, even Rockefeller who helped design it nows says its going to be a disaster

  • Ratboy

    @ d.d.
    the budget is a waste of time and is dead on arrival anyway. You would have thought that being late by 2 months maybe JUST MAYBE he would have come up with something that would have a little chance. He is playin politics and it again is to vilify the R’s befor the 2014 elections. Obama HAS to have both majorities to build a legacy. Without that he will go down as as big or bigger failure than Jimmy Carter.

    Tony–if you had ANY education, you would know that the economic malaise is being cause by right wingers like you in the House who want to cut spending in a very fragile economy—which is disastrous. And the right wing doesn’t even want to close tax loop holes for millionaire yacht and private jet owners. Obama’s budget is a compromise but we will see if the right wing kooks want to compromise. The moderate GOP has continually castigated the uneducated right and there is going to most likely be a party shift or a party split……We are very fortunate to have a great intellect like Obama in the White House. Can you imagine?

  • d.d.

    Any one like McDonalds’ McRib Sandwich ?

    Ooof. What’s the meat made of?

    Pig innards and plenty of salt. Typically, “restructured meat product” includes pig bits like tripe, heart, and scalded stomach, says Whet Moser at Chicago Magazine . These parts are cooked and blended with salt and water to extract salt-soluble proteins, which act as a “glue” that helps bind the reshaped meat together.

    I’d rather have your ribs, Rats.

  • usa8888

    This just in: the right wing clowns at the NRA are being beaten by common sense AGAIN. The Chief Clown La Pierre wants no gun background checks for lunatics, criminals….Nobody….can you imagine, even though 92% of the American people support gun checks.

  • usa8888

    This just in: Cigarette tax proposed by Obama to increase hugely to put an end to smoking and tax payers funding stupidity and the associated health problems….you guess it–the right wing kooks are aginst this…..

  • dana

    The Buffet Rule should be Only for Warren Buffet, since in spite of what he says he and the IRS are always fighting to get his money….

  • usa8888

    We will take names of the right wing kook senators who vote against the sensible gun checks and vote them out of office…they can’t hide behind a filibuster..
