    Finally a move in the right direction. We have to break ourselves from the addiction of easy free money printed out of thin air. Yes the cuts will hurt, but not near as much had we waited until a total collapse of the economy, which is on its way soon if we do not make drastic changes in the size and scope of the federal government. Obama will be known as the president who “changed” everything, just not the “change” he wanted. WE ARE BROKE!

      Obama kept the change, he just changed the promise. I, for one, will be glad when Obama is gone. You cannot run a country without experience – and face it – Obama did not have any experience for the job. Just a smooth talker who had all who voted for him fooled. Obama certainly “changed” everything. For the worse – guess why we are in the worse economical state the country has ever been in? “We need Change” yeah, right.

      Thankfully we are almost out of Iraq and we are going to be leaving Afghanistan shortly…massively expensive wars from the prior regime. Too bad somebody had the bright idea that lower taxes while increasing spending was a sound fiscal plan. Do we remember the last president to deliver a balanced budget?

        Sidewinder:
        1) At least Bush was able to pass a budget – OBama and the clowns in the house and senate had 18 months to pass something and couldn’t get it done. They relied on suggestions from the republicans and continually shot them down. That is not how you rule.
        2. Let me remind you of the December package passed by Barack that extended the tax cuts while doing nothing for reducing spending. This guy has fought tooth and nail to avoid any spending cuts and has actually cost the country money by creating uncertainty in the financial markets with his “Health” Reform Bill and Dodd-Frank.
        3. Let’s also not forget OBama’s stimulus package of $787B that was largely unfunded…yeah that’s close to what the two wars cost. The wars cost $1.2T over an 7-8 year spread (per the Congressional Research Service Report). Obama’s stimulus package, which fell on it’s face, cost us 66% in 2 years. Good call.
        4. No president has delivered a balanced budget in close to 30 years. Anyone that says Clinton ran a surplus is a moron and didn’t look at the facts. Social Security under Clinton ran a surplus and under federal law the surplus money from SS must be given to the federal government. To be blunt: he robbed Peter to pay Paul.

    Where’s my reward for buying home and auto insurance? I want a rebate too, to offset my government subsidized premium. I think our whole Ag policy is a mess. We pay people not to farm through CRP. Talk about a place to save some money.

    Sidewinder, Comon man! you have to be kidding right? “Thankfully we are almost out of Iraq and we are going to be leaving Afghanistan shortly…massively expensive wars from the prior regime”

    Sidewinder, Are you stoned?

    Maybe you have not heard sidewinder but Bush and Cheney are out of office now. LOL…. get a grip dude, That drum has been beat to death.

    Funny how Obama leads by the WWBD method. What Would Bush Do.

    Iraq, – Still there, will be there for decades to come.
    Afganistan – Still there, will be there even longer.
    Bush Tax Cuts – Still there
    Gitmo trials – Still there
    Patriot Act – Still there
    War on Terror – Still there Libya.
    Obama just addressed the nation about cutting Medicare and Medicaid? LOL……. He keeps asking himeself WWBD!

    I have to hand it to him though, He didnt pick WWCD What would Clinton Do? LOL…….

    OBAMA – One Big A*s Mistake America! “CHANGE BACK”

    Liberals need to remember the following two quotes. From two of their so called leaders in the coming debates regarding raising the Debt ceiling. (The nations credit card limit)

    “Why is it right to increase our nation’s dependence on foreign creditors?” Reid said on March 16, 2006. “Democrats won’t be making an argument to support this legalization, which will weaken our country.
    Harry Ried, US Senator NV, 2006.

    “The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies.”
    Barrack Hussien Obama, US Senator IL, 2006.

    —————————————————————–
    These are prime examples of hypocritical politics at their worst. I do believe this is a sign of total lack of leadership, I think we can all agree our President is a spineless hypocrit.

    How can the Good Performance Refund be considered a budget cut when no farmers have ever gotten any money from this program. This GPR program was developed during the winter to the surprise of everyone in the industry. I think this is nothing but polical BS. We need true spending cuts.
