House Republicans Roll Out Alternative Budget
Q: http://www.cnn.com/2009/POLITICS/04/01/gop.budget/ All I can say is thank God the GOP is no longer in control of congress. Is that really the best they can do? Repeal all spending of all kinds for years to come and of course cut taxes.
A: you don't start negotiations with the final compromise, any politician from either side knows that. settle down already The problem is the republicans should have done this sh!t when they were IN power. Now it's too little, too late. Unless a miracle happens in the midterms next year to being some balance back, this problem will become the second Great Depression. The bailouts and Obama's budget aren't the nail in the American coffin, it's a welding stick. Actually, the budget does not have any numbers due to a world shortage of numbers. Seems they used up all the worlds supply of numbers in the bailouts. It is effectively a joke. Since they know it can't be passed they've taken this opportunity to present something totally ideological so when it's election time, they can say "well look at the fine responsible budget we proposed" Nevermind if it got passed we'd all be on our way to the soup line, it doesn't matter because it's not going to get passed so we'll ever know. It's easy to stand behind something that will never happen... there's nothing to risk. I assure you if the repubs were in power we would be seeing some kind of stimulus... and a much more realistic budget. This is all political posturing. Yet another partisan hack... Yeah, I am conservative, but not republican necessarily. It is hard to be a part of a class of people with absolutely no representation in Washington. You can say March was the best month, and I hope you made a killing. You'd better while you can. I'm not sure how we will fund this "recovery" of yours, though. How will you keep buying stocks when your dollar is worthless, taxes are high, and you're unemployed? Look, I know it's easier to be a democrat or republican and spout partisan BS. Had you comprehended my post, you'd realize I was actually criticizing republicans. Ask around about how well your "recovery" is going. Oh, and as for March being the best month on Wall Street in a long time - it's not sustainable. We're throwing money at the banking problem like a monkey throws poo. Estimates of the cost of your "recovery" are roughly 1 year's worth of GDP. So take your salary and your companies earnings and go ahead and send them to President Obama or Tim Tax Cheat Geithner. They're coming to get it anyways.
