AsburySkinsFan Posted December 2, 2011 Share Posted December 2, 2011 I think that would be the first step towards economic common sense, probably coupled with some initial pain as all change does, then things will mend since we would be spending in an intelligent fashion. I'll take it that by "things mending" you understand that over night balancing the budget would be nearly catastrophic. allow me to flip the question please...What do you think will happen if we see the same proportionate increases in spending for the next few years? In your heart of hearts, do you really feel this path is sustainable? Nope I don't, but I'm also smart enough to realize that those aren't the only two alternatives. ---------- Post added December-2nd-2011 at 12:35 PM ---------- As far as torpedoing the deal...all on the dems, they got exactly what they wanted in this. They never had any intention of coming to a deal. They wanted over 1 trillion in new taxes so they could keep spending. As far as Boehner, this is one of the few times I actually disagree. Let the cuts happen. But I think that this request is politics at work. Obama will refuse this and the GOP can blame Obama for gutting the military. Its all about positioning right now. Well, Mr. Speaker I didn't know you had an account on ES! Cool beans...hey nothing personal about all the nasty stuff I said about you...kai thnx bai.
