“Want to fix the budget...simple raise taxes on the rich...50% no loop holes, and corporations must pay their taxes if they want to do business here...no off shoring...no games...the problem with the budget is no income and a unnatural need for wars we cannot pay for...take out the war machine and make everyone pay their taxes (everyone) and this place is Valhalla ...then S can the Federal Reserve, get out of the empire building business, and there you go...”

“Yep, that will do it. Probably run the government for 30 days until they figure out another way to blow the money. A new program called "Obamacar" where everyone at the poverty level gets a new car from the government. It will create a lot of autoworker jobs......in China, Korea and Japan.”

“Always the same mantra. Make someone else pay for your indolence! The rich already pay most of the taxes. Top marginal rates over 50% now. Even if you raised that to 100% we'd still have a deficit.

Why don't you pay your fair share? I bet you pay no where near 50%. And please don't whine that 50% is unreal, because that is what I and most I know pay.”

“....Cruz had no spark of "sense"... he's just avoiding having to stand in the Senate, as he had promised, and filibuster for 18 hours without food water or bathroom break...

He does not have the balls to do what Wendy Davis (with a bad back) did...

So Cruz carefully planned this DUMP on the Boehner & House of Representatives.
But he didn't think it through and now the furious House plans to give it right back to him.
So Cruz has a sudden thunderbolt moment..."seeing the light" to avoid having to live up to his threats to filibuster... (waaay too much work and plus would make him look like a COMPLETE FOOL)

So America, this is how our hard earned tax dollars are wasted in Washington...

Let's get rid of these GOP CLOWNS!”

You do realize that 99% of firearm owners will never pull the trigger in anger or for protection, only to shoot targets. Just like 99% of film makers will never make a film that is blamed for an embassy attack and 99% of cartoonists will never draw a cartoon that is blamed for murders because they offend a religion. No, i guess you don't.”
