Fiscal Cliff Deal: $1 In Spending Cuts
For Every $41 In Tax Increases

Breitbart, by Matthew Boyle

Original Article

Posted By:WhamDBambam, 1/1/2013 10:40:42 AM

According to the Congressional Budget Office, the last-minute fiscal cliff deal reached by congressional leaders and President Barack Obama cuts only $15 billion in spending while increasing tax revenues by $620 billion—a 41:1 ratio of tax increases to spending cuts. When Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush increased taxes in return for spending cuts—cuts that never ultimately came—they did so at ratios of 3:1 and 2:1.

Wow, just a complete cave! Tell me our elected "Republican" representatives all don´t wear panties. Once again, how come no sports team has ever called itself the "Fighting Republicans?"

Time to check my Senators and Representative.

I´d rather have the cliff.

I disagree....
The time to "check" your comgresspeople are during elections when they should be held accountable for action, inaction or just plain old treason. We´re stuck with these animals now for at least the next 2 years, but I fear much longer unless a new third party rises.

There is no way that revenue will increase by $620 billion. The economy will continue to stagnate at best and more likely go into depression, so the predicted revenue will not materialize (it never does), so since spending will continue, the debt will deepen and our future generations will not thank us-- nor should they.

#3 - There was a chance that my Senator, Wicker, might have voted against it. I had to check.

Now for my Rep, Palazzo. My last Rep, Taylor (D), would have voted against it without a blink. He voted to impeach the Horned One after all.

Mitch McConnell NEEDS TO GO. Where´s the Kentucky Tea Party. Find someone that can replace this total disappointment. He can not communicate with the public, he sold out the republican party and he´s from the old era (tax and spend). Be sure that you vote someone in that can beat one of the washed up Judds. I hear she may be running. Just get rid of Mitch, he´s up for re-election in 2014.

By the way, Sen Pat Toomey is a total disappointment for voting for this trash. We in Pennsylvania need to start looking for someone to take his place. Toomey is up for re-election in 2016.

The Pubbies continue their unbroken string - - of voting for tax increases to finance an ever-growing welfare state.

And some of us were foolish enough to believe that the era of big government was over. God bless the Pubbies - - thanks to them the welfare state will live forever!

The lack of single family homebuilding could be the biggest reason the economy isn´t recovering. Builders can´t get the loans to start projects. On top of that,there´s government demands that certain number of new home developments must include low income housing which would kill sales of the other homes.

Obama is also dead set against rural sprawl because it gives decent people an escape hatch from crime areas and lousy schools. He´s also trying to create a false housing shortage to bring home values back up.Filling houses with recycled sub prime type borrowers sets the government up to eat more losses,thus we´re seeing hints about the FHA needing a bailout and does nothing to increase home values. In fact airdropping urban subprimers into decent neighborhoods kills values going up.

They´re also starting to charge homebuilders with eco-impact fees and sprinkler systems which add to the cost of the house that somebody has to eat.

I HAVE HAD IT with just about everyone in DC. They are spending us into total destruction ON OUR BACKS. And running off the successful. STOP it NOW!

If BUSH´S policies were so bad WHY DO THEY WANT TO KEEP HIS TAX CUTS?? For the record his economy was fantastic. Frank and Dodd and b. Clinton´s policies are what mostly hurt us, IMHO and as I read her book, in the opinion of Gretchen Morgensen, NEW YORK TIMES financial reporter.

OLYMPIA, Wash. -- Just hours after President Obama announced changes to his health care law to give insurance companies the option to keep offering consumers plans that would otherwise be canceled, Washington state Insurance Commissioner Mike Kreidler says those changes will not be allowed in our state. Kreidler says Thursday he has "serious concerns" about how Obama´s proposal would be implemented and its potential impact on the overall stability of the state´s health insurance market.

This Tax Day, 55% of Americans regard the income taxes they have to pay as fair, the lowest percentage Gallup has measured since 2001. The results are based on Gallup´s Economy and Personal Finance poll, conducted April 4-7, and annually since 2001. The recent high in Americans´ perceptions that their taxes were fair, 64%, came in 2003, after President Bush signed tax cuts into law and weeks after the Iraq war began.

As I look back at the 2012 presidential campaign, it now all seems so obvious.Not one of those clowns performing at the hundreds of Republican primary debates this year and last was a match for the eventual nominee, Mitt Romney. And Romney clearly wasn't the candidate to defeat President Barack Obama.Yes and yes - but still. We don't always see what's happening before our very eyes. To me, the last 12 months (give or take a few) raise two central questions: If we don't learn from the flawed candidates of the past, how will we avoid taking them seriously in the future?

Attorney General Eric Holder exploded at Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert during a House hearing Tuesday. In the midst of questions about the Justice Department’s failure to divulge documents about the Holy Land Foundation terror funding trial, Gohmert made a side comment about how the House of Representatives found Holder in contempt in 2012 for refusing to turn over documents related to the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal. “I realize that contempt is not a big deal to our attorney general, but it is important that we have proper oversight,” Gohmert said. “You don’t want to go there, buddy!

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel´s top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for nonprofit status. Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., about True the Vote, a Texas-based, nonprofit conservative group that aims to prevent voter fraud. The communications at one point involved Lois Lerner, the ex-IRS official who Issa´s panel is poised to hold in contempt of Congress on Thursday for refusing to provide testimony about her

Speaking to the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network at its annual convention in New York on Wednesday, Holder talked about the state of civil rights today and brought up a House committee hearing Tuesday that grew contentious, according to video from Mediaite and reports from outlets including Capital New York. “The last five years have been defined by significant strides and

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

A founding father of the conservative movement who is now a star among Tea Party activists is urging the GOP to choose a governor to duel Washington “insider” Hillary Clinton for the White House, saying that 2016 isn´t the best time for Sen.

Nanny Firefox posted a political opinion on my screen before allowing me to proceed to read the article. This message didn’t appear when I accessed a second article which met with Firefox’s political commissar’s approval. Here’s what Firefox said: Careful Now!
