Let us go off the cliff! We need to get serious about spending. Please research how much a trillion is. We toss it around like it's no big deal. That's 1.37 Million per day for 2000 Years!! Pull your heads out of the sand. We're going over a cliff, like it or not.

Reid and Pelosi declared there is no government fat to cut, so that only leaves tax increases.

Let the tax cuts expire on Jan 1. After that the repubs will be happy to then reinstate cuts for those under 250k. That is probably the only way to get the rates on the rich back to where they need to be. We should also follow Warren Buffet's advice and put in a minimum tax rate of 30% or more for the really rich, a rate which includes capital gains and dividend income.

Funny how everyone insists that EVERYONE ELSE have their taxes increased, but "NOT MINE". Get a grip. Look at the rest of the world and see if they are able to sustain TRILLION dollar deficits every single year. Obama promised to go Line by line to cut the budget of all the waste. There is no cuts. It's always increase, increase, increase. Tell us, why are we sending hundreds of billions of dollars to over one hundred different countries when we can't even afford to take care of our own people. Why are we allowing presidents to have 1.5 MILLIOIN dollar vacations. Why is there a Million dollar budget for the first lady who has absolutely NO role in gov't. Look at the per diem of the congress. It is outrageous. Look at the pension and benefits for congress. Look at every federal dept. Do we need a Dept of education when every state and Local district has exactly the same thing. Do we need to spend millons on research on the effects of flooding on field mice in California. Do we need to give hundreds of billions to Venezuelan oil companies, when our own oil companies are getting their permits cut.
