A few gooses are about to get cooked, but then again, what did we expect from the other side of the globalist coin?
According to Newsmax, Senator Jon Kyl has stated that there will be upwards of $200 billion in ‘new revenue’ on the debt ceiling deal and the Washington Post is reporting Obama stating the democrats will make significant cuts to Social Security and Medicare. TheHill is reporting that Boehner’s GOP is considering upwards of $1 trillion in new revenues. Does that not just warm your heart and make you want to go back to sleep and let the elites run the world?
Guess what? America does want significant entitlement reform (like maybe taking the government out the middle of our retirement and medical care) so that our country doesn’t go bankrupt in the next two years, but raising taxes in the middle of a depression? Are You Freakin’ Kidding Me? This is where the goose-cooking of the (expected) traitorous GOP comes in for trying to treat the symptom instead of curing the disease; the Federal Reserve. Yes folks, the Federal Reserve allows the government to HAVE a credit card/debt ceiling; without them, the government would have to live within it’s means…just like the rest of the corporate-owned moos.
Kyl: GOP Agrees to Up to $200B in New Revenues
WASHINGTON – One day before a crucial U.S. budget meeting between the White House and congressional leaders, a high-ranking senator said Republicans have agreed to including significant revenue increases in a deficit-reduction framework.
“If you add up all of the revenues that we Republicans have agreed to, it’s between $150 billion and $200 billion,” said Senator Jon Kyl, the No. 2 Republican in the Senate.
Kyl said two possible ways to bring additional revenue to the government would be through sales of government property and additional fees for government services.
And here is why the dog and pony show of the debt ceiling has gone on for so very long, and why possibly, no budget was passed for the last two years.
In debt talks, Obama offers Social Security cuts
President Obama is pressing congressional leaders to consider a far-reaching debt-reduction plan that would force Democrats to accept major changes to Social Security and Medicare in exchange for Republican support for fresh tax revenue.
At a meeting with top House and Senate leaders set for Thursday morning, Obama plans to argue that a rare consensus has emerged about the size and scope of the nation’s budget problems and that policymakers should seize the moment to take dramatic action.
As part of his pitch, Obama is proposing significant reductions in Medicare spending and for the first time is offering to tackle the rising cost of Social Security, according to people in both parties with knowledge of the proposal. The move marks a major shift for the White House and could present a direct challenge to Democratic lawmakers who have vowed to protect health and retirement benefits from the assault on government spending.
“Obviously, there will be some Democrats who don’t believe we need to do entitlement reform. But there seems to be some hunger to do something of some significance,” said a Democratic official familiar with the administration’s thinking. “These moments come along at most once a decade. And it would be a real mistake if we let it pass us by.”
Rather than roughly $2 trillion in savings, the White House is now seeking a plan that would slash more than $4 trillion from annual budget deficits over the next decade, stabilize borrowing, and defuse the biggest budgetary time bombs that are set to explode as the cost of health care rises and the nation’s population ages.
That would represent a major legislative achievement, but it would also put Obama and GOP leaders at odds with major factions of their own parties. While Democrats would be asked to cut social-safety-net programs, Republicans would be asked to raise taxes, perhaps by letting tax breaks for the nation’s wealthiest households expire on schedule at the end of next year.
I have been so done with these asshats for so long. I still think cutting the purse strings is the fastest way to get their attention.
