Oops!!! Dem Senator Max Baucus Has A Moment Of Candor! Destroys Obama’s Imaginary World!!!

Barry Zero and the complicit media has been whining about the looming spending cuts known as sequestration.  Oddly, Zero is attacking Repubs for this.  While the Repards did sign on to this bit of idiocy, it was the presidents idea and insistence on this condition during the debt ceiling negotiations in 2011.  He’s been blathering things such as this…..

President Obama warned Tuesday about the “brutal” consequences of $85 billion in “meat cleaver” budget cuts set to take effect March 1 — and laid the groundwork for blaming the Republicans if they come to pass.

“Would they rather put hundreds of thousands of jobs and our entire economy at risk just to protect a few special interest tax loopholes that benefit only the wealthiest Americans and biggest corporations?” Obama asked of the GOP during a White House event.

But, this is the crap Zero insisted upon, and now, right after raising taxes, he wants more money to spend instead of finding other places to cut spending. 

 

“The White House recommended it, frankly.  Back in August 2011.” 

The problem is that the House wants cuts, but, they’re willing to cut in different places and in a different manner, but Zero is insisting on more revenue, after he just got his tax raises at the first of the year.

    Zero does not want any cuts. He has ruled out every area for cuts with his latest stupidity,

    But that does bring up an interesting dilemma. He insisted upon a tax increase on the rich so that the burden would not be born by “the poor and middle class alone”. Ok, he got it. And of course taxes have gone up on the middle class. So right now, everyone is paying.

    Except the poor. It is time that we saw some benefit cuts. When you can live like you are making $50-70k a year and only be making $10k, it is time you got a cut as well.

    The poor are making out like bandits. They have sacrificed nothing so far. NOr will they with Obama in charge. But that should be held up as to WHY REAL budget cuts are needed.

      That’s not completely true, Phil. The ‘poor’ are paying indirectly via higher prices and via fewer opportunities (at least for the ‘poor’ who desire to not be ‘poor’ in the future) to get a job. The sick are paying too, in having to put out more effort to find good medical care routinely (I feel for the ER staff, they’re going to get swamped).
