Mr. Boehner, show us the cuts.

Mr. Boehner, if you are going to hold the American economy hostage in an ideological war. Show the American people your demands. Pass something in the House. Let it see the light of day and the scrutiny of the American people.

And do not say, " why pass something the Senate won't pass". Remember Mr. Speaker, you brought repealing Obama care up for a vote over 30 times.

Once again, show the American people your agenda and go on record with your proposed cuts. Unless you have got something to hide?

2. Probably not.

But if Boehner and his lemmings are going to lead us back into recession. I want to see why. I want to know what it was that they wanted cut so bad that they sacrificed the economy.

4. Damn right!

The media has let these jackasses get away with this long enough!

They SCREAM forever about how they are the adults, they are making the tough decisions, they are the ones who are serious about getting spending under control.

But, they ball like 3 year olds when it is suggested that they actually SAY what they think should be cut.

The complete and total deevolution of the party, where they just are so gosh darn entitled, they want to make political hay on being the ones who are SERIOUS ABOUT THE BUDGET, but they want the POTUS to be the one who takes the blame for the actual cuts.

This should be the position of EVERY democrat in DC.

IF they want these cuts, they need to spell them out.

Keep repeating it, don't let them off the hook when they get all arrogant and defensive about WE HAVE THIS BUDGET, IT IS OUT THERE, or whatever crape they spew when they get pushed back on it.

5. As I have said elsewhere

They want President Obama to propose cuts so that they can reject them and then run against Dems in 2014 (and 2016 too). They are accusing the President of "failing to lead" but dont seem to get that they are failing to lead too by not doing anything themselves, particularly since they actually have the power to do something about it.

6. All talk --- that's all it is. The Rs don't know how to cut. All they do is CUT TAXES never

spending. When the Rs were in the white house spending ALWAYS increased. Boehner and his R idiots have had 2 years now to come up with specific spending cuts but they don't have the brains or balls to do it.
They were voted in 2010 to create jobs -- haven't done that; now spending cuts --haven't proposed a damn thing. The democrats should come up with spending cuts and when the Rs complain about them dare them to come up with something serious and stop the crying.
