1. Nope, I think that's what Obama himself said during his presser after the
meeting the other day. Today I heard (MSNBC) that they have reached an amount agreement, but are wrangling about their idealogical differences. Again, the other day Obama said no more cuts on those who need them the most. I'm praying we don't budge.

2. It is 30 now plus a 40 already done. When people say 30/33 & 70/73, they are actually
talking about the same numbers.

The Republicans want 61 vs. we agreed to 32/33. Repubs want 100 vs. 70/73 that we've agreed to.

Confusing? Yeah, kinda.

6. I think the issue in dispute now is WHERE the cuts will be made.

7. He's an idiot to agree to anything but signing....
the damn thing free of anything but to agree to fund the gov't.

Once the process is politicized, it's forever politicized.

The end of the USA is a lot closer than we realize.

9. He is allowing them to blackmail us. And as long as he allows it our
government is going to be threatened with shut down every so many weeks.

:rofl:

WEll, it would be funny, if it wasn't leading to so many deaths.

Not that it matters.
