All the other lawyers just keep propping up the welfare and warfare lobbies attempting to buy votes with taxpayer money. 16.4 trillion dollars in debt is all the evidence I need to say that the 2 party system has failed.

Haas Sun, 24 Feb 2013 22:06:52 +0000 http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/?p=837100#comment-31251383 Some time ago the President said that he would veto any attempt by congress to get around the sequester. The President knows best so we should all get behind him and demand that our representatives in congress do not even try to get around the sequester. Of course the sequester cuts get us no where close to ballancing the budget. The President needs to propose enough additional cuts and or tax increases to ballance the budget. The President promised that the 2012 federal deficit would not exceed 229.27 billion dollars and because of poor palnning he missed the mark by more than 900 billion dollars. The President needs to create a detailde plan for the federal government to pay back all of the money that it owes. The tax payers have a right to know how much all of this federal borrowing is realy costing them.
