Why should the American people loose entitlements to these programs? Also, all illegal immigrants and any family they had while here illegally should be deported immediately. Yes, all 11+ million. Legal immigrants should enjoy all the benefits as Americans.

And the law is the budget is to be balanced every year , so start obeying the laws of our land Mr. President. And stop wasting the American peoples tax dollars on things that you want just because you want them. Shall not the judge of all the earth do right ? Who is God Almighty our creator and he will judge one day the thoughts , motives , deeds , and sins of everyone ever born into this world. So prepare to meet thy God. And it is appointed unto men once to die but after this the judgment. And except ye repent ye shall all likewise perish. Christ died for our sins taking the judgment for them in his own body on the tree and rose again from the dead and returned to heaven. And only those who repent and believe the gospel in their hearts have any chance of being saved at all. Sincerely ; Then do right because it is right to do right.

Regardless of your political viewpoint noe of that is remotely realistic. You have to be stupid or blindly sycophantic to follw a person leading you down that road, whether it be a bush or an obama I still can’t believe there are people in this country who believe that our debt being more than the GDP is OK, and that borrowing 60 cents of ever dollar we spend is fine and dandy, and that 50+%of the country receiving entitlements is feasible, and 40+% not paying any taxes on income is sane.

It is INSANE that this man cares nothing about $16.5 TRILLION of debt. George, are you happy that your fearless leader doesn't care about going bankrupt as a country. Just where would you be if ABC didn't care about the 'bottom line'. Out of a job, like the rest of us. So, why did I have to go bankrupt just because I was a few thousands of dollars in debt.
