Politicians are like spoiled little brats

Senate GOP now plans to block any and all legislation not relating to the Bush tax cuts, no matter how important other legislation might be to this country.

Basically it amounts to nothing more than a temper tantrum.

Republican.Senate.Gov - Blogs

Maybe if both sides quit acting so childish, they might be able to reach agreements faster, and get stuff done quicker. But no, all they do is play the blame game, piss each other off, pat each other on the back, and in the end get nothing accomplished.

Good job, Washington

Re: Politicians are like spoiled little brats

Do you think these tax increases are what is needed so the Dems can support the bills they passed???

Re: Politicians are like spoiled little brats

Do you think the deficit only occurred........from only the bills the Dem's have passed?

Absolutly not but the health care bill has a big price tag.

Nowhere in my post did I say or imply that in any way.

Good job, Washington
Along those same lines of things that seem silly, I keep hearing about balancing the budget.

Can someone explain to me, how balancing the budget at this time............. will create jobs or stimulate the economy?

Not to say that it doesn't need to be done, because it certainly does need to be............... it's just for the life of me I can't understand why it is the number one priority at this point.

Hows' that?

Last I heard, it will be a net reduction.

Congressional Budget Office - Health Care (click here)

Quote:
On March 20, 2010, CBO released its final cost estimate for the reconciliation act, which encompassed the effects of both pieces of legislation. Table 1 (on page 5) provides a broad summary and Table 2 offers a detailed breakdown of the budgetary effects of the two pieces of legislation. CBO and the staff of the Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) estimate that enacting both pieces of legislation will produce a net reduction in federal deficits of $143 billion over the 2010-2019 period.
Do you have a reputable source that shows differently?

Your an absolute sheep if you believe that.
CBO: Health Care Bill Will Cost $115 Billion More Than Previously Assessed - Political Punch

CBO had originally estimated that the health care reform bill would result in a net reduction in federal deficits of $143 billion from 2010-2019; this revised number would eliminate most of that savings.
