Here is the list of budget cuts for the state-directed economy of Commy USA.
http://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files/omb/assets/legislative_reports/fy13ombjcsequestrationreport.pdf

Are you affected by those cuts? By how much? Do you think it is going to be something in the order of just 5% to 8%? How about the impact on the debt of Commy USA? Do you think this is Comrade Prezidente Oblabla's fault?

Feel free to add LOL USA comments!

I lay the blame on the Democrat Party. The Democrat led Senate has not submitted a budget in the last three years, and has tabled all of the budgets passed by the House. President Obama has only submitted one budget, that did not even receive a single Democrat Senatorial vote due to the fact it was so unrealistic and vague. When the OMB looked at it, that nonpartisan group said they could not put any numbers "to a speech."

The Democrats in the White House and Senate have done nothing but impede the stifling economy, whether through design or pure blind partisanship, take your pick.

I'm affected by the cuts in so far as they are woefully insufficient. $85B over ten years is irrelevant. Annual cuts need to be greater than the annual deficit, currently >$1T. So until they're talking about cutting hundreds of billions each year, it means little. So, yeah, LOL OBAMA'S COMMIE USA. LOLGOV for short.

These cuts are that much less money being stolen from me, now or later.

This is just the beginning, though. Maybe this will teach the crack-whore with the stolen credit card that when we mean cut spending, we're not fucking around. He tried to call the bluff, and he got fucked. So these cuts are his fault.

He had the option of choosing where and what to cut. Instead, he played chicken, refusing to cut anything, on the bet that nobody would dare follow through on this. So it's his fault, and he should explain to the American People why he let this happen and what he's going to do about it.

Instead, he's trying to use this to foment anger against Republicans, in an attempt to regain a majority in the House, so he can go back on the balls-out spending binge he was on during 2009-2010.

Children don't like it when they're told no. So I'm not convinced it is just the beginning. Nothing prevents the next congress from overspending. Ironically while looking for the "cannot obligate future sessions" reference, I came across this gem:

Both Houses use a budget enforcement mechanism informally known as pay-as-you-go or paygo which discourages members from considering acts which increase budget deficits.

If we really used "pay as you go", then how is it we've got a trillion-dollar deficit five years running?

While you're at it, look up "promise" which is the word Obama used in reference to pay-as-you-go.
http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/obameter/promise/34/enforce-pay-as-you-go-paygo-budget-rules/

Then look up the words "cacadoody" and "horse shit".

Yes, but in politispeak, promise is a guarantee you're going to be screwed :D

:lol:

There is also an advertising agency named "Wong, Doody, Crandall and Wiener".

Hey, speaking of Wieners, any Democrats been busted lately for sending pictures of their sexual organs to people or dressing up in tiger suits?
