    I'm really surprised that we all have to bicker over programs that the folks that benefit from have to pay into as employees/workers to begin with.
    Offseason To Do List:
    1. Make an offseason to do list.
    2. Get some tips on the ladies from Clark the Cub.
    3. P90X with Prince Fielder.
    4. Compile top ten list of top ten G.O.A.T. top ten lists.

    My preference is to end the programs----pay out folks based on age and input into the system and then I don't have to listen to partisan thugs negotiate about who is worthy and who isn't.

    Romney wouldn't have been in office yet... if anything you'd have a more aggressive Obama.

    This how our politicans do things here. They ignore a problem, ignore, point fingers at each other, delay a decision to do more studys, politicing and then when the crap hit the fan and a crises is created and they will do what they want to do all along, cut entitlements and lower taxes on the job creators (big business and the most wealthy). And then tell us, they had to do it to prevent economical collaspe of america.

    For once in my mfering life, I wish congress and the president would prevent a major problem from happening or atleast before it blew up in our faces. That is why we elect them to steer the country. Not to hit every sandbar, other boats and crash into the harbor and look surprise and point fingers at each other after they burn the boat down. Now Obama is suggesting they raise this do nothing congress's salary..

    You mean they raised taxes and didn't cut any real spending?

    I dont understand the argument against spending. It reminds me of the Doctors who live in million dollar homes and die with a **** load of debt. The debt is there but it's never going to impact us.

    No joke. What a surprise. This "compromise" is a load of ****. I'm not convinced that this country shouldn't have gone over the cliff. It probably wouldn't have been near as catastrophic as some would have you believe, and at least the spending cuts would have been substantial.

    Have no clue what to think of this. Pretty much everyone seems equally pissed about the outcome. We kicked budget cuts and the debt ceiling another 2 months down the road, so get ready to hear it all over again pretty soon folks...

    Yes......this is another perfect example of how well they are doing. Their are really beating the hell out if Obama's fist with their face. Lol

    I never get enough of these GOP delusions. Yeah you got Obama right were you want him.

    Karl Rove is that you?

    That doesn't make sense. How could a lame duck Obama have more power in a negotiation?

    Because, as an outgoing incumbent, he would have nothing to lose.

    Bob Dylan puts it better than any of us could: "When you ain't got nothing, you got nothing to lose".
