Republicans HAVE agreed to tax increases in the past. I remember when Reagan agreed to a tax increase in exchange for a $3 reduction in spending for every $1 in tax increase. It never happened. This is not the only case, but it is the best example.
The problems with the budget can be solved with the expansion of the economy and the cutting of the spending. This has to include everything, including the military, SS, Medicare & Medicaid. I am not sure anybody is really serious about this.

I'd also point out that Pat Toomey on the so-called "super-committee" last year and other Republicans, including Tom Coburn, who were part of the so-called "gang of six" have proposed tax increases. One could also argue the both Ryan and Romney's plan to cut rates but also eliminate deductions will amount to a tax increase.

The President's wheelhouse rejoinder to the Dimon Shrugged testimony has clearly been lost on you, Doc(s). Obama has nothing to lose with a safe early season speech like this one was.

Go fishing, fellers.

Really, KB, you're as predictable as 90 degree weather in July. The fact that you are completely and totally factually wrong about just about everything in this post means we can't look to you for anything but wrong answers on the economy.

The deficits were caused by Republican policies during the Bush presidency, and the need to fix the Republican caused near depression. Get rid of the Republicans, and you get rid of deficits and the structural problems down the road with the social safety net. Republicans in Congress didn't support Simpson-Bowles, and they turned down efforts to address the entitlements. Only on planet KB is that Obama's fault.

"Get rid of the Republicans, and you get rid of deficits and the structural problems down the road with the social safety net."

Donald, how I wish it were that simple!

"The deficits were caused by Republican policies during the Bush presidency, and the need to fix the Republican caused near depression."

Well, we did have a surplus under Clinton, and I do believe that Republican policies allowed (but did not necessarily cause) deficits and the near depression.

Okay, so there. Now what?

George W. Bush caused the assissination of Julius Caesar, the crucifixion of Christ, and the wrongful death of Joan of Arc. What can we do about all that now, except, as Obama's slogan says, look "Forward"?

Stan Gibilisco

I meant to say that Bush caused the +assassination+ of Julius Caesar. The great emperor's +assissination+, however, was his own damn fault.

Dear readers: Donald is not a straw man. I did not invent him to make my own arguments look better or to emphasize the point that the President and his defenders have absolutely nothing left but to blame everything on Bush. There actually is such a person as Donald Pay. Just thought I should mention that.

Until you disown the policies that caused the depression and deficits, including tax cuts that are unpaid for because you want to pay off your corporate and wealthy donors, you aren't going to balance the budget. We have not seen the Republicans willing to take the first step in this process.

I remember a Balco rep a couple years ago saying this.
And it really is quite believable by looking at the players.
Even the CLEAN professional bodybuilders do not look that bulky.
And I do believe that MLB players only use steroids in the offseason now because of the new testing standards.
HGH can be used during the season because it is virtually undetectable.
