Bittner has obviously drank large quantities of Obama's koolaid. The democrats ignore the problem and want to increase spending with little meaningful cuts. The Republicans and Democrats need to work together on a serious plan to tackle and resolve this problem otherwise it will sink America into an economic collapse. You cannot continue giving people free stuff at the expense of the working class. We need real welfare reform that will give people a boost,educate them and give them pride in themselves instead of a welfare program that offers them nothing but status quo while raising generations of welfare recipients.Make them work for what they receive even if it is community work,road repair,etc. to learn a trade and obtain meaningful employment.Raising taxes only takes money from the workers pocket and giving it to those that don't work, money that would otherwise be pumped into the economy creating more jobs, more demand. Cuts,spending control and reform is needed

Lying deceptive spin from the Democrat Campaign Committee. Obama and the Democrats are experts at it. Spin. A couple of decades ago it would have been called lies. The media would have called them out. The Republicans have compromised on the debt ceiling, on the fiscal cliff, on taxes on the wealthy. It is Obama and the Democrats that are not compromising and LYING by saying the Republicans are the ones. It is the Democrats and Obama that are the Extremists. Their plan is TAX TAX TAX until America is destroyed as an economic power by the growing debt. Their plan is working.

Sure McKinley is going to fault someone else. His leaders tell him what to do and he recites his worn out lines. This man has done nothing for the 1st Congressional district of WV and doesn't care to address their problems ... that is of course unless they are some millionaire buddies.

a good word to describe the current infighting republican party is denial.

while this sequester is a lose/lose for the entire US, this round of manufactured crises will not bode well for the gop. moderate America is not blind to the ignorance in the mantra that is 'no new taxes'. the gop is setting itself up for another loss in 2014 and 2016.

betcha rethinking that rigid mentality now, ain'tcha?

It was so important, he came home to tell his people how bad it will be for the nation. Sure would have been nice if he and the rest of the do nothing congress had stayed and tried to fix the problem.

McKinley wants to screw with our social security and medicare. With a 14% approval rating, I would think McKinley would be re-evaluating his "DO NOTHING" positions of obstruction. We are now heading into 5 years of these MORONS in CONGRESS. He {McKinley} could care less about his Republican / Tea bagger Party, the working class of the 1st district, or anyone else, BUT his wealthy elite coal and oil companies... WHEN ARE YOU REPUBLICANS GOING TO AWAKEN AND STOP THIS CRAP FROM YOUR LEADERS ?????

The Radicals of the RIGHT WING can continue to SCREAM, AND SCREAM, AND SCREAM, all you want about OBAMA. But you had better remember that HE was re-elected by a GIANTLY OVERWHELMING MAJORITY. I used to be a middle of the road Democrat, and always voted a split ticket. However, because of the Radical Right that has emerged in the past five years and done the damage to nation that has been done. I WILL NEVER VOTE REPUBLICAN AGAIN !!!

Obama proposed the legislation and signed the bill. The assumption was that reasonable people would propose another "solution". Our government continues to borrow money to make more people dependent on government programs. The cuts in this legislation are not even a start toward balancing the budget. We need to address the decifit before our debt swallows us. I am disappointed in Republican leadership for not insisting on more cuts.

Obama never stops campaigning!

Could he be running for a third term? Representative Serrano {D-NY15} proposed "H.J.RES.15". Latest Title: "Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to repeal the twenty-second article of amendment, thereby removing the limitation on the number of terms an individual may serve as President."

You can read H.J.Res.15 proposal (introduced 1/4/2013) on the Thomas (Library of Congress)website.

@auburn - i am dumbfounded that you cannot understand that these cuts will hurt our economy and its citizens as well as the global economy. this will only slow our ability to handle the deficit.

your broken party/ideology is rapidly becoming a thing of the past.

then again... i am not so dumbfounded since you apparently believe government only exists to make people more dependent.

a republic is only as good as the citizens it represents.

Seriously? Multiple decades of running up debt and it's solely Obama's fault? McKinley is going to be in for a very rude awakening as debt finally crushes us.

We the people will be also, and deservedly so. We voted in these clowns that gave us instant gratification that we knew we'd have to pay for later.

pkrsbrgh; You can find "The LIBRARY of CONGRESS - Thomas" at *******thomas.loc.gov/home/thomas.php

This site is the source for federal legislation information. It provides the status of all legislations: proposed, failed or passed, how your Senators and Congressmen voted. You can find out if your Reps. supported or opposed a Bill.

Look it up and learn!

Consider how well you could live if yo only had to earn 60% of what you spend. This is what our government does, borrowing the rest, primarily from China. Then, when someone suggests that this is not sustainable and you need to spend less, you say "Oh , No, we will not be able to live the same way we are with borrowed money" DUH !! Of course, we will have to cut some government jobs and some government program. But this will be mild compared to what will happen if we continue to use these borrowed dollars to buy votes.

gorilla - this is the ninth time rep. serrano has introduced similar legislation you refer to since 1997 (which includes four attempts under bush's presidency). for you to claim that obama may wish to seek a third term because of this, simply is not supported by any facts.

also (yours truly), sen. mitch mcconnell introduced similar legislation in 1995.

maybe dive a little further in your research and theory-creating skills?

Gorrilla, Just because some obscure legislator makes a proposal to remove term limits on the office of president, is a TYPICIAL FOX NEWS TYPE of LIES and DISTORTION of the FACTS. However, because of OBAMA'S HIGH popularity and approval rating. I can understand your concern and YOUR TYPICAL RADICAL RIGHT WING attempts to distort the facts.... Although, I would seriously question the validity of your patroitism to country VS patroitism to RUSH LIMBAUGH TYPES.

I see that the teabaggers are here again,, criticizing the wrong person for the problem. How about directing your criticism towards the real problem, the speaker and his distinguished mob of naysayers refusing to compromise.

McKinley would take a chance at losing 700,000 America Jobs, because him and the republican leaders refuse to take a balanced approach that would cut wasteful spending on giveaways. Like corporate tax loopholes for Big Oil companies and the tax credits for companies that ship jobs overseas.

Whose fault is that?
