Take our poll: Should House Republicans compromise with Democrats and agree to trade increased taxes for budget cuts?

The 2011 terms of the Budget Control Act will go into effect Jan. 1, 2013. Mandatory budget cuts, the end of the Bush tax cuts, and new Obamacare taxes will begin. While no one wants to see the U.S. plunge off the “fiscal cliff,” partisan politics may make it difficult to reach a compromise.

    We need to cut all the wasteful spending. Like the so called contributions to solar energy like Solyndra that went bankrupt.

      All I can say is that it is time that the American People go to Washington and Fire each and every Congressman,Congresswoman , Senator, State Rep and the moron president of U.S. We are tired of all of your lies, your wasteful spending, your lavish vacations on taxpayers money, the first lady is vacationing around the world and wants the American people believe that she is paying for these vacations how stupid does she really think we are. The president only get 400,000 yr salary unless he is getting paid by other countries to sell the U.S. out. (wouldn’t doubt it) obama’s kids go to the best schools, and amazing how obama himself or his family will not be covered by his own insurance policy that he is forcing on the the american people, and all of the congress,senators and house representatives have placed clauses in the bill to keep them safe from his obamacare. All of you politicans in any office are LIARS AND THEIVES. SHAME ON YOU. LIE JUST TO GET BACK IN OFFICE. I PRAY THAT TEXAS DOES REMOVE THEMSELVES FROM THE U.S.. YOU PEOPLE HAVE PUT THE U.S.A IN THIS DEBT BECAUSE YOU ARE IGNORANT AND HAVE NO IDEA WHAT YOU ARE DOING. OBAMA DOESN’T CARE WHAT HAPPENS HE GOT HIS PIECE OF THE PIE AS HE PUTS IT, HE WILL NEVER BE WITHOUT AND WILL ALWAYS HAVE EVERYTHING, HOW STUPID ALL OF YOU THAT VOTED HIM BACK INTO OFFICE. you don’t have anything and guess what He doesn’t care. He Used You.Thanks Alot….

    Give Obama everything he wants! Then he can not blame anyone else, and those fools who voted for him will be forced to take off their rose colored glasses and face REALITY!. The mainstream media won't be able to cover up the fall out. When the dems are finally thrown out of the Senate and the White house,only then can things be reversed!

    I think that it is high time that the republicans let this country go over the fiscal cliff because that is the only thing that the Demoncrats understand. We will be going over the cliff if the demoncrats have their way eventually-so why not stop them NOW.

  • sri pillai

    it is time for bipartisan politics.the nation is more important than our party principles and ideologies.Plug tax deductions and cut Medicare,Obamacare and Social.Put the country on the long term path to solve our debts.The question is whether they have the courage to do it or they are just a bunch of sissies.

  • Cyndy Carpentieri

    Excellently stated, Elizabeth. I couldn't have put it any better than that!

  • Pam

    Since when is Social Security and medicare an entitlement? We paid into it along with our employers.

    • http://none Randi

      Sir I agree except the most cuts should be in true entitlements, such as food stamps, disability and welfare. Obama changed sll those so people can just draw their money, not even look for jobs, so that needs to be changed.

      My husband and I could get food stamps, but we do Not, so here is a challenge to others on very limited incomes to do as we are, help the country, do not ask for food stamps. Cut out all the unnessary things, if you smoke, quit, will kill you anyway. Look how much edible food you can get for the price of a pack of cigarettes. People need to cooperate too.

  • Shannon

    Heck no! We in the middle class get like 20% of our paycheck cut from taxes. We don't need more! Tax everyone the SAME percentage! Be fair!

    Not any more Texas fault than any of the others, all do it..
