Toomey has turned into quite the RINO, and you can't count on liberal Casey for any kind of help.

"in a meaningful and bipartisan fashion" is not what either side of the aisle wants. They are too busy slinging mud and pointing fingers to get anything meaningful done.

"A plan to reduce the deficit and put the debt on a downward trajectory as a share of the economy would provide greater certainty, and as a result, provide the confidence necessary for businesses to make the proper investments that will ensure their success. It would also increase opportunities for small businesses to hire more workers and contribute to a stronger economy. I urge you to check out the Campaign to Fix the Debt, and to call your representatives in Washington. For the sake of small businesses across the state and around the country, we must fix the debt." - Thomas Rippon

Fortunately, for us, we've got the benefit of precedence...a process that's PROVEN to work.

So where do we get the "significant" cuts to discretionary spending that was made in part by the "peace dividend" and was a large part of that 1993 deficit reduction package?

How is it nonpartisan saying you are only going to accept reductions?

Shammy:"President Clinton Announces Another Record Budget Surplus - September 27, 2000"

This has been dispelled time and time again but they keep tossing ii in there.

Only a Liberal can say we had a "Record Budget Surplus" and yet see the National Debt increase.

Mr. Shaman would you agree that Clinton's second term was successful as a result of his willingness to reach across the aisle and work with the republicans? He admitted as much himself.

The idiots are on parade here. If you only want reductions in the budget is that not being partisan in you belief? Seeing how anytime one spends it is always liberal. How are you being nonpartisan with only reductions?

GysgtUSMC it takes two to compromise. The Republicans lead by Gingrich reached back across the aisle and worked with Clinton, they did not spend all of their time obstructing every move he made.

You're asking the wrong person. You might want to discuss that with those Fans O' Gridlock.

You are right Chuck, I cannot nor do I make any attempt to understand your inane partisan drivel.

This is 2013, not 1993. In 1993 we had the collapse of the Soviet empire which allowed us to significantly reduce our defense spending (aka deficit reduction) which along with a modest increase in tax rates allowed for deficit reduction. We have no such opportunities today that will allow us to reduce spending at those levels and if you or MrShaman think we do, then what are they?

...and for the record you mindless twit, I have always been for a balanced approach (spending cuts and tax increases for EVERYONE) to deficit reduction.

Hey....there's no explaining why Republicans insist on ballooning our debt...in the HOPES that Dems will bail-us-out...one-MORE-time.
