    To be fair, please identify anything other than taking meaningless show votes over and over that Tea Partiers in Congress have pushed for.

    Not all Republicans are evil. There are corrupt, hypocritical politicians on both sides. Just because bad examples have been cited does not mean that all Republicans are children-hating, poor-bashing, big oil loving, old white men sitting in a room smoking cigars. I am NONE of those.

    I am glad there are Republicans standing up and saying areas need to be cut. Or maybe not increased AS MUCH as what is being asked (since it seems this is referring back to the food stamp thing mentioned in other threads). But because areas are looking to be cut, all of a sudden it's "oh, the children", "oh, the poor", "oh, you're evil and don't care".

    This whole COUNTRY needs to tighten its proverbial belt and the abuses need to be cut in all areas. There is no sense of personal or national responsibility at all, that somehow the government must provide for everyone in all aspects of life. Like we're somehow children that can't make a valid decision.

    Those Vets this thread talks about? Those men (and women) fought for the right to give US the personal FREEDOM to make our choices but that also means living with the consequences of those choices. To the truly poor and destitute, yes by all means help them. However, people are constantly abusing the system. But any time someone tries to step in and say or do something about it - they're racist, or against the poor, or hate families. It is people like THAT which need to be put out of the system if they don't truly qualify and that frees funds up for those that are TRULY in need.

    Do you remember the minority democrats threatening filibuster after filibuster when W was elected? Both sides keep fighting for what they want.

    Well said, but in this stagnant economy no one should be getting more money or freebies. It's not like inflation is out of control and we all need more money to get by.
