Seriously, folks.

Do the math.

Exactly what percent of reduction in anticipated spending increases are we talking about here?

We didn't fall off the turnip truck last night and the sky will not be falling tomorrow morning - unless obama deliberately tries to scare us by making things worse than the amount of money involved could possibly justify.

Perhaps obama could use some of the tax increase on "the rich" that he got on New Years to pay for the dreaded cuts.

The Sequester has begin and the Republican Congress has left town. Shows how little the Republican Congress cares about America and how much they care about having the Rich not pay their fair share of income taxes.

Warrenproud, Can you tell me how many times Obama has actually sat at the table with both sides to find solutions? You claim the republicans left town, Obama has nevr been there, he is either at a campaign style event, or goofing off.

A fact worth repeating over and over:

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, 'the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better."

"Ryan, Dem LEAN Republicans" from what I understand Ryan has a lot of experience with "leaning" especially after having ONE two many and then trying to walk back to his hotel room, just a thought.

It is really funny that after the failed debacle of GWB Hoover and the failed Republican congress that any right-wing nut on here can make comments about anything. Do you really thing your words carry any weight or meaning?

And, you people need to get a job and get off the public dole. And if you are working stop wasting your employers money and do something and get off your employers welfare. You go back and forth at all times of the day and night. Therefore you must be lazy moochers.

Well, 9am break is over. Some people have to work for a living.

Commonsense put it well in Obama's own words:

A fact worth repeating over and over:

What an insincere fradulent statement by Democrat Congress members in Ohio.

Ryan should use his 'sway' with the Liar-in-chief and urge the Liar-in-Chief to quit campaigning and get back to work and stay there, no more continuous vacations.

To any person familiar with the sequester, this article is a piece of political horse sh et.

Oh so NOW the Dems want the GOP's help. What phoney's they are. Obama & his transparency..such a joke & now all his threats & scare tactics. Over a lousy 2%. Hope the Congress doesn't cave. There's no talking to those Dems...they think they're always right anyway. More lies keep coming. I think it's a riot they look to Kasich for help. Perhaps they're running scared. Ryan & his cronies are a big joke. It's gonna backfire & they'll blame the GOP's. Obama is ruining this world, but the Muslims & recipients of cell phones love him!!!

Can these people be real? Honest to god; the reaction of the Democats to any kind of cuts is like in the movies when the vampire is approaching and you hold up a cross. They're actually starting to hiss, like they got sprayed with holy water. Kasich doesn't want to help them. He wants to hold the stake while Boehner swings the hammer.

Tomorrow's Trib story:

President Obama says, "The Republicans would rather balance our budget than add to our national debt."

John Boehner says, " I can't think of a better quote than to use the President's OWN WORDS."

President Obama said, "The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, 'the buck stops here.'

And the hypocrite Prez's tit hurts even more...

Ryan and Hypocrites Incorp> Will you quit your spending & start cutting:

16 Billion spent on Welfare for illegals.

22 Billion spent on Food,WIC, Free lunches for illegals

2.5 Billion spent on Medicaid for Illegals

12 Billion spent on primary, secondary education, and they still won't speak English.

17 Billion spent on Anchor babies from illegals-

1 Billion spent on illegals in jail

US Citizens have lost 200 Billion in annual wages because illegals don't care about wages. I just showed you 70 billion dollars, now what are you going to do about it.

And also Ryan the middle east Muslims are flying pregant women into the United States to have their babies. It's happening right in your district. If the government workers would be given some direction, maybe we could get something done. But no, you play politics-
