#1 We can't keep shifting a growing burden to future generations.

Then quit issuing any Treasury Bill with anything longer than a 6 year maturity. Don't try, Do.

#2 Silly me, I thought the whole reason the economy blew up was because of all those loans issued to anyone who could fog a mirror!

#5 He can say anything now that he's captured the "conservative" Utah vote. According to ABC news, he's been formally accepted by The Temple and is now a Mormon....er, huh, hmm, kind'r sort'r of Mormon lineage. So totally multi-cult. So inclusive. No undoing this one.

#7 “If the drug makers pay their fair share, we can cut government spending on prescription drugs.”

Why should a private company be obligated to cut it's profits to help pay for government programs? Isn’t that why they pay taxes? Boy howdy, when he said it wasn't going to "business as usual" anymore he wasn't kidding.

#8 The Indian Health Service is a good example of a government-run health plan which shifts the burden directly to the present generation.
On some reservations, the oft-quoted refrain is "don't get sick after June," when the federal dollars run out. It's a sick joke, and a sad one, because it's sometimes true, especially on the poorest reservations where residents cannot afford health insurance. Officials say they have about half of what they need to operate, and patients know they must be dying or about to lose a limb to get serious care.

Wealthier tribes can supplement the federal health service budget with their own money. But poorer tribes, often those on the most remote reservations, far away from city hospitals, are stuck with grossly substandard care. The agency itself describes a "rationed health care system."

Okay- once more for those who didn't get it the first five times.

No. Obama. Birth. Certificate. Conspiracy. Crap.

This one is gone - now.

Anyone else - do it, and you're out of here as well.

Understand? End of discussion.

#11 Translation: "I don't have a problem, I can stop spending your money any time I want".

#12 Steve... after recent name calling, "fool" etc, I quickly took the cure and am fully on board. Meds are probably out of the question, but maybe you could come up with some sort of POSTUS citizenship chant or mantra for any of the other Rantburg non-believers. Just a suggestion.
