But, but renewed focus on funding mental health care! I thought they cared!

I urge each of you to contact the President and tell him to hold his ground. No funding cuts for the poor, the disabled, or the elderly. Tax increases on those earning $250,000 or more per year. He needs to keep his campaign promises and save our Country.

The White House has an easy email form to fill out and/or a number to call.

Ok, so what can he cut?

You will hear that the President has agreed to cuts.

Where is that list? What has he agreed to cut?

Can you find it anywhere? Or do we just agree that no cuts are possible, and that the budget should just add another trillion dollars to the debt.

The tax increase will NOT cover the trillion dollar deficit in the budget.

Balanced approach? OK, what cuts?

Yep.

re: #6 Buck

Start with corporate welfare.

Next, cut subsidies to the wealthy.

See where that gets us along with raising taxes on the wealthy.

I would start with the billions of dollars we (the taxpayers) give to the oil companies for "exploration" when they are making record profits and the amount that they already have in proven reserves is vastly more than needed to cause a complete eco-catastrophe if burnt.

Then, I would go to exemptions made for investments such that guys like Romney only paid 12%. If your source of income is manipulating the market, then you should get taxed on it.

I would also cut all manner of military pork - not the stuff we really need like enough body armors, rifles and bullets, medical infrastructure, and R&D, but the stuff we really don't need like maintaining outmoded ships or building more outmoded tanks.

Realistically, 250,000 I think is too low to set the limit. That is the kind of money that a combined income of two higher end professionals might have. Assuming that they have no student loans for things like graduate school, medical school law school etc... they would be fine. But in reality, to comfortably have a house of one's own and save for kids college without fear of being wiped out by a medical emergency (in other words, actually be comfortably middle class) $250,000 in today's real dollars is not sufficient. I would set the bar at $300,000 - $350,000.

I wonder if this is house bill 486.
