No, that's not what I'm saying. Of course you would know that if you looked at what I linked to. One does not have to mess with entitlements to reduce federal spending. Addressing the growth of entitlement spending should be looked at as well.

So, curtailing the growth of entitlement spending is not messing with entitlement spending? Who knew? I guess that makes perfect sense to the dying sparks of sputtering synapses inside your head.

It is pretty telling that as soon as the community organizer disappeared the economy took off. The only way around it is somewhere in the cloud of the lefty mind.

The economy has been doing quite well since Obama inherited the Republican caused meltdown. It has finally fully recovered, thanks to Obama era regulations on Wall Street causing a restoration of trust.

You remind me of the Obama voter who called in to the radio talk show complaining about where they put the deer crossing sign, saying there were safer places to have the deer cross.
