President Obama will reportedly return 5 percent of his salary each month to the Treasury out of a desire to share in the sacrifice that government employees are making. Are you either impressed or inspired?

  1. Very much so
  2. A little
  3. Not much
  4. Not at all

Obamacare will eliminate 2 million jobs in 2014 and shrink the economy by 1.7 percent, the Economic Policy Institute study projected.

Obama wants to do his part so you have to feel obligated to do your part. If you make 40 grand each year, you should return 5 percent to your employer, share in the sacrifice for the company.

If Obama can do it, you can too.

If Obama really wanted to do his part, he would return 5 percent of his total wealth, not the yearly salary.

If he is worth 10 million, he should pay the treasury 500 grand, or work for free for the next 15 months.

He should be fined a 100 thousand dollars for not paying his fair share.

Why isn't the IRS after this deadbeat?

Notice the dirty little mans budget..which his supporters don't like???

Obama supporters disagree particularly with the part of his spending plan that calls for a new inflation formula that would reduce the annual cost of living adjustments for a range of government programs, including Social Security and benefits for veterans.

Sleazy little punk should reduce4 all Government wages not just government programs cost of living..

Hey Bill I have something to say.. Looky what Obamammam boy is doing.

The official, who spoke on a condition of anonymity to describe a budget that has yet to be released, said Obama would reduce the federal government deficit by $1.8 trillion over 10 years.

Looky 1.8 Trillion over 10 years.. Guess you and your people like you will be dead and gone before this country ever gets back on its feet. Only going to take 40 or 50 years to get the debt paid off that Obama has racked up..

Ain't that Boy just grand?????

Obama will go down in history as the biggest spender ever. The Guy who bankrupted America and you8 can thank all the stupid idots that vited him in TWICE Dumb the first time and really reallly really dumb to do it agin..

What color are your roots, billgrr, as long as you brought up the subject?

Any answer you might give will be the opposite of titillating for me.

Geez Prez, that's great. Funny thing is there have been no spending 'cuts' because of the sequester. No, the sequester has only limited the planned/expected spending INCREASES. Now, how do I get invited to one of your big dance parties that I help fund? Oh, really? Well at least send me a pic of your Don Cornelius get-up. Thanks Prez. signed, Taxpayer.

From wikipedia...

"A welfare queen is a pejorative phrase used in the United States to refer to people who are accused of collecting excessive welfare payments through fraud or manipulation."

From urbandictionary...

#1 definition: "Welfare Queen: A woman, regardless of race who is living off the welfare system purely because of laziness and not due to any real need."

namexxx needs to use this phrase, because he imagines it can strengthen his (lack of) rational discourse.

From 1995 through 2009, seven states received the lions'share, 42%, of U.S. farm subsidies. Those states and their respective shares of total U.S. farm subsidies were:

Texas - 9.4% Iowa - 8.5% Illinois - 7.1% Minnesota - 5.8% Nebraska - 5.7% Kansas - 5.5% North Dakota - 4.7%

As you see we produce the largest amounts of most grains but we do not receive the largest amount of subsidies. All hail Texas!

Soybeans are also an increasingly important crop with 400,000 acres (1,600 km2) additional planted between 2002 and 2007.[58] Soybeans are a major crop in the eastern part of the state and cultivation is common in the southeast part of the state. Soybeans were not grown in North Dakota in the 1940s, but it has become more common in the last 50 years and especially since 1998.[59] In North Dakota soybeans have to mature fast, because of the comparatively short growing season. Soybeans are grown for livestock feed. North Dakota is the second leading producer of sugarbeets, grown in the Red River Valley. The state is also the largest producer of honey, dry edible peas and beans, lentils, and the third largest producer of potatoes. North Dakota's economy is aided by nearly $1 billion in federal agricultural subsidies annually.

The state is the largest producer in the U.S. of many cereal grains including barley (36% of U.S. crop), durum wheat (58%), hard red spring wheat (48%), oats (17%), and combined wheat of all types (15%). The state is the leading producer of many oilseeds including 92% of the U.S. canola crop, 94% of flax seed, 53% of sunflower seeds, 18% of safflower seeds, and 62% of mustard seed. Canola is suited to the cold winters and it matures fast. Processing of canola for oil production produces canola meal as a by-product. The by-product is a high-protein animal feed. Soybeans are a
