    "But I believe we should do it in a balanced way – with smart spending cuts, entitlement reform, and tax reform."

    What the hell does THAT mean?  "Smart" cuts?  "entitlement reform".  

    I am so fed up with this "balanced approach" b.s.  

    When you balance cutting someone's Social Security benefit through chained CPI with taxing some zillionaire on his yacht there is NO BALANCE IN THIS APPROACH.

    The whole balance thing is just so dishonest because you are not requiring equal sacrifice from the people who are getting "balanced".  Oh, but it sounds good to the serious people, so moderate, so measured.  

    At least the Tea Party is brutally honest about what they want to do.  I still have no clue what Obama and the Democratic Party are going to do.  

    As far as I can tell, Obama wants to replace cuts in the sequester with cuts to entitlements and I'm supposed to support that?  NO!!!

      And no I am not "sharing" anymore.  I am quite "balanced" enough thank you.  

      But the first time any tea partiers lose a penny of SS or Medicare...sorry...think the outcry will deafen the country.

      NO absolutely NO cuts to the big three.
