Do you think Obama's plan for reducing the deficit could work?

Report as

The mantra of the Democratic party is "Tax and Spend" and the President is the cheerleader of this party. They are not at all interested in reducing spending and the deficit will continue to climb as it has his first four years in office. So the answer to your question is "no".

Then why are we in this mess bush was president 5 years ago
Report as
Bush's plans and laws he signed into action don't expire the moment he leaves office. They started back then, but they continue up to now. Some things just are the results of trends and bad luck. A great example would be the housing crisis. Bad luck that it showed up when Obama did. It was the result of years of easy approval practices - loaning people for a house they really could just barely afford - and then we started getting people walking away from their loans or getting foreclosed on, and it just spiraled. But that's not Bush's or Obama's fault - that was the housing industry itself. But Obama, the House and the Senate had to clean the mess up because it's affecting our nation's economy as a whole.

@bud - like I said, what? I'm not sure what you're telling me I'm repeating, or what exactly you think is correct. Clarification, please?

@bigred - what is destroying this country is a determination to focus on individual agendas and refusal to work together for the greater good of the American people as a whole. There are politicians of ALL parties that are guilty of that behavior.

Taxes=income

Obama raising income+ lowering debt= more balanced budget

Now let me add, for the uninformed... CONGRESS sets the budget. They agreed to bush's plan, it went through. They disagree with Obama, nothing happens so congress needs to get off their duff and do their job

As opposed to the Republicans, I have not seen a Democratic plan to reduce the deficit that could pass the house. Additionally, I've really not seen a plan to reduce the deficit that could work. To reduce the deficit, requires reducing spending, and the extent of reduction is approximately 30%. No Democrat plan has come even close to that.

His ideas have been tried many times throughout history. They have never ever worked. Sooner or later you run out if other people's money. I have heard that Liberalism is a mental disorder. Doing the same thing over and over then expecting different results is a sign of insanity. I think liberals have this problem.

What ideas? Punishing success and rewarding failure. Worst thing that ever happened to this country. Is it 2016 yet?

To be honest, i don't think he has an actual plan for reducing the deficet. It appears to me that his so called plan is more like a scripted set of ramblings to assure the people that everything is fine, all the while the real plan is being put into action. The real plan is suggested by his trickle down economics and other policies on almost everything else, and it indicates that he is deliberately inflating the deficit to facilitate an economic collapse. Which will by proxy result in a government takeover of the markets, creating a facist economic system which will eventually degenerate into a socialistic economic system, run by a communistic totalitarian government.

He doesn't have a plan to reduce the deficit. His only goal is to raise taxes in order to fuel the runaway federal spending.

What plan. If the "savior" could take "100%" of all the money the millionaires (yep 100%) made in 2011 he would only reduce his one year deficit by approx. 40%
