Obama wants Republicans to approve spending

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/Obama-and-GOP-bicker-over-apf-3443764961.html?x=0

Seems it's time to address teh DR FIX that the Dems refused to put into the healthcare bill because they knew it would push them over their budget. Now they want Republican votes to pass the spending. Republicans are all for it but want it paid for. Of course the Dems will try and make Republicans out to be meanies because they won't vote for their needed spending. Whats wrong with making sure it's paid for before passing it?

  • If there's no money to pay for it, you can't buy it. That's not being mean; that's common sense.

  • Obama says he is bipartisan, but that is just a bunch of BS.  He just wants his agenda pushed through regardless of who it may hurt.  The healthcare bill was proof of that.  And it seems that his plan is clear, instead of trying to comprimise with the Repubs, he just goes crying to the media, insulting them and putting them down and trying to turn people against them, saying they won't work with him.  He is an extreme socialist, who IMO gives Dems a bad name.

    ***
    Didn't Obama EXTEND the timeline on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan? Didn't he approve to send MORE troops into the regions? Didn't he promise to bring the troops home, but instead "relocated" them?

    Just wanted to clarify WHO'S wars these are!
