i'm still trying to figure out why republicans didn't reform or get rid of entitlements when they had control of the house and senate between 2002-2006.

They conveniently like to forget about not too long ago when it was their turn at bat.

Because there is a LOT more money going towards entitlements than anything else.

Look at the budget breakdown and you'll see what I mean. We're not talking a couple hundred billion in deficits, we're in the TRILLIONS now.

You're right. I wish they would have done something years ago about it.

Unfortunately neither party has the guts to do what is really necessary because it will cost them votes.

From his past character, it sounds like Romney is taking notes from Ron Paul, to become more Conservative, with a neocon twist of his own.

Progressivism, is a cancer that has eaten both political parties.

Over, under, and around the US Constitution has become a sport.

Because that is Washington DC for ay and thus the reason the Tea Party formed and Ron Paul has such a loyal following.

But guess what? RP and the Tea Party are called extremists by the main stream media,and the Establishment.

Now given that, do you really now wonder why the Republican's didn't act when they had control?
