Now you just swipe the card. But more people are on the food stamp program than in the great depression, but we are in recovery ... right.

Every month the food stamps program hits a new high but the MSM doesn't report it on their front page.

Yes..the government says we're in a recovery so ignore those "bad" high numbers.

Yeah, that Obama, he'd rather have more people in soup lines than to remove the barricades to bring jobs and manufacturing back to the USA so people can provide for themselves and their own families instead of being dependent on the government farm subsidy program known as food stamps. What a guy!

Obama and the Democrats have compromised quite a bit when it comes to tax breaks and budget cuts dont' you think? Bush cuts extended, stimulus package I think was over 33% tax cuts. Budget cuts are being discussed now.

Yeah... what a guy especially compared to the Republican alternatives who say 'No Compromise'.

FWIW, I think he's compromised too much and allowed the GOP to get more concessions than necessary. But that's my opinion and I'm pretty sure you won't agree.

No, I don't think Obama and the Democrats have compromised. They ruled with the iron fist of Marxism and are having a tantrum when voters turned the tables on them.

Wasn't it Obama that told the GOP to go sit in the back (of the bus), Pelosi pass the bill to see what is in it, GOP locked out of meetings and out of the House time after time, after time.

$30 Billion is not a cut, it is a single drop of water in a Pacific Ocean sized sea of debt greatly created while Congress was under Democrat control and the House under Pelosi leadership.

The high gas prices arent helping things. In ca today the switch to summer blend gas has increased a gal of gas 8-10 cents. Its f ing tough esp when you only get 15 mpg. CA has the highest gas prices in the nation.

The same conservatives who complain about high gas prices are the same ones that complain about the government spending on public transportation.
