    So with the cliff and Taxmageddon approaching, Republicans honestly don't want to cut entitlements and be seen as the bad guy. Democrats used our money and borrowed from China to buy the votes through entitlements, so they won't do it.

    What if instead of cuts, we just enforce it so only CITIZENS can get food stamps, medicare etc?

    Has it been tried? Certainly not in Texas.

    That's pennies on the dollar of the problem. No one wants to share in the pain so the whole thing is going to go down.

    the GOP will cave in.....increased taxes on the working class will be blamed on the GOP no matter what they do.

    Nope the GOP is going to be blamed no matter what so let the Usurper have his way and let it crash around him. He signed off on this back in June so let him have what he created!:rofl:
