#1 Obumbles wants eveyone to pay for blue-state fiscal irresponsibility - For example California's 'greece-like' union pensions and benefits. Not to mention their fat paychecks while everyone else is trimming down and doing without.

"massive layoffs of teachers, police and firefighters"

This is a THREAT that they will cut education, protection and firefighters first -- before their 'pet projects' not to mention their support illegal aliens.

After all we wouldn't want them to go bankrupt - then they would be able to re-negotiate their union contacts. Can't have that!

#2 "the national debt is undermining congressional support for additional spending to bolster the economy. "

Problem is, congress NEVER bolsters the economy.
Every dollar the public sector spends is one the Private sector may not use to BUILD ECONOMY.

Clowns scare people, stop spending other peoples money clowns.

#3 "Some kind of help is what helping is all about. Some kind of the help is the kind of help we all could do without."

You are providing the latter kind.

STOP HELPING!!! You are only making it worse!

#4 As a California resident, I've been treated over the years to constant politicing by the California teachers union (CTA) and democrat politicians abiout how poorly funded California schools are, with numbers batted around like less than $9,000 per pupil, and how we need to spend more and more for our failing schools.
The CATO intitute just released a study, referenced here in Rantburg today, that the honest per-pupil spending for the LA Unified School District (total budget divided by students) is over $25,000 per pupil. More than many private schools of much better quality.
So seeing this plea by our Dipsh*t in Chief for more taxpayer money for union teachers.....makes my blood boil the way we are lied to with such ease by the media and politicians....

#5 So, when the financial system finally melts down and we end up with triple-digit inflation, all these public employee unions will start lobbying for the government to step in and save the pensions for which they labored so long and hard.

Then, Stinky Hoyer will be on the Sunday shows complaining that it's all poor old Dubya's fault.

When can we start using RICO statutes on sate and federal lawmakers?

No "lobbying".... lots of looting, burning, and rioting would be my prediction. No one will stand in line for soup this time around.
