    First off, it's clear that the president doesn't want to, and you're being kind of an ass to imply that he does. He very clearly wants to balance the budget, and largely on the backs of the poor and the middle class. So really, what you disagree with him about is, presumably, the pace.

    But don't worry, we're working on that, too. He's promised more cuts, and more tax increases, and soon. Which will almost certainly cause further weakening in our economy, which will in turn cause further decreases in tax revenues. Which will in turn cause further cuts. That's what you people want, right? More cuts? More austerity?

    After all, it's going so great for Ireland and Greece, who wouldn't want it here?
