    Yesterday we heard from D. Patrick on the Sunday morning talk shows how well MA is doing w/their finances.
    MA debt = $100,403,841, 500+
    MA Revenue = $63, 633, 528, 500+
    MA Spending = $76,690,620,500+
    Food Stamp Recipients = 906,930
    We also learned the sequester number Obama is talking about is not a annual number. It is over 2 years.
    IF EVERY WORKING AMERICAN CAN TAKE A HIT OF 2% SO CAN OUR FED GOVT.. Stop trying to scare people Obama. Most people see through your lies.

      The plan is in place. It was voted on by the House and the Senate then signed by Obama.
      Now we get to see if the government can exist on 2% less like most of the working Americans who were hit with at least a 2% tax in January, including high earners who were hit with a 4.6% increase.
      Even libs (who acknowledge working people were just hit with a tax increase) should be upset wit the lies coming out of the WH, especially given the fact that Obama just gave Congress, federal workers and the VP a pay raise in December. Why isn't the press talking about this??? Never mind, we all know why... Libs, tell us again how the press isn't bias?

        John....Federal workers did not receive a pay increase in December. Don't know where you got that information.

        @John – I'm a federal worker, we did not get a raise (3rd year). And I'm not complaining about it because I know everyone is taking a hit. There were promises that turned out to be renigged on. Just wanted to clarify that. But you are right in that the heads of gov did get raises. They have a bill to ensure they get their raises although there have been a few congressman that have disputed this for the very reasons you spoke of. It's very frustrating for everyone.

    According to recent Bloomberg News poll a majority of Americans want Congress to stop the looming forced spending cuts from going into effect. Fifty-four percent want Congress to delay the cuts, while 40% say the government should go ahead and allow the cuts to kick in.

    this meeting will be very beneficial for our country because economical security of families is dependent on this meeting between governors and obama. it will be educational for all, specially for governors with respect to long term and short term effects on our country. long term plan hurt the nation as short term planning but sometimes short term planning can can help long term planning and not always vice versa. unless people are immediately taken care of, long term planning may not be possible. so it will be best to listen to what obama says, then ponder on it before voting. obama is knowledgeable, educated president with much insight. obama appears to be a good servant of americal people.
