This is going to be Obama's legacy. Not President Bushes.

Those of us who read know the same Headline came out of Cuba just a few days ago, and why did this happen?

Simple, Communism, Socialism, Marxism, Obamanism, they are interchangeable when it comes to the ultimate destruction of any economy.

"From each according to his ability, to each according to his need'" is a slogan popularized by Karl Marx and is the essence of Obama's redistribution of wealth.

I believe it has become as clear as can be that Obama's ideology grew out of a life time of exposure to radical Socialism/Marxism/Black Liberation Theology, that at their core is Anti-Americanism.

We are headed to more unemployment and complete economic collapse if we do not stop the "Trifecta of Doom" Obama, Pelosi, Reid, and remove from office the Obama disciples who follow his every whim as though he was normal and didn't suffer from a really bad case of lack of mental acuity.

BBC News - Spending Review 2010: George Osborne wields the axe

Chancellor George Osborne has unveiled the biggest UK spending cuts for decades, with welfare, councils and police budgets all hit.

The pension age will rise sooner than expected, some incapacity benefits will be time limited and other money clawed back through changes to tax credits and housing benefit.

A new bank levy will also be brought in - with full details due on Thursday.

Mr Osborne said the four year cuts were guided by fairness, reform and growth.

Mr Osborne ended his hour-long Commons statement by claiming the 19% average cuts to departmental budgets were less severe than expected. This is thanks to an extra £7bn in savings from the welfare budget and a £3.5bn increase in public sector employee pension contributions.

According to economists, there is a concern that such large cuts are going to plunge the UK back into a recession.

According to "economists", this recession wasn't going to happen.

So Obama is going to promote communism by getting rid of government jobs? You sir, are simply absurd. Your ability to make a rational argument compares unfavorably with a herring, so all I can do is bid you "Good day".

I'd have to agree. Now, cutting government jobs is communist, socialist, whatever. Isn't that what the Tea Party is advocating for? Um, who knew the Tea Party was actually a socialist organization in disguise. Count me fooled. :)

Reducing government is increasing government.

Got it.

I read this in a stereotypical Rich British Guy accent and it was pretty hilarious.

We have a huge debt but most of the credit agencies still think we'll recover from this - so "broke" isn't the right term for the UK.

Our central and local Govt have become far too big over recent years and though it has provided jobs in many cities that needed it - we need to focus on the productive and manufacturing sectors of our economy.

Going through half a dozen interviews in competition with your colleagues to keep your own job is a fantastic team-building experience.

You know - he hasn't been redistributing any wealth. More so, he's just been robbing our future blind and then just throwing it away without it benefiting anyone.

If our government wants to downsize they can do so with all the agencies they've created.
