Just TEST one-of-them!!!
Shaman is right, as usual, Obama and the Dems made the debt too big. We can't cut anything without bringing about a new Ice Age.
Over half of the deficit we have now was there before Obama was inaugurated.
The programs the republicans want to cut? Privatize $ocial $ecurity or anything but defense.
So... Obama, in two fucking years doubled the national debt incurred since George Washington???????
How long have they been in session? Did you want a full blown plan by the GOP yesterday?
We tried passing bills w/o reading them already, that hasn't worked out so well. So how about we give it 2 weeks, after they are in session, to come out with a well thought out plan.
Prepare for it to be brutal. I know I'm prepared. I have the perfect crackers and cheese that go with liberal flavored whine.
Simple answer: All of them.
The numbers below do NOT reflect the actual National Debt. Instead, they reflect the amount of the INCREASE in the National Debt during each presidential term.
> Ronald Reagan’s First Term – $656 billion increase
> Ronald Reagan’s Second Term – $1.036 trillion increase
> George H.W. Bush’s Term – $1.587 trillion increase
> Bill Clinton’s First Term – $1.122 trillion increase
> Bill Clinton’s Second Term – $418 billion increase
> George W. Bush’s First Term – $1.885 trillion increase
> George W. Bush’s Second Term – $3.014 trillion increase
> Barack Obama’s First “Year” – $1.573 trillion increase
To summarize, the National Debt increased by huge amounts under each of these presidents. The largest increase for a complete term occured during George W. Bush’s second term. The largest increse during a single year occurred during Barack Obama’s first year.
Current Obama administration projections indicate that the National Debt will increase by approximately $6.5 trillion during President Obama’s first term. If that happens, then he will obviously overtake President Bush’s record increase in the National Debt.
It is clear that the National Debt has been growing uncontrollably in recent years, regardless of which political party has been in power. To reverse this trend, we need to hold our elected officials accountable and demand that they balance the budget and reduce the National Debt.

There's a difference between debt and deficit you know...
How about all of them. And while they are at it, they can shit can about 25% of all federal workers. We don't need 2 million non-military federal workers.
Wingnuts don't know the difference between budget deficits and the national debt
