    Ryan Backed Stimulus Bill Under President Bush In 2002“What we’re trying to accomplish today with the passage of this third stimulus package is to create jobs and help the unemployed,” Ryan said. “What we’re trying to accomplish is to pass the kinds of legislation that when they’ve passed in the past have grown the economy and gotten people back to work.”
    Ryan voted against the stimulus in 2009, but then requested funds for his home state once the bill had been signed into law. Ryan initially denied having requested stimulus funds, then admitted he had and apologized when confronted with the letters

    His alter ego miss-spoke. The three Bush stimulus packages did not work because they were mainly in tax cuts for big businesses and did not create jobs here. They took the tax cuts and split for China and India a created jobs there.

    True, but then Obama came along and will soon easily eclipse him.

    4 years of trillion dollar deficits, but that isn't Obama's fault. Isn't it amazing how they can spin and bend the truth? :eusa_shhh: What happen to the buck stops here?

    The question is where is the money going? It certainly hasn't gone to help this country.

    The chart in your link is over three years old.

    So this blaming of Bush for the "Deficits Today" business is bunk. That was the deficits of more than three years ago.


    Obama has managed to greatly expand the deficits allllllll by himself since then.



    Nice try.
