    The tax cuts & wars were a debt BINGE. A lot of that money went out of the US; it will take decades to regain the lost revenue. State taxes, fees, costs, and assessments went up to cover the Federal cuts but state & local governments cannot tax as efficiently.

    Sometimes you people really do just crack me I just love how so many of you seem to think the deficit started with either Bush or Obama. Both men have contributed to it but it started long before either of them were President.
