    Congratulations Barry: 2012 budget deficit exceeds 2011 shortfall

    It was close. A lot of us didn't think he could do it. But we should have realized by now that when it comes to spending money we don't have, Barrack H. Obama is the champion.

    CNS News:


    According to the U.S. Treasury, the debt of the U.S. government climbed by a total of $1,275,901,078,828.74 in fiscal 2012, which ended yesterday.

    That means the federal government borrowed approximately an additional $10,855 for each household in the United States just over the past twelve months.

    The total debt of the United States now equals approximately $136,690 per household.


    ---


    Excuse me, math is not one of my strong subjects but shouldn't the budget deficit be, like, you know, going down every year instead of going up?

    Sorry - my bad. For a minute, I thought we were living in an alternate reality where people actually took things like trillion dollar deficits seriously. I will now return to La-La Land and make happy faces because President Obama has the situation well in hand.

    If the Republicans cared about the deficit they would have accepted the $4 trillion in spending cuts that Obama offered last year. They would not compromise at all.

    The truth is that the Republicans couldn't care less about the deficit. If they did they would have accepted the best they could get. Refusing to accept a 3% tax increase for the wealthest Americans is PURE BULLSHIT!

    They wanted a huge deficit so they could make a big stink about it in the upcoming election.

    'Cause otherwise they got NOTHING!

    I fail to see how no change in the tax margins results in a BIGGER deficit. If taxes didn't go up, then...anyone? Anyone? That's right! SPENDING went up! How the hell did Bush pull that one again? Four years on and he's still at it. He must be the most powerful ex-President in HISTORY!

    Also, if the Clinton tax rates were such an orgasmically good thing for the country, why are you asking only the rich people to enjoy them again?

    This question never gets answered when I ask it.

    Good thing Barry is "focused like a laser" on the economy.......imagine how big the deficit would be if he wasn't there, you know, focusing?

    He's saved us all!!!

    No budget was ever passed.


    Expenditures may have exceeded revenue, but there is no budget.

    Just sayin...

    Too bad that $4 trillion did not include the bloated entitlement system we have.

    Oh sure..the Dumbos were eager to take a whackity whack at Defense and whatnot and jack up taxes, but they have a heart attack if you ask them to sacrifice something.

    And if the Dembulbs gave a shit about the deficit they would have done something about it rather than passing another TAX

    :cuckoo:
