    DEBT CREATES MORE DEBT
    if you don’t have a job and no cash coming in.

    President Clinton gave Dead Beat Bush the country's check book with a balance of $127 billion.

    (Bush pushed through tax cuts totaling $1.85 trillion and raised government spending 23 percent in his first four years in office to $2.29 trillion.)
    And Bush took it and spent it and then wrote checks for two wars and a Medicare prescription drug program that he did not have cash to cover. Then on top of that he gave jobs away to other countries and gave blank checks he did not have cash to cover to his bed buddies that did not repay the money. Then at the end of his 8 years of handling the countries check book he handed it over to Obama with $10.7 trillion in overdrawn checks and disappeared.

    (When Obama took office, the debt stood at 10.7 trillion dollars. Its 14.3. trillion as we speak, and it has to go higher to keep the country from collapsing.)
    If we had taken the check book away from Bush we would not be in debt today. What happens when you have a credit card and don’t have a job, you keep asking for a higher credit limit and running the debt up even further. And what happen when you give a check book to someone who cannot balance a check book.

    So Obama took the check book and tried to balance it by collecting the cash that Bush gave his bed buddies for bush’s bed buddies and create jobs but the tea baggers blocked everything he tried to do to balance the country’s check book.

    You cannot balance the countries check book by taking away food and air from the county’s weakest citizens. You need hard cash.

    There is so much Kool Aid in this post that one cannot fathom the mountain of sugary substance that it took to produce such nonsense.

    Know what else Clinton gave Bush? Free trade with China, which only directly destroyed the US middle class.

    Clinton also signed the Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act.

    Republicans have introduced 30 Amendments to make debt illegal. Democrats have killed everyone of them. Do you know why?
