    But during an accounting argument, it’s useful to have real, live numbers to battle over. On the rare occasion Republicans do allude to real stats, they tend to shout about the growing short-term deficit, a problem that has a lot more to do with declining recession-era tax revenues and increasing safety-net outlays than anything Obama has done, or not done. Instead, Republicans should be referring to the amount the president has decided to spend so far: $884 billion. They can say it’s too much, and that a thriftier approach would’ve been better for the country. Democrats can reply that rescuing the U.S. economy from a second Great Depression for less than the price of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan was a relative bargain. Both sides, meanwhile, can debate the wisdom of cutting more than $900 billion in taxes while spending is going up. At least they’ll be arguing about facts, not fantasies.

    Yet another lame-assed reframing of the "we haven't overspent, we've under-taxed" argument.

    ho-hum.

    Fucking amazing. It's basic figures. The facts aren't in dispute, except amongst people immune to reality.

    A better question would be how much did the Bush tax cuts cost the US Treasury?

    Answer: $2.5 Trillion

    But not to worry - what's left of the middle class will get that trickle down urine any minute now. It's all good.

    I'm a conservative, just because I don't jump on the bandwagon and regurgitate rightwinger gospel and lies doesn't make me a damn libtard.
