    “I’m very concerned about it. Particularly on the entitlement side, the mandatory spending side, which is where most of the money is. And that’s something that the president has not had a particular interest in doing anything about,” acknowledged Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.), the party whip. “We’re going to end up spending more than a lot of Republicans, I’m sure, would like. But that’s what it’s going to take to get a deal.”

    Rebuilding our nation from the destruction by Obama is going to be expensive....there is nothing more costly to a nation than liberal socialist leaders....Socialism comes with a price tag libs...when it fails which it always does there is a mess to clean up after....that clean up is costly.....but keep calm we are bringing in record number of dollars into the treasury each day.....wait until California wakes up and boots out the progs...then the clean up will begin and it will bankrupt the state....

    We've been running debt for 225 of our 243 years.

    If you owe on a $300,000 house, you don't worry about it if you're making $250,000 per year.

    The debt is approximately 21 trillion. GDP is 19 trillion per year. Relax.

    Simply amazing how the same people howled at the moon about debt and spending for 8 years straight now think it is the best thing since sliced bread.

    And the day their god leaves the White House it will matter yet once again.
