    I still cannot get over how we are going from a budget deficit of $162 billion in 2007 to a projected deficit of $1.7652 TRILLION in 2009.

    Ladies and gentlemen, this is absolute political madness initiated by a president and Congress bereft of common sense, to say nothing of common decency.

    Absolutely appalling.

    You got that right. But this will fall under the 'Bush inheritance', just wait for it. FWIW, congress never seems to possess a lot of common sense.

    someone had to fix the mess he made. I for one HATE that this is necessary.... but sitting on your hands and saying 2.5 million people should lose their jobs and the banks and auto makers should collapse is really a recipe for disaster....

    actually, no ... they couldn't.....

    no 60 senate seats = filibuster

    bush as president = veto

    sorry... this one's on you guys.

    you're talking about a 1 senator difference like it mattered... and the 1 senator was Lieberman.

    I am still waiting to see specific examples of how Obama and the Democrat DOMINATED Congress has done anything to actually "fix this mess".

    The fact you don't have a quick response to share regarding that proves you are off looking for one, which proves you are simply blindly accepting this MASSIVE increase in the national debt - and increase that is likely to be far more than the Obama projections because those projections are based upon considerable economic growth that most economists believe to be unlikely.

    How could anyone so blindly accept such spending without actually looking into the facts to support it?

    That kind of intellectual apathy is exactly why this nation is in such a mess today.

    C'mon Jillian!
