Republicans so worried about the debt, yet they cause most of it.

    Sure...the War on Poverty was working just fine. Until Conservatives took over in 1980 and had to put a stop to that because it was undermining their argument that government is the problem. So Conservatives got elected and proved government is the problem by virtue of their shit policies. I see the pverty rate dropping like a rock during and after the Great Society Legislation. Then it shoots upward beginning right when Reagan was sworn in and doesn't return to the pre-Reagan rate until the end of Clinton's term before shooting back up again, thanks to Bush the Dumber and the Conservative know-nothings.

    Why does the debt bother you so much? You realize we've carried a debt load since the 1840's, right? The debt will never, ever be fully paid off and pretending that it will by way of tax cuts (!) is irresponsible.

    Why does the debt concern you so much? We've had a debt load since the 1840's, yet you're only screeching about debt as of 1/20/09. So how come you suddenly found Jesus on the debt after Bush doubled it? Where was all your debt outrage then? Nowhere. Because it's bullshit.

    Explain how that would happen with the US' economy. Tell me exactly how the US would default on its debt. The only way that would happen is if Conservatives refused to raise the debt ceiling. That's the only way we default, from actions you shitbrains take.

    Because it was Obama that caused Bush to submit 1.3T Deficit budget for 2009. :rolleyes:

    Time to wake up and smell reality:

    So you think that the US will default on its debt, and that's why you get all worked up? The only way the US defaults on its debt is if the debt ceiling isn't raised. There is no other way we can default. Now, who are those who don't want to raise the debt ceiling? Conservatives. And why? Because they don't want more debt and to avoid a default, yet Conservatives are the ones who threaten to not raise the debt celing all the time. So if we did default, it would only be because Conservatives caused it to happen.

    Yeah, to pay for Bush's 2 wars off the books, Bush's unfunded Medicare part D, Bush's bankster bailout, and Bush's tax cut which blew the Clinton surplus.

    Well, since that's been central to your platform since 1980, no...it's not worn out. What's worn out are the claims that cutting taxes create growth, create jobs, and reduce deficits. None of those three things have ever happened from a trickle-down tax cut.
