    Now there really isn't any more money left,no more can be borrowed,we haven't gotten to the point where we just start printing it like a third world country.But I'm sure that day is coming.Why is everyone having a problem with people asking how are we going to pay for it.

    I see a few differences. One, we didn't have a $13 trillion national debt at that time. Also, how long did they vote to extend them? We are surpassing an extension of over two years now. I don't remember that being the case in the recession following 9-11.

    Ohh I don't know, perhaps the fact that 50 cents of every dollar we spend is BORROWED?
