    The bush balanced budget plan

    I am a grumpy old man, to keep my blood flowing, I often listen to Sean
    Hannity. Sean always mentions Obamas promise to cut the deficit in half.
    That always gets my blood boiling.
    Didn't brain-dead Reagan promise a balanced budget by 1984?
    On the day of the second presidential debate, media whore Tom Brokaw
    said Obama will have to answer for his trillion dollar deficits.

    Lets see what caused these deficits.
    Like Clinton sez, it's only math.

    SUMMARY TABLES
    http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/BUDGET-2009-BUD/pdf/BUDGET-2009-BUD-31.pdf

    Bush Balanced
    Budget Baseline
    2009 . ...Projected.....Actual ....Difference
    Receipts...2,700 .......2,105 .....-595
    Outlays....3,107 .......3,518 .....+411
    Deficit .....-407 ......-1,413

    Bush
    2010 . ...Projected.....Actual ....Difference
    Receipts...2,931 .......2,163 .....-768
    Outlays....3,091 .......3,456 .....+365
    Deficit .....-160 ......-1,293

    2011 . ...Projected.....Actual ....Difference
    Receipts...3,076 .......2,304 .....-772
    Outlays....3,171 .......3,603 .....+432
    Deficit ......-95 ......-1.300

    2012 . ...Projected.....Actual ....Difference
    Receipts...3,270 .......2,450 .....-820
    Outlays....3,222 .......3,540 .....+318
    Deficit ......+48 .......1,090

    Deficit .-1,413 .-1.293 .-1.300 .-1,090 =-5.096
    Receipts ..-595 ...-768 ...-772 ...-820 =-2.955
    Outlays ...+411 ,.,+365 ...+432 ...+318 =+1.526

    As can be seen the collapse of the bush supply side scam resulted in
    revenues coming in almost three trillion dollars less
    than the bush balanced budget projections.

    Spending came in about one and one half trillion above the bush balanced
    budget projections.

    Blame the black guy for spending three trillion dollars that he never got.
    For Republicans, Lying is a way of life.

    Much of the spending increase was the result of the Bush recession that
    lost almost nine million jobs.
    The recession caused large increases in Medicaid, Social Security
    retirements, food stamps, and Unemployment compensation.


    National Defense:

    2008 ---616,073
    2012 ---676.687 ___+60.614

    Medicaid:

    2008 ---247,739
    2012 ---364.755 ___+117.016

    Medicare:

    2008 ---390,758
    2012 ---499.284 ___+108.526

    Unemployment compensation:

    2008 ---45,340
    2012 --107.080 ___+61.740

    Food and nutrition assistance:

    2008 ---60,673
    2012 --114.975 ___+54.302

    Social Security:

    2008 --617,027
    2012 --781.172 ___+164.145

    Total ------------+566.225

    For Republicans, Lying is a way of life.

    Lol. The Clinton economy was in the black because the Republicans held the purse strings. The economy starting tanking under democratic control of those purse strings during the Bush admin. The President doesn't spend the money slick, Congress doles out the cash.

    Obama: ‘We Got Back Every Dime’ of Bailout; CBO: Bailout Will Lose $24 Billion


    Obama:


    “We got back every dime we used to rescue the financial system, but we also passed a historic law to end taxpayer-funded Wall Street bailouts for good,” Obama said in Miami Thursday.

    The Congressional Budget Office--based on figures from Obama’s own Office of Management and Budget---gives a different assessment.

    The GOP Congress in the 90's couldn't bust the budget because of PAYGO and because Clinton wasn't going to let them have the kind of budget busting tax cuts that they really wanted. As soon as Bush was elected, he let PAYGO expire and started tax cutting and borrowing and spending like a lunatic.

    Why don't you tell us how the Democratic Congress tanked the economy in 2007,

    in terms that remotely resemble legitimate cause and effect. And make sure you show us how Bush, who was still president, was powerless to prevent the Congress from CAUSING THE RECESSION.

    NO what I am saying is what I already said. However I will make an addition.

    You are so fuking partisan and full of hate (as are most rethugs) that you can't accept responsibility or place blame on anything that a rethug does.

    You want to claim that the surplus Clinton left Bush (which of course you will claim there was never a surplus, no matter how many economists say there was) was the result of the Rethugs in Congress. Cool. I am sure they played their part.

    But you will claim Bush did nothing wrong in his 8 long years and I wouldn't be surprised if you next claim that Bush left Obama a thriving, vibrant economy. With virtually no debt.

    Or if you do acknowledge that the economy was in a mess at the end of Bush, you will claim it was all the Dems in Congress's fault.

    Right or wrong on the above statements?

    It's like when something good happens under a Dem Presidency, it was the rethugs in the congress.

    When something bad happens under a Rehtug president, it becomes the fault of the Dems in Congress.

    Do you Rethgus ever take responsibility for your own actions? Or do you blame anyone and everyone else for your fukups?
