    The last budget produced by congressional Republicans was in 2007. That year, the deficit was approximately $160 billion. I was disgusted with that., there is simply no reason to spend more than you take in year after year after year. NONE. But it is getting far worse thanks to the Democrat Congress.

    The next year 2008, under the Pelosi-Reid Democratic Congress, the deficit shot up to $458 billion. The next year, in 2009, it was a mind-boggling $1.4 trillion.

    In this new budget, of course, The Democrats and Obama propose to spend $1.6 trillion more than we have! The Democrats are on pace to triple the national debt by 2020. Nice work assholes!!

    No amount of fairy dust, unicorn rides, and "Hopeychangey" feelings can hide these facts. These aren't just abstract numbers on a graph. This is grotesque government spending - and the tax increases that inevitably accompany such spending –will only kill jobs. That is precisely what we don't need right now.

    November cannot come soon enough......

    What are you a comic? You believe that some buffoon knows the future now???

    The Current ReaganBush Debt is: $11,431,553,145,784.50 which means that in a total of 20 years,
    these three presidents have led to the creation of 92.44% of the entire national debt in only 8.547% of the 234 years of the existence of the United States of America.

    "When George W. Bush entered the White House in January 2001, he inherited peace and prosperity. The military, the Constitution and New Orleans were intact and the country had a budget surplus of $128 billion. Now he's about to dash out the door, leaving a large, unpaid bill for his successors to pay."

    Utter nonsense.

    Taxes don't kill jobs. Taxes fund spending and spending is what we need to end the Conservative Recession.

    You don't spend your way out of a recession. It's never worked and it never will. It's that simple. It's a reckless policy.

    Which in no way excuses Obama adding to it at a record pace.

    That's simply nonsense.

    Recessions are caused by a lack of spending and pending is the only way to get out of a recession.

    It's not quite that simple and I don't have time to give you an economics lesson right now, though I doubt you'd learn anything from it anyway.

    In fact, it is that simple.

    Spending is the only way out.

    Let that be the first lesson of your reeducation.

    I have almost completed my MBA. I assure you I know what I'm talking about. There are several factors that go into what create and end various economic cycles.

    You are possibly the biggest ignoramus in economics on this board. Gov't can only spend money one place by taking it from another place. Gov't spending has never worked to end recession. This time will be no different.
