    WHAT THE GOP DOESN’T WANT YOU TO KNOW ABOU THE DEFICIT.

    The Deficit Has Grown Mostly Because Of The Recession

    The deficit has ballooned not because of specific spending measures, but because of the recession. The deficit more than doubled between 2008 and 2009, as the economy was in free fall, since laid-off workers paid less in taxes and needed more benefits. The deficit then shrank in 2010 and 2011.

    Actually, no. The deficit has grown because our politicians want to spend more money than we take in in revenues.

    One reason the deficit has grown that OBAMA doesn't want to talk about -- is that Soc Sec went NEGATIVE in 2010.. Now contributes over $40Bill a year in DEFICIT.. So poor dear leader now has a NATURAL $80Bill difference in baseline budgeting that he helped create by STEALING from the Soc Sec premiums to hand out tax breaks..
