This pretty much sums it up.
RealClearPolitics - Why the Left Doesn't Care about $9.7 Trillion Debt
Of course high debt levels don't bother Progressives. Big Debt fuels Big Government - it furthers their cause.
This won't end well for the Libs
The real question is why did the right "create" such a debt?
2.5 trillion tax cut
3 trillion in war
trillion stimulus package
Who knows how much wasted on Katrina cleanup that never happened?
Who know how much their drug package cost?
Then the left get's stuck with this mess. Worse, the Republicans, the very people who created this disaster, think they know how to clean it up? Are they insane?
Uh. Debt is created by spending more than is collected in tax receipts.
We don't have a lack of tax problem; we have a spending problem.
The right didn't create the Trillion Stimulus Package.
Bush put in the Bailout. which wasn't even a Trillion..
You got it mixed up.. Obama was the one who put in the Stimulus.
Are you conceding that the right will not have political power until 2020?
or that none of the existing debt was contributed by right wing policies?
Like the right cares so much when billions and billions were going to wars.
Reagan increased the national debt by 20%. Bush I increased it by 12%. Clinton reduced it 7%. Bush II increased it by 12%. Your question: "Why the left doesn't care about $9.7 trillion debt?" should probably be:
Why does the right run up the debt and then expect the left to solve the problems created by their running up the debt??
The continual denial from lefties on here is sadly unsurprising but breathtakingly stupid. What I find incredible is that not one of them seems to care about the continued out of control spending. What Bush did or did not do is of no relevance. We are where we are and we need to stop it.... but instead of recognizing that, they just go back to their usual cries of 'But, but, but..... BOOOOOOOOSH!' God Almighty, why can the left not smarten up?
