Kerry and his wife are living off a dead Republicans money. Typical.
Clinton had the benefit of a surging period of economic growth fueled by the Tech bubble, and a Republican congress elected with a mandate to balance the budget.
Obama will leave this nation even further in debt that anyone can imagine, and in ruins.
You are all fools if you vote for him, and get what you deserve.
You mean like Reagan and Bush did?
In 1981, the national debt was 997,855,000,000.00. By the time Reagan left office, the debt was 2,602,337,712,041.16.
When Dubyah took office, the national debt was 5,674,178,209,886.86. As of right now the national debt is 10,024,724,896,912.49. Add about 3 trillion dollars worth of bailout money to that final figure.
Please, don't tell me how a Democrat will spend, spend, spend when it's been Republicans who keep doubling our national debt every time they're in office.
Compared to reagan bush and bush 2.
What you are referring to is the fact that rich bankers figured out how to take over the us by starting the federal reserve. Add up all our income taxes and we only pay off interest on the federal debt. The more we owe, the more they own us. So for 8 yrs now the mega rich corporations and top 1 percent weren't contributing as much, so as the debt doubled, we all now owe more. And $1 isn't really worth a dollar anymore.
So add up the taxes we lost when lehman and other firms found a trillion in offshore loopholes, and the irs looked the other way.
All those firms got bailed out. All the ceo's got golden parachutes. $700 billion bailout right at the end? And people want 4 more yrs occupation in iraq for $10 bill a month and wonder why the economy is bad?
So obama will spend, in america. His programs will help many americans. The gop spends on defense. That's socialism. How about invest in car manufacturing? People buy cars, governments buy defense. We need to cut defense spending in half and end bush buddy sweetheart deals.
Reagan and Bush are responsible for 90% of the National Debt.
You're not answering me.
I run a business, I make a projected estimate on how much income I will have this year and make a budget based upon that projection. My expenses will never outweigh my income, because that would just be silly. Are you telling me that the most powerful country in the entire world cannot hire a good accountant to balance its books?
The national debt increased every single year under Bill Clinton. The budget went before the United States congress, they passed it, you sign it. If the budget isn't balanced, you don't sign the bill.
If you want to remain unknown, stop using the same tired old links umm errr Chris!!
