You assholes didn't give a flying fuck about the deb/deficit when Barry the Boiking was running the show, so spare us all your phaux concern now.

That's true. Democrats were never as concerned as the Conservatives pretended to be. Because they were wrong gives Conservatives the OK to be as wrong?
Conservatives continue to be concerned about the debt/deficit and have spoken out against it during Trumps administration.

You equate the fact that we haven't been heard to not having voiced the complaint and that would be a wrong thing to do.

No one is speaking up over the debt. Trump has run the debt to record numbers and you'll vote again for that.

It was the CONGRESS who made and passed the bills, Trump has three choices in dealing with congressionally passed legislation.

Always with the excuses. Even at that Trump's first two years were all GOP.

Trump signed off on it all.

Sigh,

I stated the facts, didn't excuse anyone. Heck I even showed that Trump had the opportunity to veto it, one of three possible actions.

Now that Democrats CURRENTLY have all three branches, have they greatly changed the massive congressionally inspired overspending habit?

Snicker......

Of course not. You expected them to do what Trump wouldn't do?

Anything you ignore from your politicians will only get worse with the next.

I haven't ignored the fact that neither party have any interest in being fiscally rational or responsible.

It is one of the reasons why I am a free thinking Independent.

I have no "politicians" favorite list.

That's because both sides do the same thing Democrats don't really care about the deficit unless a republican is president and Republicans don't give a shit about it until a Democrat takes over.

But as an independent does it take side was either retarded party, I would like to point out that Obama had cut the deficit in half compared to what it was under Bush during the recession. It have started going up at the end of his presidency but I never got anywhere near as high as it was under Bush or Trump once it started going back down.

I would also like to point out that the Democrats don't really care about the deficit because they have a economic view that deficits are not inherently bad. they believe that spending money on things like infrastructure and other things that prove the country are worth going into debt.

Republicans on the other hand, plane that the deficit is bad in that the economy should run out of a balance without any debt ever and then they turn around cut taxes while boosting spending on things they like 5 billions of dollars and thus create a larger.

it's been Republicans over the years that have added more to the debt than anyone else Reagan did this I have to both bushes and Trump.

Don’t worry the clowns all tell us deficits will be cured when taxes are raised. Where have you heard that before?

Funny, LK, whatever concerns folks had for the deficit under Trump have all been totally blown out of the water by Biddum's spending.

He's out to show Obammy he can blow trillions in a wink, too.

So you have no problem with Biddum spending 6 trillion dollars because he's a democrat?

ou assholes didn't give a flying fuck about the deb/deficit when Barry the Boiking was running the show, so spare us all your phaux concern now.

The debt was less than $1 trillion before Reagans tax cuts and military spending quadrupled it. We had a budget surplus in 2000, with the debt on its way to be paid down, thanks to Bill Clintons iniatives, before W. immediately created another $1 trillion deficit, and VP Dick Cheney said that deficits didn't matter. Of which after 8 years of more failed fiscal conservatism resulted in the worst economic recession since the Great Depression. At which time Obama's iniatives shrank the deficit to $400 billion, created 78 straight months of job growth, and a 142% increase in the stock market, before the biggest criminal failure ever to be elected couldn't contain a global pandemic that killed over 600,000 Americans on his watch, creating the worst unemployment since the Great Depression.

But conservatives are very fucking stupid, so the country can count on them to sink America even further when they get power back again. Which given the population change, and the advent of communications technology, will be their last hurrah, before aging millenials, and the next generation put them out of their misery, and the rest of the worlds once and for all.

Thanks to the Internet Bubble. And Gingrich holding the line on spending.

Which of his "initiatives" were involved?

Now back to blaming Reagan....JFC.....Though he did in fact get the ball rolling, not a one of your team's hacks has done one fucking thing to stop the debt snowball.

There was no "balanced budget" in 1998, nor was there any surplus....It was only projected to come into balance -and possibly go into surplus- in 2002, just like Ross Perot had already told everyone was going to happen back in 1992.

That your dear Boiking marginallyly reduced the amount of deficit doesn't mean that there still wasn't one...He still piled $10 trillion onto the debt....He also presided over the Fed pumping over $4 trillion in fake value into Wall Street.

There's not a goddamn dime's worth of difference between you and the neocon Bushbots....Not one thin dime.
