Obama has increased government spending less than any president in at least a generation.

Republican campaign strategists may lie, but the numbers don’t. Government spending, when adjusted for inflation, has increased during his administration (to date) by 1.4%. Under George W. Bush, the increases were 7.3% (first term) and 8.1% (second term). Bill Clinton, in his two terms, comes in at 3.2% and 3.9%. George H. W. Bush increased government spending by 5.4%, while Ronald Reagan added 8.7% and 4.9% in his two terms.

Not only does Obama turn out to be the most thrifty president in recent memory, but the evidence shows that Republican administrations consistently increased government spending significantly more than any Democratic administration. Go figure.

So you are in favor of smaller government? LOL, sure you are.

Constitution of the United States of America said:
No Money shall be drawn from the Treasury, but in Consequence of Appropriations made by Law

Lest some forget...

You are so full of it it is coming out your ears!



Who would have thought 60 years ago when I was a child growing up in NYC that a President would be elected in the future and then allowed to intentionally flaunt our Constitution and weaken America from within?


The sad truth is, Obama has doubled the federal debt;


He has given aid and comfort to our enemies by releasing them from GITMO;


He is allowing a thousand Islamic "refugees" into the U.S. each month without a requirement to renounce their allegiance to their country of origin, and swear an allegiance to the United States:


He has transferred America’s weapons of defense and military technology to hostile Islamic leaders [the Islamic Brother Hood];


He has allowed our southern border to be invaded by the poverty stricken populations of Mexico and Central America;


He is responsible for undermining our election process by making it easy for ineligible persons to vote;


He has interfered with our nation’s ability to develop our natural resources, namely oil, coal and natural gas to fuel our economy;


He has worked to stifle America’s agricultural industry and ability to produce food under the guise of environmental necessity;


He has intentionally sabotaged our nation’s health care delivery system:


He has blatantly impinged upon the American People’s inalienable right to make their own choices and decisions regarding their health care and medical needs;


He is responsible for a dramatic increase in the number of people receiving food stamps;


He is responsible for a dramatic drop in fulltime employment;


He is responsible for a dramatic increase in the unemployment rate of our nation’s Black youth;


He has used the force of our federal government to tax the paychecks of hard working people living in our nation’s inner cities and then transfer $ billions from our federal treasury to his inner circle friends under the guise of “green energy” [Solyndra/Chevy Volt/Fisker, Exelon, etc.];


He has repeatedly circumvented of our Republican Form of Government by issuing Executive Orders and memorandums;


He has stood by and allowed his Administration to use the force of the federal government to attack "conservatives" who dare to exercise their right to freedom of speech;



All in all, who can truthfully deny Obama is intentionally attempting to destroy America from within?


JWK



When will the America People realize we have an Islamic cell operating out of our nation's White House? Will they come to this conclusion when Islamic terrorist activities begin in our southern Border States or cities like New York City?

National deficit when Obama took over --------------- 1.2T
National deficit today -------------------------------------- 0.48T
National deficit when Obama leaves ------------------- 0.56T

Government's not like a car where you can just hit the brakes. And as a percentage of GDP, this the fastest drop in deficit spending since WWII. If you think "deficits don't matter" Republicans could do better, you're not paying attention.

Are you trying to sell the idea that Democrats are more fiscally conservative than Republicans? Does anyone actually buy this crap?



Nothing to "sell". Look at the numbers. If you have different "evidence" for the same time frames, post it up.

OK, so you must be "fiscally conservative" too? Please describe the "fiscally conservative" policies you support.

P.S. Which political party supports, and which opposes, a Balanced Budget Amendment?

Probably not. How about the 2 trillion to be spent on all that medical care for wounded vets that Bush gave us. Is that included?

I still don't know exactly how much the Bush Prescription drug plan (that he used to buy the old people vote) how much that costs. Do you know?

And have we paid for the Bush wars? Do you know? How much were they?

All that money wasted.
