You right wing morons just can't wrap your heads around the concept of return on investment. Let's put it more concretely . I f you spend money on a fancy entertainment center for your home then that money you've spent will not give you any return for the few hours a week you actually use it. If you take that same money and invest in energy efficient appliances , more efficient windows or insulation then you realize savings in your energy bills. If a company spends money on redecorating executive offices it doesn't add anything to the bottom line but if they put that money into more machinery and/or more employees it brings more revenue as a result of improved productivity.<quoted text>
So your answer is to spend our way out of debt? With this type of logic one has to wonder can any of you liberals even balance your checkbooks?
Tax cuts, two wars and Medicare part D didn't add anything to the GDP. The Bush tax cuts for the top 5% cost $11.6 million every hour of every day and contrary to GOP dogma haven't added any jobs as a result.
The war in Iraq cost $3 trillion and the only thing we got in return was over 4000 service people coming home in body bags and tens of thousands more maimed both bodily and emotionally who need to be cared for years to come at taxpayer expense.

Medicare part D was a sop to Big Pharma and resulted in seniors paying more for their medications and again increased the deficit with no return to GDP.
Why is it that deficits are only a problem when a Democrat is in the White House?
