The government is not a charitable organization. It'a role is to provide a safety net but is not the collective conscious of the people.

Chavez had the same message as Obama and misguided liberals. Once in power, he began confiscating people's businesses in the name of "charity".

Do liberals on here really think that is compassion?
Haiti earthquake: send by government:$100 million

Sent by Republican Conservative churches:$400 million.

But in the fantasy mind of the Liberals, Republicans want them dead that is why they sent so much money!

True. It has always been said history cannot be written until all those involved are gone.

A new fresh look is being taken of FDR's policies, EOs and even his economics.

A book called 'FDR Follies' outlines how his policies painfully extend the Depression for years.

Lerner, who was moved to Obamacare part of the IRS, previously held Miller's position. Prior to that she was a member of the FEC where her behavior of harassing those organizations not favorable to Progressive is well documented as well as the over-the-top extremes she pushes.
" FEC attorneys continued their intrusion into religious activities by prying into what occurs at Coalition staff prayer meetings, and even who attends the prayer meetings held at the Coalition. This line of questioning was pursued several times. Deponents were also asked to explain what the positions of “intercessory prayer” and “prayer warrior” entailed, what churches speci&#64257;c people belonged, and the church and its location at which a deponent met Dr. Reed."

Sound familiar? She continued these tactic at the IRS.
Lerner needs to brought before Congress and she ultimately needs to resign.
There's no proof . Lerner has never had any history of 'harassment' at the IRS .[ "NOT found in the IG’s report:

Any evidence that “Tea Party” related groups were identified during this process for nefarious reasons;
Any type of identification, political or otherwise, for the groups whose applications were similarly flagged and delayed (“Tea Party” related groups made up only a minority, approximately 1/3 of the groups whose applications were delayed and held for further examination);
Any indication or evidence whatsoever that the White House, or anybody outside of the IRS units handling these cases, had anything to do with what happened;
Any response to the other question the IG’s office was tasked by Congress to investigate, namely:“whether existing social welfare organizations are improperly engaged in a substantial, or even predominant, amount of campaign activity.”]Check this out: http://www.salon.com/2013/05/16/wheres_the_ir...

In 1981, the supply-siders commandeered the Reagan Presidency and employed their Voodoo economics, as Bush senior had called it in 1980. He was saying that tax cuts would not increase government revenues. As you can see on the graph above (get it on your smartphone app info), the Voodoo failed just as Bush predicted, and the supply-siders turned a 32-year winning streak into a debt disaster that continues to this day. For 20 years, under Reagan and the Bushes, the national debt increased compared to GDP every single year. In most other years it decreased. Twenty years in a row can't be just an accident, but to understand you need to learn the voodoo strategy.(Why graph Debt / GDP ?)

What's causing today's huge deficits? Deficit basics. Top 4 deficit causes.

Bush senior fought against supply-side debt, so the Republicans didn't support him and he lost to Clinton, who put an end to supply-side economics. G. W. Bush brought it back full strength, with V.P. Cheney saying "Reagan proved deficits don't matter." Currently supply-siders are in full control of the Republican party.

What about Obama? Notice how the debt accelerated during Bush's last two budget years. Obama's debt is a continuation of that trend and neither Bush nor Obama are directly responsible for that acceleration. It happened because of the recession. Bush set the all-time record by increasing the debt by $1.1 trillion in 100 days between July 30 and Nov 9, 2008—but that had little to do with his choices.

Recessions cut tax revenues—in this case, dramatically. That accounts for nearly half of the deficit. So blaming Obama for the full deficit is like blaming him for not raising the tax rate to keep tax revenues up. Most of the increased spending is automatic increases in unemployment benefits, food stamps, and social security payments for early retirement. Very little of it is from stimulus spending, and that's over.

The green line shows what would have happened to the national debt if Reagan and the Bushes had balanced their budgets as Reagan claimed he would. G.W. Bush, in all modesty, claimed he would "retire nearly $1 trillion in debt over the next four years. This will be the largest debt reduction ever achieved by any nation at any time."

Republicans are quite embarrassed by this performance, so they have invented a cover story: The Democratic Congress did it. Nice try. But for 12 of the 20 years the Congress was not Democratic. Also, presidents can veto, and when it was Democratic, Congress passed smaller budgets on average than the Republican Presidents asked for. Presidents propose the budget, and they have the most influence. Check it out.

The Election. ZFacts' new Reality App has this graph, amazing facts (e.g. who ran the debt up by more than $1 trillion in 100 days), and much more. To see and install it on your mobile, browse to zFacts.com/vote . If you're on a PC/Mac click here.

If Romney is elected, the debt will continue to rise the same reasons it went up under Reagan — more military spending and tax cuts for the rich. Obama will follow Clinton's path, but will have a harder time of it, because this recession is far worse than the one Clinton faced when he took office.

Interesting read, but you all just keep blaming Obama for all the debt.
