Let me explain this real s l o w. It is the federal government's job to conduct war. It is not the federal government's job to fix the economy, give people money, health insurance, food stamps, housing, or a phone. That is a state and local problem. I know you will not understand this but the country is not one great big government. Per the constitution the states are sovereign entities. We need to get back to the constitution before you libtards ruin this great country with your socialist ideals.<quoted text>
So, war is a valid excuse to run up the debt even if there really isn't a real war but a cold war. Under Reagan, there were entitlements. There were programs to help people But you gave them a pass because of the cold war.
Is this why you give Bush a pass for doubling the debt?
But today, the two wars inherited by Obama doesn't buy him a pass. Why not, We are at war?
Why do you give Reagan a pass on debt because of the cold war & not Obama for the Iraq, Afghanistan wars & Al Qaeda?
I understand the need for deficit spending at given times. We have crisis situations including economic disasters.
We had an economic crisis occur in 2008. WTF can't you give Obama a pass on debt like you did Reagan?
