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.<quoted text> Well libtard the debt increased a hell of a lot more fighting WWII. Guess you just would have let Hitler and Tojo take over the world so you could have a balannced budget and no debt. Fight a war, cold or hot, is the function of the federal government. Giving people money or things is not. That is a local or state function. If you libtards weren't so hell bent on the federal government running your lives for you we could come up with real solutions. Most don't involve the federal government.
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?
