The Hells kitchen chef's Pelosi and Reid cooked-up and produced nothing but poison, since 2007 losing 750,000 jobs per month, the worst recession in 80 years, controlling the purse strings, a Housing Collapse, a near financial meltdown, tripling the debt, two quagmire wars Clinton started that Kerry and Clinton democRats voted for before they were against you ignorant dumbass...

AND... Hair Balls for brains Hairy Reid is still cooking-up more poison and hate for America when W was and left office, something, an overdose of poison even a sellout obama still can't recover from today you complete idiot...

We only need what comes to us.
Why do you believe our military, air controllers and intelligence agencies should keep you safe if you are not willing to pay for the service?

Why do you believe you should be allowed to travel our interstate highways or enjoy our national parks and monuments if you are not willing to pay for the opportunity?

Why do you believe you should be allowed to profit from a vibrant economic system that you are willing to support?

Why do you believe that the elderly who have an earned right to collect social security should be fleeced by people like you?

America is not the place for people with bottomless pockets. If you can't gladly and fairly support this great country then, it is YOU who is coveting that which does not belong to you. You are no better than the common thief. You will screw people over six ways to Sunday to protect your precious pocketbook while expecting everyone else except you to pay for the privilege of living in America...and IT IS a privilege.

If you can't bring yourself to pay for the privilege, you really should find a place more suitable to pathologically selfish, egotistical, narcissists.

The thief's mentality: "It’s not us. It’s them."

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.
Uh dude, the democrats reneged on their spending cuts. Letting people keep more of their hard earned money is always a good idea unless you are a libtard progressive. the problem with this country is the progressive have turned government (all 4) into a big money vacuum cleaner. You want the poor to get richer get rid of all the oppresive taxes. My bet say you will have no clue how this works!

Not true. Decisions regarding end of life care are made by doctors...not the government. My brother died in January. He had medicare. I discussed with the doctors all his options and it was I, NOT the government, NOT the doctors who made the decision to return him home under hospice care where he died with dignity while I held his hand. This is the third time I have been down this road.

I wish each and everyone of you ReTHUGS would have to go down this road at least once...good luck getting the "government" to make that end of life decision for you.

Michelle Obama’s Princeton classmate is executive at company that built Obamacare website
Posted on October 25, 2013 by Cowboy Byte
First Lady Michelle Obama’s Princeton classmate is a top executive at the companythat earned the no-bid contract to build the failed Obamacare website.
Toni Townes-Whitley, Princeton class of ’85, is senior vice president at CGI Federal, which earned the no-bid contract to build the $678 million Obamacare enrollment website at Healthcare.gov . CGI Federal is the U.S. arm of a Canadian company.
Townes-Whitley and her Princeton classmate Michelle Obama are both members of the Association of Black Princeton Alumni.
Toni Townes ’85 is a onetime policy analyst with the General Accounting Office and previously served in the Peace Corps in Gabon, West Africa. Her decision to return to work, as an African-American woman, after six years of raising kids was applauded by a Princeton alumni publication in 1998

THIS ISSUE: Obama declares HIS job #1 is to put more foreign workers in U.S. jobs -- Billionaires increase pressure on Republicans to help him
Immigration news this week was full of maddening rhetoric, but also hopeful signs that the 2.5 million participants in NumbersUSA's action networks may be nearing a victory in stopping any amnesty or immigration increase in 2013.
With victory seeming so close in reach, now is the time to continue your 10-month, non-stop campaign of phone calls, faxes, emails and office visits to ensure a positive outcome.(See links in the right-hand column.)
Just this morning, Politico produced a story giving several reasons its reporters feel no immigration bill will pass Congress this year. In part, it stated:
A growing chorus of GOP lawmakers and aides are intensely skeptical that any of the party's preferred piecemeal immigration bills can garner the support (of enough Republicans).
That would be good news, because most of the GOP bills are either clearly harmful to the country or questionable, and any bill that comes to the House floor potentially can be used by the Senate to push through at least part of the amnesties and foreign worker increases that its majority wants. All attention at the moment is on Republicans in the House because they hold nearly all the power over whether immigration legislation moves forward this year
Funny how RePukes conveniently ignore the FACT that it was BUSH who granted CGI the no-bid contract....not Obama. The truth just doesn't
play into their conspiracy theory.

How Does the Federal Government Borrow?

To finance the debt, the U.S. Treasury sells bonds and other types of securities.1 (Securities is a term for a variety of financial assets.) Anyone can buy a bond or other Treasury security directly from the Treasury through its website, treasurydirect.gov , or from banks or brokers. When a person buys a Treasury bond, she effectively loans money to the federal government in exchange for repayment with interest at a later date.

Most Treasury bonds give the investor—the person who buys the bond—a pre-determined fixed interest rate. Generally, if you buy a bond, the price you pay is less than what the bond is worth. That means you hold onto the bond until it matures; a bond is mature on the date at which it is worth its face value. For example, you may buy a $100 bond today and pay only $90. Then you hold it for five years, at which time it is worth $100. You also can sell the bond before it matures.

There are actually many different kinds of Treasury bonds, but the common thread between them is that they represent a loan to the Treasury, and therefore to the U.S. government. As citizens of a democracy, Americans collectively own the federal government, thus a big portion of the federal debt—the portion that was leant to the government by regular Americans—is actually money that we owe to ourselves!

If the Federal Government Has Lots of Debt, Who Does It Owe Money To?

The federal debt is the sum of the debt held by the public—that’s the money borrowed from regular people like you and from foreign countries—plus the debt held by federal accounts. Debt held by federal accounts is the amount of money that the Treasury has borrowed from itself. That may sound funny, but recall from above that trust funds are federal tax revenues that can only be used for certain programs. When trust fund accounts run a surplus, the Treasury takes the surplus and uses it to pay for other kinds of federal spending. But that means the Treasury must pay that borrowed money back to the trust fund at a later date. That borrowed money is called “debt held by federal accounts;” that’s the money the Treasury effectively lends to itself. One-third of the federal debt is debt held by federal accounts, while two-thirds of the federal debt is held by the public.2

Debt Held by the Public

Debt held by the public is the total amount the government owes to all of its creditors in the general public. That includes Americans as well as foreign individuals and the governments of foreign countries.3

Approximately half—the largest portion—of debt held by the public is held internationally by foreign investors and central banks of other countries who buy our Treasury bonds as investments. In 2010, these countries included China, which held the most ($1.1 trillion), followed by Japan ($800 billion), Middle Eastern countries ($173 billion), Russia ($168 billion), Brazil ($164 billion) and Taiwan ($152 billion).4

The next largest portion is held by domestic investors, which includes regular Americans as well as institutions like private banks.(A bank may invest some of its own assets in Treasury bonds.) This portion constitutes over a third of the federal debt.

The U.S. Federal Reserve Bank and state and local governments hold the remainder of the federal debt.(The Federal Reserve's share of the federal debt is not counted as debt held by federal accounts, because the Federal Reserve is considered independent of the federal government. The Federal Reserve buys and sells Treasury bonds as part of its work to control the money supply and set interest rates in the U.S. economy.)

Debt Held by Federal Accounts

Debt held by federal accounts is the debt that the federal government has borrowed from itself. Trust funds, such as Social Security, Medicare and the Civil Service Retirement Trust Fund, own most of that debt. The Treasury must pay back borrowed money with interest into those trust funds at some point in the future.5

When a trust fund account runs a surplus, the Treasury invests the surplus in Treasury bonds or other Treasury securities. The Treasury does this for a number of reasons. First, it enables the federal government to use trust fund surpluses to finance current spending. But another reason is that Treasury bonds earn interest with very low risk, so it’s a way for trust fund surpluses to earn a return over time—just the way you might invest your own savings in a Treasury bond or other interest-bearing investment.

Crybaby Galt is a phoney who can't shake his former Nobama persona.

Yeah, thanks Flack but that didn't answer my question did it? Particularly since your, cough, data is aged.

For instance the US currently owes China nearly $1.27 trillion

www.davemanuel.com is a site that has several interesting, accurate and up to the minute categories such as current debt-inflation rate etc.

Have fun debunking yourself.

Maybe $30 worth of booze is "living life to its fullest" in West Virginia.
Except for Texas and Alabama, the rest of America has a higher bar. That does go a long way towards explaining why you feel as you do though.
