The economic times we live in can be traced all the way back to the Reagan-GHW Bush years.

When Carter left office, the national debt was at .9 trillion.

After twelve years of Reagan and GHW Bush, it stood at 4.1 trillion.

Under Clinton, the debt increased by only 1.6 trillion over an eight year period. And Clinton left office with a balanced annual budget. I'll give Republicans some credit for that.

Then came GW Bush...

After eight years, the debt increased from 5.7 to 11.4 trillion. ADD to this the immense bail-outs caused by CDWs (credit default swaps) and the collapsed real estate market.

All that borrowing and bail-out came during the GOP watch.

The FBI warned Congress in 2004 that bad bank loans would result in a financial crisis. The GOP, which was the MAJORITY PARTY, did nothing.

So here we stand.

The note that 23-year-old Paul Ciancia carried with him as he charged into Los Angeles International Airport and opened fire on Friday reportedly referenced right-wing conspiracy theories amid homophobic rants about former Department of Homeland Security director Janet Napolitano and other government officials.
According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, a law enforcement source confirmed that he note contained racist, homophobic and sexist slurs aimed at government officials, security agencies, liberals and racial minorities.
Raw Story noted on Friday that police reported that Ciancia was carrying a document that referred to the “New World Order,” a favorite phrase of the conspiracy-minded right used to describe an amorphous group of world elites who seek to impose one world government on all people. Both Alex Jones and Glenn Beck have included the phrase in their rantings.

The first step in control of medical costs should be approaching the question of why medical care and drugs cost less if paid for by insurance than if paid for without insurance.

Good point; however in Canada, the government negotiates the price of drugs. Many Americans buy their drugs from Canadian online pharmacies.
Are you in favor of price controls on pharmaceuticals by the government?

The great irony of this era under a Bozo regime is that while the rest of the globe is rising from the ashes of communism, socialism, economic ignorance and extreme poverty using the powerful machine of economic freedom, America is sliding backward into an economic collapse following the Magic Negro's corrupt and iron-fisted race to the bottom attempting to use centralized economic planning.

We'll see if the GOP shutdown of the executive wins them any votes in 2014. I suspect that cigar exploded in their face.

The great "irony" is your refusal to admit the great failure of our times has been Republican "trickle down" economics, based on the faulty premise that the more government cuts taxes, the more revenue is generated.

The simple fact is, the tax breaks never generated enough new revenue to compensate for what was lost.

So, yes, we are fighting our way out of the ashes, all right. Five terms worth of failed GOP economics.

Impossible to make the situation better when all the president cares about is wealth redistribution, paying tribute to the tree huggers and does zero to create jobs.

When Oblamer proposes something useful I'm sure the repubs will get on board. Right now the country is watching the disastrous healthcare implosion created by the dems.
