I know this has been explained to you several times but.....before they were obamas wars , they were started by bush, who in his savvy republican leadership, did not put those VERY expensive wars costs in his budget. They were put in the budget when the next guy took over. Which was quite a chunk im sure you would agree. Well, maybe not.Bush`s Wars only left the U.S. in debt 1/2 as much in 8 years as Obama`s wars and leadership have left the U.S. in 4 years with over $17 trillion debt . The debt under Obama is due to over spending every where.
There are some things all conservatives have on their minds when discussing politics.
Immigration Reform is not just about the illegals, it is also about securing the Border , having knowledge who is here and why, stopping the stay of immigrants that over stay their permits, allowing people to come here to stay(that are wanted) and no sneak ins!
Spending is where much could be saved by one giant bookkeeping look at our big fat over spending gov`t ? Removing the dep`t of education , agriculture, and EPA back to the States . Where closer looking at the use could be had . The federal depts. could be cut to several overseers for each State(100),if every one could agree there are 50 States . Obama and WTF would have to be taught History of the U.S.
Much money could be saved by selling off all unused buildings in Washington , that the Gov`t owns.
Giving money to countries that hate us could be stopped . Why do it? Seems like a waste.
Calvin C. you just do not understand what conservatives really believe in you have listened to the spiel of your wrong headed leaders too long.
As far as crazy Obama spending goes....chew on this
Government spending under President Obama has grown at a slower rate than it did under any president since Dwight D. Eisenhower was in office sixdecades ago,according to an analysis from Bloomberg. That may not jibe with the conservative complaints that Obama has overseen a massive growth in government spending,but itís true:
Federal outlays over the past three years grew at their slowest pace since 1953-56, when Dwight D. Eisenhower was president. Expenditures as a share of the economy sank last year to 22.8 percent,their lowest level since 2008,according to Congressional Budget Office data. Thatís down from 24.1 percent in 2011 and a 64-year high of 25.2 percent in 2009, when Obama pushed through an $831 billion stimulus package.[...]
Spending grew just 0.6 percent from 2009 to 2012, according to data compiled by Bloomberg from government reports.
Obama has already agreed on $1.4 trillion in spending cuts with Congressional leaders,which,combined with new revenues and reduced interest payments,will reduce the deficit by $2.5 trillion over the next decade.
Spending is expected to fall 1.3 percent in fiscal 2013,according to projections from the Congressional Budget Office. Annualized spending under Obama is growing slower than it has under the past four Republican presidents,as ThinkProgress noted in March. Meanwhile,a Goldman Sachs analyst told Bloomberg that a stronger economy will cut the deficit to $500 billion,to less than 3 percent of gross domestic product,by 2015.
