Also it is almost amusing that people continue to affix blame for debt on the president,(be it Obama or Bush or whomever), who cannot spend even a dime of taxpayer money. So, one more time. CONGRESS is responsible for ALL expenditures and taxes, not the president..
Now let me introduce you to a document called The Constitution of the United States. Article 1, Section 7." All Bills for raising revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with Amendments as on other bills."
Article 1, Section 9: "No money shall be drawn from the treasury, but in Consequence of Appropriations made by Law; and a regular statement and Account of the Receipts and Expenditures of all public Money shall be published from time to time."
So who makes laws? Answer - CONGRESS. Who is responsible for the budget and ALL expenditures? Answer--CONGRESS
<quoted text> Are you aware thst 37% of US debt was created under Obama/democrats?(See, I didn't equate dems as evil).
