Made up numbers- like the total number of minutes you have spent in service to this country- are totally worthless.

If you want to make this country a better place to live in- and it won't cost us a dime- why not start up the car in the garage with the door closed again?

Who knows maybe this time you may pass out before you chicken out?

No, I'm saying that the Republicans sabotaged any efforts to eradicate poverty in America by unplugging those programs initiated by Johnson over the last 50 years when in charge at the White House beginning with Nixon, Ford, Reagan, Bush and ending with W.

Systematic redistribution of wealth from the working guy to the Fat Cats.
The same scheme is playing out with Republicans refusing to extend Unemployment, unless there are tax cuts for the wealthy for so called jobs, a strategy that didn't produce jobs with the Bush Tax Cuts that were the largest in history.

The Debt was $12 Trillion when Bush left office, today it's $17 Trillion and all because of the enormous financial obligations that Bush tied to the throat of America.
How did you come up with doubled, this is interesting.
Obama promised to cut the debt in half from 7 trillion to 3.5 trillion in his first term. The debt is now 17 trillion, that is a 13.5 trillion difference. Obama lied and our country suffers.

Unemployment Benefits

The tax treatment of unemployment benefits you receive depends on the type of program paying the benefits.

Unemployment compensation. You must include in income all unemployment compensation you receive. You should receive a Form 1099-G showing in box 1 the total unemployment compensation paid to you. In most cases, you enter unemployment compensation on line 19 of Form 1040, line 13 of Form 1040A, or line 3 of Form 1040EZ.
Types of unemployment compensation. Unemployment compensation generally includes any amount received under an unemployment compensation law of the United States or of a state. It includes the following benefits.
Benefits paid by a state or the District of Columbia from the Federal Unemployment Trust Fund.

State unemployment insurance benefits.

Railroad unemployment compensation benefits.

Disability payments from a government program paid as a substitute for unemployment compensation.(Amounts received as workers' compensation for injuries or illness are not unemployment compensation. See Workers' Compensation under Sickness and Injury Benefits, earlier.)

Trade readjustment allowances under the Trade Act of 1974.

Unemployment assistance under the Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act of 1974.

Unemployment assistance under the Airline Deregulation Act of 1974 Program.

Governmental program. If you contribute to a governmental unemployment compensation program and your contributions are not deductible, amounts you receive under the program are not included as unemployment compensation until you recover your contributions. If you deducted all of your contributions to the program, the entire amount you receive under the program is included in your income.
**********
1099G Box 1. Unemployment Compensation http://www.irs.gov/instructions/i1099g/ar01.h...

Enter payments of $10 or more in unemployment compensation including Railroad Retirement Board payments for unemployment. If you make payments from a contributory program that has been deemed to be in the nature of unemployment compensation, such as California's Family Temporary Disability Insurance payments or governmental paid family leave program payments, file a separate Form 1099-G for payments from each contributory program. Enter the total amount before any income tax was withheld. If you withhold federal income tax at the request of the recipient, enter it in box 4.

How unemployment is taxed
Unemployment benefits do count as taxable income on your federal return, but they're not necessarily taxed by your state. TurboTax will do the calculations for you when you prepare your state return.
If your income is low to moderate, you might not be required to file a federal return or to pay any federal taxes. To learn more, read Do I Need to File a Tax Return?

90,473,000: Record Number Not in Labor Force--Up Almost 10M Under Obama
September 6, 2013
The number of Americans who who have decided not to participate in the nation's labor force has pushed past 90,000,000 for the first time, according to data released today by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The BLS counts a person as participating in the labor force if they are 16 years or older and either have a job or have actively sought a job in the last four weeks. A person is not participating in the labor force if they are 16 or older and have not sought a job in the last four weeks.
In July, according to BLS, 89,957,000 Americans did not participate in the labor force. In August, that climbed to 90,473,000--a one month increase of 516,000.

The debt is $16 trillion and dropping

The Bush debt was $10 trillion.

And when he took office, Obama had to pull the car the Bush drove off the road and into a tree: the cost of repairing the national debt goes to Bush as well.

Bush was handed a budget surplus: had he kept the trend laid out by Clinton there would be no debt - none- today.

He promised to cut the DEFICIT, not debt in half, the Debt of America was $12 Trillion on Jan 20, 2009, the Deficit was $1.4 Trillion today the 2013 deficit was $650 Billion

He's manage to cut those deficits that dramatically while administering over a sluggish economy creating 8 Million jobs which compares favorable to the more than 10 Million jobs loss and outsourced under Bush and the Republican majority, from 2001 to 2009

It's impossible to ignore the job growth under Obama as compared to under Bush where America loss more jobs than at any point in the history of America and capitalism while Bush also was running up the largest budget deficits in the nation's history.

That's not meeting half way, that stealing money set aside for unemployment , by workers for workers. Another hostage situation playing itself out in exchange for reductions in social safety net programs also funded by the same pool of middle class workers.

This has been a systematic scheme over the last 40 years.

Republicans was set asides, ransom and republicans demand tax reductions for the wealthy and upper income earners to release unemployment benefits,

Same strategy to get the Bush tax cuts extended.

Classic redistribution of wealth from the little guy to the Fat Cats..........

What the Republicans are doing is meeting half-way. They told DumBama that if he wants his unemployment extension, find the money to pay for it.
That's too much to ask of DumBama, so what the Democrats are doing is saying they will look for cuts somewhere else, but in order to do that, Republicans must agree to extend unemployment even longer than three months.
And again, please give me a number that would wipe out poverty. Since we've already spent over 20 trillion dollars (more than our national debt) how many more trillions would be needed to wipe out poverty? After all, it's the Republicans (as you claim) that kept that figure to just below 21 trillion, so it's their fault. And out of that 50 years, we've only had a Republican led Congress for under 20 of those years. You know, it's the Congress that spends the money in our country.

There were a number of factors. The sequester is a big part of it.

A lot of it was mortgage bailouts being paid back and raising taxes.

Obama " I refuse to let or children be responsible for this debt" Liberals and ObamaZombes are claiming Obama reduced the deficit,but in his lie he used the word debt many times. He also blamed the debt on someone else, knowing full well that he was a part of Congress during the time period prior to The November 4,2008 election.
Obama never signed a budget while occupying The White House, Obama has never had an economic policy that was in the best interests of The United States. The best thing that happened as a result of the November 2008 election is that the Republican gained many seats and control of house during the 2010 election.

The Bush deficit was $614 billion with a Democrat controlled Congress. Technically Obama only told a half truth. But when he was campaigning he was definitely talking about the Debt.
