Maybe we can go back to the "glory years" of the Republican economic boom created by George W Bush. Let's combine tax cuts with increased spending and tank the economy! Let's invade a couple of more countries and put in on the credit card! Republicans didn't have any issues at all raising the debt ceiling then. And let's be honest here, they don't care about it now. It's just a useful ploy to bash the Democrat President. Now that a Democrat is President the Republicans become concerned about debt and spending. Let's pretend also that a huge chunk of the current budget is paying for the fiscal irresponsibility of the Republicans from 2000 to 2008. It's a joke, kind of like you.
You don't need any facts or context do you? <lol Talk about "lets be honest"??? <lol Oh lordy, it's not even worth the time to give you an education on this....

I don't believe it. Obama is creating jobs left & right. Just listen to the media. The economy is doing great! Right?

What was GDP/spending ratio in 2008?The Repubs ran the whole show and spending increased/debt rose during most of W's tenure. I guess you can say the Republicans wanted to increase spending while lowering taxes. It doesn't work.
Do you think we have a spending problem in this country? Republicans have agreed to raise taxes on wealthy americans. That is compromise. But where are the spending cuts? Do you really believe that we can continue to spend money the way we do when we've got $16 trillion in debt? And by the way, if raising taxes is the key to everything, shouldn't everyone go back to the Clinton era tax rates? Not just the wealthy, but everyone? After all, those were the good ole days weren't they? And guess what, Obama has every intention of taking EVERYONE back to those rates, not just the wealthy. Why do you think he's refusing to compromise? He wants to go over the cliff. He gets across the board tax hikes and the republicans will get blamed for it. What more could he ask for?

Typical democratic post. Failure to take responsibility for anything. Everything is the fault of Republicans from 4, 6, 8, 10 or 12 years ago. Obama is just a victim that has done a fabulous job as president. Every failure he has had was not his fault at all. Libya, not his fault. The economy, not his fault. The political gridlock, not his fault(afterall, he really seems to be open to compromise, right?). When we go over the fiscal cliff in January, not his fault. Well, it's kind of the way society in general is going too. That's how he wins elections. Our society has taken an "it's not my fault" attitude too. I'm unemployed for 3 years and not looking for work, it's not my fault. I've gotten knocked up 3 times this year, not my fault and the government should pay for my abortions. I realize that it's much easier to blame other people for your own failures and the failures of those people that you cherish like Obama but it doesn't make it the right thing to do. We are going to get what we deserve here. The voters will get what they voted for. They'll get a nanny state that seeks to create government dependents all while taking more and more freedoms from the people. But at the end of the day, those of you that voted for it will just say, "it's not my fault" so who really cares anyway.

The best way to get your freebies is to open a chain of stores like Walmart. The Walton family controls more wealth than the bottom 40% of Americans, and how do they do it? They pay minimum wage, forcing thousands upon thousands of their employees to get public assistance to keep body and soul together. This is a de facto subsidy by American taxpayers of the Walton family's profits.
They also got direct government welfare from the Feds, States, Countys and Cities. But that doesn't count in neighbors or professors fantasy world. also O'reilly the other night said Christianity wasn't a religion, it is a philosophy. That's super bullshit with free lollipops, o'reillys main stock in trade.

Walmart, one of the richest corporations in the world, refuses to pay its employees a livable wage or provide any form of decent healthcare, increasing reliance on government assistance, and the need for a social safety net.
At over $446 billion per year, Walmart is the third highest revenue grossing corporation in the world. Walmart earns over $15 billion per year in pure profit and pays its executives handsomely. In 2011, Walmart CEO Mike Duke already a millionaire a dozen times over received an $18.1 million compensation package. The Walton family controlling over 48 percent of the corporation through stock ownership does even better. Together, members of the Walton family are worth in excess of $102 billion which makes them one of the richest families in the world.

What is shameful is that CEO Mike Duke makes more money in one hour, than his employees earn in an entire year. Yet, Walmart which employs millions of people in its stores, distribution centers, and warehouses continues to abuse its employees and refuses to pay them a livable wage. The company has frequently been charged with wage theft claims by workers who point to the most common forms of wage theft: the refusal to pay proper overtime, the refusal to honor the minimum wage, and illegal paycheck deductions.

Meanwhile, Walmart routinely blocks any attempt by workers to organize, using anti-union propaganda and scare tactics, firing employees without just cause, failing to provide any form of decent healthcare coverage or a livable wage.

To make matters worse, these abusive Walmart policies have increased employee reliance on government assistance and the need for a government funded social safety net. In fact, Walmart has become the number one driver behind the growing use of food stamps in the United States with "as many as 80 percent of workers in Wal-Mart stores using food stamps."

Wal-Mart's poverty wages force employees to rely on $2.66 billion in government help every year, or about $420,000 per store. In state after state, Wal-Mart employees are the top recipients of Medicaid. As many as 80 percent of workers in Wal-Mart stores use food stamps.
