Goober, your buddy Libero tried the same line; it wasn't true then, and repeating it won't make it true. Here are the facts:The government is repleat with waste and fraud, but let's not work on that, Let's play stupid monkey games with raising the taxes on the "rich" which will yield enough revenue to pay our debt for eight days
Federal spending per month:$308 billion for October 2012.
Cost of extending all tax provisions set to expire on 1/1/2013:$4.5 trillion over 10 years.
I'm not a mathematician, but I think that's more than either 8 days or a month's worth of federal spending. It's actually like a year and half's worth.
I am perfectly willing to listen to other points of view, but please, stop lying. That's the least you can do.
