I know and its been increasing ever since and G.W. Bush & the Republicans Compassinate Conservatism as they called it added 7 trillion dollars to the Federal Deficit in 2003 for the Entitlement Society(Medicare Part D) and none of them had ever paid for it who were part of the entitlement society and just added to the Federal Deficit.<quoted text>
How many millions have been thrown at the War on Poverty since the Johnson administration? And how many more are in poverty now including during the Obama administration?
Realtime can do the math. He doesn't like me doing it.
Republican Deficit Hypocrisy

Remember the Medicare drug benefit?
The human capacity for self-delusion never ceases to amaze me, so it shouldn't surprise me that so many Republicans seem to genuinely believe that they are the party of fiscal responsibility. Perhaps at one time they were, but those days are long gone.
This fact became blindingly obvious to me six years ago this month when a Republican president and a Republican Congress enacted the Medicare drug benefit, which former U.S. Comptroller General David Walker has called "the most fiscally irresponsible piece of legislation since the 1960s."
