They are constantly going over-budget, produce nothing, and have a more secure job. Why are we paying them so much? Does anyone wonder why we are going bankrupt at the federal level? I guess this is what we get with a community organizer.

Spending under Obama has increased at the smallest rate of any president since Eisenhower.

Obama is like some kind of thrifty super-hero. I've never seen thrift result in debt going up from 10 trillion to 16.5 trillion dollars, but maybe that's just me.

Or maybe it was the wars GWB left for Obama to finish. Or the non-funded tax cuts and prescription drugs freebies that GWB hung him with the tab.

Nope. They all existed during Bush and debt was no where close. Bush's debt was an embarrassment. Obama's is an abomination. The numbers don't lie, even if you do.

The truth is that the nearly 18 percent spike in spending in fiscal 2009 — for which the president is sometimes blamed entirely — was mostly due to appropriations and policies that were already in place when Obama took office.

And yet he has made no effort to reduce it.

Amidst all the cries of Barack Obama being the most prolific big government spender the nation has ever suffered, Marketwatch is reporting that our president has actually been tighter with a buck than any United States president since Dwight D. Eisenhower.

Federal programs are constantly getting out of control. Presidents have always figured out ways to cut back. But not Obama. He blames his predecessor and keeps them going.

10 trillion to 16.5 trillion. Spin it how you like. When we are bankrupt, you can tell us all how many pennies Obama cut from the budget.

Because private industry pays too little. Had you ever worked you would realize that. It is a pity that you bite the hand that feeds you. You cash your government check each month and then complain about the federal budget.

The pay differences were flipped before Obama. Obama told you to be mad at the private sector and trust him. And you have.

No evidence, conjecture on your part. You can't state your opinion and call it fact. You also made no attempt to disprove that you do survive on government support.

10 trillion to 16.5 trillion. It's a fact.

Whether I survive on government support or not is irrelevant to the discussion. If it makes you feel better, then I do.

It is obvious that all you know is the teabagger propaganda.

Evidence, your word is not fact, it is no good.

Spending money on wars started by Republicans. Unfunded and against the wrong countries. Costs a lot of money.
