Ahhh lets not forget the huge deficit that the republicans stuck us with. Baying of their heard rose above their stench with Nay, Nay, Nay..

U.S. Budget Deficit Shrinks Far Faster Than Expected

The Congressional Budget Office said the 2013 fiscal deficit would fall to about $642 billion, or 4 percent of G.D.P., about $200 billion less than it estimated just three months ago.
WASHINGTON — Since the recession ended four years ago, the federal budget deficit has topped $1 trillion every year. But now the government’s annual deficit is shrinking far faster than anyone in Washington expected, and perhaps even faster than many economists think is advisable for the health of the economy.
The agency forecast that the deficit, which topped 10 percent of gross domestic product in 2009, could shrink to as little as 2.1 percent of gross domestic product by 2015 — a level that most analysts say would be easily sustainable over the long run — before beginning to climb gradually through the rest of the decade.
"Revenues have been strong as the economy has outperformed a bit," said Joel Prakken, a founder of Macroeconomic Advisers, a forecasting firm based in St. Louis.
Over all, the figures demonstrate how the economic recovery has begun to refill the government’s coffers. At the same time, Washington, despite its republican political paralysis.
Republicans say perhaps too successful. Given that the economy continues to perform well below its potential and that unemployment has so far failed to fall below 7.5 percent, many economists are cautioning that the deficit is coming down too fast, too soon.
“It’s good news for the budget deficit and bad news for the jobs deficit,” said Jared Bernstein of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, a left-of-center research group in Washington.“I’m more worried about the latter.” OOOHHH scary..
Now Obama is showing his democratic colors of success in financials. With the government running a hefty $113 billion surplus in the tax payment month of April, according to the Treasury, analysts now do not expect the country to run out of room under its debt ceiling.
The $200 billion reduction to the estimated deficit comes not from the $85 billion in mandatory cuts known as sequestration, nor from the package of tax increases that Congress passed this winter to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff. The office had already incorporated those policy changes in its February forecast.
Republicans want Congress to agree for this year to serving as a partial brake on the recovery, cutting government jobs and preventing growth from accelerating to a more robust pace, many economists have warned. The International Monetary Fund has called the country’s pace of deficit reduction “overly strong,” arguing that Washington should delay some of its budget cuts while adopting a longer-term strategy to hold down future deficits. Typical, small minds for small growth..
CBO is revising its estimates for the current year, the budget office also cut its projections of the 10-year cumulative deficit by $618 billion. Those longer-term adjustments are mostly a result of smaller projected outlays for the entitlement programs of Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare, as well as smaller interest payments on the debt. The C.B.O. has quietly erased hundreds of billions of dollars in projected government health spending over the last few years.
It did so again on Tuesday. In February, the budget office projected that the United States would spend about $8.1 trillion on Medicare and $4.4 trillion on Medicaid over the next 10 fiscal years. It now projects it will spend $7.9 trillion on Medicare and $4.3 trillion on Medicaid. Republicans “Chicken Little” is dying. Serving red herrings will return to the menu for their herd.

IRS’s duties are to weed out organizations that qualify for tax exemptions and those that do not. Tax exempt organizations cannot show any bias to any political candidate or party.
Number of applications for tax exempt status doubled to the pre elections of 2012. Fueling that rise was derived by the Supreme Court’s decision of 2010 {Citizens United} obscuring differences of political activism, mainly from the right, from social welfare groups. Promoting lawyers’ to find loopholes. Said Historian Stephen Hess.
This amounts to nothing more than republicans redundant strategy of red herrings for their herd. If IRS did not investigate, then republicans would charge them of being guilty for not performing their duties as defined in 501 [c][4]. Typical ploy of extremist right wing.
Red herring being served at this time is to distract their herd from recognizing Obama’s achievement in reigning in the deficit in record time. Which they will soon be serving ominous warnings the deficit is decreasing the debt TOO FAST and will prove disastrous.

Or, you could just get to the point?
You have already stipulated the limits of your abilities to comprehend what you are reading.
A mathematical investigation was produced by the statisticians Pedro Santa Clara and Rossen Valkanov that exposes the superior performance of the stock markets under democrats. That this is but one example of the democrat’s superiority, as there are more.
Their study encompasses 80 years. Study demonstrates systematically and positively surprised by democratic policies. Comparing the stewardship of the two parties. They calculated each economic indicator as an “annual average” during the democrats and republicans of their economic stewardship of their 40 years each. Turns out to be a landslide for democrats providing beneficial returns to the nation. One example; Democrat’s presided over a very respectable average annual compound return of 9.60% during their 40 years where in as republicans averaged a dismal 0.58%.
Consider this; a 401K plan invested in stocks and had a value of $100,000 at the beginning of the 40 years. Democrats would accumulate in compound interest $ 3,912,210 where in as republicans would only produce $126,027 . Another example; “IF” an employee were to invest $5,000 per year into their 401K for 40 years in a democratic stewardship the employee would have $1,985,526 in the bank. Where as the republican would produce a dismal $224,375.
That republicans advocate that they are good for businesses is false. Another interesting fact emerges within the statistical study. The income gap between the 99% and the top 1% has widened considerably under republicans. Averaging .49% as compared to the democrat’s .41% That is to say under republicans the income gap in 40 years, widened by 19.6% and narrowed 16.4%. Resulting in a 36% difference.
LOL on debt republicans increased debt by 2.5 times greater than that of the democrats. Republicans $7.1 Trillion vs. the democrats $2.8 Trillion.
GOP’s Self-Proclamation for economic dominance; in fact it is a misnomer to call the GOP a fiscal responsible party and or a smaller government, when in fact the contrary is true.
Obama’s administration indicates he sought the great leaders on these issue. Eccles and FDR, Reagan and O’Neill to do what is most productive for our nation.

Finally republicans in corporation with the Tea Party have executed a positive policy! Advancing the Liberal International Free Trade Markets. Even with those that are not on the Free trade agreements with the USA.
Energy Department on May 17 have unconditionally approved a Texas company to export Liquefied Natural Gas.{LNG}
Reducing the glut here in the USA that have kept prices down. Freeport LNG Expansion LP will be exporting 1.4 Billion cubic feet {CF} per day, with permits to countries that do not have Free Trade agreements with the USA.
Freeport is one of two companies that have been given the go ahead. Soon to be 20 companies. This will give the USA a 29 Billion c.f. per day ability to flood the Liberal Free Trade Markets. This amounts to 40% of our current Natural Gas. Greater profits to be realized for these companies, Lowering the prices in these improvised economies and stimulating employment to their infrastructures.
Small price to pay even though it will lower our employment opportunities’ and increase our cost for fuel and energy. Like we can’t afford that. Our Alternative energies will have to wait. Competing with the products that these that are not on the Free Trade Markets with their far less cost to employment. No problem we will just need to reduce our employment pays. Ahh the benefits of the Liberal International Free Trade Markets. Republicans finally got it right. Call your Senators and lavish them with your praise..

Obama’s loans to the various American Auto Manufacturers, increased employment by 5,000 instantly and added more as it went along. Loans paid back to the USA coffers with Interest and profits.
Tea Party, not to be out performed, lead by the famous Eric Cantor of West Virginia {R}. Raised $ 300 Million and GAVE it to the Avondale Shipyards of Alabama to Shut Down. Sending 5,000 to the unemployment lines.
Such a ship yard could have benefited with contracts for those LNG Sea Transporting Ships “BUT” those contracts were appreciated by South Korea and China that went ahead with the LNG Ships.[LNG]{Liquefied Natural Gas} Small price to pay for our country although the city of Avondale lays in ruins with homes lost and families sent into destitute. Keep in mind though the benefits of the Liberal International Free Trade Markets had on those nations of the improvised. Promoting employment and distributing the wealth of the USA to those of less abilities to compete. How could anyone argue against such a human endeavor?
Now we can share our Natural Gas with all, whether or not they are on the Liberal International Free Trade Markets list. We keep 60% of our Natural Gas and share 40%. 60/40 good deal. Small price to pay don’t you think.
Could it be the republicans are resurrecting the Grand Old Party once again?

Everything you said is worthless BS, unless the target understands it.

Which is worse - failing to understand complex, over-stated BS or, simplified, to-the-point thought which requires no study?

Intelligence does not always beat common sense. Actually, common sense is far more valuable, as life skills, than meaningless crap you read in books that authors wrote just to get a paycheck.

Truth is you can’t handle the truth !
Proof of republicans catastrophic false leadership is in the pudding.
Pentagon now asking $450 Million! To maintain Guantanamo Bay. May 14th Pentagon request $79 Million for detention,$20.5 Million for military Commission; Nearly double from a year ago of $12.6 Million, Additionally requesting $40 Million for fiber optic cables,$99 Million for operations and Maintenance and $200 Million for upgrades for their “temporary facilities”.? Estimating construction time will take another 10 years. All this for 166 prisoners that after over a decade of not even charging the suspects.
Guantanamo has become a black eye for our nation. Military administrators are overboard with their expenses and inefficiencies to process their prisoners to justice.
International Allies view this in disfavorable illuminating light of our “Human Rights Violations” Hypocrisy. Terrorist use this failure for our “Truth and Justice self proclaimed ideology to recruit additional terrorist. Consider those prisoners as being educated by Guantanamo archaic “Dungeons and Dragons” strategies. Those released will serve the terrorist once again with far more vigor.
$ 450 Million would serve this Nation more productively by increasing securities in our embassies that are in harms way. Something republicans have continuously denied to fund. Just as they deny the closing of Guantanamo Bay. Presently they have additional suspects that the military wants to incarcerate to Guantanamo Bay from the Libya and Benghazi affaires.
Military Justice has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt their inefficiency in such matters. No more funds to Guantanamo Bay detention center and allow this black eye to heal itself. Pentagon can draw on the sequested budget they have been assigned to or let the “Concentration Camp” fade away.
