Do the same math with Reagan's numbers or GW's numbers. Be sure to not skip over the cost of meaningless war in Iraq that you guys always seem to ignore. Be sure to adjust for the year, and to include the unpaid medicare expansion Bush put through. What about the millions and millions of dollars spent on the war on drugs? Another great symbol of liberty your camp came up with. Why hasn't that huge amount of spending towards a completely failed program ever ruffled your feathers?Under President Barack Obama, the total debt of the U.S. government has increased by approximately $1,608,304 for each of the 4,130,665 babies born in the United States in 2009, the year Obama took office.
If the federal government were to continue accumulating net debt throughout the expected 78.5-year lifespan of a baby born in 2009 at the same average annual pace it has accumulated net debt during Obama’s first five years as president, the government would add more than $104 trillion in net debt during the life expectancy of those babies.
We are all fully aware that the government spends a lot of money. The key is to find working solutions to streamline our government and make our tax dollars do the most they can. When you start talking about obstructionist political tactics to make a president seem ineffective or to shut the government down, or absurd notions like Sesame Street being the problem and the source of some huge vacuum of government spending, it becomes easy to think that the GOP doesn't have a plan. Who ever came up with the notion that raising the quality of living for the very poor in our country as being some evil commie ploy is beyond greedy. The United States needs to educate our young people in the fields of technology and not be teaching Religious creation stories in a science class. Every smart phone you see was made in another country and that's a lot of smart phones. Our country could be on the cutting edge of medicine, science and technology but we have wasted so much time on political and religious agendas that instead of learning the ins and outs of mobile computing technology, we have kids preparing themselves for zombie wastelands, commie take overs, anti-Christs and 2nd Amendment 2nd comings.
The Christian Right are so arrogant that they believe nothing short of something Biblical could sum up their lives and all younger generations will see the end of the world, because nothing could possibly top the moral high ground these old, white Bible thumpers think they have achieved. Why not cash in on every speck of natural resources? Why not grab as much money as you and your cronies possibly can, and ignore the data that shows it is destroying our environment because Jesus will be back any minute now and as long as you got yours, screw the poor and the future generations...right?
