Looking at federal spending, we'd probably get more. At least as long as the Chinese will lend it to us.

What?



Over-Spending IS THE PROBLem.





In 2000 Bill Clinton's Budget was $1.7 Trillion.

Under this Jackass Obama, the Budget is $3.7 Trillion!!!!!!

That's a $2 TRILLION INCREASE in Spending over the Glory Years of Bill Clinton yet the Country is Suffering. That tells you it's not a Tax Problem but a Spending Problem!


It's time to Jettison the Jackass.
Obama is No Clinton. Hes Jimmy Carter!

We need Balanced Budgets.


Obama has NEVER Balanced a Budget in his entire rotten life.
Romney has Balanced Budgets for a Living.


What a contrast!
Romney's Competence vs Obama's Incompetence.

Who are these investors and WHY AREN'T THEY CUTTING A CHECK TO REDUCE Obama's Deficits?


I'd like to see them cut a $1.76 Trillion Check for the Jackass Obama!


Why Doesn't Obama cut a check out of his Millions?






Sorry. Spending IS the Problem. Get the Big Borrower and Spenders out of the WH and Congress.

There is nothing preventing these people from paying more now. Remember Buffett........he said he would gladly pay more........but he has been in a court battle with the IRS for two years now over 1 million in back taxes..

....LIBERALS SHOULD ALWAYS BE WATCHED FOR WHAT THEY DO, NOT WHAT THEY SAY.

Undoubtedly, the rich CEOs of Goldman Sacks and Wells Fargo who are willing to pay more taxes to cover the 16 trillion dollars budget deficit that grows by 1.3 trillion dollars every year know that their additional contribution effect is less than few pennies added to the average Food Stamp class guys. Nevertheless, the CEO of Goldman knows that like Tim Geithner who moved up from Goldman to become Obama’s treasury chief, he can be promoted too if he tell the American people lies about the rich paying more to save America that is falling apart due to drunken sailor Obama who throw our money through the drain with the most expensive and least efficient czars in US history.

Speaking of Bill Clinton, when he left office there was a 4.2% unemployment rate, a GDP growth rate of 3.7% and a federal budget heading for balance.

Bush promptly wasted all of it and spent the rest of his presidency waging a phony, trumped-up war, driving the American economy into the deepest recession since the Great One, allowing 9/11 to happen, scoffing at Hurricane Katrina and running up a $6.5 trillion debt.

Hey Jimmy Carter?

Hey Ronald Reagan.

That way our elections would no longer be people voting themselves money from the government. The government workers and those on welfare vote for the Dems to keep getting government money and those on SS and Medicare now vote Repub to try to keep getting government money. The founding fathers set this country up to be Libertarian. So only those who pay the tax money should be voting where the money is spent, it was not set up to be a situation where everyone is voting for who will give them government money.
Fact is that there are more people, proportionally, on food stamps and welfare in Republican states than in Democratic states.
Republican states tend to be poorer and more backwoodsy. The South.

Bill Clinton had a FULL republican house and senate. Bush had to deal with a full dem congress hous and senate starting in 2006 who blocked his attempts at regulating fannie/freddie wich caused the recession, dopey. The crash happend in 2008 thanks to the dems forcing banks to give low interest loans which weren't payed back.

Katrina was mmishandled by an incompetent Louisana democrat governor and totally iept racist democrat mayor of NO.

Bush or no one else allowed 9/11 to happen. If anyone allowed it to happend, it was Clinton/Gore.

New Mexico reported the largest jump: 19.9% of the state’s population relied on the program in March, up 2.6 percentage points from a year earlier. In Delaware, 14.9% of residents tapped into the program, up 2.5 points from a year earlier. And in Florida, 16.3% of the population used food assistance, up 2.4 points from a year ago.
