I'd much prefer Claire McCaskill explain the millions her husband's benefited from since she's been in D.C. for his Section 8 housing. No wonder she loves illegal aliens, her hubby's properties are probably full of them!
LMFAO

There is no power or authority delineated in the U.S. Constitution for the federal government to usurp authority over education or appropriate the spending of any federal tax dollars on education.

Education is and ought to remain an issue for each state to determine.

BTW, a vote for McCaskill is a vote to continue down the steep slope into economic collapse.

Republican policy has already put the country into near economic collapse. Let us give them some more time to try harder????

The economy was doing very well while Republicans controlled Congress. Then, after the 2006 elections, Democrats took over and ran the economy straight in the toilet.

Yeah, we know which economic policies work and which ones don't. Vastly increasing government spending and raising more taxes doesn't work. Cutting government spending and cutting taxes does work.

It's an easy choice in November. If you want economic collapse, vote Democrat. If you want economic expansion and a job, vote Republican.

Did you forget about the Bush tax cuts? Did you forget about Bush's Medicare Drug plan? You are factually wrong and out of touch with reality. Where do you get this nutty stuff?

Nope, I sure didn't forget. The Bush Tax Cuts were implemented in 2001 and 2003 and spurred economic growth after the 9/11 attacks caused great turmoil.

And, those tax cuts worked! The lagging economy turned around and we saw steady economic growth for the next 54 months. In fact, when Democrats took over control of Congress in January of 2007, unemployment was 4.5%, and the DOW was at an all time high. Not only that, government revenues increased every year after the tax cuts were implemented. Why? Because those tax cuts caused the economy to grow, which resulted in more government revenue.

Those are the facts.

Also, if we look at the 12 years of Republican control of Congress (January 1995 - January 2007) we see an average annual deficit of $325 billion. That included the cost of both wars and the Part D Medicare prescription drug plan.

Those are the facts.

What happened after Pelosi and Reid took over Congress in 2007? Well, the annual deficit skyrocket to $1.4 trillion, 4 times that of the Republicans! We also saw the economy plunge due to failed liberal policies in the housing market. You seem to forget that Chris Dodd and Barney Frank were in charge of the oversight committees supposedly protecting the taxpayers from the idiotic actions taken by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. We now know those two crooks robbed us blind, then rode off in the sunset will millions of our tax dollars in their bank accounts.

Those are the facts.

So no, I'm hardly out of touch with reality, but you certainly are. Stop being a retarded liberal idiot mindlessly swallowing the leftist bullshit the DC wackos are feeding you.

Do some research so you won't sound like such a damn fool.

Those are your facts. Just because you believe something does not make it a fact.

I could say the Bush budget deficiets in those years created your so called ecnomic boom. If it was economic boom times where were the jobs?

You are seriously delued.

Those aren't my facts, those are THE facts. You just refuse to acknowledge them because they prove you wrong.

You could say that a rooster crowing causes the sun to rise, but we all know how silly that would be.

Look, I gave you the facts. Budget deficits don't cause an economic boom, they are a drag on the economy. It's no different in principle that buying things on your credit card. At the end of the month you have yet another bill to pay. Going further into debt does not lead to financial prosperity.

As far as the jobs go, during the entire time Republicans had control of Congress (Jan. 1995 - Jan. 2007) unemployment never went above 5%. During Bush's 8 years in office (the last two under Democrat control of Congress) unemployment averaged 4.5%. So yeah, the tax cuts worked year after year.

The problem is that tax cuts alone can't keep the economy afloat when Democrats in Congress are borrowing over a trillion dollars per year and giving it to the United Auto Workers, Tim Geihtner's buddies at Goldmann Sachs, funding African Penis Washing Programs and Cowboy Art Festivals, giving it to Brazil to develop their offshore drilling while blocking off shore drilling here in America, giving it to a car company to build cars in Finland, giving it to Obama campaign supporters running a company called Solyndra, funding Michelle Obama's lavish vacations all over the world, and on and on.
You are seriously delued.
Hardly. I know what the facts are because I'm not a retarded liberal idiot who mindlessly swallows the leftist bullshit put out by MSNBC and Huffpo. Maybe it's time you pulled your head out of your ass and take a deep breath of reality.
