The Bush GOP war debt is STILL outstanding. The TRILLIONS that the GOP racked up during the Bush years. Did you think it was paid off already? LOL...uh no.
You marxists didn't even try to bring the debt under control. Blaming Bush! He was bad. This creature is worse. Worse because he didn't change a damn thing accept cater to his progressive agenda where all the true haters, uneducated, self servers and freeloaders are giddy.

Absolutely not, the dumb bastards ran us deep into debt. Then, along comes Obama/Pelosi/Reid and they DOUBLE what it took Bush 8 years to spend in only 4. So now we have the Obama debt and obamacare.

That doesn't change the fact that your GOP bill came in and it's time to pay it. Which is what the debt ceiling is for. You can whine all you want about Obama's debt....but that doesn't change the fact that YOU debt is still outstanding and the YOU need to pay it down.

Once YOU are done paying YOUR debt then you can whine about Obama's. You let the people who voted him in pay it down.

BUT refusing to raise the debt ceiling only will lead to YOU defaulting on YOUR debt. RECKLESS.

Oh puhleeze. The only reason why the GOP TEA RINOs are even talking about spending cuts is because they lost. But when they are in control they wil spend spend spend spend like the drunken sailors they are. History has proven that. YOU marxist didn't even try to bring the debt under control. When Bush took office there was the Clinton surplus. Sorry sweetie, but you do not have leg to stand on with your argument.

I might agree if we were paying down any debt, but you Obots are not paying down anything, in fact you already spent twice as much at Bush ever did. 14% of every tax dollar goes to paying just interest on the national debt. Progressively speaking, as long as you can make the minimum payments on your credit cards, there is no reason you shouldn't buy a car.
