I feel sorry for all those on welfare. We should give them a 401K plan so they can watch the markets too. So unfair. If they make money, then we can take theirs too!

There has in 234 years never been a Congress who has used the Filibuster in Record amounts as the Republicans have since President Obama, that's what makes 51 a Record Amount.

Currently, the Republicans have hit another milestone with the Filibusters, this is the First President in the History of America to have his Cabinet Nominee Filibustered.

This is also the First President to have congress deny Federal Spending to tame a recession, but he's found a way to bring the Nation out of the jaws of the financial disaster that the Republicans and George Bush left the nation in 2009.

No, what is typical is the sad fact that you can't reconcile that both parties are responsible for our present situation.
You are one of those black and white people in a world with 256 shades of gray.
You sound like the Republicans are the only ones to use a filibuster. Let me remind you that Obama is on record as supporting a filibuster of any bill he deems worthy.
"To be clear: Barack will support a filibuster of any bill that includes retroactive immunity for telecommunications companies."
All a matter of degree, isn't it? For you, degree only matters when it is against you.
So typical.

<quoted text>The lingering effect of the "New Deal" still reek havoc on American Finances and those polices were protected by the House and Senate Democrats! Damn, when does the current Administration step and say, "We are Accountable/Responsible" shouldn't be hard now, no more elections for the Obama train!
It's not the new deal that created the debt, it was George Bush spending, not social security or medicare. Medicare is a victim of the Republicans allowing the Health Care Industry lobbyist write legislation which they enacted to earn those political donations.

New Deal programs, the Social Security Act are paid for with contributions in tax payments from the Millions of American middle class, not federal income tax revenue.

The Republicans in 1972 embarked on a mission to divert funds into the Industrial War Complex to burst the budget and increase debt and used the extraordinary debt to justify stealing funding from the New Deal programs.

Pay attention, it's only been going on for nearly 40 years. The Republicans have always been intent on breaking the backs of the American Middle Class, that's an agenda to reduce society to a nation of surfs and beggars who are willing then to work for $2.50 an hour.

Henchforth, of the current $16 Trillion in National Debt accumulated over 234 years of America,$9 Trillion was added by 3 Republican Presidents since 1980, Reagan $1.6 Trillion, George H.W. Bush $1 Trillion, and George H. Bush Jr,$6.1 Trillion for a combined $9 Trillion, or 58% of all debt accumulated since George Washington was President.

What would the status of Senior Citizens be had George Bush been successful and privatized Social Security after the 2007 crash of the World Economy?

The Debt you're complaining about is a function of the Bush tax policies that allows 1 in every 4 American Corporations to avoid taxes. The Deficit has been reduce year over year so that is a clear indication that Federal Expenditures have been consistently reduced since the 2009 George Bush record $1.4 Trillion deficit.

The Bush Trade policies only worked to gut the American work force, creating a vacuum of more than 8 million jobs just to China, India and Mexico, and the growth of less than 4 Million jobs under Bush and the Republicans, 1 Million of those were federal jobs to staff the Department of Homeland Security.

In comparison, President Obama inheriting a failed State oversaw the private sector creation in his first term of more than 6 Million Jobs, and a 110% increase on Market Accounts in the Stock Market, after the historic $15 Trillion in personal investment losses in 2007 thru to Mar 2009.

So you want address what I said originally, or are you like the "Professor" just another wacked out liberal who trolls the internet feigning some level of intelligence?

There has never been a bipartisan solution to America's Fiscal problems after Republicans Administrations. Bill Clinton was left in the same position as Obama with economic and fiscal wreckage. Clinton employed Line Item Veto, and endured a Federal Shut-down to get the nation back on track to Financial prosperity and consecutive budget surpluses and eventually paying down debt.

The Republicans have never in the History of America performed so well and all their idea are the same stale ideas intent on dismantling the New Deal programs and those of the Great Society by diverting federal funds to their political supporters across all industry in America, but mainly the Industrial War Complex.
