The Democrats own the economy now. Bush has been gone several years. You guys put a President in office, that the only experience was being community organizer. Yes Bush did leave debt, but Obama made it worse instead of better. Now we're paying the price. This administration has got to stop spending money.It wouldn't be bad if taxes were raised for everyone, as long as spending for frivolous things were stopped for good.

And the damaging parts were caused by failed Reagan/Tush "trickle down" economics, so much a failure, in fact, that Reagan's budget director, David Stockman, has come out publicly and admitted as much.
LOL!!!!
Rethuglicanism = EPIC FAIL
How is the LBJ's war on poverty going? As I said, this has been a problem for about 70+ yrs now. Obama just through it into overdrive!

If the Government wanted to raise taxes to pay off the debt that would be fine, but Democrats will use the extra money to buy votes with their idle people, and they have to stop doing that
until we are in better financial situations.

The Quote of the Decade

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America 's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government can not pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America 's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, "the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”
-- Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006

I bet the Kenyan Kid wishes he never said that about raising the Debt limit when he was a Senator. He is such a phony.

He is a communist. His father was, his mother was, his college friends were,(those not muslim), one of his mentors was and some of his professors were.........stack that with an education that can't be verified and tracked, along with questionable SS number(S)and you have a good scenario for a spy movie..........and a mole. Maybe Speilberg could whip up something.
