Barack Obama, our next President

If only the democrats in the federal government hadn't meddled in the housing market, it never stops. Now the counties of metro Colorado want to give more tax payer money away to house buyers. The stupidity astounds.

Why Government Spending Is Not Out of Control

It is a standard talking point of Republicans and deficit hawks of all political stripes that federal spending is out of control; that major surgery is needed, especially on entitlement programs such as Social Security and Medicare, to get the budget on a sustainable course.

In fact, our long-term deficit situation is not nearly as severe as even many budget experts believe. The problem is that they are looking at recent history and near-term projections that are overly impacted by one-time factors related to the economic crisis and massive Republican tax cuts that lowered revenues far below normal.

Taking a longer-term view, such as that in a recent Treasury Department report, shows that our longer-term fiscal problem is in fact quite manageable.

As the chart below illustrates, federal spending ballooned in fiscal year 2009 mainly because of what economists call “automatic stabilizers”– programs already in law such as unemployment compensation that rises whenever a recession occurs. Spending rose from 20.7 percent of the gross domestic product in fiscal year 2008 to 25 percent in 2009.

Republicans would have us believe that all of this resulted from Barack Obama’s policies, but this is simply a partisan lie. Fiscal year 2009 actually began on September 1, 2008, and was based on the budget that George W. Bush submitted in January 2008.

Moreover, if we look at projections from the Congressional Budget Office on January 7, 2009 – while Bush was still in office and which do not incorporate any Obama policies – we see that the deficit was projected to rise from $455 billion in 2008 to $1.2 trillion in 2009 under existing law.

The actual deficit for fiscal year 2009 was $1.55 trillion. But the difference was due entirely to lower revenues than expected, not higher spending. Outlays in fiscal year 2009 actually came in below CBO’s projection –$3,518 billion actual vs. a projection of $3,543 billion.

The point is not to assess blame for the deficit; only to emphasize the temporary nature of the historically large deficits of the last few years and show that they did not result from an explosion of new spending initiated by Obama. This is important because Republicans continually make that claim, thus justifying their belief that spending must be massively slashed, especially for entitlements.

he's no faux economist, but you nutjobs know that. that's why whenever i post something from one of the men who helped write the book on supply side economics all i get are personal attacks.

a reminder....

Bruce Reeves Bartlett (b. October 11, 1951, in Ann Arbor, Michigan) is an American historian whose area of expertise is supply-side economics. He served as a domestic policy adviser to President Ronald Reagan and as a Treasury official under President George H. W. Bush.

Bartlett has written several books and magazine articles critical of the George W. Bush Administration, whose economic policies he believes significantly depart from traditional conservative principles.

In 2006, he published Impostor: How George W. Bush Bankrupted America and Betrayed the Reagan Legacy (ISBN 0-385-51827-7), which is critical of the Bush Administration's economic policies as departing from traditional conservative principles. He compared the second Bush to Richard M. Nixon as "two superficially conservative presidents who enacted liberal programs to buy votes for reelection.

Tax Returns: A Comprehensive Assessment of the Bush Administration's Record on Cutting Taxes

The very well-off have been big winners on two fronts. They secured enormous gains in income in the 1980s and 1990s. They now are receiving extremely large tax cuts as a result of the 2001 and 2003 tax-cut measures. The Congressional Budget Office provides the most comprehensive data available on recent changes in incomes and taxes for different income groups; these CBO data cover years from 1979 until 2001. Just-released CBO data show:

The average after-tax income of the top one percent of the population more than doubled over this period, rising from $294,300 in 1979 to $703,100 in 2001, an increase of $408,800.(CBO adjusted these figures for inflation and expressed them in 2001 dollars.) This represents an increase of 139 percent.
By contrast, the average after-tax income of the households that make up the middle fifth of the U.S. population rose $6,300, or 17 percent, during this period. And the average after-tax income of the poorest fifth of households rose $1,100, or only eight percent.
In combination with data on before-tax income from a study issued by the National Bureau of Economic Research, these CBO data indicate that before-tax income was more concentrated at the top of the income scale in 2001 than at any time in the previous 65 years (i.e., back to 1936), except for the years from 1997-2000.

The pattern continues in 2004. The President’s budget proposes to make permanent every tax-cut provision enacted in 2001 and 2003 that predominately benefits people with high incomes. But the budget fails to extend — and thus would let die after 2006 — the provision of the 2001 tax-cut law that encourages greater retirement saving by working families with incomes under $50,000.

again, someone attacks Obama despite the facts.

i'm about to the point of just starting to call everyone of you on that BS. all i get are suppositions and non-facts when i present facts. why is that Eman? you're one of the smart folks around here. enlighten my dumb 'liberal' ass please.

i'm more of a conservative than any one of you. real conservatives don't deal in BS. they see the truth, and then tell it like it is. go on over to The American Conservative to see how it really should be. become one of the enlightened ones'.

talk is cheap.
and that's all you're doing.
you know, after a while it becomes plainly obvious that some people who are so committed to never admitting that anything Obama does is good for this country have reasons beyond the facts.
so why don't you tell us what the real reasons are? or are you too much of a coward to admit the truth because if you do it will diminish anything you have to say about him? and why would that be?
because people have no respect for those who hate for no other reason than because of who someone is. tis why we have hate crime laws; laws that people like you despise: and for good reason.
Go spit your cherry pits the other way. It is bad manners to spit them at others.

Fact: the Sun rose above the horizon this morning.
Fact: nocturnal spots on the Earth rotated eastward into the Sun
Fact: a new 24 Hour period began this morning
Fact: another 365th of a year began this morning

Facts can be interpreted many different ways, some of them honestly and others disingenuously. You always choose disingenuously and then stand there smugly like a child with hands on his hips screaming about 'facts'.

Some deceptive people talk only in B&W facts because color exposes the more intricate truth. Others, again, will always find ways to mix B&W into gray to confuse folks. Some will substitute true colors for false ones leaving the audience hunting for the truth inside of a kaleidoscope.

You Copy-n-Paste using all of the above. Delineating any of your Crap is way beyond your capabilities. You have a good Mouse Hand and a poor sense of understanding anything deeper than an Obama Campaign Flyer.

Right, that is the problem the Federal Government never stops once the Federal Government gets involved.

keep them disgusting, stinking smokers 25 feet from the door, ban dodgeball and large sodas, don't mention Jesus, but god forbid we ban pit bulls:

"A toddler who slipped outside through a doggie door was mauled to death by her family's seven dogs in the backyard while the attack went unnoticed by the child's mother and other relatives inside their home, a southeast Georgia sheriff said Thursday.

Bryan County Sheriff Clyde Smith said the child's grandmother told investigators she was lying in bed when she heard the pit bulls and pit bull mixes barking, and she looked outside her window to see them dragging the girl. Smith said she began yelling, "They're killing Monica!"

Human Tissue Found in Meats - but eating it is "no threat"

http://www.activistpost.com/2013/03/human-tis...

The horse meat fiasco in Europe has prodded scientists to look a bit deeper into what else we might be consuming. A team of South African scientists have just found traces of human tissue in meat from 9 provinces meant for public consumption.

The issue was revealed to parliament, almost as a side note, during meat inspection briefings on Tuesday...
