LOL.
Repubs are a hot mess. Doing all they can to blame Pres Obama and Dems while half the repub party voted "yes".
Grover is a delusional egoist, taxes went up for many people. His pronouncement doesn't constitute truth.

That was 11 trillion under Bush. And some of that, if not all, you supported.
We borrowed and paid for nothing under Dubya. Even the yearly Iraq cost was added as "Emergency Funding" every year cause repubs, and YOU, were okay with not acknowledging this as something that needed to be paid for.
The cost was too huge for you "fiscal hawks" to consider in a budget that was already causing us to borrow from China.
Yet you supported nation-building in Iraq.
Don't hate me for my facts, hate me cause I'm point out your hypocrisy and willingness to jam your head in the sand regarding repubs wrecking this country under Dubya.
McCain didn't even want to be seen with the guy, for fear it would ruin his campaign....as though Palin didn't, but thats a whole nother nut worth cracking.
The borrowing began under Clinton, bozo. Don't hand us that bogus surplus crap...where he moved money on paper from SS, project the dot.com industry would give us massive tax funds..LMAO

During the fiscal years for which Sarah Palin exercised budgetary authority as Governor of Alaska, the State's General Fund averaged an annual surplus of more than $2.6 billion (up from her predecessor's average of $1.0 billion), amounting to 24.4% of average revenues over the same period. You blew that one!

The dot.com busted and the money never materialized.

Smoke, mirrors, magic and blame...the dem leadership.

You think there won't be any more deadlines? There is another budget one in February, and since we are already exceeding our debt level they have to do something about a new debt level. If you haven't had sense enough to do some saving, and stocking food, and buying additional guns, and ammo to keep thieves from your door step you can just wait for the Government to provide. Good luck. You better take your guns to a friendlier state like Indiana, because Illinois will come right to the door to pick up all your guns. Then they will brain wash you into thinking you don't need them anyway.
Next election, if there are any more, vote right.
Right is wrong. Left is right.

Show us when his lying claim of being a "fiscal hawk" shows itself in his actually voting records.
Funny, you call for bi-partisanhship to avoid the FC, then crticize the vote...anything for propaganda, right?

Wait until the debt limit fight starts.....nobama will hide in the closet, send Joe Biden again.

Pelosi just took an expedient shortcut. If Republicans are against it, it can't be bad.

But there was enough funding for Marines in embassies and consulates all over Europe, Japan, China, Africa, Australia, Canada and elsewhere?

Not enough for Marines in a hot area even after warnings.

You still blaming Dems for the Bill Boehner, losing VP Candidate Ryan, and 83 other repubs in the house voted for.

If you didn't know payroll tax credit was not being extended you're clueless.

Next time ask your reps. Better yet, blame your reps if they voted Yes, not my reps. You can only control those you vote for.

But keep whinning, if it helps.

But we know you supported Ryan for VP.

Nothing does less good than tax cuts for the rich. There is
no trickle down and the money ends up in China or some
secret tax haven in the Caribbean (like Romney). No help
what-so-ever to the American economy.

Funny you ignore that the VP you voted for, voted for the Bill.

But you ignore this and you're upset with everyone else.

If you don't care about the repubs who allowed the Bill to pass, I don't either....keep whinning.
