The Mandate is the $14 Trillion Debt hanging over our heads as Obama's intends to Raise it another $3-$4 Trillion over the next 2 yrs.

Obama's course is set for 'Destruct' and we cannot allow it.

Mr. Bush and I left Washington with a fully balanced budget.

The GOP refuses to let the Bush Tax cuts expire to pay down their debt they skyrocketed under the Bush years. And yet they refuse to cut their own congressional pay and taxpayer paid healthcare benefits to make up for the lost tax revenue.

It was set for destruct by extending the Bush Tax cuts.

Bush and Cheney are Gone so Why is your guy Obama on track for adding more to the Debt in 4 yrs less time?

I hope your argument isn't that just because Bush did it with Democrats, including Obama's, help, Obama can do it as president too. That's the kind of argument that makes you lose Mid-Term & presidential Elections...

Bush and Cheney and the GOP/TEA contributed to the debt. It's pretty dihonest to solely blame Obama.

Even now the House GOP refuse to cut their congressional pay and taxpayer paid healthcare benefits until they pay down their debt.

I stated all the facts. It's your dishonesty that is evident.

The gop House Cut their budget. When pelosi came in, she Increased their Budget.

I think all in congress should take a pay cut but 4 year of filibuster proof dems didn't produce it so how is a split congress going to do that?

Also, the bigger salary that needs a cut is Obama's. He makes more than twice Congress. You'll get some credibility when you can begin stating some facts.

No you didn't. You left out the fact that the GOP started the spiraling debt.

I did recite the 200+ year history of our debt for obvious reasons. Obama is president.

It it Obama's responsibility to Man Up and put forward Deficit Reductions for His Budgets, not 10 years into fantasy land.

Hypocrite,
Has it dawned on you that Obama & Congress will not solve Obama's Deficit Crisis by blaming anyone from years ago?

Heal thyself. That means do what everyone else has to do. Man Up & Balance Your Current Budget.

People gave Obama & Dems a chance to put their money where their mouth was for 2 years without a counter balance and saw the dems were worse. Blaming bush for 2 straight years only shows they didn't have a good plan for governing. Now the country is worse off and they continue pointing to a bogey man long gone.
