Besides, there isn't any money in the Treasury Department because the Treasury Department is already 16.5 trillion dollars in debt.
If you're too ignorant to answer the question of where the money will come from to pay for Obama's government, just read a little when someone who actually knows what a source of money is might answer.

I get it.

If an oil company makes a billion dollars in profit, handing then $200,000 is a subsidy.

If an oil company makes a billion dollars in profit, handing them a $200,000 tax break is not.

What f**k*ng question? Probvably one you used to avoid answering a question about where Obama was when the White House ordered the Americans in Benghazi hung out to dry and watched Al Qaeda kill them on real-time video, or why Obama lied for two weeks covering up an Al Qaeda attack on the United States, or avoiding answering the question about where the money will come from to pay for Obama's government.
Can you enlighten us on why the Republican congress cut funding for the security of US embassies abroad and perhaps how Obama or his defence dept was going to change anything on the outcome when nearest support was 2 hrs away. Do you think they might have taken a time out to wait for the cavalry to arrive ? This crap is typical tea bagger white noise, it has no factual background just a bunch of fox news wannabe's.

Boy, this like an Abbott an' Costello movie, you axed us if we had any questions. Then, I said, "Yes, marine pussy-boy, I have one since you axed, "Since the "war" in Iraq was a complete fabrication designed to allow the Bush Administration to funnel cash to its corporate family friends and those of Carlisle Group; and, given that we lost the war miserably after killing 600,000+ Iraqis for no reason, and given that there were never any weapons of mass destruction nor did anything remotely resembling democracy did we import with the bushels of cash we paid to the very people who were trying to kill us after we invaded their country, was the Surge a success or a failure. It's a yes or no question. "

Now. Befo' you dismiss my question as a rhetorical ploy, you need to consider how many times you axed you own rhetorical "questions" never expecting to get an answer. However, I expect an answer. A yes or no answer which is the same thing Senator McCain just demanded of Chuck Hagel. It's a simple question: in light of the plain as day accepted realities I described, was the Surge a success or a failure. It's a yes or no question, pussy-boy.

It's not surprising that an authoritarian personality type like yourself thinks that the the police should be involved in schoolroom problems that should be solved by the teachers and the principle.
This is the NRAs dream; the pipeline from school to prison. This is fueled by private prison contributions to politicians. That's who elected our Governor Rick Scott.
You're a stupid woman.
leosanabananarama will be making fun of you for misspelling "principal" as "principle".

If you work in a bakery and earn $50k/year and are taxed at a rate of 28% but your neighbor who also earns $50/year but, as an employee in the subsidized shoe manufacturing industry, is taxed at a rate of 15% is he being subsidized?

U.S. Department of The Treasury.

The Department of the Treasury operates and maintains systems that are critical to the nation's financial infrastructure, such as the production of coin and currency, the disbursement of payments to the American public, revenue collection, and the borrowing of funds necessary to run the federal government.

So now we all know where the president will get the money to run the government.

While DBWriter is off working on his bunker, I think we may be able to resolve his dilemma. Once we can determine WHO spent the money then we can determine WHERE the money will come from to pay for it. So, first things first, according to Article I, section 8 of the Constitution it would appear that it was congress that spent the money. Once we agree on this then we can examine which congress was responsible for this massive debt.

hint: unprovoked war and deregulated banks

When he comes back we'll have the answer for him!
