I would hardly count getting deeper into debt "winning". It's like going on a gameshow, winning the grand prize, then having to pay the show for the prize.

I wonder if BO would let his wife spend ten times more than the income they bring into the household. Is this how he wants his kids to live...well above their means???? How stupid is he??? His kids and future grandchildren will be losers because of his failure to understand that this latest debacle's outcome was not a win for our kids and grandchildren. What stupid people...sweep 'em out!

Except for about a year during 18351836, the United States has continuously held a public debt since the US Constitution legally went into effect on March 4, 1789. Public debt as a percentage of GDP reached its highest level during Harry Truman's first presidential term, during and after World War II, but fell rapidly in the post-World War II period, and reached a low in 1973 under President Richard Nixon. Debt as a percentage of GDP has consistently increased since then, except during the presidencies of Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton.

Sad, child, just read this poor, uneducated child's post. Primary education, child, then debate with the adults.

You poor thing, you never succeed with your foul attempts at humor. My mom would never get near your minute appendage. My father was a real man, a Marine...Semper Fi, Dad!!! Shoo, back in your cage.

wow.. how impressive....a marine...your typical block head who couldn't hack it in the business world, so he went on the government welfare program..
bhwhahahahha.... you have a lot to learn about real men, dumb$-hit.....
Idiot, my father never went on welfare...he worked for a living until the day he died. He was a WWII vet...one of the finest. Show a little respect for those who fought in our wars so that folks like you can spew more of your vitriol and nonsense at will.

oblunder signed the debt bill midnite the 16th

on the 17th the debt raced past 17trillion dollars
with the addition of the largest single increase of 330 billion dollars. the 330 billion was the 'extraordinary' measures after they froze the debt clock on May 2013 25million under the debt ceiling.

proving the debt limit is a sham, the ceiling was breached and obama just cooked the books as he continued to plunge the country 70billion a month deeper in debt with no controls whatsoever by the legislature which supposedly controls the 'purse' of the country. obama cut a hole in the bottom of the purse and spends it on who knows what since the 330billion was not in any legislative budget.
