    Bill Clinton benefited from the "peace dividend" created in the 80's but the fact is Clinton took a 4.4 trillion dollar debt and turned it into a 5.7 trillion dollar debt doing so with a Republican Congress most of his term.

    Those repaid TARP funds should go under "revenue". So, if anyone can produce a chart or a series of charts that reflect a growth in revenue from March 2009 to present, perhaps we can figure out if TARP funds were actually repaid or not.

    Conservative, there's something that's right up your alley. (And I'm being polite here; fact is you are known as the resident charts and stats guy here. Consider it a compliment for once. )

    So, it was the fault of the republican congress? I know this as you told me the democrat controlled congress excused Bush as everything was their fault. Right Mr. Pot?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    And so was the president. I do think that the governator and the presidunce had more influence over the economy than a mayor

    Watch it, you are dealing with someone who runs to the Mods when challenged to get you thread banned. I want you to remain here doing a great job. Those people I ignore and will never communicate with again

    There was no peace divident. Military spending increased. And the increase in the debt was the slowest increase in the last several decades, and far slower than under the big spending republicans

    More liberals should pay attention to what is really happening
    And hasn't President Obama said he's like to change the tax code to make it fair for everyone? I'd think such a measure would likely eliminate "free riders" all around no matter which side of the economic divide you're on.

    Any debt is the responsibility of the Congress and the President. When will you admit to that reality.
