The fact that the current debt is more than $14 trillion, if we generously assign the deficit to Obama from 2009 onward, despite the fact that 2009 budget was propose by Bush, it still only only adds up to less than $4.5 trillion - how is that wrong to say that "It wasn't Obama who created all that debt"?
Of course you can always blame the budget on Democratic congress, it seems to be that all the Republican Presidents from Reagan, Bush Sr, to Bush Jr were all victims of the Democratic Congress in conservatives' script. What I wonder is how do they justify that with the macho image some conservatives like to fool themselves into believing at the same time.
LOL @ 49% capital gains. That would wreck our economy even harder. You want to see lack of hiring, that will guarantee it. The more I look at that so called budget the more I laugh. Its terrible. No one would dare open a business in that taxing environment. Maybe you need to check and see who is actually in the mutual gains pool: any American with a retirement plan that consists of a mutual fund, annuity, or 401K or dang near anything else.
Puhlease, even liberal loveland Europe is busily rolling back some of the same crap you are peddling---BECAUSE IT HASN'T WORKED.
Now, you're just posting fiction. There is no "porkulus bill" and UI benefits have not been extended endlessly. And even if they were, that doesn't undue all the wasteful spending passed by republicans and signed by bush*this is also incorrect. the FY 2009 Budget that was passed by the Democrats who controlled Congress at the time did not include a Trillion Dollar Porkulus bill, endless extensions of unemployment benefits, or any of the other spending that Obama added once he was in. and there was no 2010 budget; just a series of continuing resolutions.
Both bush* and Obama (and both parties) are responsible for Education Deform. That still doesn't undue all the wasteful spending passed by republicans and signed by bush*like what? NCLB? authored by Ted Kennedy?
It has already been explained that the deficit was blown up by bush* and the republicansEDIT:
BTW... the U.S. Treasury link from the article (you know, the one you didn't read) is right there... you can plug in the dates and verify it. Here's the excerpt:

I'll wait... but my guess is you'll side step, make an excuse or make an accusation instead of discussing the facts. You're move.
