    Very nice strawman - no one is questioning the debt incurred. We're controlling the amount of future debt.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Bush hid nothing, the debt is what it is and includes the cost of the wars. Stop trying to defend your false statements. There is so much you don't know yet claim you do.
