    What it is, specifically, is 58% support in one chamber, and majority opposition in the other chamber. In other words, if only Democrats were polled, the resolution would not have passed.

    You should try to be a little less obvious with your revisionist history. Otherwise it just blows up in your face.

    Guess the Treasury Dept didn't get the memo that it was TRILLIONS later. Bush had 5 trillion added to the debt in 8 years, Obama has added 4 trillion in less than 3

    I want to know why it matters 10 years later when that isn't even the thread topic. "Your" President has a record that isn't selling as evidenced by his JAR. All you can do is divert from that record. Obama was handed a AAA rating by GW Bush

    Except, as always, you allocate one of Bush's trillions to Obama.

    No, Bush was in office from October 1 to January 20 so how did he create a trillion dollars for Obama? Obama didn't have to spend the TARP money left him or the stimulus money or for that matter anything in the budget so it is amazing the liberal belief that Bush added a trillion dollars in 4 months. Just goes to show that many don't have a clue about the fiscal year of the U.S. In spite of the many times I have shown that to you, you don't understand either.

    Subject: Question for all of you

    If you can answer this correctly, you can answer the question on what action to take on raising the Federal debt ceiling. You come home from work and find there has been a sewer backup and you have sewage up to your ceilings.

    What do you do……raise the ceilings, or pump out the ****?

    You're right. Tea party thought has to go!!!!!!

    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.

    As you've been told about a 100 times, Presidents formulate budgets, and create spending, for the NEXT year. Thus Obama was saddled with Bush's spending from 2008.
