So spreading it out or having the spending hit in future years doesn't really capture the spending of that current year and makes for a disingenuous argument. He kicked the can down the road on the spending is all... it's not like it didn't happen.
    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.

    Yea, you are right, but after checking the numbers we better change our tactics. Looks to me like 2010 numbers were higher than 2009 even with TARP and Stimulus. Hmmmm

    But that isn't today and for today is all we should be concerned about. Right now we need to get Bush out of the WH so Obama doesn't have to deal with these numbers

    Obama economic results in 2011, .4% GDP and 1.3% GDP growth in 2011, 24+ million unemployed or under employed Americans in 2011, 4 trillion added to the debt in less than 3 years, and a downgrade of the U.S. credit rating. Rising Misery index 7.83 to 12.67. First President in U.S. History to have our credit downgraded on his watch!

    What happened? Did the Chinese turn him down again?

    In any case, it's good to see that Barrack Obama has spending under control. Perhaps the Credit Rating people weren't made aware of this.

    I think we need to hide the following from the public

    Total

    2010 budget 3650.6

    2009 Budget 3615.6

    2008 Budget 3063.9

    Or perhaps they were more concerned that Obama and the Republican-led House will never come to an agreement on how to rectify the debt problem.

    My understanding is that the Democrats had control of the Presidency, the House, and Senate until January of this year. Did the debts only begin accumulating after that?

    I read somewhere that the Republicans, with the encouragement of the Tea Party, wanted to get spending under control, in the form of spending cuts and a balanced budget Amendment, but this was discouraged by the President and his supporters.

    It seems the President's only suggestion to solve the debt problem so far is that 'the rich' should pay more. He does not appear to be encumbered by imagination.
