    The Democrats clearly didn't want either budget while Ryan's budget at least had some support.

    Poor BHO didn't get anyone's support.

    At the time Obama beecame president, Reagan and both Bush's alone increased the debt by 8 of the 10 trillion that was passed on to Obama. It still wasn't a problem for you then?

    Only after Obama became president and the debt increased another 12% while he's in the White House did it become a problem for you?

    Can't say I understand why it's just recently a problem for you, I think the problem began under Reagan when it it began growing as a percentage of GDP.
    You asked me and I told you.

    Not at all as evidenced by the fact that you cannot even cite the Obama economic plan for the rest of his first term. he has shot ever arrow he has and the results are as follows

    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!

    Everyone knew the Reagan economic plan and the fact that you refuse to check out the actual results of Reagan 2 years after the end of the recession says it all.

    I'll be happy to rectify any flaws you might find
    This part
    My understanding is that the Democrats had control of the Presidency, the House, and Senate until January of this year.

    I know, I know. I'm just amazed how the debt can go from $0.9T and 32% of GDP to $12T and 83% of GDP before it finally became a problem for you. Seems to me to be like not having a problem with a flood in your house until the waters reach the roof. I do know for some people, the national debt wasn't a problem until Obama became president. Is that the case with you?

    Here's a link to Ryans plan. As anyone (rightwingers excepted) can see, it is sparse on detailed cuts

    Hey, you're right. I did word that poorly. They controlled all three until January of this year when, thanks to a horrified electorate, the Republicans took over Congress.

    But two years in absolute control brought nothing. That must be disappointing.

    It's OK If You're a Rightwinger IOKIYAR

    Rightwingers believe the first $10T of debt is not a problem.
