    You want badly to insert inflation into the numbers, well insert inflation into those numbers? Those are the numbers that the American people are looking at and actually feel.

    Re: Republicans block Obama jobs bill

    Not once in these posts did I reply to the same post. These are all separate posts by Conservative. Don't know if this board allows it or not but this is starting to schmack of one of those paid spammers who get paid per post and target message boards. Especially because of his penchant for cut and paste and not actually writing his own posts so often.

    This appears to be a new format for the same message you have posted hundreds of times here at DP. What makes you think this format is any better than the last one? Or that anyone is even interested in reading it? Printing this information on a roll of toilet paper would me more useful, in my opinion.

    I've seen I think three formats of where he cuts and pastes the same information. Pasting the same crap over and over makes for good google results so if you want to propagate a lie on the internet, cut and paste. You change your format occasionally so that mods don't catch on.

    I mention this because the House and Senate were both controlled by the Democrats in 2006 & 2007. Going into 2008, the House, Senate, and Executive Branch were controlled by Democrats. And, yet, GDP continued to fall until the 3rd quarter of 2009 - no rally of consumer confidence. Finally, by the end of 2011, it's caught back up to where it was at the beginning of 2008.

    Spending is not going away:


    • The aging of the population and increases in per-person costs throughout the U.S. health care system (in both the public and private sectors) will increase the cost of meeting longstanding federal commitments to seniors and people with disabilities. Together, these factors will drive up spending for the three largest domestic programs — Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security. Limiting total federal spending to 21 percent of GDP despite these developments would have enormous implications for those programs as well as the rest of government.
    • The federal government’s responsibilities have grown since 2000, with developments at home and abroad pushing spending above the average for earlier decades. These responsibilities include homeland security (in the aftermath of September 11, 2001​); aid to veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars (many of whom need health care and income support); education (with the federal government providing more resources to improve educational quality and outcomes); the Medicare prescription drug benefit (which Congress added in 2003); and health reform (which extends health coverage to tens of millions of Americans who would otherwise be uninsured and will increase federal spending, even though it will reduce the deficit).
    • Spending for interest on the federal government’s debt also will be substantially higher in coming decades than it was during the past 40 years. By the end of 2010 — largely as a result of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the large Bush-era tax cuts, and the current severe recession — debt held by the public will be nearly twice as large (as a percentage of GDP) as in 2001, with a commensurate increase in interest costs.

    Federal Spending Target of 21 Percent of GDP Not Appropriate Benchmark for Deficit-Reduction Efforts — Center on Budget and Policy Priorities
    Again, you ignore that FICA funds SS and Medicare for the aging population and yet you support cutting taxes that fund those programs. Brilliant strategy

    You are right, liberals have no use for facts and actual data. Says a lot about you and all other Obama supporters
