    Plus you must also consider the lost FIT revenue due to the recession.

    Medicare expense has actually dropped since Part D but don't let the facts get in the way of your opinions.

Do any of you have any idea what is going to happen to debt service when the interest rates are forced to be raised due to upcoming inflation?

    In 3 years Obama has added 4.6 trillion to the debt which is now 15.2 trillion, 2012 projections are another 1.1 trillion so Obama will add more debt in than the entire Debt of the country up to 2006. Bush debt 4.9 trillion in 8 years, Obama 5.7 trillion in 4
    Right back atcha ... which Obama policies spent some 9 trillion since he's been in office?

    Isn't it a leaders job to take responsibility and to initiate policies that put people back to work?

    Obama took office in January 2009 but did not set the budget for January 2009.
    Obama did not cause the recession nor the drop in revenue that goes with it.
    Obama did not create the bulk of our current tax and regulatory situation.
    Obama doesn't have complete control over congress and never did.

    Etc.

    Just looking at the change in debt from point A to point B is a foolish oversimplification of the issue.

    You blame Bush for the 4.9 trillion but not Obama for the 4.6 trillion in three years. Backatcha

    I see, so now Obama is responsible for spending before he even became president?

    Who approved the 2009 budget, a Democrat or Republican Congress?
