    You should probably stop the bleeding and give a transfusion to replace the blood that's already been lost.

    What do you base that "fact" on?

    See following link, and scroll down to "The Federal Government Is Recording Chronic Deficits":

    What?


    It's a question... do you want to embrace and foment Parasite Nation or do you want to fight for a government free of fomenting class warfare?
    "Parasite Nation"? "Class warfare"?

    Hell... let Parasite Nation take it all.
    What?

    What was wrong with 28% as agreed to by Democrats back in Reagan's years?
    Lets see here when your government is not bringing in enough revenue and you want to get rid of the debt and deficit lowering taxes especially on the richest is not the answer. Plus thats when the deficit exploded was under these tax rates.

    So are you done using all these rhetoric?

    Democrats did not do as they agreed... to cut spending.
    Reagan's tax cuts generated more tax revenue... there was full employment and wages increased... and the Dems spent it all and more.

    You do know what Baseline Budgeting is?

    The Great Society.
    The Fair Deal.
    ObamaKare. (Coming soon to a debt laden country near you).

    PONZI SCHEMES... that will do to America what they did to NY Democrat Bernie Madoff.

    Parasite Nation creating dependency... debt... and misery... everywhere it has been tried.
    The Clintons are what happens...
    when you have NO MORAL COMPASS.

    No, you should almost certainly stop the bleeding, transfusions may carry their own significant risks however. My physician took the chance of no-transfusion to avoid tranfusion related injury (blood-borne disease), and let me be anemic for some months to recoup naturally.

    Can't go that far with such analogies.

    That only seems to support what he is saying.
