    Republicans only call for deficit reduction when they are not in power. All Republican administrations have increased the deficit and the debt. In fact $12 trillion of our current debt is from GOP leadership.
    President Clinton is the only modern President to balance the budget although our debt did go up from the interest on Reagans contribution.

    You keep pasting this laughably debunked graph all over the forums. It looks like you drew on it with crayons. It's embarrassing.

    Bill Clinton borrowed money from SS and stuffed it with IOUs to pay down PUBLIC DEBT. There was still a NET GAIN to national debt over the course of his Presidency and we were in a recession when he left office.

    Improper Payment Progress | The White House

    Obama's "Government" is already admitting they are wasting 125B a year. Why should we give them more money again when they are already taking in 2+T a year as it is right now?

    Now, because many of the targeted programs - such as Unemployment Insurance and Medicaid - are paying out more benefits as the economic downturn creates more demand for these benefits, the total number paid out in improper payments increased to $125 billion last fiscal year even though the overall error rate declined. This is an unfortunate result of the recession and of basic math: the more that is paid out, the more paid out in error even if the overall rate declines.

    No, I believe that the republicans will fold yet again

    But I might be underestimating the stupidity of republicans. That's not hard to do

    Like the Democrats did as you so gleefully pointed out about 10 minutes ago?

    I don't remember anyone in this thread saying that this is something only repubs do

    Those decisions would ultimately lie with the Treasury. Ultimately, once key assets were likely auctioned off, debt obligations that exceed immediate tax revenue would go unfulfilled absent a increase in debt authority.

    Yeah, you're right just as I believe the President will fold as well...again.

    But I might be underestimating the stupidity of republicans. That's not hard to do
    If you change the above 'republicans' to 'politicians' you would be quite right...it is getting quite nauseating!
