    Bush's last six months almost lead to a Worldwide Economical Depression. Our largest
    banks began to fail and the stock market took a nose dive because of deregulation. He
    left our country on the brink of collapse. Let's never forget he approved tax cuts for the
    very rich, which has never created jobs for the poor.

    Who can ever forget 9/11 and Bush's deafness regarding the warnings? Who can ever forget
    Hurricane Katrina and Bush's lack of leadership and failure to react?

    He lied about the Iraq war, which has killed about 6,000 Americans, wounded or crippled
    for life about another 40,000. He deemphasized the Afghan war that was focused on
    Al Qaeda to do a poor job in Iraq. Of course, he placed both wars on credit

    He okayed Gitmo, the most inhumane detention center ever created by man and
    approved the use of torture.

    The Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Tribunal Foundation charged Bush and Cheney with war
    crimes and torture in absentia.
    Oh, God, here we go again, diversion to Bush. Better take your issue up with the Treasury Dept because Clinton took office with a 4.4 trillion dollar debt and left it at 5.7 trillion so there was no surplus. Obama inherited a 10.6 trillion dollar debt that is now almost 17 trillion.

    Your hatred of Bush is based upon a bunch of bs you have been fed by the media. Too bad that hatred has blinded you to the Obama failures.

    The rest of your post is simply more BDS, Bush Derangement Syndrome, please seek help

    Your opinion noted, where did you get this information and did you bother to see what Ted Kennedy and the Democrats proposed? Why is it that CBO claims the Medicare Part D Program cut expenses by billions? You are so full of misguided hatred towards Bush that you have no concept of what the alternatives were and what Medicare Part D actually did

    No. Why? For academic reasons since it was something else and did not pass. Or as a diversion from the obvious POS Bush 43 pushed through with dogged determination in service of Big Pharma?

    Obviously you have a passion for this topic and really don't want to address the CBO announced cuts in Medicare Prescription Drug expense reported this year. Wonder why and wonder where you get your information. Please show me current CBO numbers that show that Medicare Part D has increased costs?

    out of a 3.6 trillion dollar budget that included over a trillion dollars in deficits? Eliminate the entire cost of Medicare Part D and you still have over a trillion dollars in deficits.

    Not really. But it's kinda stupid to have done, IMO.

    But it's nice to see that spending cuts are really, really needed, unless of course it's a $55 B annual gift to Big Pharma coming from a Rep Admin, which pushed it in a full court press, it became law and is now costing us buckos, and has for many years, right through to this last year, which of course is way better than something a big poopyhead Dem like Ted K proposed, which cost us exactly $0.00.

    "Righty apologist" does not even begin to describe your level a hypocrisy.

    And your obvious support for big govt. is noted and shows the level of your ignorance when it comes to fiscal responsibility. Somehow private business getting revenue is a gift but the govt. taking tax revenue from the American people and wasting it isn't a problem? 55 billion gift to big Pharma vs govt. price controls and more dependence? I will take your so called give to big Pharma which actually employs people

    Very liberal means knowing very little about how the private sector works and the benefits of competition to pricing.

    Nice to see you defending spending programs Rep cook up. Now name a new major spending program by Obama. Oops, no need. I already know: Obamacare!!!! Covers millions who had no insurance, instead of merely raising the price of prescription drugs, and costs double that of MC-D ($110 B / year). $55 B for nothing is okie doke. But $110 B to cover millions? COMMUNIST!!! Barack Joe Stalin Obama. Run for your lives, kids. The black reds are coming!!!!
