    All is fair in politics.

    LOL. I'd say I could tell you were a liberal and know you were lying because your lips were moving but this is a message board and I can't see your lips.

    You said we spend 1.5 t on defense per year. Conservative pointed out to you that even at the height of the Iraq war, we didn't reach that number.

    Instead of leaving it at that and moving on, you decided to post an article that proved exactly what Conservative said. Then to make things appear like you knew like you knew what you where talking about, you added a list of additional spending that included NASA, Homeland Security, VA (that's not defense spending) and so on. I don't even know where you got that list from. I didn't see it in the article that you linked and the article you linked topped defense spending at about 800 billon one year.

    So lets review math. Does 800 billion equal or exceed 1.5 trillion? Only when a liberal puts some liberal spin on it.

    So now we know all we need to know about you.

    I realize liberals are no where near the sharpest knifes in any drawer. But here's a hint to you. Don't link an article proving the point you try to disprove.

    The wiki link I posted showed the US spending over $1.4T per year on defense. That is rounds off to 1.5 Trillion, in my book.

    The bills he is holding up aren't to repeal Obamacare and there is no guarantee of a vote but the bills should be allowed for debate. The point is the GOP has been called obstructionist when the real obstruction is Harry Reid

    Total Spending $1.030–$1.415 trillion

    Military budget of the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    That's all military related spending. I'd read the entire expenditure for 2012 to see how they arrived at that number.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Sure, but how did you feel when republicans were doing this? How will you feel in the future?

    Are you really saying republicans don't obstruct as well? You've got to kidding.

    You think that all the VA spending goes to the Iraq War Vets? You think Afghanistan was justified? You think NASA is defense spending? Homeland Security is its own separate department and not defense spending. Why don't you add all the other line items in the budget into defense spending just to be "fair?"

    Guess you have no pride as you have no problem embarrassing yourself.

    Didn't respond to the post, I see. How can the Republican House be called Obstructionist when dozens of bills are sitting in Harry Reid's desk? you see obstruction seems to be when liberals don't get what they want and thus throw a temper tantrum
