The problem that liberals have is they want to blame the debt on the wars and as the line items show that just isn't the case. Much of the problem is Obama spending too much and not putting enough people back to work with a pro growth economic policy. You don't pay for a 3.77 trillion dollar budget with 22 million unemployed/under employed/discouraged workers not paying much if any in Federal income taxes
    one you don't care aout the unemployed and I will quote you again if need be. Two it was the Bush tax cuts that created the 47%.

    Glad to see your leaning, Liberaltarian where you never have to respond to the negative economic numbers and performance and can always blame someone else

    Schooled. But somehow refractory to rudimentary education!

    You are an embarrassment to actual Conservatives. And the sad thing is...you don't recognize it.
    Keep trying to wiggle out of your own ignorance. Love being schooled by someone from that politically correct area known as Chicago. Apparently you don't have to respond to actual data and facts because of course being from Chicago you make your facts. Corruption is the new normal in Chicago so is ignorance of the data. Please post where I said Obama increased deficits primarily by spending? you do understand that 22 million unemployed/under employed/discouraged workers have nothing to do with spending? What is it about Obama and the liberal ideology that creates people like you? Guess you are used to partisan, ghetto politics

    Feel free, go for it. Long term unemployed is the new Obama normal and the more people he can get to drop out of the labor force the more people like you trumpet his economic numbers all because people dropping out of the labor force aren't counted in the official unemployment numbers

    As a conservative and econ major, stop embarrassing us! You not only know frighteningly little, but your head is also filled with incorrect information!

    I have given you the opportunity to prove me wrong economically and you haven't even tried to do that. Where you people are always fooled is that you believe theory is reality and works. Street smarts is real life experience dictating human behavior, something theory ignores. Liberal social programs in theory sound great but I reality are disasters as they destroy incentive and create greater govt. dependence. Threegoofs and you are prone to believe the textbooks and ignore reality thus theory in your world trumps actual results.

    As a libertarian I'm for cutting all government spending unlike hypocritical conservatives like you, who feel the military is a sacred cow and should never be cut.
