    So, you want to reward congress with more money because they were stupid and spent money they didn't have?

    Are those the values you teach your children?

    Right. Just like our Grandparents did when they didn't pay down the debt they ran up from WWII. You are being duped by those that are afraid we will take more of their billions they can't ever spend. They have been cleaning up lately and are afraid we will realize it is unsustainable. They are right about that, the jig is up.

    Really?

    You mean the compound interest on the double digit inflation he inherited had no part in it?

    Besides, You are in error. It isn't six times, it's just less than 3. About 2.8 times.

    So let's fix 2 problems at once and let construction workers go back to paying taxes instead of receiving benefits. You would rather give them food stamps instead of working?
    Subsidized mass transit is also HIGHLY efficient. It saves billions in highway construction and maintenance. But you are blind to that too.

    Where do you think highway funds come from? And don't forget you take money away from bureaucrats you aren't going to be liked very much

    Reagan spent his way out of his recession like he was told, I don't hold it against him for that. It's denying that he did that is reprehensible. He also raised taxes so that alone makes him far better than GW Bush who buried us with debt from his ridiculous tax cuts.

    I'd just like to know when it is that the liberals and RINO's will seriously address balancing the budget and reducing debt? How high does the debt have to be before it wakes these idiots up - $25 trillion, $30 trillion? Never?

    All Obummer wants is a no limit credit card for the duration of his drunken-sailor-spending presidency.

    Nonsense.

    In most states it does nothing more than suck money away from needed improvements in highways and normal maintenance. People driving cars get clipped funding such BS government programs.

    Look at 1947, 1948, 1951, 1956, and 1969. The debt did in fact decrease these fiscal years. Look at the link I resented in post #1533.

    You show zero awareness of what has happened to the construction industry out West here. And they don't get food stamps year round. They've always used unemployment on the off season. And the bit about mass transit is absolute bull****. It saves nothing in highway construction and maintenance. People who can drive their own, do. Mass transit actually adds to highway construction and maintenance budgets.
