They are right about that, the jig is up.

    Most ignorant of the facts statement ever. Right after WWII paying off the debt was a priority for government.

    We have run deficits for 63 of the last 73 years. You tell me. What is the norm? What good does paying down debt do for the US economy?

    It's balance. Having no debt is a bad thing and too much debt is a bad thing. Easier to balance and repair balance from the no debt side of the scale.

    Do you understand the difference between running up debt and getting nothing for it vs. creating debt and generating strong economic results?

    Hmm. Like GW Bush did? Results are always relative. Running up the debt and causing a worldwide financial melt down is bad. There we agree

    So do I have this right, GW Bush created 4.9 trillion dollars I debt over 8 years and that justifies Obama creating 6.4 trillion in five? Is that liberal logic? You keep buying what Obama and left leaning economist tell you. you do realize that left leaning economists have an agenda, don't you? How does that massive debt benefit you and your family? How would a European socialist economy benefit you and your state?

    The Europeans based their "socialist" policies on "advice" they got from the U.S. after WWII. They actually did better at it than us, but we will catch up.
    The Germans have done really well with our policies and have a much happier and more secure population as I'm sure you know. We could learn from them now. We certainly won''t go backwards.

    The European economy is based upon govt. spending being the largest component of their GDP. We have a private sector economy in this country at least for the time being.

    When legislators are elected to legislate and create impasse, chaos, and shutdown, it can be directly compared to a toddler throwing a temper tantrum. The Repubs and T'baggers are going to pay at the ballot box for this immature kidnapping of the legislative process.

    In your dreams perhaps. In reality many of those representatives are doing just what their constituency wants from them. And this IS the legislative process. The two things that no one wants to see as they are being made - laws and sausages.
