    It provides a better picture of the fiscal differentials among presidencies. Showing change in nominal debt doesn't tell you all that much. For example, an overwhelming amount of debt during the early Reagan administration was inflated away, but you wouldn't be able to tell that given the chart you provided.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Yep, getting the Federal Govt. back to where it belongs, smaller and living by the Constitution, providing for the common defense, eliminating the unified budget thus removing Medicare and SS from the budget and eliminating any expense duplicated at the state level.

    I just don't understand people like you, what is it about liberalism that creates this kind of loyalty? All you ever can do is blame someone else. Reagan added 1.7 trillion to the debt while creating 17 million jobs. Bush added 4.9 trillion to the debt in 8 years while paying for 9/11 and increasing 7 million jobs from 2001-2008, Obama has added 6.4 trillion to the debt in 5 years while having a 2 million job increase but a working force 2 million less than when the recession began. I don't know why I waste posting numbers for you because you simply ignore them or don't understand them. You really have no concept as to the role of the Federal Govt. do you or the qualities of leadership.

    CNN Poll: GOP would bear the brunt of shutdown blame

    In a related story, Manny Gonzalez, the home plate umpire for the Cleveland / Tampa Bay wild card game, guaranteed pitcher Danny Salazar will have 12 strikeouts.

    No, what I point out and continue to point out is that if you are going to create debt you better generate a better return on that debt. Where is the return on the Obama debt. I grew up a Democrat, a loyal Democrat but grew out of it. That may happen to you someday when you realize what a fool the liberal elites have made out of you

    Do you honestly believe someone should cheer trillion dollar deficits that are just a little less than the previous year? Wow!

    You can bet your bippy that Mike Lee's office is getting an earful. Don't be surprised if this is his first and last term as senator.

    Are you really cheering the trillion dollar deficits because they are a little lower than the previous year? You cannot be this brainwashed? Wow!!

    I know exactly what I think which is why I asked the question. Your claims about your Senator are irrelevant because Utah is a conservative state and on that principle got it right. You really think I give a damn about a govt. employee getting a furlough knowing that they will get their back pay when the shutdown ends? You really believe that today's Democrat party has a clue what they are doing to the economy of this country or even care? I say they don't care because to them it is all about power and using people like you to get their lies out.
