    If Obama has generated a reduction in the deficit what economic policy did he put in place that did that? You think his proposal of a 3.77 trillion dollar budget lowered the deficit? What exactly has Obama cut? How much do you think those 22 million unemployed/under employed/discouraged workers are adding to the treasury?

It is interesting that everything today is still Bush's fault and the economic results today are no where to be found in the Obamabot posts, gee, wonder why?
    I love it when conservatives pretend that there policies of deregulation and tax cuts for Paris Hilton, after failing on a massive scale and resulting in the largest macroeconomic turndown since the Great Depression, didn't result in any lasting harm.

    Selective memory is the mother's milk of conservative "logic".

    Really? Obama ended the Iraq War? did he negotiate the Status of Force agreement in October 2008? He is really amazing, isn't he?

    Gee, imagine that a 844 billion dollar stimulus program adding to GDP. That is brilliant economic policy which I am sure has generated the incredible economic results we have today like 6.4 trillion added to the debt, 22 million unemployed/under employed/discouraged workers, 48 million on food stamps, and incredible economic growth of 2%. Yes, that European style economy is booming, high unemployment, high debt, and low economic growth. Congratulations!

    Ignoring data and facts is the foundation of the liberal playbook. Cannot wait until you get the bill that your checking or savings account cannot handle. Maybe then you will wake up.

    1. Gave tax cuts to the wealthiest Americans and deregulated the financial industry, resulting inevitably in a huge recession.

    2. Started two vanity wars that were fiascos and cost us $3T.

    3. Engaged in torture, dishonoring the traditions of America and making us a pariah nation.

    4. Practiced crony capitalism on a massive scale, enriching his buddies at Haliburton while US soldiers died.

    5. Reduced the collective IQ level of the US by at least 10 point with his knownothingism and subliteracy.

    6. The Bush Meltdown destroyed about $T in middle class wealth meaning kids didn't go to college, people got worse health care, people's careers were ruined and their retirement compromised on a massive scale.

    Will that do?

    1.Aw yes, keeping more of what you earn is an expense to the liberal govt, because people never spend their money the right way. Seems that selective tax cuts are only thing that matters because those evil rich people only bury their case in the back yard

    2. Starting of two wars was supported by the Democrats who controlled the Senate but unless I am wrong a couple planes took down the WTC but then again the only people that forgot were liberals.

    3. yes, torturing dishonored the traditions of America but beheadings and burning of American contractors isn't a problem in the liberal world

    4. crony capitalism? you mean like giving exemptions to supporters and big donors from Obamacare? You mean like turning GM over to the unions and screwing the bond holders?

    5. Reducing the selective IQ? LOL, would love to see your proof of that but from what I can see, Obamabot IQ doesn't seem to be very high.

    6. Bush meltdown? Amazing how the Democrats controlling the Congress allowed that to happen and had no responsibility. Aw yes, all that middle class wealth destroyed, how?

    You have a bad case of Bush derangement syndrome,none of this has anything to do with the Obama results the last five years but great diversion and distortion of reality. Seek help

    Did you ever take a civics class in high school? I remember, a few decades ago, learning about how bills are passed and put into law. The bill is introduced, there are hearings, proposed amendments, a vote, if it is passed it goes onto the senate, they do their thing, pass it on to the president or send it back to the house. If it is sent to the president, he signs it into law or vetoes it. If it is signed, and a party believes it is unconstitutional, they can challenge it in court. If they lose, the bill will be law, and there's one thing they can do about it: win the next election. There wasn't anything in class about threatening to shut down the government and harm millions of Americans in an effort to get the law repealed. Is that government or organized crime? How in the world could you or anybody else accept this disgusting display of theatrics? How could you watch Americans be harmed by this when AMERICA VOTED FOR OBAMA. THEY VOTED DEMOCRATS INTO CONGRESS. Just because you don't like it doesn't mean you should approve of blowing up the capitol. What is wrong with you people? That's a real question. Why don't you understand how the government works?
    A working class hero is something to be

    No one has said that! The reference was to "Single Payer," which the government would control, as they currently do Medicare.
