    To me it's pretty obvious there was arm twisting by Boehner to get enough Pub ayes to complement the Dem ayes to pass the thing while at the same time allowing the Pub nays to be able to say they were nays.

    Now that it goes to the Senate all the Senate Pubs can posture & bitch & moan all they want to no effect.

    On top of that, it's being said no one in the entire Country has legal standing to challenge Obama's sovereignty in the Courts regarding his decisions re Obamacare implementation .

    What a Country ... brings a tear to the eye, dunnit?

    Mornin' Bubba. Well.....it worked out. Lucky for House Leadership.

    Im not a liberal.
    There isn't a dimes worth of difference between a socialist and a liberal as both spend someone else's money all in the name of compassion yet never getting compassionate results.

    What a great record Obama has, he ran record deficits of over a trillion dollars a year which has never been generated in history, drops that deficit to 680 billion and takes credit for the fastest reduction in history. Socialists are so easy and have such low standards

    I think you are splitting hairs...I believe that they are speaking of trends, not exact increase, or decrease...But what do I know?

    He inherited a deficit of 1.2 trillion and added $200 billion to it.

    If you're able to stretch or squish the y-axis by any arbitrary amount, you can probably find a dozen other years that "match."

    It allows them to claim mediocrity as a worthy objective and feel elite and special in doing so. As long as they feel good about themselves nothing else matters.

    What he inherited was a budget proposal that wasn't passed or signed. Obama signed the budget in March 2009 and only in the liberal world does that make it Bush's budget. Obama and the media brainwashed a lot of people. I expected more from you than to pass on this false information

    Budget year of the U.S. runs from October to Sept. Bush left office in January without a budget and the continuing resolutions didn't generate a 1.2 trillion deficit. Obviously the Obama February stimulus for shovel ready jobs didn't create the promised revenue either.

    Ummm...you know the deficit was caused by a drop in revenue rather than a spike in spending, right?
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    Then I guess many conservatives are liberal. You know the ones that like to spend someone else's money for wars, war on drugs, and social conservatism in the name of compassion yet never getting compassionate results. Hello my liberal friend!

    The deficits were caused by both a reduction in revenue and increase in expenses. Did those shovels ever arrive for those shovel ready jobs? The last Bush budget proposal was 3 trillion dollars. Obama proposed a 3.77 trillion budget this year. Is that an increase in spending? Let me know the last year Obama spent 3 trillion dollars?

    Part of the CBO projected deficit included TARP which was a loan that was mostly repaid. Please show where that credit went against the projected Bush deficits?
