    Too bad Republicans didn't adopt their own Sen. Coburn's back-in-black plan .
    Guess those shovels are still in transit for those shovel ready jobs that was supposed to create new taxpayers? Don't know about you but if you have a drop in revenue why would you propose higher spending? Name for me one, just one Obama budget that was equal to or lower than Bush's? By the way, Democrats controlled the Congress in 2007-2008 thus the purse strings and legislative process

    So then is it your contention that the 1973 oil crisis and the 1979 energy crisis, both of which contributed significantly to the rise in inflation while Carter was President and continued to impact inflation in the first 1-2 years of Reagan's Presidency, were somehow Reagan's fault?

    They dropped between 2008 and 2009. From 2009 on?

    2009 2,104,989
    2010 2,162,706
    2011 2,303,466

    An increase of $200 billion is a "drop"?

    Considering the 2007 Congress was controlled by Democrats, if you want to blame them for the loss of private sector jobs and the wrecked economy, that's fine by me.

    They also dropped from 2008 to 2010 and 2008 to 2011.
    You probably thought that was a good try .

    So you admit that your statement that they dropped from 2009 on was not correct. Thanks for that.

    Yes, they did drop from 2008-2010. Is that what Obama increased spending by 35%?

    Not at all--your spin dear.
    Revenues dropped in 2009, 2010, and 2011 from 2007 and 2008 levels.
    Republicans own the Recession, and Americans were the loser.
    Hence, a new party elected President .

    So Republicans were not President from 1969 to 1977.
    Nothing they did affected inflation .

    Yep, it is also interesting to see how many Fortune 500 Companies have moved to TX none of which are Federal. Wonder why? What exactly would the Obama economic numbers look like without TX? Guess there aren't any federal dollars going to California with its billions in debt. Keep spinning like a top
