    Obama’s Spending: ‘Inferno’ or Not?

    9 out of the 12 Spending appropriations bills of FY 2009, a budget that was finished in OCTOBER were signed by Obama.

    That article didnt count Obama's stimulus either for some uknown reason.

    Hmmmm.....when did Obama become such a deficit hawk ?

    Before or after he submitted a 3.4 Trillion dollar budget ?

    Can you explain this statement in with a little bit of detail.
    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.

    Oh, Good Lord, when did Obamacare go into effect? What is it about liberalism that creates this kind of support and loyalty in the face of economic disaster??

    The fact remains, Bush submitted a budget, it was rejected by Congress only to be signed by Obama in March 2009. Obama signed a stimulus plan in February, recycled TARP LOAN money that was repaid, created Afghanistan supplementals knowing quite well that you would blame Bush. He was right and you as always are wrong.

    You are touting a reduction in costs before Obamacare went into effect. How typical

    You can't take credit for a lower deficit and lower spending when you opposed that lower spending. Fortunately, Obama hasn't really tried. His supporters, on the other hand... I'd say take a cue from Paul Krugman. He believes current fiscal policy is a bad idea and he's stuck to that argument. When you're trying to give a Democratic President credit for doing the very things not only he, but most of his supporters, opposed, it doesn't really make him look as good as you think it might.

    They posted a graph that didn't count the stimulus in Obama's spending spree.
