    Yes, we were 10.6 trillion in debt on a 14.7 trillion dollar economy. Today we are 18.2 trillion in debt on a 17.4 trillion dollar economy. I suggest researching the Treasury site to find out what it was spent on starting with the failed Obama stimulus and the failure to get shovels delivered for those shovel ready jobs Obama was talking about? Obama budget proposals today exceed 3.9 trillion dollars.

    What truly is amazing is how you and others focus on leftwing rhetoric and pass it off as being true. Civics isn't a strength of yours and I defy you to tell me how taking the GDP from 10.2 trillion in December 2000 and leaving it at 14.7 trillion in December 2008 is economic devastation? You buy what you are told making Gruber right on.

    You and your liberal cohorts point to two months of 700,000 job losses as the normal during the Bush term but ignore the 1.2 million monthly Discouraged workers in 2010 long after the stimulus was implemented and the shovels were to arrive. Keep buying the rhetoric and keep looking foolish

So I applaud the GOP for taking on Obamacare considering the financial burden it places on Americans.
    You're just in denial of what is on the record about republican's obstructionism. Then you come on with accusations with no evidence, just opinion. Unless you're referring to executive orders, which all presidents have used in the past.
    Couple of links of real evidence of Republican obstruction. The first, a republican senator stating your parties goal, making Obama a one term president. The second link, the Republican leadership on the taxpayers payroll, meeting with private citizens to plot Obama's downfall. What bothers me is that the wimpy Democrat leadership didn't shout out these almost treasonous Republican actions from the rooftops for all the world to see. Republicans would have, if Democrats did something similar, that's for sure.

    Mitch McConnell vowed to make Obama a "one-term president," now shocked that Obama portrays him as villain | The New Republic

    Look at the state of the economy when Bush left office. It certainly wasn't all his (or anyone's) fault, but it was a smoldering crater.

    Nobody is claiming that 700K monthly job losses were normal during Bush's term. You're lying.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    Did you read the article, the date was November 4, 2010, not right after the election but after Obama rammed through a stimulus that failed and when that failed rather than focusing on the economy he went after Healthcare. Keep trying to re-write history

    LOL, no, I am not lying, Ask Disney?

    The state of the economy when Bush left office has Democrat footprints all over it as they were in charge of the entire Congress, purse strings and legislative agenda since January 2007. I gave you the GDP when Bush left office and I have yet to hear how the Bush economy hurt you and your family? It didn't hurt me at all nor did it hurt most Americans since most Americans don't own homes

    My question is what did Republicans do with all those trillions? You do know that Obama is considered a miser when it comes to spending? Are you sure he spent it, or that it was just recurring expenses. No Republicans so far seem to mind their leadership's attempt to make Obama a failure even if America failed in this effort.
