    Yes, I made the point, Reagan created a peace dividend giving Clinton the opportunity to cut spending, he increased social spending and didn't cut spending at all. That destroys your belief that Reagan created policies that authorized other Presidents to increase the debt. You obviously don't understand what a peace dividend was or what the return on investment was from the Reagan economy. Reagan set the stage for reducing spending, not increasing it.

    What the hell are SE taxes?
    Self-employment taxes. You don't even know what those are?

    T-Bills are issued but when they come due where does the money come from to convert them to cash or do you think your grocery store will take T-bills?
    How many times have I referred to the interest payments on the debt....maybe 6, 8? I'm beginning to wonder about your cognitive ability.

    Please tell me why SS and Medicare are being funded by general revenue?
    For the nth time, because your party refuses to adequately fund both programs in the hope that that will force their destruction in the future.

    You don't seem to have any concept of how the budget works, what taxes you pay, and what those taxes are for. SS and Medicare were pay as you go programs funded by FICA taxes ONLY.
    This from someone who didn't know what SE taxes are and didn't understand how the debt could go up even in the face of budget surpluses.


    Stop it, stop making a fool of yourself and mature by admitting you are wrong and have no idea what you are talking about or any clue about the budget, the deficit, and the debt.
    You'd be well served following your own advice. You've bungled, fumbled and stumbled on every aspect of this discussion so many times I'm surprised you aren't in intensive care for the self-inflicted wounds.

    You obviously have no idea how foolish you sound but I will continue to beat your ass with actual data and facts. You ought to stop when you are way behind.
    How you do make me laugh.

    Sure did and I see you managed to let yourself ignore that, too.

    Oh, Reagan absolutely did it. Where do you think his $1.9T addition to the debt came from? You have no connection at all with reality.

    So you are concerned about the 1.7 trillion Reagan added to the debt but not the 7.6 trillion Obama added. I know what we got for the Reagan debt but you cannot explain what we got from the Obama debt, you can tell what you feel but not support that by actual data

    That is just pure confabulation. It's pathological.

    No, sorry, BEA.gov and the Treasury Department disagree with you and the link I gave you supports my claim but like far too many you have been indoctrinated to buy rhetoric and ignore results.

    Really? So point out the Soviet Union today and the Cold war? I totally understand Treasury is wrong with regard to the Debt and Gorbachev is wrong regarding Reagan winning the cold war. You truly are a legend in your own mind with no self respect as you don't mind looking and sounding foolish

    digitusmedius;1064796872]Only if a certain party continues to unfund those future liabilities.
    Who are those certain parties?

    Self-employment taxes. You don't even know what those are?
    Thank you and yes I do. Do you understand what those taxes fund and where that money goes? Think it belongs on budget?

    How many times have I referred to the interest payments on the debt....maybe 6, 8? I'm beginning to wonder about your cognitive ability.
    Doesn't matter, does it, that is part of the budget and a responsibility of the Congress. What is the interest payments on the 7.6 trillion Obama has added vs. the 1.7 trillion of Reagan?

    For the nth time, because your party refuses to adequately fund both programs in the hope that that will force their destruction in the future.
    As they should, since you congratulation others on attacking the Reagan debt you trumpet any social program that increases the debt. That is part of the reason you have no credibility. Social programs are state and local responsibilities not the Federal Taxpayers responsibility


    This from someone who didn't know what SE taxes are and didn't understand how the debt could go up even in the face of budget surpluses.
    Can you show me which year Clinton spent less than the previous year and which budget items contributed to those spending cuts? Do you know what a peace dividend is?


    You'd be well served following your own advice. You've bungled, fumbled and stumbled on every aspect of this discussion so many times I'm surprised you aren't in intensive care for the self-inflicted wounds.
    Your opinion noted but from what I see and the data supports you are describing you and your posts
