    Technically more if you discount money.

    if you're going year by year, I doubt Obama's deficit will be 2 trillion every year, and Bush's average is over $300 billion.
    And people ignore much of it was Bush Era spending. Interesting how people refuse to admit this.

    Don't forget "every child left behind," in which 2 journalists were paid with tax payer money to promote it.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Kudos for the decision not to spend on the extragevence.

    But stating that OBVIOUS fact, I certainly always have a problem when the government spends MORE than it takes in. I am not sure how anyone who has read my posts with an open mind can take anything else away from it.

    But the notion that one can deal with the devastating effects of 9-11, Hurricane Katrina and the asinine criticisms on how to deal with it by the media, and two wars in the Middle East and NOT have a deficit requires willful ignorance, or perhaps hyper partisan denial?

    The ONLY reason I accepted the fact that we squandered the deficit was the FACT that I supported the war efforts and remember the devastating effects of the attacks on 9-11 on this economy and Government and those of a major natural disaster in the Gulf Coast while you conveniently ignore them for simplistic convenient partisan political purposes.

    What is amusing about your views, and others with similar views, is that you support the current administrations vast expansion of Government and deficit spending while still criticizing Bush's tiny little $200 billion deficit. It is OBVIOUS that spending is certainly not your concern, just HOW it is spent right?

    The notion that anyone can still be talking about Bush's $200 billion deficit in the face of almost $2 trillion defies common sense and logic.

    Carry on.
    I wonder how Canada would fair if they put out to the level that the US does.

Anyway, that is the cost of averting a second Great Depression and preventing Medicare/Medicaid from breaking the federal budget a couple decades down the road. Money had to be spent to fix it some time, so why not before we string out the losses over the next couple decades?
    How much deficit is $29,000,000,000,000 over 10 years?
