    And your Messiah (or maybe, your Massa') wiull run up more debt in less than three years than GWB did in 8.

    But, as your Messiah, you excuse Him.

    Jesus Christ is running up debt? News to me..unlike Repubs I don't count a Politician as a Messiah, another weak tactic from the far right who assumed that since they worship Reagan that the Dems must worship their people as well. I worship Jesus Christ...sorry..Reagan died but Jesus lives..

    Stop lying to yourself -- your continued defense of The Obama speaks plainly enough.

    For every $1 of debt run up by GWB, The Obama is running up $2.75.

    When you learn something about economics and history, come back. The recession was caused by speculative debt, Florida real estate bubble, and multiple droughts. The depression was caused by a most serious backward monetary policy in which the Fed decreased the money supply coupled with the fact that monetary velocity (spending) declined substantially.

    "Cut spending" is a two-cent answer. I'm asking what spending you would cut and how, given political and economic realities (as opposed to how things would be in Ronpaultopia). And don't say "all of it." That's just stupid.

    Why are tax revenues down? Why have specific expenditures (unemployment) increased?

    Give it time, i believe it will come to you....

    Taxes are not too high. At 35% they are at near record lows. Even if they go back to Clinton era rates of 39.6% they will still be lower then most of our past..Taxes are a weak excuse for failures to blame something or someone other then themselves for not being a success...

    "All if it" is a perfectly legitimate answer.
    But, I will be more specific:
    First, eliminate the spending that provides people the means to exercise their rights. If anything is needed after that, then cut anything that does not go directly towards protecting the rights of the people.
