    Re: Obama Unveils 3.83T Budget with Massive Deficits

    It all just takes me back to wondering...exactly what are these new Democrats, and the economists who support them, thinkng?!?! What drives them? Do Obama and the rest simply want to destroy America in order to make it over into something entirely different? Are they so inexperieced they are prone to foolish decisions? What could it be?!!?

    It is mind-boggling that the very same people who a year ago decried huge deficits and debt now have no problem actually growing them.

    Well of course the Dems decried the Huge deficits of Bush and his GOP congress. The money wasn't being spent on all of the stuff the Dems wanted.

    It's the same reason the republicans are sqwauking like a bunch of old hens now. They're no longer in charge and they can't piss our money away on their pork.

    They're thinking they can spend their way out of debt. Which is foolish. But it's no more foolish than the republican mantra of "cutting taxes to get out of debt".

    Both are wrong-headed.

    There are only two ways to get out of debt. Cut spending and or increase revenue (taxes).

    Democrats are hoping the economy will rebound asap, they'll get increased revenues (taxes) and that'll help offset the enormous spending they're doing now. They're rolling the dice. But they're gambling with our money to do it.

    But it's not true. Congress takes our money, Congress spends our money. Presidents can only agree or disagree.

    I say blame all of them. Congress takes our money, Congress spends our money, and the President approves the taking and the spending. How do any of them escape blame?

    Surprise! Let me guess, you never watched a Democrat before, have you? An amazing species, the only member of the fungus kingdom that can talk out of both sides of it's mouth and believe everything it says, all the time.
