    As for what the Republicans did, during difficult times difficult decisions have to be made. The GOP made a tough decision. I support it.
    Tax cuts indirectly contributed hugely to the debt via lack of spending cuts. This alone on a balance sheet is the equivilent of a spending increase. What is worse though is that you brought in less and spent even more.. this is not rocket science.

    Re: Obama says GOP making life harder for the jobless

    So that is your logic, tax cuts that increased govt. revenue contributed to the debt because there were no spending cuts? Do you realize how stupid that argument is? Tax cuts increased govt. revenue, period, and that is proven by the U.S. Treasury website which is the checkbook of the U.S.

    Again, prove me wrong with verifiable non partisan sources like the U.S. Treasury or BEA.gov.

    Why is it that when asked to provide proof that the tax rate cuts reduced govt. revenue I get silence from those that continue to spout that BS? This is the ongoing argument from the left that promotes the statement that if you make false statements often enough soon they will become true. It is a lie and that lie is debunked by BEA.gov and the U.S. Treasury Dept. numbers. Both the Reagan and Bush Tax RATE cuts grew govt revenue by creating new taxpayers. Look at what the Obama tax cuts generated, nothing because they were rebate checks passed off as a tax cut.

    President Bush inherited a budget surplus when he took office. Then managed to turn that surplus into an enormous deficit after cutting taxes multiple times while implementing two wars and the opening billions of dollars worth of new spending programs and didnít pay for any of them. Obama took office in January 2009 the Congressional Budget Office was seeing a finances deficit of 1.2 trillion for the year. This decline from a record surplus to a record deficit with Bush resulted in $3 trillion increase in public debt, this was the largest increase to the American debt ever.

    Yes, the economy was down for 2009. What a ****ing shock.

    There was no "Clinton Surplus" taht was a shell game, nothing more.

    Teh Tax Revenues of the 82-88 period, 62-64, and 2002-2008 are all times of TAX CUTS with higher tax REVENUE.

    Indisputible facts.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    So I am told, now prove it? Stop buying the rhetoric and get the facts. The U.S. Treasury will show the actual results of Bill Clinton. Projected surpluses are just like the projection that you are going to be the President of the United States. There was no budget surplus, only a projected one and of course you forget like others 9/11 and the costs to the Treasury. You also don't seem to have a clue that SS funds are on budget but the debt off budget and it was SS funds that created a surplus for one year and one year only but those funds were offset by an IOU in the SS fund. Another brilliant liberal comment on your part.

    For someone apparently concerned about the Bush debt you conveniently ignore that Obama was in the Congress and helped create that debt. Now he is in the WH and put Bush deficits on steroids and not a word from you. That is what liberals do, blame someone else and never take responsibility. That is the prescription for failure.
