    Lets keep this to President Bush. Dont hide behind some attack on President Obama to justify why President Bush spent trillions of our money.
    It doesn't appear that you know what Bush did, billions given? You mean tax credits? What money did Bush give to business? If you get to keep more of what you earn is the govt. really giving you anything?

    Spending on the Iraq War cost about 100 billion a year out of the 2.6-3.6 billion dollar Bush budgets over 8 years. How did that spending hurt you or your family?

    You simply don't have a clue.

    Direct costs

    As of February 2010, around $704 billion has been spent based on estimates of current expenditure rates[1], which range from the Congressional Research Service (CRS) estimate of $2 billion per week to $12 billion a month, an estimate by economist Joseph Stiglitz.[2]

    Corn Subsidies** in the United States totaled $73.8 billion from 1995-2009.

    How much is that a year? How much is the budget of the United States a year? Do subsidies hurt you and your family?

    I do mind. If you want it then YOU pay for it. If its money out of my pocket because taxes go up then yes, my family has less.

    Don't worry ender1, those are his typical responses when you've proven him wrong. Usually its even less intellectual such as "what's your point?" I've gotten that one a lot. He doesn't sleep either, he's on here 24/7 ready to unapologetically and single-mindedly argue for every single GOP issue and then some. I'm not even sure he's human, I think he's some sort of GOP computer program put on here to blurt out talking points for their issues.
