whysoserious;1059298153]You are forgetting about the bailouts and stimuluses that were recommended by most economists. I would guess that's were most of that increased spending came from, isn't it? Also, don't worry, I can do your job for you. The republicans did propose a budget:
The Washington Monthly
The republicans pushed forward a bill to do what? Cut spending by about a trillion over ten years? Wow, that sounds familiar... oh wait, it is the exact same amount that Obama put forth. How did the GOP receive Obama's plan?
It is insignificant when Obama posed it. But, 5 minutes later, what did Jeff Sessions think about the GOP proposal?
Now, if this was just some random republican it wouldn't be a big deal. You could say he's just an idiot and doesn't speak for the group, but unfortunately, this is not the case. He isn't just some republican and he does speak for the group. You see, Jeff Sessions is the top Republican on the Senate Budget Committee
Any questions? Now go ahead and throw out a straw man, change the subject, and deny everything I just wrote.
