    It really is too bad that there are so many still drinking the Kool-Aid and having a distorted position on the economic foundation upon which this country was built.

    Too many are out of touch with reality looking for utopia and believing that by throwing more money at the problem you can solve the problem. When you allow the people and private industry to keep more of their money that indeed does happen.

    For someone who complains about the Regan Debt you sure are ignoring the Obama debt. He contributed to the 1.47 trillion 2009 debt and in the first two months of fiscal year 2010 he has added almost 300 billion more. That is putting Reagan, GHW Bush, and GW Bush spending on steroids yet you don't have buyer's remorse?

    I know you are going to really enjoy following the attached

    U.S. National Debt Clock : Real Time
    And back to the reversion of personal attacks telling people theyre drinking the koolaid that they believe in some utopian world. Noone has stated they believe in a utopia. This talking point of youris getting overplayed time to change the record.
    You accuse others of not doing research from non partisan sources and yet your idea of research is merely stating the the acronyms bls and bea instead of showing the actual data from them.

    You love bringing up the 1.47 trillion which your own article from abc you posted stated that most of it came from the bush administration

    Well, looks like we are making some progress as it used to be Bush created the deficit and now you are at least acknowledging that most of it came from Bush meaning then that some of it came from Obama.

    Now let's continue on, Obama submits fiscal year 2010 budget and the first two months of fiscal year 2010 the deficit was almost 300 billion dollars. Now how do you blame Bush for that? Let's take the first two months of fiscal year 2010 and project it out to the end of the fiscal year. How much with Obama add to the deficit?

    Yes, I am 56.
    The first four years of Reagan were about as bad as Carter's. I worked for a wholesale finance company at the time and spent most my time repossesing and watching small businesses go belly up. Reagans second term was phenomenal. During that time I worked in the housing industry and the first housing boom led to a great economy. After Reagan left office, the economy tanked and in the first time in my life I was laid off, along with millions of other Americans. You see Reagan's boom was over and Bush Sr paid the price. We went into recession and unemployement exploded.
    The economy was so bad that an idiot like Clinton beat Bush Sr. even after Bush's wonderful job with Desert Storm. That's the way it was. There was a recession under GHWB term.

    since you first posted the abc article that you claimed you didnt post then admitted to posting then claimed part of it was wrong, I have stated that Bush was responsible for most of it. Id say if most of the deficit that you cited as 1.47 came from Bush then yes he did create that deficit. The year just started we'll just have to wait and see how it plays out.

    Yes, the first half of the Reagan term was not very pretty as I am sure then you remember the misery index. Reagan cut taxe rates over three years and that is what spirred the economic growth because people spending more of their own money always does that. I never prospered more than I did during the Reagan term. Clinton tried to reverse that and gave us the GOP Congress.

    Now don't get me wrong, I prefer getting rid of all Republicans and Democrats and completely cleaning house, but the misinformation here is absolutely astounding. Clinton did inherit a rebounding economy and tried to destroy it

    Yeah, his actions did indeed have long lasting effects. None of them good.

    Huge surplus? Why doesn't the U.S. Treasury Website show that huge surplus? Then how would you have paid for 9/11? Economics doesn't seem to be a strong suit for you.

    Actually Reagan raised taxes on SS and raised other taxes too. He increased government spending which also bolstered the economy. I admit that Reagans second term was great but it did not last. Bush Sr paid the price of Reagans spending spree.

    Do you deny that Bush Sr lost because the economy sucked? Clinton inherited a stagnant economy in recession. The only thing that made Clinton's rconomy a success was the technology bubble.
    There is no misinformation. Everything I said is true and documented


    "It’s conservative lore that Reagan the icon cut taxes, while George H.W. Bush the renegade raised them. As Stockman recalls, "No one was authorized to talk about tax increases on Ronald Reagan’s watch, no matter what kind of tax, no matter how justified it was." Yet raising taxes is exactly what Reagan did. He did not always instigate those hikes or agree to them willingly–but he signed off on them. One year after his massive tax cut, Reagan agreed to a tax increase to reduce the deficit that restored fully one-third of the previous year’s reduction. (In a bizarre bit of self-deception, Reagan, who never came to terms with this episode of ideological apostasy, persuaded himself that the three-year, $100 billion tax hike–the largest since World War II–was actually "tax reform" that closed loopholes in his earlier cut and therefore didn’t count as raising taxes.)

    Faced with looming deficits, Reagan raised taxes again in 1983 with a gasoline tax and once more in 1984, this time by $50 billion over three years, mainly through closing tax loopholes for business. Despite the fact that such increases were anathema to conservatives–and probably cost Reagan’s successor, George H.W. Bush, reelection–Reagan raised taxes a grand total of four times just between 1982-84."

    If you think I stated something that is not factual, please do point it out. But, I would ask you to use facts to support your claim, not empty rhetoric as some here have a habit of doing. Thank you.
