Even today voters have voted in a Republican president and a Republican Senate, and yet Democrats have formed the resistance, while only controlling 1/3 of the government. I'll give you Republican obstruction from 2009-2014 but ever since January 2015, it has been constant Democratic obstruction, which has lasted five years now.
    So you are ignoring that the Republican controlled Senate has ignored hundreds of Bills sent to them by the House. Noted ..

    Well he's way more partisan than Lou Dobbs. Maybe not Kudlow
    But on a scale of partisan between 1 and 10 , Krugman is 9.7.

    thus a non -reliable source for anything.

    Actually, generally far more accurate economic analysis than those on the right, who have been consistently proven wrong and refuse to admit it. Or just lie. Or flip and flop depending on which way the wing's blowing.

    Paul Ryan, 2011: "the debt poses an existential threat to all we hold dear".
    Mike Pence, 2020: deficits are fine if they promote growth.

    In speech, Mulvaney says Republicans are hypocritical on deficits

    When Obama in the White House: The job numbers are fake! The Fed is holding interest rates too low, inflation is nigh!!!
    When Trump is in the White House: The job numbers are great! The Fed is holding rates too high!!!
    Annoy Russia. Vote Democrat.

    And you buy rhetoric instead of actual results, the deficit today is growing entirely from debt service and entitlement spending. why is it people like you never address spending and which of the candidates running for the Democratic Nomination are going to focus on the deficit and debt?

    There is quite a difference between the Obama debt and Trump debt as I have explained many times and you ignored. When the gov't spends over 40% of GDP that impacts the deficit especially when that spending didn't create the jobs promised by Obama with his "shovel ready jobs stimulus" bill signed in February 2009.

    You think 6 million new taxpayers created in 9 years generates enough revenue to justify the massive gov't spending Obama generated?
