    @CCNJ's say the sky is falling

    Unfortunately the Democrat party and the community organizer aren’t too well-versed in monetary growth. Their idea of capital creation is to take it from someone else by force. 0 actually believes that extending unemployment benefits will create jobs! That is the level of ignorance with which we are dealing. The leeches that voted him in won’t hold him accountable until their government checks start bouncing- an inevitability, by the way.

    Stop demanding that the federal government do everything for you in life, and we won’t have to pay for it.

    I hate school, and I want the government to stop wasting money running schools. Just let me run barefoot.

    So, we don’t have a problem with too much wealth inequality, but too little?

    This is something you honestly believe, or are you just expressing hatred for Obama?

    You were proven wrong yesterday LIAR!
    The debt clock website works just fine.
    www.usdebtclock.org.
    And the actual, factual debt website www.treasurydirect.gov worked yesterday, works today, worked last week, last month and more than likely will work tomorrow too.
    .
    But only the liars like you in the audience believe your continuing lie.

    The sequester is proof that the republicans don’t care about debt reduction. Before the republicans’ “slimdown” that cost this country a couple billion dollars and countless jobs the sequester was all Obama’s fault. After the shutdown the rhetoric started to shift, the sequester had to be the STARTING point for budget negotiations. So when it was politically advantageous the republicans blamed President Obama for something they overwhelmingly voted for and then were incompetent (more like disinterested) in stopping. When it played to their distorted marching orders the pain was all Obama’s fault. But then when the budget was being negotiated we had to keep the cuts, well except for the military, and then START there. So when it was no longer politically advantageous to blame the president the republicans embraced the sequester cuts. Confident that the people would not tolerate the military pensions taking the hit. God forbid any cuts be done elsewhere, like weapons and assets the military tells CONgress and the people they DON’T WANT, can’t use and don’t need.
    .
    Seems the spending by Ronnie raygun (increased debt by nearly triple) and baby bush (increased debt by nearly double and fully responsible for half of all of the nation’s debt due to legacy costs) was okay. Undeniably because it was a republican president. But when a Democrat takes the presidency the debt and default all of a sudden is of grave importance again.
    .
    The real truth is simply that the republicans don’t really care about the debt, the deficit or spending until they perceived some political advantage from feigning outrage. Disgusting, despicable and destructive.

    Deficits ARE down, but the “debt” will continue to rise, thanks to things like the THREE TRILLION and counting debt owed and unpaid for Iraq and Afghanistan wars. (that Obama actually started to count the cost of, which "W"s “budgets” ignored.


    Hmm if the 1872 Mining Act had been rescinded in like well, 1918, and all hard rock minerals made LEASED claims instead with a fair market return to the government, or if federal oil and gas leases actually took in closer to fair market, like states, such as Texas charge, there would be ZERO national debt today! (Even with increases in spending.)


    So what do “brilliant” Republicans want to do now, sell off the public lands and property, at well less than a penny per dollar of value, to their corporate “friends”. Yep, Republican policies are sooooooo, “brilliant”.

    We did see the Democrats (who also to blame here) with Republicans worked real fast to fix it so that they had not trouble flying. Otherwise the poor suffer and they sleep like babies.

    If any person says that the debt is their highest priority, ask if they are willing to raise taxes as part of a deal to lower the debt. When they say “no way,” what they’re saying is that the debt is not their highest priority.

    How many jobs were lost due to the sequester? Oh yeah, “Countless” because you can not count to zero (0)!
    Do I smell a LIAR amongst the LWNJ’s?

    "…that Obama actually started to count the cost of, which "W"s “budgets” ignored.

    First, Obama did not even have a budget for the first 5 years of his Presidency. Does that mean there was no deficit in those years?

    Second, “Special Appropriations” are included in yearly deficit/surplus numbers. Accountants don’t simply disregard them because they weren’t included in an original budget.

    Says the baby whose parents own their house free and clear, as well as both their cars, and are going to pay for his entire college education without “running up the debt” or getting second jobs.
