    According to this analogy, Congress raises debt and deficit.
    - BTW, the deficit has shrunk under President Obama.

    I understand that newspapers are losing readers, but maybe Henry should read one every couple of weeks so he knows more than what Rush and Hannity tell him.

    The way government reduces deficit is very easy for them to do, ReFlex. They go into their spreadsheet and see what the deficit is going to be, then, they go to the cell that shows how much they were going to borrow and increase that number and “PRESTO!”. The deficit is reduced. The consequence of this ledgerdermain, (misspelling intentional) of course, is that debt increases.

    Scott he’s not lying he really believes. It is the same thing with unemployment. They drop the number of people looking for work every month and they say they have over 40 months of job growth.

    Funny how "conservatives’ didn’t raise a fuss when a Republican controlled Congress raised the debt ceiling 6 times during the Bush Administration. They don’t care about the debt, just which party is creating it.

    Afghanistan and Iraq were not on the books until Obama took office.

    Agreed. Scott and many others who like W Bush and dislike Obama forget that W’s $800 billion TARP was done AFTER Sep 30, 2008 and therefore was included in fiscal year that ended during Obama’s first term. The debt increase is quite different when you subtract $800 billion from Obama and add it to W Bush.

    That would be Boehner going out the door to be with “the boys”, like McConnell, Cantor, McCain, and from both parities demanding we buy more weapons for “defense” even the Pentagon and the services DO NOT WANT OR NEED! ONE “system”, the failed F-35 is $1.3 TRILLION over 10 years, just ONE contract that represents the entire “savings” proposed by Obama, and TWICE the “savings” Boehner proposed.

    @Ms. Ima

    “Just as the expanding universe is shrinking? Tell me how out of control spending is ‘shrinking deficit’.”
    -
    - Simple: the “out of control spending” is a myth.
    - Get more tax revenue than you spend, you get a surplus; you know, arithmetic!

    To repeat, the deficit has gone down (and still is) under President Obama:

    Goin' Down
