    Reality check:
    So if anybody tells you that Americans work for China now, since they hold all our T-notes and can yank our fiscal chain, tell them that’s an exaggeration. The vast majority of US debt is owed to non-Chinese, after all. Maybe we should worry about the British instead – that queen of theirs looks like a tough customer.

    The article is a year old, but the point is still valid. Most US debt is owed to, uh . . ., us.

    We just cut a bunch of spending on that borrow and spend (from China) war.

    Yes there is. Restore tax rates to what they were under REAGAN, eliminate the earned interest exception, rebalance the tax rates to the Buffet Rule — as well as decreasing the size of the Pentagon, of course.

    GW left office with the Debt at $9.6 trillion.
    today, the 3 year OBAMA DEBT is at $15.2 trillion.
    I heard an economist say that 1/3 of the total US DEBT is Obama’s exclusively! That is counting from First Prez Washington’s term to today. And Obama is pushing for an additional $1.2 trillion for 2012, never mind his plans for the next 5 years spending!
    -
    the only “savings” in Obama’s plan is the pulling out of Iraq and Afghanistan (abandoning them to the tender mercies of the global jihadists) and cuts in the Pentagon’s budget, firing thousands of volunteer military servicemen and women.

    Even those “cuts” can’t begin to repay China for borrowed money to spend on Obama’s pet projects like the failed and failing “energy” grants & loans…a long list…

    The chit was writ by Reagan, Bush 41 and 43, period. The additional interest on the debt isn’t “Obama’s” it’s till coming from previous administrations. Amazing the figures the morons will come up with after listening to Rush.

    everything I posted above is factual. No spin in my post.
    maybe your Obama Koolade has your eyes spinning.

    And for some balance…http://blog.heritage.org/2011/05/13/liberal-think-tank-fails-statistics/
    What I truly believe if that we get sucked into the"blame the other side" politics and rational thought is mocked…although long, http://www.cbpp.org/cms/index.cfm?fa=view&id=3049 has a great line…Main Causes of Rising Expenditures Are Health Care Costs and Demographic Changes
    The main sources of rising federal expenditures are rising costs throughout the U.S. health care system and demographic changes, with health care costs playing the predominant role. Together, these two forces will cause Medicare, Social Security, and Medicaid to grow considerably faster than the economy. Collectively, these three programs now cost 10 percent of GDP; by 2050, they are projected to cost 19 percent of GDP….

    You would not realize any savings there-i don’t participate in those programs. Just because I’m not white doesn’t mean that you can assume I do you dork. And go back further…the problems started with President Johnson.
