    We do NOT have a spending problem. We have a revenue problem. When Mr. Bush slashed taxes, we were assured that this would rev up the economy to such an extent that the enhanced economic activity would supply new tax revenues to replace those lost by the cut. Three years later and before the Great Recession, this had not happened. Rather, we went from surpluses under President Clinton to deficits under Mr. Bush. And then the great Wall Street debacle completely tanked the economy. Without the revenue stream to properly run government, it is difficult to make things better for anyone but those who already have far more than they need or could ever spend.

    Obama does not decide on spending and revenues (taxes). That is the job of Congress. If Congress does not raise the tax or cut the spending it can’t happen. Why are folks blaming Obama. If Obama, via an executive order, decides not to spend the money, these same folks call him a dictator. – Go Figure.

    Cut Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid for all except the most poor. That will get everything in the right direction.

    Spending has been over Revenues since the 1980’s. We need to stop blaming and start fixing, but you cant get elected unless you buy the votes.

    You mean that $3 per person in the USA. My guess is not much more than the epidemic of lose change falling out of pockets

    As was pointed out at the beginning of his reign, the Obamanation would bring financial ruin, he has proven he is a habitual liar and downright criminal with multiple illegal acts and trampling of the constitution, and his Obamanationcare is an undeniable disaster. Yet there are those who stubbornly cling to supporting this incompetent fool no matter what kind of cataclysm he brings on.

    “……We do NOT have a spending problem. We have a revenue problem. etc. etc……”
    .
    You have that exactly right. Time to man up, raise revenue, pay the bills, and start acting fiscally responsible.

    Too bad it’s actually Congress that makes the budget, not the president.

    Iraq invasion= $3 Trillion. F-35, $1.3 TRILLION in obligations. Gee, where does Obama come in as causing that cost, caused by Congress, Republican administrations and credit spenders since Reagan first cut taxes…
