    Yes, if your actual concern is debt (and it certainly isn’t the GOP’s actual concern), then revenue increases would be on the table and shutting down the government and threatening the debt ceiling would be regarded as simply insane and unacceptable. Yet 144 Republican house members voted to breach the debt ceiling. Debt has never bothered the GOP compared to their utmost concern: never raise taxes on the rich. (Higher taxes on the poor are just fine, as evidenced by their ending the payroll tax holiday).

    So you admit to getting all of your news from Fox and Rush Limbaugh?

    I’ve been told repeatedly that the Tea Party was sent to Congress to stop the government and save taxpayer money. Well, mission half-accomplished, I guess….
    Will the party of personal responsibility be picking up this $24bil check they’ve run up?

    “$24 billion in 16 days. the gop really are bad on fiscal policy.”

    I’m afraid you have it all wrong. Republicans are for limiting government waste of money. They would never cost the taxpayers that kind of money for something with no benefit. It goes against their platform, and their very nature.

    The masochist said to the sadist, “Beat me, beat me.” The sadist said, “No.”

    No, you have it wrong. The federal deficit has been shrinking pretty steadily since W pushed it to a record high in 2009.

    I do, at that has to do with more taxes, a painfully slow recovery, and please look at your dates, Obama took office Jan 20 2009.

    @jack75287

    Yes, Obama took office in January of 2009 and, as shown on the table, the deficit has been shrinking ever since.
    .
    And as far as your contention that the deficit has been shrinking because of increased taxes, cite one tax increase that has gotten past the Tea Party caucus in the House.

    While Obama took office on Jan 20, the budget and deficit figures were passed by the outgoing Congress in 2008. Federal fiscal year is October 1 to September 30.

    They shutdown the government. It cost us $24 billion and the federal workers are going to get paid for not working.
    Thank you TEAbaggers!

    @ConserveGov

    If his first years were so bad, how did he win re-election so decisively?
