    Every congressman say they want to end deficit spending, but that doesn’t apply to the pork barrel spending for their district.

    And guess who are the worst? Here’s a hint, their party does NOT start with a “D.”
    .
    And before the reDUMBllicans jump on board and blame President Obama for the 5.5 trillion increase since his inauguration , no less than 3 trillion of that is directly caused by President Bush’s two wars, tax cuts, policies and legacy costs. So in reality less than 3 trillion of that deficit is due to President Obama’s policies and actions.

    About those 15 new ships every year, and other “military industrial complex” budget increases Mitt promises? “fiscal conservative” takes on whole new meaning.

    Hey, cut out PBS and Planned Parenthood, and the budget is balanced. Now we really can add to our military might.

    @TheTrustedMechanic

    UNTRUSTED MECHANIC: Annual Deficits and/or Surpluses include both “On-Budget” and “Off-Budget” Expenditures. Accountants don’t simply disregard money that is spent because it wasn’t “On-Budget”. If that were true, we wouldn’t have Trillion Dollat Plus Deficits the past 3 years, because there hasn’t BEEN a budget passed.

    Here’s the Government website to prove it:

    Office of Management and Budget: SUMMARY OF RECEIPTS, OUTLAYS, AND SURPLUSES OR DEFICITS: 1789–2017 see pages 22-24

    I don’t know how many times I’ve explained this to you, but you just go right on lying aboutr it.

    Some hefty URL’s but all you have to do is put “coburn wastebook” into your search engine and you get a bunch of hits.

    @DrCanuck

    Yes, I am.

    Obama did a lot of talking as well. Didn’t see a lot of follow thru with him either. But we did wee another 6 trillion dollars of debt.

    Oh maybe we should all just bow to the queen and become south Canada
