Ok, maybe you'll respond with the fact that deficits dont matter, provided they are used to grow the economy, and thus generate increased tax revenues.

Oooh wait, the economy isnt growing?

Why then exactly do you sit here and pretend to be outraged over a Republican administration, who's policies actually DID increase the economy at 1/5th the cost, but not a peep over a Democratic one, who's trillion dollar deficits result in ZERO?
When you do not put expenses on the books you can mask the smell coming from the books. The Pres. put all the stuff that the last Repub. admin. left behind back on the books.
We the people will need to pay back this mess.

What real choice do we have? Is King Solomon running? Give me a better choice and I'll take it.

Nonsense. This president has not passed a budget. The Democrats are literally scared to put budget #s down on paper and vote for it.

This president is trying to pass off his stimulus as George W Bush spending when you hear him talk, since technically it occurred on Bush's final fiscal year - fiscal year runs from October 1st to September 30th.

Obama bears enough responsibility for why his 4 years as president will be the worst 4 years ever of adding debt with no sign of improvement in fact signs of it getting worse and worse.

Hmmm, get your facts straightened. Presidents don't pass budgets, Congress does.

Get real. Remember those famous words, "Deficits don't matter?"




Depends if the majority of Republicans are Progressive like John McCain and Lindsey Graham, or Conservative like Ron Paul, Mike Lee and Rand Paul


Progressives.... NO

Conservatives......YES, YES, YES

The fact is this president is not a leader on anything to do with finances.

This president had total control of congress for 2 whole years and could not pass an annual budget. One of the president's proposed budgets was so ludicrous that he got ZERO votes in the Democratically controlled Senate.

We need a leader. Obama has given us broken promises and kicked the can down the road on fiscal issues.

Answer to OP: No I don't.

Republicans and Democrats are on the same page on every major issue, including ridiculous spending.

So why should we trust this new bunch of republican crooks?

Your choice is to not participate in a fraud. Sometimes the best option is to not do anything on purpose. You are not doing it out of laziness or anything like that.
