House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) said on Tuesday that it may take as many as 20 years to balance the federal budget after years of deficit spending in Washington.

“I don’t think you can get there in ten years. I think it’s going to take a longer time [because] we’ve dug such a deep hole. We turned a $5.6 trillion [projected] surplus into $5 trillion in additional debt.”

Obama Has 'Failed to Lead' on Spending Cuts, Democratic Senator Says

Obozo knows nothing about being a leader...and when he does try to lead, he leads his followers into our nation's destruction, which is exactly the scumbag's intent - destroy America.

I like how those responsible for the looting of the taxpayer and the running up of the deficit now comment like they had no part in it.

You seriously didnt say that with a straight face did you? Democrats have turned $200B deficits into $2T deficits since taking over Congress.. and you want to blame the GOP?

I cant believe people actually believe what you say is true..
