What does the man who'll always be known as 'The Food Stamp President' know about economics?

Less than AOC I'd reckon.
Get back to me when the deficit comes in under 500 million which occurred twice during Obama administration.

Trump didn't add the 2T, both the left and right in Congress came up with the biggest budget in history and Trump signed it. EVERY liberal in here would have bashed him for not signing it. Tails libs win heads Trump loses. He can't win no matter what he does.






Odd that such an old thread is resurrected.

I know Obama wants to tax the so-called rich more in the name of justice, but that total comes to only ~$84 billion a year. So where does Obama plan on getting the other $1.2 trillion dollars a year from? I hear him yapping about evil people, excuses and class warfare. What I haven't heard is what his plan is to actually balance the budget. Can someone explains to me in detail how he plans on balancing the budget? Please provide the math that adds up to a balanced budget and then how much excess is left over to pay down the debt that is accumulating at historic levels. Don't just throw out talking points. I want to understand his math.
6 1/2 years later, the answer is crystal clear. Obama didn't have a plan to balance the budget or pay down the debt. He lied.

No one cares what Obama thinks, especially about saving money and paying down debt. That's like asking the bum on the corner for financial advice. Wait, no, I'm wrong. Asking Obama would be like asking Bernie Madoff. Obama knows how to steal money.

Our Dear Leader advocated for and obtained massive increases in government spending while massively cutting government revenue. Surprise, Surprise the deficits are on a trajectory to get much larger.

And yet during his administration the annual deficits declined quite dramatically.
