The GOP answer is to create more debt, why pay today when you can get the next guy to pay. The flat tax system that the GOP is pushing is creating shortfalls where ever it is put in place. Even in NC which is showing growth.

Obama isn't a Republican, and neither is the 10 TRILLION DOLLARS in debt he added.

Seems as if Republicans are better investors


I believe that both Republican and Democratic economic principles may work depending on the circumstances.

LOL, and what has Obama done? What did the democrats do when they had the House and Senate? Created more debt than all other presidents combined.

Liberals don't even have a passing acquaintance with facts.
