To think that we are spending a whopping $1 Trillion more than we're bringing in is almost mind-numbing. How on earth can our government even contemplate Cap and Trade and even health care reform, both huge cost centers, in light of the current financial situation? Increased taxes and spending when people are already scraping the bottom of the barrel is beyond comprehension.

I would love to hear a logical argument from the left on how increased spending and increased taxes are even contemplatable in this environment. Any takers?

If you spent a dollar a second, it would take 31,688 years to spend a trillion dollars.

Finally, an achievement Obama can take credit for.
I'm sure all the usual suspect media outlets will be singing his praises

I do not use the word spending anymore. It is wasting.
