> Ronald Reagan’s Second Term – $1.036 trillion increase
> George H.W. Bush’s Term – $1.587 trillion increase
> Bill Clinton’s First Term – $1.122 trillion increase
> Bill Clinton’s Second Term – $418 billion increase
> George W. Bush’s First Term – $1.885 trillion increase
> George W. Bush’s Second Term – $3.014 trillion increase
> Barack Obama’s First “Year” – $1.573 trillion increase
To summarize, the National Debt increased by huge amounts under each of these presidents. The largest increase for a complete term occurred during George W. Bush’s second term. The largest increase during a single year occurred during Barack Obama’s first year.

Or, to put it another way, after one year, Obama is already in fourth place for increasing the national debt behind George W. Bush II, George W. Bush I, and George H.W. Bush. He’s already out-paced Bill Clinton’s entire eight years in office, and is only a few hundred billion dollars away from passing Reagan’s two terms.

Anyone want to guess where this is headed ?

also, as you can see that every president has increased the debt of every other president. anyone can also see that george bush jr was a disaster for this country and spent like a liberal, which is why the liberal congress never opposed him.
You get no arguments from me that we are in bad shape. What is coming if we aren't careful is monetization of our national debt and that will bring on hyperinflation. And this will happen with the worlds reserve currency. In Obama's defense Not that I like or favor him. He inherited a position that FDR had with regards to the economy. Well we are in much worse shape than we were in 1929~1939. Then we were to worlds biggest exporter of oil. Now we are the biggest importer of oil. Go figure. Take a look at the total debt graph. We are in danger of having a global banking crises to make the melt down in 2008 look small in comparison.

No wonder the trial lawyers supported this bill. It's job security for them for years and years to come.

One thing for sure, most of the staffers are rude and most likely avail themselves of a GED vs a high school diploma.

This bill can pass with votes on Sunday but it still can be stopped even if Obama buys a million votes.

This bill is totally unconstitutional and will spark a huge amount of lawsuits.

Isn't it funny that the Obamabots want and are for trashing of our US constitution after the whiners complain for 8 years about it?

Go ahead and allow this to pass, it still can be stopped and if not there will be hell to pay come November.

I will trade this single bill to end liberalism in America for good.



This might just be the ticket to get rid of the dems in congress and make Hitler Jr a total lame duck from January until he leaves office or resigns.

Well, it depends on the perspective. You might believe they're racist "teabaggers" (although the term is not really appropriate since Andersen Cooper is likely not calling), but others might believe they're not interested in paying for something they already have.
