Re: Spend, Spend, Spend, Spend!

You've got a VERY bad memory my friend. Why are Liberals always trying to rewrite history?

Clinton RAISED taxes in 1993.
Directly because of that, the economy got worse, and the Republican's took control of congress and the Senate in Nov. 1994.

Because the Republicans held spending to a very small rate of increase (as opposed to the large rate of increase under the Democrats, the budget eventually became balance because the economy grew. Even so, the Republicans back then cut taxes under Clinton's term.

That same scenario is playing itself out again.
Obama has done a Clinton redux of 93.
And the Republicans will take back the congress this Nov.

And if you remember, Clinton had to fight like crazy to have his balanced budget…lots of naysayers…simple and elegant idea…'business 101' for people who understand simple budgeting….but it was 'Bush-wacked' at the first possible chance after taking office

{NO, it was the Republicans from 1995 - 2001 that balanced the budget}

The Dem's had a balanced budget at the end of the Clinton Administration! {BS!} Look what GW did to it in just 4 months. Had Gore been given the presidency instead of Bush, we'd STILL have a balanced budget, no collapsed economy, and no Iraq war to pay for.

Obama and the Dems have already spent 3 times faster than Bush's last year.

Instead of criticizing the Repubs, they should pass a BALANCED BUDGET!

Yesterday while we were distracted by tar balls, the saga of Al and Tipper and this Joran van der Sloot prepuce ... our federal debt surpassed $13 trillion. This is the first time in history that our country has sunk this much into the red. Say what you will about the spending of previous administrations, but there is no doubt that Barack Obama and the Democrats running the clown show in Congress are on a high-speed track to America's financial destruction.

Since the inept Community Organizer has taken the reins in Washington, our government has spent an average of $5 billion a day. That is almost three times as much as the daily average under George W. Bush. This means that so far under Obama's presidency, our national debt has risen $2.4 trillion.

Just yesterday I told you about PrezBo's harsh words for the GOP .. he criticized them for sitting on the sidelines and not offering any solutions. Perhaps Obama should direct some of that anger towards his fellow Democrats in Congress who have refused to vote on a budget this year. Other than defending our nation, is there a more primary function of government than setting a basic budget for operations? While Obama has managed to appoint a debt commission, what real action do you see the Democrats trying to take in tackling our debt crisis? The answer is that you don't. That's because this is a crisis that isn't going to win them votes. It isn't going to win them re-election or union support or local memorials in their honor. It is going to be an issue that takes real guts - it is going to take politicians who are not there because they seek power, but because they want to get this country back on track. Where can you find such selfless people nowadays? Sure ain't the people currently running the show.
