realifedad said I just read today that with Bush's tax cuts and simultaneously starting two wars his administration added 7 trillion to the debt, so far during Obama's admin. there has been 1.7 trillion added, and a huge portion of that came because of the harm to the economy that the first 7 trillion did. but of course this is all Obama's fault !! Its his economy !!!
I suggest you get your news from the source, the U.S. Treasury Department:http://www.treasurydirect.gov/NP/BPDLogin?application=np
National Debt When Bush Took Office: $5.7 trillion
National Debt When Bush Left Office: $10.6 trillion
That's $5 trillion, not $7 trillion. And that's over 8 years.
National Debt When Obama Took Office: $10.6 trillion
National Debt Today: $14.3 trillion
That's almost $4 trillion, not $1.7 trillion. And that's in a little more than 2 years.
Meanwhile, as the US goes in a hole to make the very rich, very much richer, the poor and middle class are getting very much worse off.
How is this actually being done? How much money has the U.S. government given to the "very rich?" Specifics please.
WHERE ARE THOSE JOBS THOSE TAX BREAKS ARE SUPPOSED TO PRODUCE ?
Kick Obama out of the White House and put the Democrats in the minority in the House and Senate in 2012 and you'll see LOTS of jobs.
