"A REMINDER WHERE WE WERE IN 2001(required for Republicans who woke up in 2009)!
Or Republicans creating poverty, outsourcing 30 million jobs, and, 80% of private industry..
AP) President Bush said Saturday that the most important number in the budget he sends to Congress next week is the $5.6 trillion surplus it projects over the next 10 years.
That huge projected surplus provides the underpinning of all the administration's tax-cut and spending plans, Mr. Bush said in his recorded weekly radio address.
"A surplus in tax revenue, after all, means that taxpayers have been overcharged," the president said. "And usually when you've been overcharged, you expect to get something back." The surplus figure "counts more than any other" in the budget, he said.
Democrats cautioned that "surpluses projected over so long a period can turn into elusive fool's gold. And they continued to insist that as it stands the Bush tax-cut plan unfairly favors the wealthy over those of more modest means."
Yes, we were on schedule to be debt free by 2011, paying off the Reagan debt! Instead Republicans used up the $5.6 trillion surplus, they acknowledged(and now try to deny), and turned that into $6 trillion in new debt (an $11.6 trillion swing) and, then on top of that handed Obama $1.7 trillion deficit and $12 trillion in new projected debt (instead of $8 trillion in surplus) over the next decade, a $31.5 trillion debt increase) along with losing 822K jobs per month; 60,000 closed factories; no private sector jobs created in a decade; ½ of high tech jobs outsourced, and, 15% of the economy GONE.
A minus one million private sector jobs created under Bush when the norm would be 23 million, plus, a 300% increases in energy, food and health insurance.
Since 1980, in net Republicans have created NO private sector Jobs, only wage declines.
Trickle down, supply side, deregulation is the same failure as in 1890s and account for 96% of our DEBT.
Obama has achieved: from losing 822K jobs per month to gaining 321K jobs per month.
Stock market up 11,000 points, more than under all Republicans combined.
US auto industry saved, 1/2 of what little private industry we had left. Republicans said it could not be saved in a decade, took 2 years.
Corporate profit rates twice as high as under Reagan, (highest ever), but per Republicans we need lower wages which are the lowest ever as a percent of GDP or Corp revenue, and, in a recession 5 times deeper than under Reagan.http://www.forbes.com/sites/adamhartung/2014/09/05/obama-outperforms-reagan-on-jobs-growth-and-investing/
Under Obama Bush deficit reduced by 63%.
Every Republican after IKE has increased deficits as a percent pf GDP - Every DEM starting with Truman has decreased them.http://www.cbsnews.com/2100-201_162-274334.html/
