“Whatâ€™s also important, but not evident, on this chart is that Obamaâ€™s major expenses were temporary â€” the stimulus is over now â€” while Bushâ€™s were, effectively, recurring. The Bush tax cuts didnâ€™t just lower revenue for 10 years. Itâ€™s clear now that they lowered it indefinitely, which means this chart is understating their true cost. Similarly, the Medicare drug benefit is costing money on perpetuity, not just for two or three years. And Boehner, Ryan and others voted for these laws and, in some cases, helped to craft and pass them.”
How stupid are conservatives? They think the deficit has grown under Obama. Can you believe that? 1.2 trillion before Obama to half that amount this year means the deficit is growing to mentally ill conservatives. Conservatives have exclusive ownership of the idiot gene.
