Countering conservative lies – Obama’s and Bush’s effects on the deficit in one graph

“What’s also important, but not evident, on this chart is that Obama’s major expenses were temporary — the stimulus is over now — while Bush’s were, effectively, recurring. The Bush tax cuts didn’t just lower revenue for 10 years. It’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.”

Another fine example of dishonest republicans

This comes from repeat offender, Chairman Michaele Steele, who attached A Census to his push-polling questionaire.

And look at how the republicans try to dodge all responsibility for the deficit (they are responsible for the majority).

Politico (Dick Cheney’s internet mouthpiece) doesn’t discuss the details.

But take a look at one of my previous posts, which describes things in more detail.

More deception from the Right.
Business as usual.
