Speaking of zombie hordes how do you explain the Republicans voting for Donald Trump? Also how do you feel about the RNC and it's supporters, circumventing the Democratic process to deny the will of these people. Isn't this the very reason why the GOP is feeling the wrath of it's voting base. Onto the deficit and Reagan. Federal spending rose by 40 percent under Reagan’s first four budgets and debt increased by nearly 91 percent by the end of fiscal year 1985 alone.Reagan Added $1.86 trillion, a186% increase in the $998 billion debt level at the end of Carter's last budget, FY 1981. Each president inherits the previous debt PLUS INTEREST payed on that debt. Obama also inherited a budget deficit of over 1 trillion dollars, decreased tax receipts because of the recession and Bush tax cuts, TWO costly wars and an economy in drastic need of monetary stimulus. Combine all of this with a worthless, contentious congress that did nothing to help our economy the past 7 years and you can see why our GDP has been stuck in neutral. You say, "Obama/Hillary would destroy our Constitution." I say Trump will destroy our Country period! Hillary is the most experienced and capable candidate to take control of this country. Sad but true!
As usual WRONG again norris the name calling, close minded whatever you are. When Reagan took office the debt was $1 trillion. When he left it was $2.86 trillion. So $1.86 trillion for him. Then Bush-I added $1.55 trillion. Total so far: $3.4 trillion. Then Clinton took over.
Now the national debt is like a mortgage, and so the bigger it is, the more interest must be paid on it. Without the extra Reagan-Bush $3.4 trillion, there would have been a few hundred billion less in interest on the debt every year under Clinton. That interest adds another $2.3 trillion to the Reagan-Bush debt. Then Bush II increased it by $6.1 trillion to $11.8 trillion. And interest on that has been increasing the debt under Obama. The total Reagan-Bushes debt is now $14 trillion + INTEREST which has been generating every day since Obama took office back in 2009. Is math difficult for you?
Hey gumby what about Christie last night, NJ is not too happy with their Gov.
Washington (CNN)They're calling Chris Christie "an embarrassment."
An "utter disgrace."
And they're calling for the New Jersey governor -- Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's most high-profile supporter -- to step down.
As Trump swept through Super Tuesday primaries, taking seven states and boasting that he will unify a Republican Party upended by his candidacy, Christie was reaping ridicule for his decision to support the real estate developer-turned-political force.
Even before his positioning behind Trump during his victory speech spawned the hashtag #FreeChrisChristie, his endorsement drew a slew of irate hometown newspaper editorials that ran Tuesday.
"We're fed up with his opportunism, we're fed up with his hypocrisy," wrote six Gannett-owned newspapers, including the Asbury Park Press, the Cherry Hill Courier-Post and the Morristown Daily Record, in a joint editorial asking for Christie to quit or be recalled.
"We're disgusted with his endorsement of Donald Trump after he spent months on the campaign trail trashing him, calling him unqualified by temperament and experience to be president," they wrote.
More than 14 trillion of the debt is the responsibility of the Republicans dating back to Reagan. Is our economy better now than January 2009? The Republicans are doing everything in their power to keep the US economy down for the sole purpose of getting their guy into the White house. Now they are stuck and are scrambling because the American people refuse to accept their guy Rubio, too funny.
That means she has NOT been found guilty, correct. Your guy Trump is being sued right now for fraud. This isn't made up it is a fact. You ever hear of Trump college? Until Hillary is convicted it is all hearsay. The Republican party and their super pac billionaires have been trying to brain wash the media and the General Electorate for quite some time now. Try to take off those red glasses and see through this political ruse. Your party won't even allow the voters to pick their candidate. They are all trying to circumvent the electoral process which is disgusting and is why Trump is in the lead to begin with. Republicans are fed up with your party's hypocrite leaders.
What a mess the GOP is right now. Your choices are a guy who is hated by the RNC or a guy hated by his own colleagues in the Senate. Both are a recipe for disaster come November. You might as well get used to the heading Madam President and I'm not talking about Selina in VEEP. The GOP's new motto should be we have met the enemy and he is us.
BTE is a bet on solvency. If they can manage to stay in the game for another couple of years this will be a lot higher as in double digits higher. Right now it's a lottery ticket.
