  •  Thanks - these are good numbers (5+ / 0-)

    to use against those who claim Obama is running up the national debt/deficit
    and don't know what they're talking about.  I can use them as ammo when my GOPer family members want to argue.

    •  This is all good stuff but somehow the (4+ / 0-)

      administration is not making the case and the R's are winning the messaging on this so the truth is just not going to matter.  Bush absolutely created this mess and the wars and the tax cuts were the key problems...not to mention that his awful policies and regulation caused the Wall Street meltdown.  There is no argument there....no bashing, no argument.  But how do we fix it...we stop the wars, we let the tax cuts expire and RAISE taxes on the wealthy and corporations substantially.  Let's see what happens...do they have the courage to let them expire and amend the tax code to fix the problem or do they raise the SS age and reduce benefits instead.  We shall see.
