Facts suck.

Over the next 10 years, under President Barack Obama’s budget, the total deficit would be $8.5 trillion.
The national debt would be approaching $20 trillion in 2020.
By 2020, balancing the budget by taxes alone would require a 30 percent increase in revenue.

Is this depressing or what?

Oh and the suggested solutions by Obama, Dems, and Repubs aren't any better... It is time to get people with more than half a brain in there to fix this disaster.

Here are some of the Dems and Obama's ideas since the other article just names the Repubs ideas.

    That is one of the best political statements I've seen on CM! They are all idiots.

  • Well with all due respect anon our debt would not be near as bad if Obama hadnt done the massive spending he has within one short years time.

    Crissy I agree we need to get people on the hill who are truly concerned for us Americans

  • Carpy, I agree.  The US economy, the market. The Stimulus was NOT the solution. We DO NOT NEED special interest liberal payoffs. We need huge tax breaks that encourage small business growth and development.  We don't need golf courses in remote rural areas.


    Crissy, there you go again... Facts... There are 'some' Obama supporters who consider these such articles and political analysis of  Obama as bashing and endless complaining....   It's not like we make this sh*t up.. Obama, Congress, and the BO admin do a pretty good job of showing their inexperience and lack of transparency/accountability ALL on their own... 


    Will they defend him and his administration?  Or will they accuse you of bashing him with those dern ol' facts/analysis?

  • Crissy, it's very depressing. I can't imagine anyone who is happy about it.

  • There is only one thing to do. We have to send everyone in DC on an extended holiday. The cm "gang of 10" will go to DC and straighten things out. I know, I know. I am not happy about it either. I have a lot of things going on and this will put a kink in my schedule.......... But someone has to clean up this mess and get us back on the right track.
