What I see is that the Cons are totally full of it when they scream about him "doubling" the national debt.

Quoting trippyhippy:

What I see is that the Cons are totally full of it when they scream about him "doubling" the national debt.

Actualy that is the CBO, not conservatives, you know the Congressional Budget office...speaking of annual spending if Im not mistaken

but Ill give you an argument you can use to help your conscience, all spending bills originate in the Congress...

So if you were all about helping your president you could use that but the problem really is for you its left right, Cons V Lbs or Progs...so you have no help there since the Congress is doing exactly what BO wants.
