I'm sick and tired of RepubliCONS in the media and in Washington Crying about the Debt that They created. Bush spent like a drunken sailor and cut revenue! Now I'm not a math major but that is a reciept for Budget Deficiets! Now the national debt and Budget deficiets are two different things that guys in media have time and time again neglected to inform the people about.
The National debt is exactly what is says it is, it's what the Country owes it's creditors. The Debt Limit is what the country can borrow! The Budget deficiet is the way it is because we aren't bringing in enough revenue! Why? Because of the Silly Bush Tax Cuts for the rich that have Bankrupt our country. I don't care how much you cut if you don't have enough revenue coming in the country we have budget deficiets. And because we don't have enough revenue coming in we have to borrow!
Now the RepubliCON argument has always been lets cut taxes for the rich so they can take that extra money and hire people, well Obama extended the Bush tax cuts and that hasn't spurred job growth has it? Of course not, Job growth is based on demand for goods and services not tax cuts for the rich. But I have to hand it to republiCONs they have done a great job of selling that lie to the world!
The only way to create Jobs in America is to Stop sending them overseas! Our Trade Policies are destroying our country and no one is talking about it.
Everyone is talking about the Debt limit thing like it really matters. Bill Clinton suggested that Obama just go over Congress's head and raise the Debt limit on his own. If Bill suggest it I'm sure it's possible. In truth this is a made up issue by the republiCONS for political gain but they have seen how it has backfired on them, now they want nothing to do with this hot potato but they don't want it to seem like Obama has won so they are fighting him out of spight!
They need to focus on ending bad trade deals and bringing manufacturing back to the United States. There's a reason China's economy is doing better than ours right now, they have our Jobs!
