You know what really drives me nuts?
Reagen added 2 trillion dollars to the debt in 8 years
Bush sr added 1.25 trillion dollars to the debt in 4 years.
Clinton added 1.4 trillion dollars to the debt in 8 years.
Bush jr added 6.64 trillion dollars to the debt in 8 years.
Obama added 1.7 trillion dollars to the debt in 2 years.
Why is this a democrat thing? In the last 100 years, republicans have drove up the debt at least 4 times faster then democrats. And Obama is dealing with the worst finical crash ever. The only way to get out of a depression is to spend money, history teaches you that.
I can see, we are all in this mess now, so pointing fingers at the past will not work. But could we actually follow the constitution for once? Maybe?
The 14th amendment section 4 states
The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned.
The constitution forbids what is currently happening in Washington. raising the debt can not be questioned, but the words in the constitution of the United States of America.
I know we can not agree on the terms of liberty and freedom in that document, but what the heck is up with ignoring a very clearly written statement adopted in 1868.
Oh and for the record this is directed at no one but just stating a few facts.
