It’s a numbers game that has nothing to do with fixing the economy, just more taxpayer money to spend.
When you point out that the current federal debt is $17.6 Trillion and climbing, far left democrat extremists are quick to point out that the deficit is down.
Which is true, but note that they don’t point out the deficit reduction is from a peak during Obama’s reign, but up from the time he took office.
Let’s look at the actual numbers.
The current federal deficit is $572.1 billion, with a federal tax revenue of $2.9 trillion. So Barry’s handling of the federal government is to spend over a half trillion dollars than he is taking in, even with the federal tax revenue at record high levels.
So what is that $572.1 trillion dollar deficit down from?
Let’s look at the federal deficit in 2012, after several years of Barry’s firm fiscal hand. it was at $1.1 Trillion. The federal tax income was $2.4 trillion. Do the math here kids. Our Dear Leader hasn’t reduced spending, he has jacked taxes through the roof. The deficit is down about $400 billion, and increase in federal tax income is up $500 million. So he has also increased federal spending instead of paying down the $17.6 trillion federal debt.
Let’s go back to 2008, near the end of two terms of President George W. Bush. The federal deficit was $408.1 Billion with a federal tax income of $2.5 trillion. Note that the deficit was in fact lower than it is currently, and that is with $400 billion less in federal tax revenue.
So when a democrat claims that the deficit is down, that person is is in fact, deliberately lying by omission. The federal deficit under Obama has gone up, despite squeezing nearly a additional half a trillion dollars out of the pockets of tax paying US citizens in an economy that can be politely described as “stagnant” at best.by jeffli6 with no comments yet
They want us to send more US tax dollars. The people will still come, no amount of money to their governments will stop it. Throwing bad money after good.
“That is a situation that the coyotes are very perversely taking very much an opportunity to exploit,” Mr. Hernandez, speaking through an interpreter, told reporters. [...]
Mr. Perez and Mr. Hernandez suggested that more U.S. aid to their countries would help solve the problem.
“We’re dealing with the problem, even with our limited means,” said Mr. Hernandez. “But with the level of complexity of the problem we can’t do it alone.”
Mr. Perez added: “One dollar invested in Central American security is one dollar invested in U.S. security.” keep reading

The theme is so outrageously elitism it makes your blood boil. I guess rich liberals don’t understand or are completely clueless, how can you possibly consider the theme tasteful?
One crisis after another all over the world and this is how your President and liberal elite function….unbelievable.

“Every human being has either XX or XY chromosomes embedded in every cell of his or her body. That makes each of us biologically male or female, no matter how we feel about that fact. To believe otherwise is essentially a psychiatric disorder.” keep reading

The feral aren’t the feral because, say, the educational system is defective—although it is defective and fundamentally so, we’re now 24th in the world. Education fails to engage and redirect the feral because it’s built around the fantasy that everybody will be smart and nice if nurtured just so. No they won’t. No amount of education can improve the incurious. They will become what they admire—the stunningly stupid, criminally improvident and violently impulsive. They know it and we know it. The difference is, they admit it and we don’t.
