Obama And The Debt.

This video tells a lot.

Basically, Obama opted not to pass a budget for the 2011 fiscal year when BOTH houses were democratic, and he easily could have done so.  In the two years before, he DOUBLED the national debt, that has taken over 200 years to acquire.

And now that Republicans pass a bill in the house to cut spending (by however much the exact amount is, but you think he'd be in favor of attempting to cut as much as possible), he states that he refuses to pass it?

Has he been planning this all along? I'm not saying the president wants the US government to shut down, but it's just something to think about.


  1. thye need to do something i agree cut some workers pay but not all like soldiers i think should b payed more and the president and desk workers less. Just my 2 cents

  2. Being the president must be the hardest job.

  3. ahh.. government stuff - i never really pay attention to what goes on, i rather not :-)

  4. Heres an idea.
    1) Bring our troops home. We have ACTIVE military troops in over 200 countries. Yes, 200 countries.
    We have managed to build bases in these countries after blackmailing them to allow us to do so, in order to expand our empire.
    Cut Government departments, like the department of education. Many people get upset when this is brought up, but people have to look at the facts.
    Our kids are not more educated because of the amount of money we throw at them, money has nothing to do with the success of our students. Just look at countries who spend less, they're far superior to us academically.
    We also have to cut the pay of government workers, who earn far too much as is. Government employees are a liability to our country, not an asset. They do not generate imcome, they are not productive. So when I find out that the woman at the DMV makes $80,000 for doing absolutely nothing, that upsets me. Its our money shes earning. Ours. Taxpayers.
    Running a country is not difficult by any stretch of the imagination. In fact running a country is probably the easiest job in existence. After all, you are your own boss... Who's going to fire you? LOL
    All you have to do is follow the constitution ... its not difficult at all.
    I hope everyone bought their i did at $8/ oz. Its at $40/oz now... Why? Because Obama and Bernanke believe in printing our way to success. Printing money has consequences, now the price of oil and food is going to skyrocket while pretending inflation is low. Why? Because the CPI which measures inflation doesnt account for food or oil, the two things people need the most. The government is corrupt and Obama is just as corrupt as any other president has ever been. Its about time people wake up to that fact.
