Yes raise taxes ??!!??

FY2012 shows $3.5 Trillion binge spending with a $1 Trillion deficit.

FY2012 only had $2.45 Trillion in revenues.

How much of a tax increase ?

Who would pay that difference ?


Socialist binge spending don't work --- = Fail....


The problem is the spending, not the revenues.

That's kind of what I just said...we're spending too much and not taking enough in.

You only seem to have read one part of my post.

Yes, Obama inherited a mess from Bush, but he promised to change things - remember that? Those charts don't show much change to me. He's had quite a bit of time now no?

Has our economy Improved - my under and unemployed friends haven't noticed? Has our debt decreased? Please tell me something he has done to reverse the course of Bush.

Don't cover for Obama's incompetence by pointing to Bush's. BTW, never said Bush wasn't a disaster either.

Meet the new boss.....

Maybe more along the lines of: maxing out your credit cards, applying for more cards - when the card company starts telling you 'no' you call them idiots. I mean come on, why can't they give another card?

I'm so sick of this one-sided, piling on crap happening at ATS these days. Truly, truly sick of it. No one even bothers to check facts. Sorta like...well never mind.

very clever.

Your link that says Obama raised the debt ceiling 3 times is absolutely correct.

But that story was written a few years ago !!!!!

The debt ceiling under Obama has in fact been raised 7 times.

This table shows 6. Add the one in early 2013 makes 7....

Fine add the others if there are any. That wasn't the point. The point is the comparison. They ALL do it. Not to mention that piling up interest on debt incurred by past administrations with our blessings it seems is what is eating up the bulk of it. But that doesn't appear to even factor in or matter to most of the posters in this thread (and many other threads around here lately). Like I said. Sick of it.

You have to have a congress that is willing to bargain the Republicans don't bargain they make demands. The Republicans have shot down everything no matter if it benefited the country or not. He could just say the heck with congress and executive order everything do you want that? I sure wouldn't.

The Democrats don't bargain they make demands and blame everybody else for their miserable failures.

The Democrats have shot down everything no matter if it benefited the country or not.

Obama has said the heck with congress and issues executive orders for everything anyway.
