@oldman, Since you so enjoy the White House Historical tables, maybe you should check out Fiscal Year 2008 Table 1.3—SUMMARY OF RECEIPTS, OUTLAYS, AND SURPLUSES OR DEFICITS (–) IN CURRENT DOLLARS, CONSTANT (FY 2000) DOLLARS.

The Bush budget had us on track for a $61 Billion surplus in 2012!!!

Wraith I got it this time!

@oldman,

From the White House Table 7.1—FEDERAL DEBT AT THE END OF YEAR: 1940–2017

Federal debt by the end of 2017 - $21,325,493,000,000

So lets give Obama a 2 year window and only calculate Obama's debt from 2010 on! The Federal debt at the end of that year was $13,528,807,000,000.

You'll not find many Conservatives fond of Bush's spending, but Obama is the undisputed King of Federal indebtedness. The information from the White House's website proves it beyond a shadow of a doubt!

if you keep putting a newer bandaid (stopgap)over old ones each time because you are afraid to see the ( debt maintenance )blood, you will get an infection with no cure. The people who care are dying off and the progressive loonies are becoming the majority.

Wvex, multiply 1,300 billion by 4 and get someone to explain the results to you. Try checking the site I suggested and learn the truth. You righties lie when rhe truth would sound better and never let the facts get in the way.

And while you never know what goes on in poster's lives, it's quite interesting that Goose, (his brother) Wonder and Hoopie (to some extent) are largely absent on these topics!

I guess even liberals have figured out that the lies being spread by this admin diminish the party's dignity!

Their silence speaks volumes!!

@ Oldmansvan

Federal debt Jan 2000 $5.628 Trillion.

Federal debt Jan 2008 $9.986 Trillion.

Federal debt Jan 2013 $16.35 Trillion

Federal debt (est) Jan 2016 $20.391 Trillion

That's $20,391 Billion in debt and liberals are having a fit about reducing the increases in spending by $43 billion! Obama is having a having a meltdown over .002% of that total!!

(Google Whitehouse dotgov historical tables Table 7.1—FEDERAL DEBT AT THE END OF YEAR: 1940–2017)

Oldman, My apologies if you are indeed very old and somewhat infirm! If so, please accept my submittal of the White House dot gov Historical tables as my reference! I know how fond you are of the White House's Historical tables!

So my apologies if you are so constricted! If not, you are an utter MORON and have no idea what you are posting!!!

Please post some facts! Something other than bbbbbut Bush or Fauxxxxx nooze, if you are able!

Jan. 2000: 265 billion surplus. Jan. 2008 after 8 years of Bush: 1,300 billion deficit. Even Faux Nooz viewers should be able to figure this out. Go figure.

Investors dot com:

" Budget: When President Obama put out his "balanced" plan to avoid the automatic sequester cuts, no one noticed. Which is probably just as well for Obama, given how embarrassingly unbalanced it is.

Last week, New York Times columnist David Brooks wrote about how Obama "hasn't actually come up with a proposal to avert sequestration, let alone one that is politically plausible."

Turns out, Obama did have one, although Brooks can be excused for not knowing it, since the administration hasn't exactly been promoting this so-called plan.

That, too, is understandable, since it isn't a plan at all, just a list of numbers with little to back them up.

There are no details, for example, about the $200 billion in cuts to defense and domestic discretionary programs, other than that Obama wants them split evenly.

And while he offers $400 billion in "health savings," 30% are lumped in a bucket labeled "other."
