From THE BUDGET FOR FISCAL YEAR 2009, HISTORICAL TABLES - Table 2.1—RECEIPTS BY SOURCE: 1934–2013

2003 Total Receipts - $1.782 Trillion

2003 - Bush Tax cuts implemented

It seems the Bush tax rate cuts greatly increased tax revenue!!

Thanks for the info Oldman!

oldman “F Y 2009 historic tables”

Here’s a clue for you, oldman. 2 0 0 9. Those tables are PROJECTIONS. NOT FACTS. NOT HISTORY. They were written IN 2 0 0 9.

When your reality is based on PROJECTIONS you become ignorant. And Democrit.

"If you strip out the stimulus, discretionary spending over the last few years has been quite modest and is scheduled to go to levels we haven’t experienced in modern times,” Robert Reischauer, a former director of the CBO, said in an interview."

When you don't count the 831 billion dollar stimulus......

Bush had actionable intelligence and sat on his hands and let 3,000 Americans die on American soil so he could have two phony wars and make Cheney a lot of money. HALIBURTON.

Gooseman is right. There are too many domestic Democrits willing to destroy Americans’ Constitutionally guaranteed freedoms and rights to advance their “progressive” wealth-spreading agenda and promote their Choomer in Chief so he and his socialist party can keep giving them “free” stuff our children will have to pay for. It’s irresponsible. It’s unpatriotic.

We have just too many domestic terrorists willing to destroy America, just like the Taliban, because they love their party more than their country.

See it everyday in this rag.

You might want to read that again: "Issa hasn’t made the all-important connection to the White House. And he may not be able to. The news this week that he won’t release the full transcripts of his interviews with IRS officials—interviews he selectively quoted from to imply White House complicity—suggests that what they contain may in fact exonerate the administration of the very charge Issa is laboring so hard to prosecute."

But after a burst of attention, Issa’s investigation appears to have stalled. Although he turned up embarrassing material—has any government official been humiliated quite like the IRS commissioner in the dorky video dressed up as Spock?—Issa hasn’t made the all-important connection to the White House. And he may not be able to. The news this week that he won’t release the full transcripts of his interviews with IRS officials—interviews he selectively quoted from to imply White House complicity—suggests that what they contain may in fact exonerate the administration of the very charge Issa is laboring so hard to prosecute.

But Issa wasn’t the force people expected him to be. His biggest investigation, into the botched anti-gun smuggling operation that left a Border Patrol agent dead, incited right-wing talk radio listeners. Beyond that, though, it barely registered. After two years in power, Issa seemed more bark than bite.

Then came last month’s revelation that IRS agents had singled out Tea Party groups for special scrutiny. Here was an issue that seized public attention and posed a legitimate threat to Obama. Since then, nobody in Congress has pushed harder than Issa to pin the scandal on the White House.

From Bloomberg news:

When Republicans won control of the House of Representatives in 2010, Representative Darrell Issa of California was supposed to become a star. Issa, who made no secret of his ambition, took over the Oversight and Government Reform Committee, vowing to use the power of his chairmanship to stage hundreds of hearings and hold the Obama administration to account. Anticipating what he promised would be “constant battle,” the White House hired extra lawyers and braced for the onslaught.

They crossed Barack "bin Laden killer" Obamas RED LINE in SYRIA.

Now they are in big trouble, why Obama is going to flip a quarter 4250 and make a decision in a couple of years as to what to do in Syria.

But man they crossed the red line. Ain't no going back boyz.

They sure did a great job of catching the Boston Marathon Bomber Brothers.

Oh wait, they did NOT catch them

But but but the RUSSIANS warned us DIRECTLY about them TWICE.

And they still were ignored.

Obama Domestic Terrorism Policy: FAIL!

oops!

"A shooting at a St. Louis business Thursday that left four people dead appears to be a murder-suicide, a police official said.

After a review of evidence, including a surveillance video, officers determined there had been an argument in the office of a home health care business, Capt. Michael Sack told reporters."
