Republicans Shrug Off Deficit Woes in Half-Trillion-Dollar Binge

?How are you going to balance the budget when you are spending all of this money?? said Republican Walter Jones, a North Carolina Republican. ?We were the party that advocated less government and less spending. We aren?t keeping our promise.?

Stan Collender, a budget expert and executive vice president of Qorvis MSLGroup, put it simply: ?Hypocrisy, or Worse"

Article

How things change when you have the majority. 

the Markster --- 3 years ago -

Never has a republican ever:
*Reduced the deficit
*Balanced the budget
*Made Government smaller 

Prolix Raconteur --- 3 years ago -

There was that sequester thingy that Team O said would bring about the end-times.

WHAT!?!!!!

(Here come the excuses!) 

SoupIsGoodFood --- 3 years ago -

There was that sequester thingy that Team O said would bring about the end-times.

What happened with that?

Oh yeah!!! I actually worked!!!!

Also, remember this doozy from Pelosi:

Pelosi: "Civilization As We Know It Would Be In Jeopardy If Republicans Win The Senate"

What a kook.

Maybe not. We need to see what happens when they need to raise the debt ceiling.

They just spend the money now we get to see what happens when the bill comes due. 

witchywoman --- 3 years ago -

So you haven't worked since? Don't blame Obama for your lack of motivation.

The GOP's trillion dollar spending binge....just one of the reasons why I abandoned the GOP in 1998. I never looked back.

Wasn't enough, eh?

Have you seen Obama's debt? 

SoupIsGoodFood --- 3 years ago -

Maybe not. We need to see what happens when they need to raise the debt ceiling.

I'm going to say "NOT". But that liberal drama is fun.

Why is a liberal worried about raising the debt ceiling? It's the GOP who fights against raising it. 

the Markster --- 3 years ago -

It's the GOP who fights against raising it.

No. Soup. Its the GOP who fights the president. They are about opposition to anything this president does. Especially if it benefits the people.

Never has a republican ever:
*Reduced the deficit
*Balanced the budget
*Made Government smaller

Ever 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 3 years ago -

They are about opposition to anything this president does.

Thats what they were elected to do. They won, get over it. 

the Markster --- 3 years ago -

No bob. they were elected to get things done.
*Jobs bill
*Loretta Lynch
*Infrastructure
*Budget
Things that benefit "We the People"
50 plus attempts at repealing the ACA isnt a benefit to the American public. bob.

They were not elected to oppose everything the president does. btw The very president that was elected twice. He won. Get over it. 

a889324uu --- 3 years ago -

lol Imp - and Obama won. Twice. That's this many. One. Two.

Get over it. 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 3 years ago -

50 plus attempts at repealing the ACA isnt a benefit to the American public.

It is to me if it gets rid of that additional 3.9% tax hike. 

SoupIsGoodFood --- 3 years ago -

lol Imp - and Obama won. Twice. That's this many. One. Two.

You struck a nerve, Bob. 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 3 years ago -

You struck a nerve, Bob.

I know, its just too easy... 

SoupIsGoodFood --- 3 years ago -

What short memories they have. Remember when Democrats in Congress did the same to George W Bush? 

wayward1 --- 3 years ago -

From authorizing the war in Iraq, to raising the debt ceiling multiple times to approving the bail outs - is there anything the congressional dems didn't give G. W. Bush? 

DatBoyHooD --- 3 years ago -

MM you realize the republicans were in control
Of congress when Clinton achieved all his accomplishments .. You blame congress for Obama not doing what he needs to do then you need to give congress props when things happen

Now let's talk hypocrisy, SoupFerBrains and Ray of Doom. 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 3 years ago -

Now let's talk hypocrisy, SoupFerBrains and Ray of Doom.

Lets see if I understand this. You want a GOP Congress to undo in just 4 months the trillions in deficits caused by the first 4 years of a WH and Congress in Dem control. It will take years to undo the damage done. 

wayward1 --- 3 years ago -

It will take years to undo the damage done.

If you can't beat 'em. Join 'em. Spend some more. 

the Markster --- 3 years ago -

You blame congress for Obama not doing what he needs

No. I blame Congress for not doing what they need to do. They get no props for:
*Shutting down the Gov.
*Trying to repeal the ACA
*Not passing a jobs bill
*Blocking equal pay for women

The idea that a republican Congress was voted in office solely to oppose everything a twice elected president does is just plain ignorant.

This congress is not the congress PBC had to contend with. In short: That was then, this is now. 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 3 years ago -

The idea that a republican Congress was voted in office solely to oppose everything a twice elected president does is just plain ignorant.

Are you saying the majority of voting Americans are ignorant? 

wayward1 --- 3 years ago -

Are you saying the majority of voting Americans are ignorant??

I think Ray's cartoon pretty much does that. 

the Markster --- 3 years ago -

Are you saying the majority of voting Americans are ignorant?

If you can find that quote where I stated those words, then yes. If not, then why would you pose such an ignorant question? 

Prolix Raconteur --- 3 years ago -

*Shutting down the Gov (Sequester) was the only deficit reduction action taken in the last decade, and it worked. The only services shut down were the ones Team O did in a hissy fit.

*Blocking equal pay for women?? Equal pay for women is guaranteed under federal law. 

the Markster --- 3 years ago -

PR
Our national credit rating took a hit. How is that beneficial to you and me? 

Prolix Raconteur --- 3 years ago -

Didn't affect you or I one iota. 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 3 years ago -

*Blocking equal pay for women?? Equal pay for women is guaranteed under federal law

He has been told that time and time again yet refuses to believe it. 

the Markster --- 3 years ago -

Fair enough. PR

As to equal pay and fed regulation. Equal pay isn't guaranteed. Sex discrimination is. Not quite the same. Right to work states can pay women less than men.

My point is, republicans have blocked legislation for fair/equal pay. 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 3 years ago -

Right to work states can pay women less than men.

No Mark, you are completely wrong. 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 3 years ago -

Equal pay isn't guaranteed. Sex discrimination is. Not quite the same

WTH? 

the Markster --- 3 years ago -

How so? 

Prolix Raconteur --- 3 years ago -

"Sex discrimination is guaranteed"??

HUH?

That is also illegal, but you already knew that. 

the Markster --- 3 years ago -

I meant protection against sex discrimination is guaranteed at the federal level. 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 3 years ago -

I meant protection against sex discrimination is guaranteed at the federal level.

Its the same law.
