August 2, 2011, Obama signed the law allowing the federal debt ceiling be raised from $14.3 trillion dollars to $16.7 trillion dollars.
This is less than a month later, August 30, 2011, and the debt is increasing so fast you can’t even write it down.
Won’t be long before it reaches $16 trillion and they will want to raise it again. That’s guaranteed.
According the CNN, this was supposed to extend to 2013 beyond the 2012 election.
Here’s a recap of how that went down in summer of 2011:http://www.npr.org/2011/08/02/138916516/senate-takes-up-debt-limit-bill-passage-likely
Well, in less than a year, that $2 trillion has been borrowed and spent and we are now up against the ceiling once more.
The national debt now exceeds GDP.
The debt is over $50,000 per citizen.
The obama has said he will not tolerate another fight to reduce spending that the republicans waged in 2011. I think he wants to “tax the rich.” Where did I get that idea?
Some calculations have been made that if you take every dime from every person and family with adjusted gross income of over a million dollars, it would run the government for about 100 days.
The obama submitted a budget that was so irresponsible it was just voted down in the congress with 0 votes – that’s Zero votes – because not even one democrat was willing to attach their name to it.
The Senate has not submitted a budget in over 3 years, which is required by law every year.
The republicn House of Representatives has submitted to the Senate 2 or three budget plans to cut spending and balance the budget, yet,
“Democrats controlling the Senate rejected for the second year in a row Wednesday a budget plan passed by House Republicans.”
That’s Wednesday, 5.16.12.
And further, you will hear the democrats and the president whining on about how it is republicans who are the problem.
And the corrupt media will serve as their mouthpiece, repeating whatever they are told to say.
