er uh Mr Boo, I'm not "simply posting graphs". I'm posting the CBO Budget Outlooks and I'm cutting and pasting the spending and revenue data from the appropriate table. I dont want any 'road blocks' in between you and the facts. this will have to do until the 2013 Budget outlook comes out"The federal government’s fiscal year 2012 has come to a close, and CBO estimates—in its latest Monthly Budget Review—that the federal budget deficit for the year was about $1.1 trillion, or 7.0 percent of gross domestic product (GDP). "http://www.cbo.gov/publication/43657
LOL no I am not in, you came just to bash Bush.
Oh I see! It's just your opinion that a trillion dollar defect is not irresponsible spending.Awesome.
Here are some simple guidelines to follow to make your make your learning process faster (and more fun)Make clear simple points and back them up Don’t ask questions (other than rhetorical)Stop making it about me.
Mr Boo, please please please quit thinking I'm here to validate your delusions. Make a point and back it up. Here are some tips I posted for solargo ahead and add this to listRespond to the actual posts (not the ones you imagine)
Don't troll or you will be flushed.Once again what is your opinion of the stimulus?
Get ready for a long song and dance, followed by a chorus of 100 gay men singing it's Kermit-It's Not Easy Being Green in acapella.
I always thought that estimates from the CBO were estimates. The only fact that exists, is that they made an estimate. How often have they been spot on?
When government itself is out of control, it doesn't make much sense to get into chicken and egg arguments over Clinton vs Bush, or Bush vs Obama. It's like telling a kid to choose between his alcoholic father and his crack addict mother.Basing arguments on CBO estimates is also BS. All we can go by is what's already been done. It's unsustainable.
uh kram, the estimates are estimates. the actuals are actuals. Did your brain block out the actuals?kram, your doing that thing that everybody at this forum seems to do : argue things I havent posted. And you're still whining about estimates. If the estimates upset you so much, focus on the actuals. In this thread, I've shown the cause of the trillion dollar deficits to be a result of revenue destruction from the Great Bush Recession. I'm not comparing Clinton vs Bush, or Bush vs Obama. Its always funny the things people post in response to my facts.
The stimulus is worthy of its own thread. In the meantime, why cant people respond to the actual facts I've posted. Its always like that. I post facts that shred their comfortable narratives and they lash out, post insults and want to quickly want to change subjects. Did anybody find my clear straightforward posts informative? I did back them up with solid factual links.
