In 2008 when Barack Obama was a candidate here is what he had to say about the federal deficit under George Bush.
“On July 3, 2008, Barack Obama said that adding $4 trillion in debt was irresponsible and unpatriotic.”
Obama: “The problem is, is that the way Bush has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from $5 trillion for the first 42 presidents – #43 added $4 trillion by his lonesome, so that we now have over $9 trillion of debt that we are going to have to pay back — $30,000 for every man, woman and child. That’s irresponsible. It’s unpatriotic.”
We are about to finish the Obama presidency how did he do with the debt?
Well the $9 trillion he talked about is now $19.5 Trillion and will be $20 when he departs.
He doubled it. He doubled what every other President from 1 through Bush created.
If Bush was “irresponsible” and “unpatriotic” what does that make Obama in his own words?
A $20 trillion debt when he leaves office with Obamacare about to hit us hard we have a major issue that could destroy our economy. Bush doubled it to $10 trillion and Obama one upped him to $20 trillion. Very bad. Here’s Obama in his own words.
How’s this for moxey? Following the uprise over the EpiPens incident of raising drug prices while it’s CEO salary grows, Hillary has reacted. Now she didn’t mention the CEO is the daughter of a Democratic Senator. Nor did she mention the CEO endorsed her, or that she contributed to the Clinton Foundation. But she did say how outraged she is over the drug companies and the outrageous profits. She wants the people protected —– now. You can count on Hillary being on the people’s side whenever there is an outrage. Otherwise remember her foundation.
With the likelihood of gaining the Presidency, thus controlling the Supreme Court nominees, and gaining at least majority control of the senate through the tie breaking VP vote, the Democrats now think they have a shot at the house too. While I think they will make gains, I doubt they can take control, they see a possibility.
Melania Trump is suing the Daily Mirror (England) for saying she was an escort earlier in her life. Image that. She should have just slept with interns, assistants and supporters and nothing would have been wrong. And, her spouse could have been President.
Let’s see, they threaten to kill cops with quotes like this on Facebook “All lives can’t matter until Black Lives Matter!!!! Kill all white cops!!!!” and the prosecutor refuses to bring charges? What is going on in Detroit?
If you live in a high tax liberal run state here is what you have to put up with. A liquor chain in Connecticut for a few days sold prices below the higher mandated price the government said they must. They felt the public was being ripped off and wanted the opportunity for lower pricing. They got fined $37,500 for going below “mandated prices”.
The bargains are over Liquor insurrection ends, Total Wine will pay $37,500 fine.
After a week of slashing prices on its wine and liquor and thumbing its nose at the state’s minimum-pricing law, Total Wine & More agreed Thursday to pay a $37,500 fine for charging customers too little.
“Our customers deserve lower prices, and we’ll continue to fight on your behalf,” the company wrote in a statement on its website. “Please contact your state legislators and ask them to stand up to the package store lobby while we fight in court to lower prices.”
Total Wine, which tried and failed to get the General Assembly to change the minimum-price law over the last four years, filed a federal antitrust lawsuit last week charging some prices are 24 percent higher in Connecticut than in surrounding states. Then it took its fight directly to consumers, with full-page ads in newspapers across the state announcing in bold red print how much less it was charging than the “August CT Mandated Price.”
