    So the POTUS agrees with those of us that believe we must get spending under control. Good....He should have no problem backing the new Senator's who wish to implement this.

    The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.

    This is just political posturing by Obama. Watch his actions not his empty words. This man is a two faced liar. The bill comes up in March and the Repubs should attach hundreds of billions of dollars in spending cuts. The Repubs will never have a better opportunity than this. They can also chop away parts of the health care bill. I hope they have enough sense to realize that. Not holding my breath cause Repubs were the first ones to blink during Clinton's term when there was a government shut down.

    The debt ceiling was not raised for Bush you pathetic loser, it was raised for the NATION. The debt ceiling was raised by a DIMWIToRAT Congress. The debt ceiling needs to be rolled back to Pre-O Blah Blha levels. Now go back and roll out your mat, it's nap time.

    Quit yer whining about it. The big O wanted the job. And my big prediction for 2011 is that the big O will vote to raise the debt ceiling this year and at least as many as Bushy did. Can't run 3 wars and endless social goodies on nothin'.

    Watch your language. There are children reading this. You should know, being one of them.

    Now, here's the lesson. Let's do the math, shall we?

    The debt ceiling increased by $3.015 Trillion during Bush's first six years, with Republican congresses, or roughly $500 Billion per year. His last two years in office, with Democratic congresses, saw an increase of $2.350 Trillion, or $1.175 Trillion per year. Obama's first two years in office saw the debt ceiling increase by $2.979 Trillion, or roughly $1.48 Trillion per year. That means that during Bush's first six years, the rate of increase was less than half of what it was with a Democratic congress, and roughly one third of what it was with a Democratic congress and Obama.

    Want to push it by congresses alone? Republican congresses had the previously cited $3.015 Trillion over six years, while the Democrats, with only four years of control, increased the debt ceiling an additional $5.329 Trillion, or $1.44 Trilion per year.

    So, what do we learn from this? Well, those of us who can do math learn that a Democratic house, senate and executive branch will increase the debt ceiling about three times faster than a Republican house, senate and executive branch. A Democratic house and Republican president will increase the debt celiing about twice as fast as a Republican government, but it takes Democrats running all three branches to run up epic debt.

    That is what we learn. You, of course, will pretend that this post doesn't exist and learn nothing.

    It is amazing that they would have a budget surplus when every year of Clinton's administration the national debt continued to rise.
    How is obama working out for you?
