When 40 cents of every dollar you spend is borrowed money, is there any other possible outcome?

null

America is now over $15 trillion in the hole, but thanks to Nancy Pelosi’s connections at Visa, at least the US is now earning Rewards Points on the debt.

This must be a good sign, because, as Sheriff Joe Biden says, you have to spend money to keep from going bankrupt. Thank goodness Obama signed that pay as you go legislation last year!

The debt has risen over $4 trillion just since Obama took office, which is a rate of debt spending previously called “unpatriotic” by none other than… Obama:

    Just for perspective, Bush`s "unpatriotic" spending of $5T in 8 years is like $2/3T per yr, while Barack "Patriot Extraordinaire" Oblamer`s is like $1-1/3T per year, OR, pretty much double Bush`s rate !

    Oddly, Obummer`s rate of lying is incalculable ! His rate of blaming others is also OFF THE CHARTS !

    Mmmm, one of the traits of a psychopath is incessant lying and deception.

    Oh.boy…not good. Another trait is…charming, cunning, manipulative, comically grandiose, egocentric, with an appalling lack of empathy.

    Uh..Signpainterguy…I thiink I see a pattern here.

    It's OK for the Democrats to run up the debt. They spend the money wisely.

    The pattern I see is like spilled green KoolAid on cheap, white carpet. Very tuff to clean out the stain ! Definitely nuthin` pretty about it !

    Well… I'm sure Doug is way off here. I was watching Fox just this morning and it was at $14,928,447, 316.03.

    I went to put on a pot of coffee and throw a bagel in the toaster AND…!?

    I'll never complain about going to a meeting and getting stung for a parking ticket again! ( Not that I ever 'pay' 'em? )

    Yup, it sure is deplorable. But it was and continues to be a joint effort. When the fewmets finally hit the windmill, maybe the conservative element (minute though it is) will finally take over. Either that or prepare to forcibly repel your friendly neighborhood OWS loonies.

    A dollar bill is 0.0043 inches thick. Assuming C-notes are the same thickness, a 15 Trillion dollar stack of Hundred Dollar bills would be 10,180 MILES high.
    That's a lot of jack.

    “The debt has risen over $4 trillion just since Obama took office, which is a rate of debt spending previously called “unpatriotic” by none other than… Obama”

    So, he told the American people exactly what his presidency was going to be, “unpatriotic”, and a majority put him there anyway.

    HOPE: A chicken in every pot every week, PETA be damned, and

    CHANGE: You won’t have to work one day in your life for it.

    Whoo-hoo! Party time! Mission accomplished!

    Now let's get those taxes up higher to match people, wayyyy higher!! C'mon, we can do it, this is America after all! Lean Forward!

    PS- and just think, if that stack of $15 trillion was $1 bills, it would reach to the moon and back… MORE THAN TWICE !! Sweet Jesus..
