What do you guys think?


Simple question, do you think the deficit has grown under president Obama? Yes or no

So, would President Obama’s budget plan really increase deficit spending much more than other modern presidents? Well, yeah, to the tune of seven times more, measured as a percentage of economic output, than under President Kennedy over 45 years ago

I'd bet everything I own that he will not pass a budget at all while he's in office, however long that is. I'm also convinced that he will figure out a way to stay in office for a third consecutive term.

Just as I thought, You guys are all wrong. Now, to follow up, where would you guys say you get the majority of your political news from?

here's a link that talks about the projected deficit dropping to $845 billion, I know you guys will probably freak out that it's Rachel Maddow but she is citing a CBO report, and quotes directly from it. The graph also shows the deficit shrinking under Obama.
LINK

Here is a link to the federal deficit graph creation portion on the St. Louis Federal Reserve website. It shows from 1960, but to get a better view you should change the observation range under the graph to 2009-01-20 (Barack Obama's inauguration date). Or even better, go back to 2000 and watch Clinton's 200 billion dollar surplus evaporate.

If we already have a deficit and each fiscal year is projected to have a deficit then, by definition, isn't he "growing the deficit"?

By not pasing a budget, they have been able to play games with the numbers. The money's still gone.

Not really if you are talking due to his policies.

The main drivers under him have been:

1. Entitlement growth (nothing to do with him)

2. The stimulus - The GOP actually said it wasn't big enough at the time

I think he has done a pretty good job of at least attempting to control discressionary spending. He has failed to make needed cuts though IMO. Which is a failure of the entire Dem party. Entitlement reform is needed.

His social wellfare spending is not really his and is mainly a result of programs in place before him, often being abused. The obamaphone is an example here. Growth in food stamps and wellfare are not a product of expanded policy but rather the economy and abuse of the system. Extended unemployment benefits is a fault of Congress as a whole IMO. If a GOP had been president during this time, I expect unemployment benefits would have still been extended (something I am against FTR).

You guys are not arguing with me, you're arguing with the Congressional Budget Office and the Federal Reserve of St. Louis, but don't worry you aren't alone. Only 6% of Americans (myself included) could tell you that the deficit is shrinking at the fastest past in modern American history.

Here's some links for you guys. All cite the CBO and Fed. Enjoy...

Let me guess, another link that forces Obama's stimulus into Bush's last fiscal year. Since the stimulus was done early enough in Obama's term, it was still during the previous fiscal year. Yes, the man managed to create five years of huge deficits in only four years.

re: What do you guys think?


A budget has been passed every single year that Obama has been the president. I'm not re-posting the exact dates and times, but you're welcome to Google it or go way back in my post history to find it.

This is a fact.
