    Nice.
    Go troll some other thread. Quit calling people liars, second time in a fucking week, that's why you got booted from my friends list.

    I USED THE TITLE FROM THE SNOPES article. If YOU don't like it, go cry to your teddy bear.

    No, it's an incredible amount of money for less than one year.

    Obama also had to pay the horrendous debt of 2 wars that Bush started off budget while trying to heal the economy.

    Bush gave the auto loans when the nation was crumbling. Obama had to finish it but was blamed for that.

    No, it isn't. It's about a 1% deviation. The number fluctuates throughout the year in tandem with normal governmental budgetary functions.

    BTW: Snopes is currently in receivership and is not a trustworthy source of information.

    I do not have to share anything. I gave you a link on the vagaries of the budget in different time periods.

    Any fool worth his salt know the deficit drops when taxes are collected. But then the debt goes right back up. If you do not understand this I sure as hell would not wanting you to touch my budget, mister birdbrain!

    It was ridiculous that no matter what Obama did, it was "bad, evil, socialism." Trump will get zero credit, as well. I do believe that Trump cuts way too much on programs, but he certainly had a hand in reducing the debt.

    Her article, from the Wall Street Journal, suggests that while the debt may be down at the moment, that's the result of cyclical patterns rather than a downward trajectory. That would explain why we still need to raise the debt limit.
