    Thanks Hillary and corrupt DNC!

    Don't take my word for it, go back and check the tape and see what I said about Trump AND Hillary.

    Here's a hint: I said they both sucked.
    So, why all the Cheeto residue on your mouth?

    Digging out from the fucking hole that Bush left him with. You have the worst recession in history and your debt is going to skyrocket the next 5-10 years regardless of who is president. Some are just too fucking stupid to understand economics.

    Republican dipshits thinking we should practice austerity following a recession is what caused the spike in the debt far more than Obama ever did.

    That's $9.321 Trillion added to the debt by Obama.

    That's per treasurydirect.gov

    Twist and spin that information any way you want.
    The president does not control the purse strings and to blame Obama for the spike in the debt, especially following the worst recession in history, is what a flaming idiot with no grasp of economics would attempt to do. Congratulations.

    You sound like Reagan! Remember him. The guy who said "you want out of a recession you buy your way out, fuck the debt it's big enough to take care of itself". If we had done that when the dipshits in congress were talking about austerity we would have been out of it, on the mend with half the debt in half the time. I think they did it so dumbshits now could say it was Obama's fault.

    We never would have had that spike if not for the recession and Obama had nothing to do with that.

    Obama is the all time champion when it comes to adding to the debt!
    How does one become so ignorant of economics?
