Demonstrating more ignorance of how our system works? It's like claiming Liberal Dems were for NAFTA just because Clinton put together a coalition of GOPers and conservatives Dems to pass it. This is what Reagan did to past ERTA. And BTW, Reagan NEVER submitted a balanced budget.
That would depend on whether you think breaking Dems down to subcategories like “liberal Dems” really helps you argument that 140 democrats voted in favor of the Democrat bill.
Can you point to the part of the Constitution that says The president has to submit a Balanced budget, or where the president has the Power of Purse. President can ask for whatever he wants. It’s not his job to control Federal spending. That task rest solely upon the House of Representatives.
History set up quite the experiment between the 70's and 80's. When Dems were in control... the CUMULATIVE DEBT never reached more than about 960 billion... nothing to be proud of, but at least it wasn't grotesque fiscal irresponsibility. Reagan almost tripled that debt in his 8 years leaving the nation with about 2.7 trillion in debt
Would you like to see the a graph of the Federal debt by Control of the House of Representatives? Would you like to hazard a guess on what happens when the GOP gains control of the House? You do not need to guess, you remember the Clinton years.
In the mind of a political partisan, their side gets all the credit, and the other side gets all the blame. So, of course... for you Reagan is blameless for his Voodoo Economics and it's all the Dem's fault.
Let me get this straight, and have it in writing for future generations.
You apply ZERO blame to the 1 body of the federal government whose sole constitutional purpose is fiscal well being of the country. Where all matters of Power of Purse must originate. That without their consent, not a Single penny can be spent by the federal government on toilet paper.
I wonder, who do you blame when you overspend on anything.
If there was an intellegent right winger here, You'd be really screwed.
