      If you were just listening to the show, I went over these facts and figures to deal with Obama's "It's the Republicans fault!" bilge he's spewing across the countryside. Americans SHOULD know, but they most certainly don't, that all spending bills originate in the House. Keeping this fact in mind, the Democrats have been the majority in Congress since January of 2007. That means that Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid have been pulling the purse strings since 2007. But it is all Bush's fault!
      Take a look at these figures from the Wall Street Journal:
      • When the Democrats took control of Congress in 2007, the debt held by the public was 36.2% of GDP. It rose to 40.2% the next year. This year it will be about 63.6%, next year 68.6%, then 77% of GDP in 2020. And the Obama administration's budget estimates 218% in 2050.
      • The deficit in 2007 was $160 billion. In the next year the Pelosi-Reid Congress took it up to $458 billion, and when President Obama came into office in 2009 it hit $1.4 trillion. The current 2010 projected deficit is $1.6 trillion, which will lead to a tripling of our national debt from 2008 to 2020.

      Now when it comes to budgets proposed by presidents ...
      • If Obama had simply kept Bush's spending policies in place, federal deficits over the next eight years would be 60 percent lower. In 2018, we'd have a deficit of just $188 billion, instead of the projected $996 billion under Obama's budget.

      Your representatives in the House are the people who are creating these spending bills, voting on spending, and validating this kind theft. Don't know who is representing you? That's fine. Learn it now. You have 22 days to read up on this person and find out if they deserve to keep their job. Contact them, tell them you are not going to take it anymore.
