Debt's no longer a problem

October 28, 2013 

I watched our failure of a president make a fool of himself in a recent speech. It was lie after lie -- why the evil GOP shut down the government for political gain, ruining the economy, holding the country hostage, blackmailing the president.

Let's start with President Obama when he was in the Senate and why he voted against President Bush wanting the debt ceiling raised. We were only $3 trillion in debt then. Obama gave a passionate speech about selling our children's and their children's futures down the drain.

Now after six years of his presidency and control of Senate by Demo-crats we are $11 trillion more in debt and the debt ceiling is no problem.
