Austan Goolsbee is the former Chief White House Economic Adviser for President Obama. Last week Goolsbee pelted Sean Hannity with the latest Democrat Party talking point, that Obama is a fiscal conservative because he cut the deficit in half!
In FY2007, the last year Republicans had total fiscal control the yearly deficit was 188 billion and Democrats to this day go on and on as to what big spenders Republicans were under Bush.
Democrats take over the Congress and in FY2008 the yearly deficit goes to 500 billion.
Obama is elected and FY2009 through 2013 the YEARLY deficits are 1200 – 1400 billion per year.
This year the yearly deficit is projected to be just over 680 billion.
“”OMG LOOK WE CUT THE DEFICIT IN HALF!! See how conservative we are!””
This is the kind of twisted logic spoiled children use to get their way. We don’t tolerate it from them, so don’t tolerate it from those in power.
BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE!
How corrupt is the Florida State GOP?
Aside from the fact that the Florida Republican leadership worked to get Allen West out of office in spite of the record amount of money he raised for them, read below via Jennifer Gratz:
Today the Florida Senate rules committee takes up legislation that would force breweries to sell our beer to a distributor, let the distributor mark it up and then sell it back to us before we could sell it in our tasting rooms. Adding insult to injury, the beer would never have to leave the brewery, the distributor wouldn’t have to actually distribute. Talk about getting paid for nothing. What a racket. Little faith in our government these days.
