Come on...I didn't vote for Nobama but that's silly. He didn't exactly inherit a debt-free federal government.

I wonder where these tea partiers were from January 2003-January 2007 (when the GOP had the White House and both houses of Congress), or when Bush was cheerleading the Wall Street bailouts?

A) Obama BLASTED Bush for his deficits.
B) Obama is now proposing that we triple them.
C) Debt at that level cannot be sustained

Saying "But the GOP did_____" is not a viable defense. Obama ran on the campaign promise to balance the budget, not triple the debt. What Bush and Congress DID is now irrelevant simply because Obama said he'd fix it and he's not going to. In fact, he's not only NOT going to fix it, he's going to make it much, much worse.

Obama's proposed budget for the next fiscal year has a $1.88 TRILLION deficit!!

I'm not going merely to protest that, but ALL of the government spending in the last year or so. The bailout, the stimulus bill, the Fed pumping another TRILLION $$$$ into the economy, etc....

I blasted the bailout when it happened. I blasted the stimulus "spending pork" bill too.

I want fiscal responsibility by the government.

I agree with you and revefsreleets....Bush's fiscal irresponsibility doesn't excuse Obama's. I'm just saying this protest comes across as partisan hackery because there was no such protest against the GOP.

It would be a waste of time for me anyway because my Representative and both my Senators opposed all of this nonsense. And I can safely say the national leaders (Obama, Pelosi, Reid) don't care what I think.

Well I can't say the same about our senators and reps. "Senator" Specter is a traitor. He's a Dem in Rep. clothing. Farking jagoff.

If Bush and a Republican controlled Congress had passed a bill of that magnitude without ever even reading it, there wouldn't have just been a protest. It would have been a full on revolution.

But this last measure, the purging of the toxic assets, IS a necessity. It's the only real necessity. This is a MUST. They did this backwards though. This should have been the first measure, the one that sneaked through, then the public should have been outraged over the POS stimulus and spending bills.

Now people are pissed at the wrong thing...

Well we should have protested the Initial TARP bill but the "campaign" actually got in the way and people wouldn't accurately report what was in the TARP, like the fact there was ZERO oversite in its initial wording, hence the reason the banks didn't buy up the Toxic Assests the way the original 350Billion dollars was supposed to do. Or at least we were told would do. The housing market didn't get stablized, then came the "Stimulus" bill, totally seperate from the TARP, for another 800 Billion Dollars, then the new Budget, which is a totally NEW 1 Trillion Dollars.

Are you kididng me already?

then add on the second half of the Tarp for 350 Billion dollars...

and then the new proposals for the Environment, to tax Gas mileage or raise taxes on Energy, wtf are we supposed to do?

The key is, these aren't all the Same spending bill, these are seperate spending bills, seperate costs, that keep adding up together to over 3 trillion dollars in new spending...that's Federal Spending, which is really Tax Payers Dollars. They are paying for this spending by Raising taxes on everyone (Cigarette Tax wasn't on RICH people) They are borrowing on Future Tax Earnings which is where the "Generation Theft Act" came in. Its insane. It needs to be slowed down. Not just more spending on more spending.

The future tax earnings are based on us coming out of this recession very soon, which we won't be. It's like buying a really expensive house because you're just SURE that you are going to get a huge pay raise at work in a couple years. In effect, the government is doing the exact same thing all these nincompoops who bought houses they couldn't afford did...

It's a clusterf**k to be sure...
