Truth be told there are only 4 countries in the world that aren't in debt, none being strongly developed economies. The deficit in the US keeps rising due to all of the unnecessary money spent on the military and other services. Their money is not budgeted well. The debt will continue to rise until Obama does something about it, along with a ban on guns.

lol,how would banning guns help the economy,and obama just made it worse
Report as
The military is necessary. The $ spent on the "hidden" agendas and the $ given away to others is what is a huge problem. And Obama is not even wanting to fix the problem. He is a POOR leader - and I use leader not because he is one but because he ISN'T one

lmao - yeah I know. BUT someone sends the $ to the checking accounts.. We need to find out who/where and get the ACH stopped ...
Report as
Ban on guns? Yeah that turned out well for Germany, China, Cuba etc. Guns are the only thing that ensures we keep our rights. That is why it's the only amendment that says "shall not be infringed".
Report as
Guns have nothing to do with our debt, uncontrolled spending, no real significant cuts in spending. Too much subsidizing, and excessive foreign aid are just to name a few.
We need serious cuts in spending and taxes have to be increased across the board to realistically turn things around.
The Printing press has to stop! We cannot buy our way out, it's a spending spree that has spun out of control!
Report as
If they ban guns they might as well just start loadin us in the box cars
Report as
BUT if they think people are just gonna calmly hand over there guns they have another thing commin

Then we recall their debt, then some other country calls on another debt, then that country recalls a couple of other countries on their debt, and in the end we have a big economic mess where everyone loses. GG.

Bombs and jet helicopters are not cheap . Welfare and support for other police or rebels the gov supports in other country's . The war on drugs on our own people not cheap. Comes down to politicians serving their own interest not the people's

No responsibility on Obamas behalf?
You still want to play the blame game and its 4 plus years later, your really oblivious to what has and hasn't been done since Bush left office! Get educated so you don't look foolish with posts that are blatantly ignorant!
Report as
I'm not one sided, Dem. or Rep. I'm an independent and BOTH parties share the responsibility of where we are today! I didn't mean to be to harsh but we are not in grade school playing the blame gam, it's time for big boy pants and take responsibility for their actions!
Report as
its time to stop blaming bush,your boy has been in office too long for that
Report as
Woah guys, I'm so sorry! I was just joking! I'm sorry I caused an argument.

Because the government spent 5.2 million dollars to study goldfish and continues "wasting" money on other non-sensical studies and programs.

It happens when you have two parties that have uncontrolled spending. They spend to get reelected with no worry about the outcome.
