So will he push us over the 20 Trillion peak by the time he leaves office? Remember, he has to buy a lot of votes in the next 2.5 years.

"Obama signed the bills during a weekend golf vacation in Southern California" -- Didn't he just spend a couple of weeks in HI over Christmas? How much is this golf weekend costing taxpayers?

Barry kicks the can down the road for our kids to inherit. Let's start running our country like a middle class family would...don't spend more then you have.

Most people who have had a real job would ask "can I afford to do this".

Remember when Obama promised to cut the "unpatriotic" 10 trillion dollar deficit in half in his first term? When this disaster is finished, our deficit will be north of 20 trillion dollars and what do we have to show for it? 17 million unemployed. Labor participation at 30 year lows. More people receiving entitlements than ever before. Wow, what a complete failure this community activist has been. If you are not concerned with the direction this guy is taking America, you are clueless, unpatriotic, a Socialist or just plain stupid.

So will he push us over the 20 Trillion peak by the time he leaves office? ============================================ Ask the GOP controlled House that passed the bill to the Senate and the 6 GOP Senators that flipped to vote for it.

Iky, Obama's policies, Obama's results and here you are five plus years in blaming others for what Obama has done. This guy has got EVERYTHING he's asked for. There is no more blame. You voters and Obama own this. Nice try.

This guy has got EVERYTHING he's asked for. ================================================ Hilarious!!! Have you ever heard of the term "filibuster"? The GOP set the record of the most in the history of the US government!!!

Yes, I've heard filibuster and I've heard Obama, Biden, Pelosi, Reid, Clinton and the rest of the democrats talk about the importance of the filibuster, but that was when they were not in power and guess what? They have taken the filibuster away from America and changed our laws once again. Now, can you tell me what Obama has asked for and has not received? Take your time, Mr. Political Science Major
