Original Post – July 2011……Updated January 7, 2011…….
Democrats were in control of the HOUSE, SENATE and WHITE HOUSE from January 2009 – January 2011.
January 2011 – present they OWN the SENATE and WHITE HOUSE. Seeing as they had a filibuster proof majority with the two independents until Scott Brown won Ted Kennedy’s seat, why on earth did they not pass the 2011 budget and the debt ceiling budget?
Better yet, it took the REPUBLICANS taking over the HOUSE to get the 2011 budget passed and as of today, it has been 985 days since the Democrats have passed a budget. Basically since Obama has taken office. Guess since they owned all three they felt they did not need to adhere to their LEGAL OBLIGATIONS of passing one?
As of January 7, 2011 …..the Democrats Senate has still NOT passed a budget……only the GOP HOUSE has managed to pass a budget and they did so for 2011 & 2012…….
I find it odd (sarcasm intended of course) how the mainstream media refuses to note that the DEMOCRATS own the Senate and White House; that some how the media making this whole debt debacle the Republicans “fault” is laughable at best, pathetically sad on the flip side!
Why aren’t those within the media pressing Obama and the Democrats on why they did not pass this bill when they controlled all three houses? Why aren’t those within the media pressing Obama and the Democrats as to why they have NOT PRODUCE A PHYSICAL BILL that has been scored by the CBO and passed the SENATE?
3 bills have been devised, scored by the CBO and passed the HOUSE and ALL THREE Obama yelled he would VETO and the Democrats yelled they would NOT vote on it before they even read it or debated it. In fact, they refused to even debate them.
If you refuse to honestly DEBATE and VOTE on the 3 Republican bills passed to the DEMOCRAT OWNED SENATE and your beloved Obama screams he will VETO them all; then at least come up with your own DANG PHYSICAL BILLS that YOU devise, CBO scores and pass the Democrat Controlled Senate!
PUT UP OR SHUT UP DEMOCRATS-where is your BILL?
June 22, 2010- Democrat state publicly they would not be passing the 2011 budget, yet the media does not question them and hold them accountable because why?
1. Democrats owned the House and Senate from January 2007 – January 2011
2. Democrats own the Senate White House from January 2009 – Present
3. Republicans own the House- Janaury 2011
4. Obama has effectively spent $5.2 TRILLION in 3 years and is demanding another $1.4 TRILLION to get him to 2013. This equates to Obama spending $6.6 TRILLION + OBAMACARE within 4 years.
5. Let’s break this down:
2011 Deficit = $15.2 TRILLION
Deficit when the Republicans took over Congress in 1995 for the First time since 1950: $4.973 TRILLION
Deficit in 2001 when the Republicans shared the Senate, owned the House + White HOUSE: $5.807 TRILLION
Deficit in 2004 when the Republicans own all three houses: $8.506 TRILLION
Deficit in 2007 when the Democrats own the SENATE + the HOUSE: $9.007 TRILLION
Deficit in 2011 when the DEMOCRATS own the SENATE + WHITE HOUSE & Republicans take the HOUSE: $15.2 Trillion
So let’s see:
DEMOCRATS start off with $4.973 TRILLION Prior to 1995 + $6.6 TRILLION from 2007-2011 = $11.573 TRILLION
$11.573 TRILLION – $15.6 TRILLION = $4.027 TRILLION and if you want ot stick 100% of that on the REPUBLICANS….go ahead……you do see the difference!
