Although mathematically wrong, if Republican propaganda logic claims of the Recovery Plan costing a million dollars a day since Jesus (about two thousand years ago), than what the Neocon Republican leadership did in the last eight years was a million dollars a day since 20,000 years ago just with the national debt ($10 Trillion or $200K per American). That’s about the last Ice Age.
The National Debt is nowhere near $10 trillion. Bush’s spending (with the 2nd term help of a Democrat majority’s ear-mark spend-a-thon and the lack of the cajones required to whip out the good ol’ veto pen) put us in red to about half a trillion.
Furthermore, the stimulus package from 2008 was voted for by the majority of Democrats and against by the majority of Republicans, though Bush did sign it.
“…on March 14, 2008, then Sen. Obama voted in favor of the 2009 budget which authorized $3.1 trillion in federal outlays along with a projected $400 billion deficit. The 51-44 vote that morning was strongly along party lines with only two Republicans saying “Yes.”
When the final conference report was presented to the House on June 5, not one Republican voted for it.
…the 2009 budget was almost exclusively approved by Democrats, with “Yeas” coming from current President then Sen. Obama, his current Vice President then Sen. Joe Biden, his current Chief of Staff then Rep. Rahm Emanuel, and his current Secretary of State then Sen. Hillary Clinton.”
Bush gets a good amount of credit for his deficit spending, but he and his house-mates hardly represent the values of the majority of Republicans (with their social program spend-fest), and even so, Bush himself doesn’t get credit for more than a sixth (a liberal estimate) of our current deficit spending.
