Obama's 10 year plan calls for continuing deficits even assuming the economy rebounds. I am opposed to that aspect of his plans.

    there i fixed it for you. i guess your right ACORN will have to fill out applications for grants and there is no guarantee they will recieve the money. i am sure there are many other groups that obama worked for that will be trying to recieve grants for community organization! what ever! what was the deficit when bush left office and what is it now two months later? what will it be in two more months or by the end of the year? who was it that said liberalism is a disease?

    Deficit:


    It's hard to say who said "liberalism is a disease" first. Ann Coulter, brainless diva of the right, used that as the title for one of her books. Reagan is often associated with the phrase. But for now every person who is so far right that they have forgotten how to use the left side of their brain seems to have put the phrase on a coffee mug or bumper sticker. ACORN, by the way, has previously announced that they will not be seeking grants under the stimulus bill since they do not do the types of work covered by the program.

    With respect to the post-WWII growth of the deficit as a percentage of GDP, you can blame almost 100% of that on the deified Republican duopoly of Reagan and Bush Jr. There is no doubt that Obama could join that pantheon. I hope he does not and will criticize him if he does in the same manner that I have criticized Reagan and GWB.
