Didn't you read it? What should I expect from someone who thinks there never was a budget surplus, therefore it's ok for Bush to have disposed of it.

So, you admit you don't know the ifs, ands or buts. Even with my little salary, it would be difficult for me to assume a surplus or deficit in 5 years. Hell, I don't even know if I'll be able to pay my house payment in 5 years. BUT, if I assume the same increases in salary, tax cuts, etc., then I could say I will. But the Federal Government is BILLIONS of times larger than my household budget. So how can ANYONE responsibly say there will be a deficit/surplus in 5, 10 or 15 years based on assumptive, bullshit numbers that everybody knows doesn't mean anything nor has ever in the history of the U.S. budgets meant anything? They can only say 'Based on the previous revenues, present numbers and the assumption that revenues will increase xxx amount of dollars every year as they have the last 3, 4 or 5 years, then there will be a budget surplus'. Everyone with half the economic sense of a third grader knows that we can't possibly factor in every single event that will impact a budget in the future. There could be another terrorist attack, a couple of category 5 hurricanes or a major earthquake that would eat up any so called surpluses.

Congressional spending isn't a party problem. It's a cultural problem. So long as congress spends like privelaged children, there will never be a balanced budget. It's impossible to balance a budget when more is spent than is taken in, no matter how you monkey with the figures.

He signed the budget bill because he had no line-item veto and to veto it would have shut the government down completely--and everyone knows how much we like that. It has gotten more than one President fired! President Bush has never submitted a budget that wasn't balanced. The budget-busting was always done by Congress.

Did you miss the part about why the budget would be balanced by 2012? Because of President Bush's tax cuts resulting in substantial increases in federal tax receipts! How 'bout them apples?

I missed the part about less money in equals more, yes, anyone with more than a bird's brain would miss that. Bush submitted this "enormous" budget, why do you not hold him responsible? This budget probably doesn't include the military part for the occupation AGAIN...and you keep trying to blame the Democrats. No wonder this fiscal stuff is out of control, the lunatics are running the asylum.

Maybe you missed the part about the president submitting the budgets for the last 7 years now, with all of them being passed by the Republican congress? Take a look at this...
