Obama spends 3 trillion dollars, what do we have to show for it?

October 20, 2010

It took from 1776 to 1990 for our country to rack up $3 trillion in debt.  It took Barack Obama less than two years.

Our economy is in the tank.  People are out of work, and the president thinks if he just keeps spending money we don’t have, the problems will go away.

Well, they aren’t going away.  But they keep shoving this cock-and-bull story down our throats about how much worse it would be if they hadn’t spent all this nonexistent money.

Sure, I can pay for gas and groceries with a credit card.  I can take out a cash advance to pay some bills.  I’ve done it before.  And yeah, for a little while it makes things ok.  But it’s false sense of “ok.”  You still owe that money.  You haven’t made anything better.  You’ve just delayed the hurt.  Believe me, I know.

I wised up and realized if I can’t afford it with what’s in my bank account, I have to find a way to live without it.

Barack Obama seems nowhere near such a revelation.  He continues to spend money we don’t have, despite having no way to pay that debt down.  But it’s ok, because he’s creating jobs (or saving them, it’s unclear which) and just as soon as the economy rebounds we’ll be able to pay it all back.

The fantasy world our president lives in must be a special one indeed.
