    Discretionary Spending Reaches Record Levels Under Socialist George W. Bush!

    "Discretionary spending -- meaning spending that is subject to annual legislative appropriations, as opposed to spending for entitlement programs such as Social Security and Medicare -- actually grew only 5.6% in Clinton 's last budget year (fiscal year 2001, which began October 1, 2000 ).

    Since then discretionary spending has not "steadily declined" as the President said, but has gone up. In fact, the growth has been much faster than under Clinton . In the first year for which President Bush signed the spending bills discretionary spending growth soared to 13.1%, and annual growth remained in double digits through the current fiscal year."

    The Republican sycophant and shill, Rebar, will neglect to realize that 2.56 trillion is the largest annual budget of any government in human history. Considerably more than Slick Willy and any other Democrat President in history ever spent in a single year.

    Tax cuts which I am all for, are actually fiscally irresponsible, if there is not a corresponding cut in federal spending.

    Where's the smaller government the Republicans have been giving lip service to for so many years? Big government continues to expand rapidly, with Republicans completely in charge in Washington.

    There's nobody to blame but the Republicans. Rebar will continue to blather loudly about Klinton and the Democrats, but they're fiscal conservatives compared to the socialist Republicans running the federal government right now.

    While your message is correct hifi, the tone and verbage is not really of the caliber that is fitting of The High Road. :scrutiny:

    Ok, I promise I'll never vote for George W. Bush ever again.

    You mean, there's a point to this besides Bush-bashing?

    Mind sharing that with the rest of us dullards?

    If I can bash a Bushbot over the head with the truth, what does that say about their position?

    ummm... besides the personal attack, I don't see the meaning of that sentence.

    That wouldn't surprise me. Even though this is the Legal and Political forum. And federal government socialism is definately a civil rights issue, this is an anti-Republican socialism thread, so begone!

    Bush sucks. Kerry sucks. They both suck. If they had a sucking contest they'd drain the Mississippi river and half the Gulf of Mexico.

    Do we really need to argue about suckage levels?

    Well this looks like a blatant misuse of the forum to me. Closed.
