PostHeaderIcon How can people Blame one party or the other for our credit downgrade?

When DIRECT quotes from standard and poors blames ALL of washington???

The downgrade reflects our opinion that the fiscal consolidation plan that Congress and the Administration recently agreed to falls short of what, in our view, would be necessary to stabilize the government’s medium-term debt dynamics.
As long as politicians keep the US population fighting along party lines,they know the can continue to get away with the BS they have always pulled…

Greatest slight of hand distraction trick I have ever seen…

“Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them. Have you ever wondered why, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, we have deficits? Have you ever wondered why, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, we have inflation and high taxes?”

Place the blame squarely on 545 people: “One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one president and nine Supreme Court justices – 545 human beings out of the 235 million – are directly, legally, morally and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.”

Whats your opinion?

    My opinion? Your post is spot on.

    I think most American’s realize this.

    Because since Obama has taken office, we have seen our spending deficit quadruple from $400 billion to over $1.5 trillion per year, and over $5 trillion in added debt. These are facts that democrats, liberals, and progressives simply cannot deny. They can try to shift blame onto republicans (who have their own sins to account for) but this rests squarely on the shoulders of the Obama Administration.

    Barry Obama is the one who took everything into the news media and demanded unlimited spending moneys to further his failed policy’s,,,,,Dr

    which party wanted a “balanced budget” by loading it with cuts and no tax rise for the top 10%!

  • Mike W says:

    It’s called unrealistic party loyalty. This whole blame the other party for our woes business is getting a little old. Both of them have a hand in it.

  • Priestess Shizuka says:

    You are 100% correct.

  • scooterpoop says:

    The entire problem was caused by democrats and spending over the last few years.

    Blaming Bush or the Tea Party is stupid. The entire spending problem was escalated dramatically under Obama in 2009. Never in our history have we had trillion dollar debts every year.

    All the congress can take some blame, but the republicans need to accept more blame, which they won’t. The problem is the gap between government receipts and expenditure.
    Since 2000, the republicans have been spending like drunken sailors on unnecessary extremely expensive wars which were waged on lies. Also, they have been indulging in corporate and high middle and upper class welfare, while also reducing taxes. The gap has been ever widening. Then there was the GFC, which was bought about by lax government oversight of the financial sector. This laxness was also a republican initiative to reduce government intervention in the private sector. The GFC forced expenditure to go up to allow stimulus of the economy, plus with the GFC downturn there was an accompanying reduction in government tax receipts and debt ballooned.
    Now taxes need to go up and expenditure down. Expenditure has been reduced in the debt deal, but the republicans won’t allow taxes to increase to also reduce the debt to a more acceptable level.
    If expenditure were to be reduced by the amounts the republicans wish, which is the amount that is required to keep the AAA rating, the whole economy would totally stall and the rating would fall anyway.

    Democrats and Republicans are the same. Behind close doors Dems and Reps are always in agreement. To the rest of the world, they act like they are against each other. This creates the illusion there are two sides of ever issue. In reality, they are the same thing.

    The Central Government, run by bureaucratic servants called Democrats and Republicans, know that there is a 11% approval rate of the government by the US citizens. This is unacceptable to the Dems and Reps. They need away to show there power. So creating a fear atmosphere, will get the citizens attention. This will also let them portray they are doing something for the citizens that cannot be done without the government. I’t is a forced recognition of power in all its tyranny.

    One of the rules of war when facing a stronger enemy is to divide and conquer, rather then to attack your enemies force as a whole. Knowing that citizens and there constitutional freedoms/rights are a thee governments greatest enemy, creating a diversionary tactic such as Republican and Democrat would divide the governments enemies “citizens + constitutional freedoms/rights” Once divided, the enemy is far easier to conquer. In this case, when we are divided, the Central Government can take away freedoms/rights, and implement tyrannous laws a lot easier than if we were united.

    Vote for ANYONE else besides Democrats or Republicans. I’t can be anyone ranging from a third party candidate to Mickey Mouse. Just don’t vote for Democrats or Republicans. They were bought and paid for a long time ago by bureaucrats. When Dems or Reps are elected, they serve the interests of transnational corporations that paid for them to get elected, not the citizens. I’t is the greatest acting out of a “good cop bad cop” scenario in history. Just remember. The Tea Party is the Republican Party.

    “I’f your a multi-billion dollar transnational corporation and you pay for, 1 President + 435 Congressmen + 100 Senators + 9 Supreme Court Justices, then you have total power over 350,000,000+ citizens and all there resources.”
