Let’s see… George W. Bush was the only president in history to start a war, two wars in fact, while lowering taxes. The tax cuts for corporations and the wealthiest have reduced the government’s income by some $2.5 Trillion. The wars have spent another $3 Trillion and an estimated $1.5 Trillion will be needed for assorted hardware replacement, care of our veterans and the training of replacements for those who will leave the armed services as soon as they are allowed to do so. Congressman Boehner had no qualms about adding that $7 Trillion to the national debt.
Were Boehner even marginally honest with the public, he would admit that were it not for his leadership in pushing through the tax cuts for the rich, and were it not for all the congress’ (including Hillary Clinton) lazy-minded rubber stamp of Dubya’s wars, the current debt would be only $6.8 Trillion, well below the ceiling of $14.3 Trillion.
