Wonder what you would find if you frisked the United States’ budget deficit for the fiscal year 2009?
Answer: You could buy a lot of stuff with $1.4 TRILLION!
Here is a nice, little informational video that almost makes you depressed. And in case you’re wondering, the previous record had been set in 2008 – thanks Bush.
But hey! Lets not hate on Mr. Bush too much now. After all, The Messiah (Barack Obama) was able to triple that for the fiscal year 2009! Yay! Like Rahm Emanuel said: Don’t waste a crisis. And I remember when liberals complained about Bush’s spending… What happened?
Don’t worry, because hopefully the atrocious spending will stop soon. Oh wait, I forgot the Obama administration estimates another $1.4 trillion for the fiscal year 2010 budget deficit. Great…
Side-Note: Very interesting little video. On the issue of setting government spending records: DUMB, DUMB, DUMB!
