the US economy). Barney blocked it and called it a “Chicken Little Philosophy” (and the sky did fall!)
And who took the THIRD highest pay-off from Fannie Mae AND Freddie Mac?
OBAMA
And who fought against reform of Fannie and Freddie?
OBAMA and the Democrat Congress, especially BARNEY!!!!

So when someone tries to blame Bush… REMEMBER JANUARY 3rd, 2007…. THE DAY THE DEMOCRATS TOOK OVER!”
Bush may have been in the car but the Democrats were in charge of the gas pedal and steering wheel they were driving
the economy into the ditch.
Budgets do not come from the White House.. They come from Congress and the party that controlled Congress since
January 2007 is the Democratic Party.

Furthermore, the Democrats controlled the budget process for 2008 & 2009 as well as 2010 & 2011.

In that first year, they had to contend with George Bush, which caused them to compromise on spending, when Bush
somewhat belatedly got tough on spending increases.

For 2009 though, Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid bypassed George Bush entirely, passing continuing resolutions to keep
government running until Barack Obama could take office. At that time, they passed a massive omnibus spending bill to
complete the 2009 budget.

And where was Barack Obama during this time? He was a member of that very Congress that passed all of these
massive spending bills, and he signed the omnibus bill as President to complete 2009. Let’s remember what the deficits
looked like during that period:  If the Democrats inherited any deficit, it was the 2007 deficit, the last of the
Republican budgets. That deficit was the lowest in five years, and the fourth straight decline in deficit spending. After that, Democrats in Congress took
control of spending, and that includes Barack Obama, who voted for the budgets.

If Obama inherited anything, he inherited it from himself. In a nutshell, what Obama is saying is “I inherited a deficit that
I voted for, and then I voted to expand that deficit four-fold since January 20th.” There is no way this will be widely publicized, unless each of us sends it on!
“The problems we face today exist because the people who WORK for a living are OUTNUMBERED by those who
VOTE for a living.”
