    In before all the wankers who start claiming Obama caused the huge deficits in the first place, which is of course a total fiction.

      I agree. It was Harry Pelosi's fault.

        More like 30 years of stupid conservative policy enacted by both Rs and Ds.

          Yep. Never had a supermajority. Rarely even had majorities in both houses when a Republican was president.

          But everythin' still they fault.

              Read what I wrote again, and then try once more to demonstrate that you understand what I am saying.

                Remeber all the nonesense about how the sequester would destroy us? That's what the fed govt does. They want to make us think without them spending all of our money, taking care of us, we won't be able to survive.

                    No I get it. Even when they have no power to do anything, it's still their IDEAS that are the problem.

                    Conservativism is like the new International Jewry.

                      The sequestor cut $85 billion.
                      The deficit change is $410 billion.

                      As usual, you're not particularly in touch with reality.

                      If you weren't illiterate, you would have been able to comprehend this part in the OP:

                      Revenue jumped 13.3 percent to $2.77 trillion, reflecting a slightly better economy and higher tax rates. And government spending declined 2.4 percent to $3.45 trillion, in part because of across-the-board spending cuts that took effect in March.

                        I know in your little fantasy world there is a leftist party in the U.S., but there isn't. There's a right wing party, and an extreme right wing party.
