Lots of people would have you believe that Obama has created a record-breaking budget deficit, and that he is also, all by his little lonesome,  responsible for the enormous national debt. Neither is true. Part of the reason so many people believe these lies stems from a lack of understanding of what the Hell they are talking about.

The deficit is an annual number based on the budget passed by Congress and signed by the President. The debt is a total number that spans years, perhaps decades of previous Administrations and Congresses. Got it? 

Here are the actual numbers: http://www.usgovernmentspending.com/federal_deficit_chart.html (This page shows budget defecits. You can click the “Debt” to see that information.)

And the actual numbers show that Obama is CUTTING THE BUDGET DEFICIT, AND SLOWING THE RATE OF INCREASE IN THE NATIONAL DEBT. It matters not one bucket of warm spit what crap you have heard from Rush Limbaugh, Fox “News” or your “representatives”, much less the lazy-arsed hacks that pass for “reporters” these days.

The Debt is not the Deficit. The first is going up, and  the second is going down. Both suck, but the Congress and the President are slowly dealing with them both. Now that you know the facts, quitcherbitchin. And tell your friends the truth, because they sure as Hell won’t hear it from the media or Congress.
