Of course it is true.

The money that the government spends is taken out of the economy, and then put back in with all the waste and bureaucracy in place so we lose a large percentage.

This is robbing from peter to pay paul and losing 40% on the way!
How is it taken out of the economy?
The economy is a single pie, you just cut it up different.

If your government is borrowing money to run all its wasteful programs there is nothing left for honest hardworking businesses to exand and develop.

If people want to invest in businesses, they can. No one is forced to buy treasuries.

Of course if people really stopped buying treasuries the economy would collapse.

And the huge expansion of government Obama has created is sucking the life out of the free market forces of the economy.

What huge expansion?

Total government employment is down since Obama took office and the deficit has shrunk.

Sorry, I don't rely on government spending to prop up the economy.   





The "Socialism Experiment" thread might need it's own "Dumbest MikeT comment" poll in a few days.
he just added this gem:

Is there any reason to proceed?   You've already admitted that the deficit isn't funded by treasury notes after implying that it was.    Revenue is revenue.   There's really not much else to say.

Holy **** balls, add another:

Just that if the government was selling enough treasury bonds, there wouldn't be a deficit.

Treasury notes aren't funding the deficit, 

By definition, nothing funds a deficit.

Swamp claims to respond to everything, but didn't respond about his BS claim that the "guns and religion" wasn't covered by the media.

Didn't want to admit he was wrong again, shocking.

I wasnt wrong. It is a little hard to actually document how it was covered.

I can guarantee it was never talked about on SNL.

Except on Fox News there was no mass coverage of it.

Hillary used it and McCain later used it in speechs, but it wasnt pumped up. It was just another topic.

It was far worse than the 47% comment, but it wasnt labeled as as a game changing gaffe.

When you say the media ignored it, you're dead wrong. It dominated news coverage.

This happened 4 1/2 years ago. Just because you can't remember ****, doesn't mean it didn't happen.

I didnt mean ignore in a literal sense, I meant that for the most part it was ignored. And I pointed that out in my follow up.

And just because you are an Obama apologist does not mean you get to rewrite history to fit your Obama narrative.

Woody Allen's Love and Death was on the other night. If I may paraphrase:


Bis: That's swamp. He was from my village. He was the village idiot.

Me: Yeah, what did you do, place?




RIP swampy
