Ron Kind: and about how much too much? $300 billion to $400 billion dollars' worth. but here we had a couple of good years where we made some money. there was a republican congress and bill clinton and the congre to spend much money, we actually saved some money for a couple of years. these years in here are the eight years of bush and bush is

Ron Kind

Ron Kind: that's the level of spending in 2009 and, guess what, we're not done with 2009 yet. so this shows we've taken this approach that we're not going to spend as much money, you can say spth bush spent too much

Ron Kind

3:07:11 to 3:07:26( Edit History Discussion )

Ron Kind: money, i think he did, but it's nowhere near what we're seeing. this spending pattern seems to be in a great contradiction with the statement that says we cannot simply spend we please and defer the consequences.
