The majority of Americans have spoken: "give me more free stuff"! Therefore, tax increases notwithstanding, the deficit will increase until.......?

Let's get some money for the Muslim Brotherhood before we run out. Pakistan could use some too.

General Motors and Chrysler need to pay back their money and the side money for the Unions and then maybe we wouldn't be that far in debt. The Banks and Wall Street still have large bonuses they are giving to people that have been abusing the normal earn and learn process. Thems that have don't necessarily pay attention to how the country is moving with Government Regulations. Those government regulations basically implied that Banks and Loan companies give loans to everyone no matter what the cost to the country.

Banks, Insurance Companies, Loan Companies have as a basic process how the economy is going in their own system. They just thought the government was going to take care of them. The student loans are being mandated the same from the Government who mandated this change.

Government doesn't produce for us. They take and don't give back.

Budgets have to be made and believe it or not, this President hasn't produced a budget in his time. Budget means take in and take out. He knows how to take out but can't deal with the taking in. Congress takes and gives but no budget.

And we voted "Forward" for 4 more years of this with a president that has absolutely no idea how to approach the issues. He does throw out threats. If you want the job done right, you must hire the person with the right background and experience. None of which our president has.
