Republican Convention will feature a debt clock

Americans will be reminded of the Obama administration’s rampant borrowing by a debt clock that will be prominently displayed at the Tampa Bay Time Forum during the Republican National Convention this week.

Party Chairman Reince Priebus will activate the mounted clock at 2PM Monday when the convention convenes.

    Not a dime can be added to our national debt without the consent of the Congress. The House of Representative has been controlled by the Republicans for the last two years. The Republican party deserves much of the blame for adding trillions of dollars to our national debt.

    The DUMBOCRATS controlled Congress for two years adding the first trillions. The Republicans came in to the House in 2010 and tried to cut the spending. Of course that went nowhere in the Senate and Obummer would have vetoed it anyway.

    Actually since the mid-term elections of 2010 the Republicans have votes to move on the debt but have chosen not to. They will not move on any issue that may reflect positively on President Obama. They have used increasing the debt ceiling votes as misrepresentations of adding additional debt.
    For strictly political gain they voted against spending bills, that they co- sponsored originally, that would have reduced the future spending and saved 38 Billion dollars of new debt.
    The Young Guns of the Tea Party Republicans have since dictated the no compromise stance that they now try and parlay into the do-nothing, stagnant, show tune attacks on the President.
    Will the debt clock explode and shoot off fireworks when it hits the 15 Trillion number that is projected to be added to the debt just from the un-funded liabilities of Bush Medicare Prescription Drug Reform- the 15 Trillion of future debt Paul Ryan ignored and voted the Party dictated line?
    The show sounds more and more like a Vegas dance line with more than a little slight of hand and hoped for magic tricks.

    Report from Office of Inspector General Department of Agriculture and Consumer Affairs issued July 2012. Effects of limited stimulus funds that Republican opposition missed blocking.

    The Demoncrats have been in control of the Senate since 2006–please provide links to their, and Milhous’s budgets so we can have a proper discussion??? We will be waiting…………………………………thanks

    Brian that was done several days ago with the link to 6 Budget proposals which you did not look at once you saw the name Bill Moyers attached to the link. The link
    repeated here will give you access to the bi-partisan budget proposals out in public untainted by any partisan tampering on either side.

    The Republican House—-in response to it’s Constitutional duties presented and PASSED a budget—-where is the current Senate/Potus budgets—that, under their Constitutional duties they must present and pass through Congress—i repeat, where is the ACTUAL budget required by the Constitution—a proposal is NOT a passed budget—where is their budget or WHY are they ignoring their Constitutional duties.
    You can bloviate all you want–i will not argue a false premise. The Senate and Milhous have reneged on their elected duties—THAT IS THE ISSUE.

  8. brian said at 1:13 pm on August 27th, 2012:

    They can post my budget there on moyers site since it got the exact same number of votes in Congress as Milhous’s—-ZERO.

  9. Pildrim said at 2:41 pm on August 27th, 2012:

    The Senate and House are comprised of both Republicans and Democrats who are spending our tax dollars with or without a budget — if there is any fault it is shared equally. If I recall corrrectly, Senator Mitch McConnell made it very clear early on that the Republican priority in the Senate was not the budget; the priority was preventing President Obama’s re-election at any co$t. And, Romney and Ryan have made it clear, if elected, that they will add to the taxpayer burden by increasing defence spending.

    Who cares. More money is wasted on a local level paying benefits for teachers, police and public works than anything else and we can’t even tackle our own little municipal budgets, yet Joe K is going to sit here pontificating how to solve the federal budget, or just blaming other people and the dolt hasn’t a clue. Repeat more of the same fraudulent talking points Joe, good job, it gets us further to nowhere!

    Listening to the Republicans complain about the size of the national debt is like listening to Charles Manson complain about crime rates.
