Add It Up…The Conservative Calamity of the 2000s

The Great Recession is a result of Republican Party Rule…

George W. Bush is President (2001-2008)

The Republicans hold a majority in both the Senate and the House (2001-2006)

What happened?

* We, the People, are stuck cleaning up the messes (plural) left by the Republicans.

–approximately $1 Trillion in lost revenue due to Bush Tax Cuts

–$700 billion-plus on an illegitimate war in Iraq that cost the lives of 4,000-plus of our soldiers, the lives of 50,000-plus of innocent Iraqi civilians, and mostly benefited politically connected military contractors like Dick Cheney’s Halliburton (no-bid contracts in Iraq with taxpayers’ money)

–$700 billion Bush/ Paulson bailout of Wall Street banks in 2008

Add it up and you’re looking at the majority of our budget deficit; all of those messes were caused by Conservatism.

It is a perversion of the truth to omit the Conservative Calamity of the 2000s, and then point the finger at Obama who is trying to clean up the messes caused by Conservatives.
