Video: WATCH Crazy Senator Claim Obama “Cut The Deficit In Half”





Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) claimed on Friday that the federal budget deficit has “been cut in half” under Obama.

Budget figures provided by the White House show that the deficit nearly tripled from 2008 to 2009, when Obama took office, and has remained above $1 trillion since then, though 2013 projections are slightly lower.

The country has seen higher budget deficits during every year of Obama’s presidency than it did during any of his predecessor’s eight years in office.

  1. has to be a liar, no one is that stupid

  2. Crazy? it's you teabillies who are crazy, if you believe the lies on this site. The federal deficit on the day President Obama took office was $1.4 trillion. Currently, it is $973 billion. projected: FY 2014*: $744 billion, FY 2015*: $577 billion. You could look this up for yourselves.

    • Obozo added more to the national debt than all the presidents for George Washington to Bush 2 COMBINED. That IS the fact.

    • Oh, so people will only believe "teabillies" are crazy if they believe the so called lies on this site? So, if they don't believe the articles on this site, then "teabillies" aren't crazy, eh? Yeah. You might want to fix the ordering of your sentence. We seem to have only your word to go on with that statement, by the way. You care to offer some proof of that? You need to cover how and why they're crazy. Come on, you're a big boy now. Please, show me where you got those magical figures. Will Obama leave money under my pillow if I leave a tooth?

        Don't fret it Fennec. Just check the CBO.
        As they wrote in their report: "Federal debt held by the public will reach 73 percent of GDP by the end of this fiscal year—the highest level since 1950 and about twice the share that it measured at the end of 2007, before the financial crisis and recent recession."

        Brain dead liberal obots have to try something….

      "An Update to the Budget and Economic Outlook: Fiscal Years 2012 to 2022: For fiscal year 2012 (which ends on September 30), the federal budget deficit will total $1.1 trillion, CBO estimates, marking the fourth year in a row with a deficit of more than $1 trillion. That projection is down slightly from the $1.2 trillion deficit that CBO projected in March. At 7.3 percent of gross domestic product (GDP), this year’s deficit will be three-quarters as large as the deficit in 2009 when measured relative to the size of the economy. Federal debt held by the public will reach 73 percent of GDP by the end of this fiscal year—the highest level since 1950 and about twice the share that it measured at the end of 2007, before the financial crisis and recent recession." http://www.cbo.gov/publication/43539

      "Wharton Experts: Federal Deficit to Return Even Larger: The recent drop in the federal deficit is only temporary. The deficit will come roaring back larger than ever, according to experts at Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania." http://www.moneynews.com/Economy/Wharton-deficit-

      "Federal deficit shrinking, but long-term outlook dim: But even with declining deficits, the nation’s debt keeps piling up, leaving lawmakers with no easy choices to fix the poor long-term fiscal outlook says the CBO. The public debt is on a troubled trajectory – expected to be equal to 100% of the economy’s annual output, or gross domestic product, by 2038. “The unsustainable nature of the federal government’s current tax and spending policies presents lawmakers and the public with difficult choices,” the office said in its report." http://www.latimes.com/nation/politics/politicsno

      Ok. I looked it up. The federal deficit is unsustainable and about to explode. We are out of the benefits the Bush tax breaks gave us and now squarely into obama's policies. We see what that has done.

      Not even the Congressional Budget Office agrees with you.

    See the trouble with Boxhead is that her mother told her when she was a young girl not to play with herself because someday it would make her stupid well the day has come.We should have seen it coming the day Boxhead told the General not to call her maam but call her Senator Shithead.

  4. IN 2014 the deficit is estimated to be 744 billion ,taking the national debt way past 17 TRILLION. Obama has added 9 trillion to the national debt of 8 trillion when he took office. He has added more to the National debt than all combined Presidents before him

  5. The world is full of idiots…she could vye for queen.

  6. Has she been living in some alternate reality for the past four and a half years? Look again, Senator. Republicans did not control congress when the economic crisis began. It was in fact, Democrats that denied there was even a problem at all. I would know. I wasn't born yesterday. It was a topic of lengthy discussion at the time. Not exactly something I'll easily forget any time soon.
    There's that perpetuated phrase again, "Holding this country hostage". I know Obama said it first and has since been the programmed chant Democrats want to throw around in order to shirk responsibility for refusing to pass a budget…again. But, where have I heard it used before? Oh yeah. When Obama wanted to raise the debt ceiling the first time. Speaking of which, if he cut the deficit in half, why did he need to raise our debt ceiling twice before? What records has she been looking at? A slip of paper in her pocket she wrote up herself just before she made her statement?
    Where's she going with that look, anyway? Is she looking for a role as the next Bond villain?

    This Obitche’s brain has been cut in half. Why are democratic women so buttfuck ugly and ignant? Daa been hangin round other ignants like Al Sharpton say.
    The budget deficit is projected to be $972.9 billion for fiscal year 2013 – the First time since fiscal year 2008 the budget deficit has been under $1 trillion. Current debt is $16750 billion. The estimated population of the United States is 316,769,099, so each citizen's share of this debt is $52,876.96. The National Debt has continued to increase an average of
    $1.86 billion per day since September 30, 2012!
    We will see in the next 2 weeks how easy it is to live without the Fed and, YES PELOOSER, THAT PROVES THERE ARE THINGS THAT CAN BE CUT! 3/4 OF THE EPA ARE NONESSENTIAL!
    If the media gets involved in complaining about specific funding like the WWII monument then piece meal the funding, THAT WILL SHUT THE MEDIA UP!
    But now instead of gates around the monument, NGR be puttin sandbags, what a FUP! WWII veterans have seen more than their fair share of metal wire, sandbags, and barricades. They honorably tore down those walls and protected all of our freedoms, AND THIS IS HOW NGR RESPECTS THEM!
    Park rangers were asked about placing sandbags and wire ties on the barricades, they refused to comment, telling us to call their office. They were asked point blank, is the office open to call, they said duh!
    THIS BRINGS UP ANOTHER POINT, REMEMBER ALL THOSE ITEMS THAT NGR CLOSED DUE TO SEQUESTER, LIKE WHITE HOUSE TOURS, FUND ALL OF THAT, BECAUSE I WOULD LOVE TO TAKE A BULLSHIT IN FRONT OF OBULLSHITER’S OVAL OFFICE!!!

    • fedupwidit says:

      I know how to cut most of the deficit, refuse to pay congresses salaries, make those congressmen and women, make good on all the checks they have bounced at the house bank, return all their kickbacks and perks they have received from their special interest constituents and build houses for the homeless, make them give up their Cadillac health care plans and go on Obama-care. That's a good start.

      • MuslimLuvChrist says:

        They are considered "essential positions", dingle berries, whereas EPA is considered 90% nonessential!!!
