Although I have no problem with Obama's current spending and actually wish he were spending more, that has absolutely nothing to do with my post. You falsely compared fixed, recurring costs with individual year budget deficits and I corrected you.Originally posted by: newnameman
You're such a hack. Obama can spend as much as he wants as long as its not a "fixed cost"?Originally posted by: eskimospy
Don't be an idiot. The costs of medicare part D are largely fixed, future budget deficits are not. That's why when you sign a contract with the phone company to pay a $50 phone bill every month you can safely plan ahead that it will cost you $600 a year, but when you go out and spend $1000 on a refrigerator you wouldn't plan on spending $365,000 a year on fridges.
