Chicago PM Monday 17 September 2012
Voice of the People, Chicago Tribune
A letter [blame game] in the Monday 17 September Voice of the People says
"[George] Bush's ideas got us into this [economic] mess."
For the first 6 years of the George W Bush administration the federal
government ran an at the time unheard of average monthly federal deficit of
$20 billion. With the assistance of a Democrat congress they were able to raise
that to $35 billion in the last 24 months (nothing like getting late assistance
In the first 43 months of the Barack Obama administration the country had
an average monthly federal deficit of $120 billion - six times higher than 'Bush'.
Who got us into this 'mess'?
