Deeper and Deeper.....

Here is just one more nail in the coffin of our childrens children. While Bill Clinton eliminated National Debt and left the country with a surplus (which George Bush gave away in the form of a $300.00 check to everyone in the country), George Bush is scrambling to break every record of National Debt! (Keep in mind China holds $4,000,000,000,000.00 of that Debt) Here is your republican senate hard at work....

MAR. 16 11:51 A.M. ET The Senate voted Thursday to allow the national debt to swell to nearly $9 trillion, preventing a first-ever default on U.S. Treasury notes.
The bill passed by a 52-48 vote. The increase to $9 trillion represents about $30,000 for every man, woman and child in the United States. The bill now goes to President Bush for his signature.
The measure allows the government to pay for the war in Iraq and finance Medicare and other big federal programs without raising taxes. It passed hours before the House was expected to approve another $91 billion to fund the war in Iraq and provide more aid to hurricane victims.
