I spent an unsustainable amount on my son's education. He is now an engineer with health care and along-term career. I spent thousands on house renovations. I had it appraised and the increased value was double my investments. I spent part of my retirement to retire my credit card and loan payments and my cash flow increased.

Is it spending or is it investment? Spending works, as long as you are willing to pay for it.

C. B. you are correct, that is how it works. That is how it worked in the past and how it will continue to work. It worked for me, and it will work for our government.

Sure, it works right up until you lose your job and then you lose your house because you can't afford to pay the mortgage. When you went to withdraw your savings, the bank stuck an IOU in your account.

It's going to be funny watching the demise of democrats when the debt comes crashing down on their heads.

Yeah, nothing funnier than watching poor people barely scraping by and deliberately making it harder for them.
No wonder you were a Romney man, you sociopathic imbecile.

You are probably support the candidate in which the poor increased in numbers in the double digits while he was in office. It seems that nothing he did was able to do a dang thing to help the less fortunate through federal spending.
