No I'm not taking about breaking a baseball record! But the GOP have managed to hit this one out of the park...
President Bu$h and his current Administration (yes that would include Kline who votes over 90% of the time with Bu$hCo!) have now borrowed more money from foreign governments and banks than the previous 42 U.S. presidents combined.
According to the U.S. Treasury Department, throughout the first 224 years of our nation's history, 42 U.S. presidents borrowed a combined $1.01 trillion from foreign governments and financial. In the past four years alone, the Bu$h Administration(with Kline's fullest support!) has borrowed a staggering $1.05 trillion. More here and here
So next time someone tells you they are conservative like John Kline and GW Bu$h...ask them to define the word. Apparently GOP conservatives like Kline aren't against borrowing, don't promote 'pay as you go' as being responsible and have no problem being in debt for decades (generations!) to come. Or at least that's the policies they have promoted.
Kline and Bu$h have changed the meaning of the word...it now means bankrupt...as in money, moral leadership and community values. I began this post by saying the GOP managed to hit this out of the park, but it was fouled the whole way.
