It would be laughable if it were not so serious. I am speaking about the current administration and its dupes that are all over the news decrying the GOP’s proposed budget. They are telling anyone who will listen that this budget does not do enough to help the middle class in America.

All one has to do is look at the last six years to see what these people have done to, not for the middle class. This is an 11 percent to 17 percent unemployment rate, not 5.7 percent. When all of the people who have quit looking, and are under-employed are counted the posted the 5.7 percent rate is a joke. It is as credible as “if you like your plan you can keep your plan.”

Since Obama has been in office we have more people on food stamps than are in the country of Spain, 47-plus million. The labor participation rate, meaning the number of people working, is 63.2 percent, the lowest rate since 1978.

But here is the big one, the national debt has doubled under this administration. They have created more debt than all of the other administrations since the inception of this country.

In a campaign speech Obama called George Bush “unpatriotic” for adding $4 trillion to the deficit in eight years. So what does one call Obama for adding $9 trillion in six years?

Have you ever heard the saying about “people in glass houses”? Obama’s is paper thin.
