Republicans want you to believe that debt & deficit are same thing

To The Dally Sun,
The DEBT and the DEFICIT are two different animals. Republicans are waging a relentless campaign to convince millions of Americans that the deficit has increased. The truth is quite the opposite. In point of fact it has gone down in record numbers.
According to a recent Bloomberg Poll, millions "of Americans are totally clueless about the status of the deficit under President Obama."
The deficit is the difference between what the federal government spends and what it takes in by taxes and other revenue each year. Sadly, 73 percent of Americans actually believe that the deficit has grown under President Obama, although it has actually gone down more than a trillion dollars.
The GOP, FOX News and conservative talk radio have for the most part been very successful in convincing people that the debt and the deficit are the same and are therefore interchangeable even though this is a total falsehood.
The most outstanding fact of President Obama's legacy is the success he has had in spending enough to "rescue the economy, then trimming spending where necessary."

At the meeting February 17, the Lakes Region TEA Party was treated to presentations from N.H. State Senator Jeanie Forrester and Representative Glenn Cordelli.

While Senator Forrester focused on the N.H. State Budget and Representative Cordelli focused on the efforts to extend Medicaid Expansion, both guests welcomed questions and engaged in discussions with attendees.

The Tea Party Leadership thanks them for sharing their time, information, and opinions and for addressing questions. The leadership especially appreciates them listening patiently to the comments and recommendations.

Candidates for elected office who will fight to uphold the values and principles of the Declaration of Independence and the Federal and State

Constitution are supported.
