Thanks Barack… Failed Stimulus Package Doubled US Debt

Worst. President. Ever.
Barack Obama doubled the US debt with his failed stimulus plan.

(CBO)

Will we ever recover from the Obama-Pelosi disaster?
We now know that the failed Obama-Pelosi Stimulus Bill doubled the US debt.
The Examiner reported:

A new report from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) finds that President Obama’s economic stimulus program helped nearly double U.S. debt.

The 2011 Long-Term Budget Outlook, released Wednesday morning, reports that the “the combination of automatic budgetary responses” and Obama’s stimulus “had a profound impact on the federal budget.” According to CBO projections, before Obama’s stimulus became law, federal debt equaled 36 percent of GDP and was projected to decline slightly over the next few years. Instead, thanks in large part to the stimulus, debt reached 62 percent of GDP by 2010.

Other lowlights from the report include:

Debt will reach 70 percent of GDP by the end of this year – the highest percentage since World War II.

Spending on Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security will reach 15 percent of GDP by 2035 – spending on all government programs has averaged 18.5 percent over the past 40 years.

And, he’s running for reelection?
The man has no shame.
