The President failed to mention that the "deficit" is direct result of 3 items only- 1. Defense Spending for 2 illegal wars- which is 40% of our entire budget. including the never discussed immense cost in health care services and dissablity checks we must now pay for the thousands and thousands of injured and maimed soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. 2nd. the first round of Bush tax cuts to the wealthiest that clearly has not trickled down to anyone in the last 8 years. This next round will make it worse. 3rd. Wall Street Banks- bundling fraudulent mortgages and selling the packages as investments. The federal investigators just determined it was forseen and preventable. Do not let them blame our economic situation on medicaid, medicare and social security. They have raided the surplus Social Security fund to pay for endless war instead of protecting our citizens who are suffering here at home.
