This is by design

So, after close to 8 years of Harry Reid making sure the Senate passes no budget, insane Obama budgets, spending more than we have and blaming that deficit problem on not stealing enough money from the productive, the CBO getting it wrong, producing fiction to favor the ambitions of the tax and spenders in charge, and in general getting it wrong (it needs to be said twice), from deficit decline to the real cost of Obamacare (as opposed to the fiction sold by the collectivists that told us they had to pass it to show us how bad it would really be), we now have people admitting that the government books are just a ppile of bullshit From the Daily Caller article:

Uncle Sam’s financial statements are so bad the Government Accountability Office (GAO) flunked him for the 19th year in a row.

The Department of Defense, Department of Housing and Urban Development, and Department of Agriculture have books in such bad shape coupled with the country’s out of control debt and spending, that GAO “did not render an opinion on the federal government’s consolidated financial statements,” it said Monday.

Comptroller General of the United State Gene Dodaro warned danger lies ahead if policymakers don’t change the country’s unsustainable long-term fiscal path.

“Growing debt held by the public, which is now about 74 percent of the Gross Domestic Product could limit the federal government’s flexibility to address new or unforeseen challenges, such as another economic downturn or a large-scale disaster,” Dodaro said.

Ya think? Vote buying is expensive stuff. After almost 8 years of that shit, making those connected to the donkeys in charge rich as can be and the rest of us all poorer, it is no wonder that the numbers we are being told are suspect. When the shit hits the fan, and it will, it will be ugly. But the elite have rigged even that to make sure they stay on top. We are screwed every which way you play this out.

    After almost 8 years of that shit

    Your link indicates 19 years of failing grades, not 8. There is systematic failure on both sides to be good stewards of the tax revenue.

    I was going to say pretty much the same thing as you, rich.  19 years means that this failure stretches all the way back to 1997, thus encompassing the second Clinton term and the entire W. Bush tenure.  Sounds like a failure on both sides of the aisle here.

    There is systematic failure on both sides to be good stewards of the tax revenue.

    Didn’t claim otherwise, but only someone with something to hide pretends that the last 8 years have been record setting in the extreme level set. More importantly, however, my “8 years” reference is specific to an administration that has done far more than set a new record for overspending: they have actually refused to follow the law in order to hide how bad they have been about it. The Boosh years were bad, especially the last 2 with the Pelosi run house blowing cash like sailors on shore leave. but they never would have refused to pass budgets, or for that matter done any of the other illegal shit, in order to prevent the American people the ability to audit their spending, like the crooks in charge for the last 8 years, have been doing.

    You may find that 8 years ago there was some sort of financial crisis which might be relevant. But only if you’re trying to be in any way objective.

    You mean the crisis that happened after democrats decided to defy the laws of human nature and economics and forced lenders to provide loans to people that would more likely than not end up in trouble or default, then when they realized this, compounded the issue by creating even more ludicrous schemes and scams to hide the fact that no matter how hard they wished it the laws of economics and human nature would not bend to social engineering? is that the crisis you talk about?

    And I stress again, that my point was not that it is this administration that has solely responsible for the overspending -although they have broken records doing it, and then, produced no measurable positive outcome from it – but that this administration is the first ever to stop following the laws in order to hide how bad and on what they were overspending our money. Nobody before Obama had the senate majority leader simply refuse to produce a budget document for almost 5 years and get away with it (no republican would certainly have been allowed that by our biased media), and no administration I recall has ever manipulated the CBO so dastardly to sell shit as diamonds like this administration has. And that is why nobody with any integrity or interest in the facts and truth trusts the numbers they are putting out right now.

    I can type slower for those of you that seem to have missed that detail and/or want to deflect away from it to provide cover to the crooks in charge.
