"1) We haven't had a budget surplus when Democrats controlled Congress since 1969."
Gee, hasn't it been pointed out to you numerous times before that due to the nature of group decision making versus a single person making a decision, that the President is much more influential in budgeting and the resultant deficits than congress ever will be?
Has there *ever* been a budget passed where Congress didn't vote it into law? Because I'm pretty sure that it would be illegal.
Or are you of the school that believes that Congressmen -- or at least Democratic Congressmen -- shouldn't be held accountable for the way they vote?
Face facts. Each Congressman that voted for a budget that has a deficit is partially responsible for that deficit. And that *includes* Democratic Congressmen.
