Maxine Waters Slams Ben Carson: ‘I Am Going To Take His Ass Apart’…

by
July 5, 2017

watersmaxine05052017gettyRep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) ripped into Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson in a speech Saturday, saying Carson “doesn’t care about people in public housing.”

“[Carson] knows nothing about the mission of HUD,” Waters said in a speech at the Essence Festival in New Orleans. “He doesn’t care about people in public housing. He believes that if you are poor, it is your own fault. And he doesn’t know the difference between an immigrant and a slave.”

Waters was referring to Carson’s remarks at a March event for HUD employees in which he referred to slaves brought to America as “immigrants.”

“That’s what America is about. A land of dreams and opportunity,” Carson had said. “There were other immigrants who came here in the bottom of slave ships, worked even longer, even harder for less.”

    Just more Black on Black violence.

  • joleenworden

    Maxine is probably upset that Ben Carson has already uncovered massive fraud and waste at HUD. If she knows so much more than him why did she and Congress allow that to happen? And yes Ben Carson and Bill Cosby are both right that much of the problem with Blacks is self inflicted. Cosby has been smeared and accused of rape in an orchestrated campaign by liberals, because he was establishing self help programs for Blacks. Carson has walked the walk of dragging himself from the ghetto to become a world renowned brain surgeon. People like Maxine Waters do not want to see Blacks become successful, because then they will not be able to demand an ignorant Black voter base to support Democrats. She is useless and stupid.

  • cathylovesyou

    Maxine the crook idiot and face of the Democratic Party, Slaves were forced to come but were immigrants anyway. If you ancestors never were forced to come to America think of how lucky we would all be. Because they did you are better off, you had to opportunity along with your husband to rob banks, spurt venom over TV and in the Congress of the United States. You are an evel person, Carson is none of the above, what a credit to our country and while he seems to be such a nice person, your are rude, crude ill mannered and lack etiquette. Beat it.

    Let’s call a spade, a spade. She’s one nasty fat nigger.

  • uhptony

    Another idiot has chastised me for criticizing the “lovely bitch, Maxine Waters”. Since you have identified yourself as a reprehensible Democrat I shall not respond to your pathetic diatribe any further. You are more of an idiot than M. Waters or Pelosi.

  • Wendel Croft

    What a delusional and despicable human. Vomit time whenever she opens her mouth

  • ArtPope

    Wow. Lots of hate toward Obama and Democrats expressed here today. Broad generalizations and stereo types, some with racial undertones. Wow

    • Bob

      Most of the racial tones these days comes from the politicians on the left. Everything is a racist incident to them. It’s getting old!

  • Cadfael

    Maxine Waters is a communist who only cares about herself, how she can enrich herself on the backs of the poor, the so called middle class (I dislike this term because the Democrats introduced it, taking it originally from the writings of Karl Marx and his theory of social classes in the British and German monarchies), and the rich alike. Communism is nothing but enslavement of the total population, and theft of a country’s property and wealth by a small group of top party apparatchiks who declare themselves more equal than others, and thus more deserving. Rather than opening her mouth to make threats, Maxine Waters should come up with answers to the questions about her financial scandals involving her role on the Congressional Banking Committee and the money subsequently directed to her husband and daughter.

    • ArtPope

      She should do that when Trump-Bannon releases his tax returns.

      • Bob

        Sure. As soon as obama unseals his records!!!!!!!!!!

        • ArtPope

          Trite immature response, Bob. Surely you are smarter than that.
          What is Trump-Bannon trying to hide from the American people? What ever it is it must be politically devastating, don’t ya think?

      • Ramon1710 .

        Flashback to the 2016 debate:

        Donald Trump: “Why did you lie about those who died in Benghazi?”

        Hilldog: (attempts to change subject) “I think all of America wants to see your tax returns.” (smiles)

        Donald Trump: “Why did you destroy subpoenaed evidence regarding your illegal server?”

        Hilldog: “What about those tax returns?” (smiles arrogantly)

        • ArtPope

          Holding on to those alt-facts. That is why Trump-Bannon uses them. As PT Barnum said, “There is a sucker born every minute.

      • Cadfael

        No my friend she, will do that when she stands in front of the Ethics Committee which is already looking at her case as well as the legal investigation!

        • ArtPope

          You may wish to research her background. There is a lot of misinformation about her being thrown around on this board. Also wasn’t she recently cleared by the House Investigation you reference?

          Back to my point. Since you are concerned about Water’s alleged ethics issues how do you feel about Trump-Bannon’s ethical issues? I assume you have the same questions about him, correct?

  • Richard Bagenstose

    the only thing she knows about hud , is how to steal the money from it,

  • Allan Scott

    What can you expect from a hateful “N” that does nothing for her constituents but get rich on them. Hang her.

  • ROB

    She is a nasty person who does not deserve to be in congress. Nasty. Oh and one of the biggest racist in Washington.

  • rosalind servello

    Maxine gave her daughter 650,000.00 of tax payers money last year. I hope President Trumps administration looks into this. She wishes she has half the brains that Carson has. She wants to kick Carson in the ass, typical liberal language.

  • John Freese

    Maxine Waters, I know I speak for many when I say, SHUT YOUR TRAP!!!!!!! Traitor scum.

  • rockcut

    You go girl, light up Carson’s ass !

  • mike

    To consider that waters is a rep. because people voted her into office. A lot of hateful racist rabid rabbits in her district,

  • Dee

    Old Maxine (the poster face for TERM LIMITS) brings a whole new world of meaning to blithering idiot. How dare this ancient hag attack Ben Carson,she’s not even smart enough to shine his shoes.

  • Original Anna

    Tell Waters to go home to her 3.1 million dollar home which is not in the district she was elected from. I thought you had to live in the district you elected from, isn’t that fraud just because she doesn’t want to live among her black poor constituents, what does that say about her.

  • Marilynn Reeves

    She does not know the difference between her a. And a hole in the ground

  • JOHN STEEL

    Its past her bed time. B Carson is one of the nicest , well spoken , educated men in Washington. She is nasty , old , women who has show us how bad can be.

  • Philomena

    Maxine, You are a very low life, nasty black racist woman

  • Oldawg70

    Maxine Waters is a prime example of California government…morons operating on Queer Logic! There is more than enough justification here for every American Patriot to take up arms and just go postal! Grrrrr!!!

    • ArtPope

      Do you have any idea how much of the US economy is generated in California? Be careful what you wish for.

      • Oldawg70

        Immorality is destroying this country Art…and California is a major source of this cancerous indoctrination! Morality, like freedom comes at a price…one I am willing to pay! Purge these degenerate subhumans from the swamp!

        • ArtPope

          Did you know that people throughout history have said the same things about their time that you are saying about our time? There are far more positives in the Country then there are negatives. I also haven’t watched tv news, with the exception of The News Hour and BBC for years. My blood pressure and mental well being are much happier. As for me, I try to live by the Serenity Prayer.

          • Oldawg70

            Well Art, we are obviously looking at this from different perspectives…more power to you sir! The only positive I see in this is that JESUS returns and the toilet gets flushed!

    TRUMP NEEDS TO FIRE EVERYONE CONNECTED TO THE DEMOCRATS AND REALLY INVESTIGATE THE REAL MUSLIM PROBLEM WE ARE FACING.

    PUBLIC LAW 414, PAGE 2, SECTION 212 WAS PASSED IN 1952 AND THIS LAW SHOULD BE ENFORCED. IT BANS ALL PEOPLE THAT ARE TRYING TO DESTROY US, THAT INCLUDE A MUSLIMS.

    5 CAMPS IN NORTH VA. CLOSE TO WASHINGTON, A MINIMUM OF 31 MORE CLOSE TO MILITARY BASES, AND A FEMA CAMP, (SOME STATES MORE), IN EVERY STATE. BUILT WITH TAX PAYER $. TO HOUSE MUSLIMS???

    READ THE QURAN, THEIR BIBLE. IF THE CAMPS IN N. VA. ARE TO TAKE DC. WE WILL HAVE A LOT OF HEADLESS POLITICIANS.

    COULD IT BE THAT OBAMA ALONG WITH HILLIARY AND THE NEWS MEDIA, HAVE SET US UP FOR HIM TO LEAD A MUSLIM INVASION OF OUR COUNTRY? IF NOT,

    WHY TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO AND TAKE OUR GUNS.

    WHY, WHILE IN OFFICE, DID HE SET HIS CABINET WITH MOSTLY MUSLIMS.

    WHY WAS HILLIARY’S TOP AIDE A RADICAL MUSLIM,

    WHY IS THE DEMOCRAT PARTY FOR A OPEN BORDER. COULD IT BE TO GET FREE DOPE, GOODGLE, THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES 2015 AND LISTEN TO IT ALL.

    WHY ARE ALL MUSLIM CAMPS CLOSE TO OUR MILITARY BASES?

    LAST WHY, DID OBAMA SEND BILLIONS TO HIS MUSLIM FRIENDS.

    THIS COUNTRY HAD BETTER WAKE UP QUICK.

  • Leslie Woodhull

    No Maxine, it’s YOU who doesn’t know the difference between an immigrant, an illegal alien or a slave because to you, THEY’RE ALL IN BONDAGE TO YOU!!! NOT!!! VOTE WATERS OUT OF OFFICE!!!

  • McFerguson

    Ben Carson is a super human being with class and dignity and a level of accomplishments that dwarf what Maxine Waters has done. It’s an insult to Dr. Carson to be included in the same discussion with that halfwit. Does anybody know if she’s authored any significant legislation in her decades in office?

    • pmbalele

      Maxine Waters is right. I have seen few of my Black friends who think their ancestors came from EnglandThese include Ben Carson; Herman Cain, Allen West; Michael Steel. That is why they side with Repubs and TPs to punish fellow Blacks and poor Whites for being in this Country. Carson is there just as a camp followers. After he is not a lawyer to know laws that govern racial discrimination housing problems.

      • McFerguson

        Nonsense, pmbalele!

        • ArtPope

          Really? How do you know balele is wrong?

          • McFerguson

            Oh! How do you know he isn’t?

          • ArtPope

            I don’t. But, then again I didn’t make a judgement. You did. I just wondered if you know something we don’t or is that the kind of thing you say about people with whom you disagree?

          • McFerguson

            No, you like to play games. I simply read what pimbalele had to say, and it’s pure balderdash, a pile of fly-flecked dung to be more crude. He talks about a few of his black friends, then mentions Ben Carson, Herman Cain, Allan West and Michael Steele among them who “think their ancestors came from England.” That’s kookie on so many levels…If you buy it, you might also be interested in a bridge I own in Brooklyn. Wake up!

          • ArtPope

            Again, you don’t know if he is right or wrong. It just sounds wrong to you. You have answered my initial question. Thank you.

  • Michael

    Maxine Walters is the living, breathing and zombie mentality of the current Demagogic party.

    Maxine Waters is no longer representing the voters since her “Golden Gravy Train” got derailed. She is only out for herself and needs to be replaced.

          Waters is a carpet bagger, she doesn’t live in the district she misrepresents. She uses her constituents as, “useful idiots”, to respond to her bleating of “Impeach Trump” and any other nastiness she comes up with; and she does nothing for them unless it’s election time.
          Not to mention the millions she’s “accused” of steering toward her husbands businesses with her political standing. Corrupt demo Rat female! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/08baee49e37c83c5a558de7ef448a09e2c62983fc9d5178d30de09cac81eae66.jpg

        Your either ignorant or stupid..”Doctor Carson” is a “renowned surgeon” who started from poor beginnings..His mother sacrificed everything to give her son a education of the finest caliber, and Doctor Carson her son did the rest. Superior intellectual worthy to hold the high office he now in charge of…I bet “YOU” don’t even know what office that is…,I’ll give you a hint…It starts with a “H.” His integrity is beyond reproach…Doctor Carson has no need to employ slander, bias, or use blatant lies as The TRASH Waters has done or to siphon funds to pay a daughter outrageous sums of tax payer funds..Waters is a piece of loud mouth scum that should be empeached and kicked out of office…ALL of this except my opinion of the Waters idiot is public record..”Fact check it…”. That’s your job…Then “YOU WILL KNOW HOW I KNOW THIS.”

        • ArtPope

          First I haven’t made a judgement about Waters and the veracity of her position or statements. I just can’t understand why the posters on this forum have to respond with anger, vitriol and character assassinations toward people with whom they disagree. That is the kind of rhetoric Trump-Bannon use to gain many of your votes. Is that just the way you guys communicate and it should be okay? Whatever happened to civility, do unto others…, etc.?
          Secondly, I think your reference to my “ignorance” has no basis in fact and is uncalled for.
          Thirdly, Your reference to Mr Carson as a Doctor implies that being a medical doctor bestows some special knowledge on his part as it relates to the post he has accepted. That is spurious logic.

          • Jean Langford M.

            My retort to your first paragraph is you

          • Jean Langford M.

            My retort to your first paragraph is that you should reread your initial post in reply to my post: You implied via that response you were “ignorant” of my justification for my initial post “DOO DAHH.” Hence You are ignorant of those facts that are relevant to that justification in that post…Duh…..Your obvious references to hostile postings are not the sole realm of me or other conservatives, I merely mimic that same vitriol and veracity the Dumbocrap Liberal expound at every chance they get..Waters is no exception to that hateful conduct..If you expect me to follow political correctness decorum you are in for a big surprise numb nuts…Character assassinations are the bailiwick of the Left wing Liberals as well as real life physical assassinations by “your” ilk…So piss off TROLL…Don’t sound so self righteous, arrogant and condescending…You will just add being a “ass” to your ignorance…As for Carson’s intellect..With his elequence of speech and ample intelligence: From what I have read of you…He could debate circles around your ass with no problem.

    It’s not like she cares about the middle class, especially middle class whites. She is a stone racist who hates white people. She also doesn’t seem to remember when President Obama also referred to slaves as “immigrants” while comparing the legacy of slaves building this country to the “plight” of illegals. She thinks she is going to take Dr. Ben Carson apart? I doubt she has the intellect. (Have you also noted how these racists would crucify any Conservative who dared to forget the title of a liberal Black person, but seem to forget this highly accomplished, conservative Black man is a Physician? Maybe he should just call her “waters” or “Maxine”.)

      So Ben stole the slave thing from Obama. I’m not convinced that Carson has a clue as to what he is doing. He hasn’t gotten the respect of those in his department and is truly out of his skill set. He’s a smart man and can learn the job but all this OJT is not a really good thing. Waters is wrong as far as his caring but might not be to far form his understanding what living in public housing is like in the 21st century. Carson thinks that growing up in public housing in the middle of the last century is qualification to run HUB. My question is why Carson wasn’t made Surgeon General, a job he would have done very well at.

      • McFerguson

        I think you and and Maxine Waters would make a great pair, bobnstuff. The two of you are equal in intellectual depth and are on the same progressive path to obscurity. Keep up the less than mediocre posts. They’re boring as hell, and I’m one of the few who bother to reply.

        • bobnstuff

          Don’t you wonder why Carson got HUD. If our President knows anything about anything it should be urban development. Why put a gifted surgeon in charge. Surely he knows a lot of people that could understand the job better then Carson.

            Didn’t Secretary Carson actually GROW UP in public housing? Who understands a situation better than someone who has BEEN THERE? This Waters woman, whoever she may be, seems to be completely misguided–or worse.

            Been there half a century ago is not the same as today, in case you haven’t noticed. Also just because I drive a car doesn’t help with running the Dept of Transportation. HUD is a lot more then just public housing. https://portal.hud.gov/hudportal/HUD?src=/about/hud_secretary/powersec

          • Bob

            He also practiced medicine in Baltimore and saw the ravages of streets in public housing, and the effect of democrat controlled cities on their citizens. A far cry from some one like Waters who has never been to an inner city be herself at night “in half a century”. She is presuming to know what it is like in an inner city from her mansion or from DC? She should take a walk around South East with out her protection some time and see what it’s really like for the residents. Further, to use your “logic” should you not put only retired Military members in charge of Defense? After all, what does a political appointee or a retired politician who has never served know about how the military should be run?

          • bobnstuff

            You need to check you facts, this lady got her start in South Central LA. Take a look at her district. As far as driving through the public housing in Baltimore unless you live there you wouldn’t guess they are all that bad. The neighborhood Carson worked in around Johns Hopkins Hospital is very nice and you can be pretty sure Ben didn’t live in the Hood. Using my logic retired military members should be the core of the defense department. One of the few good appointees Trump made was his Sec, of Defense.

          • Bob

            And you need to check your reading comprehension. I never said she did not “get her start” in South Central, I said she has not been back with out protection for the “last half century”, to use your own hyperbole. As for the public housing in Baltimore, have you ever seen it? I drive through there often and it IS “all that bad”. And, no, Dr. and Mrs. Carson do not live in “the hood”, They have a nice house in the Baltimore suburbs, but it is not a million dollar mansion like certain member of Congress who purport to “represent” the poor.

          • bobnstuff

            Yes I have been through Baltimore’s public housing as well as public housing in a number of other cities and can’t truly see the problems from the street. I have even been inside the public house in Pittsburgh a number of times. My problem is that Carson really isn’t even close to being the best man for the job. HUD needs some major changes and Carson has to waste time learning what the department does before he can even get started fixing some of it’s problems.

          • McFerguson

            No, I don’t wonder why. I know that Dr. Ben Carson has mastered anything he’s ever tried and will be excellent in this position. HUD is not a difficult post. I imagine even you could do it if you’d keep your hands out of the cookie jar. You know how progressives are…they’re especially good at lying, cheating, and corrupting the values of others.

          • ArtPope

            That last sentence is inappropriate and not necessary to make your point.

          • McFerguson

            The truth is never inappropriate…

          • ArtPope

            I think your comment about progressives is inappropriate and unnecessary. Has nothing to do with the truth and you know it. It is just how you feel emotionally.

          • McFerguson

            Nice try, but it’s the absolute truth as I’ve observed over the past decade. There is no honor or integrity in one who holds progressive views. I use as examples Slick Willy, his corrupt and devious wife, Hillary, Eric Holder, Obama, himself, with his incessant lying about health care, and his deceitful effort to wage war on our policemen, and I could fill up the page with dozens of others. And, frankly, you’re not too impressive either. You ought to be pushing your brand of political naivete over on Salon.com or Moveon.org.

          • ArtPope

            Whatever. Enjoy your miserable outlook on life.

      • Marilynn Reeves

        That’s what I was wondering

      • ROB

        None of them know what in the crap they are doing. That’s why we are 20,000,000,000 000 dollars in debt.

        • bobnstuff

          Do you know who controls the spending in the US government? It’s not the the heads of the department, it’s not even the President.

          • ROB

            Right ! It is people like maxine waters along with the presidents signature. It’s always been about buying votes by both parties which is why everyone in Washington hates Trump. He wants to do things differently therefore he is a threat to their little tea party.

          • bobnstuff

            This is why the mid term elections are just as important as the years we elect the president. The House is elected every two years and it’s the house that must introduce all spending bills. These voting districts are gerrymandered to protect the party so the primary becomes the real election. Just so you know Trump can be bought, he just has a higher price tag. Most of our congress is rich, millionaires plus. Trumps problems in Washington are the same as in New York. He’s a jerk. Trump has never been liked by the people who have to work with him. He doesn’t play will with others. He has very few friends. He’s like that kid that no one wants to play with because he wants to be the center of attention all the time. If the spot light goes off he for a minute he says or does something outrages to take center stage again. If Trump could go for a month without trying to steal the lime light and instead spent the time working with congress on his big ideas, things could be very different. Trump supported a true fix of healthcare, lower rates and coverage for all, he supports true tax reform, I don’t agree with some of his thinking here but the tax code is a mess so making it simpler is a good idea. Our countries infrastructure is a mess and Trump wants to fix it, also good. Unless Trump can bring the congress together, both republicans and democrats none of these things are going to happen. As long as Trump is in the spot light congress will do what congress has done for the last seven years, nothing. Shine the light on congress and like cockroach they will scurry for cover. Enough people wanted change that Trump got elected so next year lets hope enough people show up to vote to put forward thinking hard working people in congress, people willing to work with everyone not just their party.

            “We’re going to have insurance for everybody,” Trump said.

            “There was a philosophy in some circles that if you can’t pay for it, you don’t get it. That’s not going to happen with us.” People covered under the law “can expect to have great health care. It will be in a
            much simplified form. Much less expensive and much better.”

          • ROB

            President Trump is already a multi billionaire. He doesn’t need politics to make his. He took a step down to become president.

          • bobnstuff

            Trump doesn’t need the money, he wants the money. He is the first president that I know of that turned a profit running for the office and he is making millions being in office. He has more fiddles going right now then the New York Philharmonic . Trump has figured out how to suck money out of his campaign as well as how to charge the government for taking care of him. Trump doesn’t make money because he needs it. The money is his trophy just like being president, his wife and everything else in his world. It’s not about the money.

          • ROB

            If you don’t like him, you don’t like him. Me? I love him because he is not a politician ,and the media does not intimidate him and they are fit to be tied because of it. They have nothing on this man. Everything they have thrown at him is false and it infuriates them. All politicians fear the press because politics is their livelihood. Washington fears him because he exposes them for what they are. Blood sucking leaches.

          • bobnstuff

            I took a lot of time checking out Trumps history and how he operates and find very little to like about him. He’s not that good a businessman and truly not a good person.
            http://www.businessinsider.com/donald-trump-vs-other-billionaires-2015-8

            You are wrong, the media loves him, he gets more coverage then any president in history. He is keeping people watching and that’s where the media gets their money. Every time he does something he gets the front page. He’s money in the bank for the media. Even CNN gets viewers just to see how they reaction to him. He’s a gift from God for the news media.

            As far as having nothing on the man just go look at the court records. Trump makes most of the people in Washington look like saints. You must understand one thing about politicians, any time they make the news it’s good unless they are caught with their pants down and the girl is under age. Other then that all news coverage is good.

          • ROB

            The media loves him? NOT. They are doing now what they spent 8 years not doing. They are socialist also ,and the bozo before Trump did so much to try to destroy this country. No journalist can explain how barak obama was able to get into Columbia on the student visa program which was for citizens of another country and furthermore they never cared because he was one of them. Trump ain’t.

          • bobnstuff

            You do love calling anyone that doesn’t agree with you socialist. The media in the US is pure capitalist. They are there for the money pure and simple. He has a non citizen father so if he use that parent he would have gotten in. The don’t ask for a birth certificates. The only reason you know about the Columbia question is because of the media.

          • ROB

            His daddy wasn’t enrolling. It was him. If it’s all about that ,then he should have been ok with opening the documents to let us all see them. I mean it was years ago. The point is the media never bored into it. No I don’t call all those who disagree with me a socialist. Only those who think that government should control all aspects of our life. Energy control, climate control, health care control. You know those sort of things. Things socialist think that they know better than us “regular” citizens. All government should be for is making the playing field level and keep the heck out of the way. If anyone violates your rights he ought to be prosecuted. Be it skin color, religion, nationality, party or anything else. That’s me.

          • bobnstuff

            Have you seen Trumps transcripts yet? Obama didn’t seal any records, they have always been sealed just like mine or yours if you went to college. College Transcripts aren’t public records.

          • ROB

            Bob ,you live in your world and i’ll live in mine. OBAMA, CLINTON, SANDERS and all other progressive socialists like them want us looking like every other country. That’s fine if they want to help them bring their country along with changes that will result in a similar end as ours. But that’s not what they want. They want to dumb down this country by just giving welfare to other countries like they have managed to do to a large segment of this country.

          • ROB

            Oh and further more do you see an outcry over the NBA player now who are signing contracts for 25 to 40 million dollars a year. But a wall street executive earning that kind of money “isn’t worth it”. By whose standard? Who makes that call? In socialism, the government . You can have all that you want ,I don’t. Be as great as you want to be and I like a leader who proclaims the same. obama never has because he doesn’t think each individual is special. Only as it pertains to the whole.

          • bobnstuff

            Pro athlete are also over paid for what they do although they are better at there jobs then the Wall St. guys. When you considerate to much wealth in to few hands you are asking for trouble. In this case the government needs to get the money being sucked out of the companies reinvested instead our going to bonuses and stock buy backs. At one time a company couldn’t do stock buy back to increase stock values, a company was valued by the profits and the number of factories they had. The tax code made it more profitable to reinvest and leave the money in the business the to pay outrages salaries even when the company isn’t making money. Trump made millions every time he went bankrupted even though people didn’t get paid. This isn’t capitalism, it theft. Would you say a man should get $210 million dollars retirement from a company he hurt badly, Bob Nardelli got that much on his way out at Home Depot. The stock was down to $20 per share from a high of $60. In sorry but there’s a problem. An American CEO makes 354 times what a worker makes 4 decades ago that number was 40 times and no other country comes close to this.

          That’s not President Trump’s fault! None of it!

          • ROB

            I never said it was. He doesn’t play by Washington rules therefor he is a threat to their little ruse they have fooled us with for years.

        • ArtPope

          How much is government debt and how much is public debt? There is a difference.
          Using your figure what % of the domestic product does the debt represent?
          Thanks

          • ROB

            I don’t know what % of the GDP is debt right off. Public debt is the total of all the nations debt. Includes local ,state and national. We have state balanced budget laws that must be adhered to.We have local laws also regarding budgets. Not so with the feds. Why???They made it that way. Not for the TRUE welfare of the people rather give always with the next election in mind.

          • ArtPope

            First of all state and local governments have debt. They sell bonds to finance the debt. They budget the debt service payments. They have revenue bonds and GO bonds.
            The Feds do the same thing and or have trade arrangements that affect debt.
            About 7trillion of the 20 trillion you referenced is interagency debt where one Federal Agency owes another.
            Think of Federal State and Local debt like a mortgage. Banks like to have mortgage payments be no more than 20% of income.
            This is a very good article on the Debt.
            http://www.usgovernmentspending.com/us_federal_debt.php?title=US_National_Debt_as_percent_of_GDP&gov=total

            One big problem post Clinton,when we last had a balanced budget, is financing war efforts while simultaneously cutting taxes. Dumb move.

        • BH

          He signed and promoted the ACA. He said we could keep our policy and doctor. Also that premium cost would go down. HE LIED! Policy was cancelled, replacement policy cost would go up, for a worse policy.

            I think this article will clear up many of your misunderstandings about the ACA.

          • BH

            Kimberly, the writer, should be a ride at the county fair. She really knows how to spin! At age 63 I had a policy that I liked when the ACA came in. Anthem informed me that the policy was no longer offered because it didn’t meet gov’t mandates. The replacement policy cost 30% more. Deductible went from $2,500 to $3,800. Out-of-pocket went from $2,500 to $6,800. Fortunately my wife and I were fairly healthy, so we went outside the system. We got a policy that cost less than 50% of the offered policy, had a $1,000 deductible and $3,000 out of pocket. My wife had to have eye surgery during the second six month of the policy. I calculated that we saved over $9,000 dollars during that six months. Point is, we can do better in the open market without the government’s help!

          • ArtPope

          • Olaf Thunderfoot

            The SCHIP act that raised the federal taxes on tobacco to provide healthcare for poor children.

            https://www.infowars.com/no-new-taxes-obama-signs-health-bill-raises-tobacco-tax/

          • ArtPope

            So, that tax negatively impacted your life? I am not being rude but that sure doesn’t seem like much to get upset about. I think the Bush/Cheney/Robe/Republican controlled Congress had far greater impact on most of our lives. Don’t you?

          • Olaf Thunderfoot

            Stay on subject, and don’t try using Bush et al to muddy the waters. The truth is that obama LIED about not raising taxes just like he LIED about everything else he tried to ram through! Did I say SCHIP affected me? Since you are so obtuse I will no longer be replying to you on this thread. Good day.

    • ArtPope

      My wife worked with Carson. Said he was a wonderful physician. She said he wasn’t political in those days. She has been embarrassed for him in political scene. She says surgeons are often social misfits.

      • Bob

        That is so true. I worked in Military Health Care for 24 years and found most Physicians to be brilliant in their fields and neophytes in other areas. I heard Dr. Carson speak several times in medical settings and he was completely different form when he was speaking politically. When speaking in those conferences, he was calm and in control. A far cry from political speak. I guess it take a certain kind of person to be a politician, and Waters shows it does not have to be a bright one.
