OBAMACARE pass as the stimulus package took effect, and the debt falls. The Republicans take power in HOUSE and debt climbs – a shutdown is averted – debt falls. Sequester act has debt fall and USA credit rating falls. America does fine – until this nonsense by the Republicans and then the debt spikes.
Republican actions cause a rise in National Debt. Obama policies cause a decline. So destruction of America – irrational accrual of debt – is a Republican policy result and goal.
