Previously: Sen. Claire McCaskill (D): and you shall know her by her political enemies (June 22, 2011)
Crossroads GPS, a republican right wingnut astroturf organization, has dumped a ton of money into a television ad attacking Senator Claire McCaskill.
Senator Claire McCaskill (D): All of us need to realize the debt is a real problem, the deficit is a real problem.
Announcer: Oh, really, Senator?
[U.S. Debt up $5.6 Trillion Since 2007]
You voted for skyrocketing debt, the failed stimulus…
[Stimulus Bill $830 Billion]
[Healthcare Takeover: $1 Trillion]
You voted for reckless spending. And how’d you pay for it?
[McCaskill Voted To Raise The Debt Limit Six Times]
Billions in new taxes and trillions in crushing debt.
Senator Claire McCaskill (D): The debt is a real problem.
Announcer: Sorry, Senator McCaskill, no more reckless spending, no new taxes, and no more blank checks.

The republicans believe everyone with a television set in America is stoopid.
Failed stimulus? Really?:
From the office of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D).
Gee, that chart shows a very different trajectory from the previous republican administration, don’t you think? Or are the republican hacks at Crossroads GPS insinuating that the stimulus wasn’t big enough? Just asking, but hardly probable.
Skyrocketing Debt? Who took a budget surplus and wasted it? Waiting, waiting, waiting…
….The Bush Tax Cuts Are The Primary Driver Of Federal Budget Deficits Over The Next Decade….
Rep. Vicky Hartzler (r): town hall in Blue Springs, part 2 (April 30, 2011)
We have a “debt crisis” because dubya gave a windfall tax break to the top two percent, thereby increasing the distribution of wealth upward, and significantly decreasing revenue.
Because millionaires and billionaires have suffered so greatly over the last few years, right? That’ll sell with everyone else.
And voting on the debt limit?: Pot, kettle deeply acquainted
Yep, republicans think everyone in America is stoopid.
…Total spending on the Missouri effort is more than $219,230…
And they have an unlimited amount of money.
