Fiscally Responsible?

My Mother-In-Law showed me something she received from a Democratic Co-Worker of hers yesterday. This was the Chart she was shown:

This was My response:
The Constitution
Article I
Section. 7.

All Bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with Amendments as on other Bills.
Section. 8.
The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;
To borrow Money on the credit of the United States;
To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures;
Now who’s the “Knuckle-Draggers”?
