    Sense Obama took office unemployment went from 7.4% to almost 10%. Welfare has expanded by 13% food stamps by 50%. The CBO says accumulating deficits will push federal debt held by the public to significantly higher levels. At the end of 2009, debt held by the public was $7.5 trillion, or 53 percent of GDP; by the end of 2020, debt is projected to climb to $15 trillion, or 67 percent of GDP if we don’t stop the spending.

    @bonfirejovi Also reduce regulation and abolish those programs and agencies that are epic failures. Take the Dept of Energy when is was started in the 70s we were only 30% dependent on foreign oil. Today we are more then 70% dependent on foreign oil. HUD is another epic failure that had a huge effect on causing the recession. Sense the Dept of Educations intervention in the States k-12 Schools test scores or worse every year. And now K-12 cost us $12k to $29k per pupil per year.

    Obama resign now, you are a failure and have made things worse, let someone else take your place who knows what there doing.

    @bonfirejovi I am …
    @bonfirejovi I am not an economist but it seems reasonable that a favorable environment helps businesses, big or small. No one lives alone in a society. Incentives provided by the government, either directly as tax-cuts or indirectly as improved infrastructure or a healthy work force (universal health insurance), would help new and old businesses.
    USA already has an economic structure favoring big businesses, which receive huge subsidies. This is not new in US history…

    @bonfirejovi stop …
    @bonfirejovi stop subsidies. Lol. Really, lol. Republicans have been subsidizing just about everything abroad in order to increase oil production and overseas manufacturing. Don’t lecture democrats about subsidizing. As for taxes I agree with you on that. That’s why I can’t wait when Obama reduces the middle class’ tax. And stop giving 100,000 bank for every millionaire. New Rules.

    A true economic …
    A true economic illiterate. America has a history of economically illiterate presidents. If he wants to get small business hiring and growing then maybe he should stop with the subsidies and lower the compliance costs as well as taxes (I am not talking income tax).

    It’s getting real …
    It’s getting real old. Completely boring, empty rhetoric. At this point, Obama is only supported by those with their hand out, asking what he’s going to do for them, not what he’s doing for the country. You’d think even they would learn by now. What will it take? Talk about not seeing the forest for the trees. Wow, still lots of ignorance out there. Let’s evolve, people. Time to move on.

    @100crawma You are totally right pointing to the fact that republicans are nothing but slaves for the rich.

    At least Obama wants to help the middle-class. Without a strong middle-class, it is down hill all the way…

  11. ManACanadian says:

    @truthforamerica …
    @truthforamerica You are right. President Obama is much better at running USA than his predecessor who as a businessman had nothing but bankruptcies and loss. The previous president gave lots of tax breaks, only to the rich, and let the market be free.

    Thank God there is a US president who has a VISION and actually CARES about the people. The STUPID market got us into this horrifying mess. If you let the wolves, super-rich, run the show, don’t expect the middle-class to survive.

    Notice how everyone has scripted questions? The old guy didn’t act like he even knew what the question was? Have a sneaking suspicion it was handed to him?

  14. truthforamerica says:

    It’s because of …
    It’s because of this idiot we have in the White House that we have the tanking economy. The guy never ran a business in his life or signed paychecks. He doesn’t have a clue. He espouses the failed Keynsian models that have proven not to work. Spend your way out of recession? Yeah right, making it worse. But again, that’s what happened when millions of idiots put a community organizer in the White House.

    @democratsaresmart

    The Democrats have total control of the house and senate. The Republicans can’t block anything, even if they wanted to.

    Doesn’t matter anyway, because both parties work for the same people and it’s not you and I.
