    I don't know if I said that, to be honest. It makes sense, of course. But the issue is bigger than uncertainty alone. Lack of business due to lack of cash flow means lack of need for employees, for example.

    And the lack of cash flow is despite the fact that businesses were given billions in cheap loans.

    Because buyers need money, not sellers. The caveat on the money should have been that it went into retirement plans and employee payroll instead of corporate investments.

    But but socialism is bad

    Edit in case it wasn't clear, I agree with you. Had the move for bailouts been given to people with mortgages, it would have had a much better affect on the economy. It would have had the same moral hazards though

    Don't get me wrong. I didn't support the Stimulus. But since it was done, it could have been done in a more productive manner.

    ...everybody (all income levels) maintained the same cuts that Bush and a democrat-heavy legislature agreed upon. Nobody received additional tax breaks. We all received a break on "withholdings" that was affective for one year, but it didn't change obligation. Not sure what you're talking about.

    Then we shouldn't believe the Ryan budget for the same reasons. 2.5% unemployment? Are you insane?
    Um, is he president of the United States?

    who's making proposals for the dems? even Obama's "budget" was a shell, more concepts than hard numbers.
