    Damn! Another one that has us all figure out. I guess we're going to have to just give it up, since all these Leftists have us pegged.

    of course not, we're the PARTY OF NO, remember?

    that's why we won the most house seats since 1938 (the year after the eponymous roosevelt recession), the most state reps and assemblies in history, 10 gubs, 6 senators...

    and in the senate, there're now NINETY SEVEN of us

    The individual mandate is a republican idea, Obama wanted single payer or a public option

    Re: Obama Team Eyes Employer Payroll Tax Break

    today:

    Lawmakers should increase the payroll tax cut to stimulate short-term economic growth and prevent a “lost decade,” former White House advisor Larry Summers argues.

    In an op-ed published in Monday’s Washington Post, Summers warns of little economic growth ahead unless new measures are enacted.

    First among them is an extension and increase of the payroll tax cut negotiated by President Barack Obama and Congress last year. It would be “premature” to let the two percent payroll tax cut expire as is scheduled at the end of the year and, instead, Summers says it should be hiked to three percent and expanded to employers as well as employees to help stimulate a still-struggling economy.
    it must remind many of peter orszag's nyt op ed after his departure last july calling for an extension of the bush tax cuts for the rich

    also, "summers warns of little economic growth ahead unless new measures are enacted:" that's quite an admission, don'tcha think

    meanwhile, even struggling students in econ 101 appreciate the toxic effect uncertainty can cast on any economy

    Asked last week if it’s an option the administration is considering, White House press secretary Jay Carney’s response was not definitive.

    “Obviously there are a lot of ideas that get bandied about, both within the administration and outside,” he said. “This is an idea that’s been around for a long time, has been supported or has seen expressions of support from the business community, from conservative economists and others. But I don’t have any policy announcement to make.”

    hey, they've only had two and half years

    be patient

    meanwhile, summers, orszag, romer, goolsbee...

    who's next?

    in north carolina this afternoon: President Obama pushes to extend payroll tax cut - Carrie Budoff Brown - POLITICO.com

    another day, another vision

    are you sure this guy knows what he's doing?

    while speaking to the workers at cree, which makes those ten dollar light bulbs you're gonna be hearing a lot about, obama joked, "shovel ready was not as shovel ready as we expected"

    Obama jokes about 'shovel-ready projects' - The Oval: Tracking the Obama presidency

    the line elicited lots of LOL's

    but 862 billion dollars worth?
