    We need to cut spending. America has a bad addiction with spending what is not there and increasing the size of government to become a bloated unnecessary bureaucracy. We need to cut spending, we need to shrink government, we need to reform social programs and the tax code.

    Funny how when the economy is good, the rightwingers think we need to cut spending, taxes and regulations. And when times are bad, we need to cut spending, taxes, and regulation.

    We also need world peace. We need an end to war, poverty and famine. We need a solution to the energy crisis. And how about free free gumdrops and lollipops for everybody, while we're at it.

    1. I am not a rightwingger (assuming that comment applied to me).

    And you know the same can be said about the left wing, that during times of good economic status we should increase spending and raise taxes. And when times are bad the answer is to tax some more and spend some more.

    The US government has grown and spent beyond what it can hanlde (and should handle). Bush had terrible fiscal policy in that he ran up the deficit. Obama is even worse with his running up of the federal deficit and continuing on that fiscal mentality and going even further with it. We are spending too much, this needs to stop.

    Your argument is rightwing.

    And you know the same can be said about the left wing, that during times of good economic status we should increase spending and raise taxes. And when times are bad the answer is to tax some more and spend some more.

    The US government has grown and spent beyond what it can hanlde (and should handle). Bush had terrible fiscal policy in that he ran up the deficit. Obama is even worse with his running up of the federal deficit and continuing on that fiscal mentality and going even further with it. We are spending too much, this needs to stop.
    And you can say that about the left, but it doesnt make it true.

    yeah. having worked for the Federal Government, I think we can both say that people who think that there could be some kind of Grand Conspiracy Controlling It All are giving these people waaaaay too much credit.

    well, yeah. the laws of economics do not change whenever growth in US GDP goes negative for two quarters.
