    Yep, spending too much causes debt, govt. revenue grew after the Bush tax cuts were fully implemented just like they did when the Reagan tax cuts were fully implemented

    True. Public sector union jobs were protected by transferring taxpayer money to them through the states. This is one more reason why public sector unions must be emasculated if not actually outlawed.

    Bush has six years prior to that. None of which help him or his crappy record.
    A man without fear is a fool, a man that succumbs to his fear is a coward and a brave man acknowledges fear yet presses on.

    Fortunately, the one term Marxist president Obama is doing most of the difficult work of getting rid of him all by himself.

    Interesting how the actual results don't support your comments. BEA.gov, BLS.gov, and the U.S. Treasury give a different picture of the Bush rhetoric. Seems you continue to buy the media rhetoric. Didn't Obama inherit a AAA credit rating from Bush?

    As a non-partisan, that marxist crap just gets old after a while.

    As we don't have such a union here, and tax payer money did save jobs, who should I demonize?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Tax cuts were of benefit to the taxpayer, you seem to have a problem with that
