    Obama economic results in 2011, .4% GDP and 1.3% GDP growth in 2011, 24+ million unemployed or under employed Americans in 2011, 4 trillion added to the debt in less than 3 years, and a downgrade of the U.S. credit rating. Rising Misery index 7.83 to 12.67. First President in U.S. History to have our credit downgraded on his watch!

Tax cuts put money into the hands of the consumer and they make growing the economy a lot easier. A growing economy creates more govt. revenue.

    bush* cut taxes and destroyed millions of jobs and the economy. Tax cuts are a rightwing plan to destroy jobs. Obama increased employment when he took office, but the job creation stopped when the republicans took the house and re-started their job destroying program. Clinton raised taxes and the economy grew creating 22 million new jobs. Rightwingers hate a growing economy.

    Wonder what progressives here think of sangha's posts? Do they make any sense to anyone? Putting Bush's name on Obama results? That is a cry for help

    When you get a job you will appreciate the govt. allowing you to keep more of your own money. Clinton raised taxes and gave us a GOP Congress. Thanks, Bill
