    The economy continues to get worse....

    Is there an end in sight or is this just the beginning?
    You might want to go buy yourself a milk cow, and a $100. worth of seeds and start a victory garden, learn how to can, and how to save seeds from your harvest. You are real close.

    More poor people means more votes for the, "poor man's party". What incentive does the poor man's party have to create more rich people? Pardon me, but I'll throw my hat in the ring with the, "rich man's party". It's important for the rich man's party that I make money, so I'll keep voting for them.
    LMAO! The Party of No & do whatever it takes has no use for you. Boner said he didn't care how many workers ~like you~ lose your jobs. By the way, the rich have a job for you in China. LOL!

    This is what happens when you invest in government instead of the private sector. Obama's Cloward–Piven strategy seems to be working just fine.

    Are you referring to rich Democrat Jeff Immelt, CEO of GE, Obama's business buddy and former head of his Jobs Council?

    It's funny how you ignore that it went up and down through Republican and Democrat presidents. Nevermind that the cost of living as a whole has gone up although Congress says it hasn't for the past two years and therefore has voted to keep many other social programs such as disability benefit increases down. I hear a lot of Republicans say Clinton wasn't a good president, he just got lucky with when he was president. Apparently though the same can't happen in a negative way though. I do however believe there is plenty of food stamp fraud and it needs to be carefully looked at to be more beneficial for the recipient and the tax payer. Closing in on 45 million people though that is barely a dent in the US's budget, not to mention the money it puts back into the economy.
    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    If he was too much a coward to use the 14th amendment there's no way he's going to assume the presidency that way. I wonder if that would have saved the AAA rating.

    Until someone pounds some sense into the empty heads who are in charge this will not get better, only worse.

    Obama and Reid, along with too many others still think you can tax your way out of a recession and it's never going to happen.

    Revenues will go up when jobs come back, and that's over until the attitude in Washington changes, and business is allowed to do it's thing with less not more taxes, and restrictions.

    When jobs come back the revenue stream will get better overnight, and it's all about how business sees tomorrow, and right now they they it it dead with Obama at the wheel continuing to do the wrong thing at every turn.

    the cheap imported goods model has failed. it succeeded in lowering retail prices, but also led to enormous domestic job losses that were not offset by emerging industry.

    time to give people the chance to work again.

    or, if not, it's time to stop complaining about the entitlement programs that address the problem of displaced workers with no opportunity for employment. one simply can't have it both ways.

    It's not like this shipping jobs overseas thing was a conscious decision made by one person. It's a natural extension of the free market and globalization. Companies do this because it's cheaper, it helps their profit margins. They have no particular need or desire to remain loyal to American workers.

    they don't need a consumer base that can purchase the goods and services that they sell? i would argue otherwise.

    the money is either going to come from employment or from government. employment seems preferable. companies that contribute significantly to increasing employment should have a lower tax burden than those that do not.
