    You would take the money -- especially if you didn't have any and the alternative was to lay off employees. Hey! We just saved some jobs!

    Umm, the money he took was from the federal government, meaning it came from all 57 states , not just Texas.

    Sheik Yerbuti;1059765817]Sorry, I do see things being better than they were when Obama took over. I see unemployment shrinking by 19,000 jobs in a month as better than unemployment growing by 732,000 jobs in a month. I see 1% GDP growth better than 8.9% GDP contraction. By no means do I think we're out of the woods, but we're definately out of the part of the woods that are on fire.

    I also don't equate one president who led us to the mess Bush led us to with another president who may be unable to fix that mess. It requires a far great level of incompetence to produce the Great Recession than it does to not be able of repairing it in less than 3 years.
    what I see is someone with a bad case of BDS unable to objectively look at actual data and make an intelligent decision especially someone so lacking in civics understanding. Guess Congress under Democrat Control had no impact at all over legislation and spending. Obama loves having people like you supporting him.

    How do you know that some of the tax dollars returned to TX didn't come from TX. You seem to know how to count saved jobs so apparently you can prove that TX taxpayer money didn't come back to TX

    How do you know the states didn't have money, they weren't forced to make tough choices. When my school district lost money from the state, they came to the people and we gave it to them. States could have done the same thing but you buy theObama rhetoric at face value without thinking

    Awww, how cute coming from the person who kept insisting that Obama used teleprompters to speak to school children. Yeah, you don't suffer from ODS yourself.

    Well I've challenged you repeatedly to produce the bill(s) the Democrat-led Congress passed (or failed to pass) in 2007 that led to the Great Recession and when you couldn't site even one, I accepted that as your tacit admission that you were lying when you blamed the Democrat-led Congress.

    Has that changed? Have you found even one bill they passed (or failed to pass) that caused the mess?

    I can point to 2 that Republicans failed to pass ... H.R. 1461 and S. 190, both failed to pass in 2005 when the damage was occurring.

    Because the money was borrowed. The people of Texas will be on the hook to pay it back.

    In 2007 they continued to deny and do nothing about the obvious which they were well aware of years before then.

    It would have been a headstart on the energy issues which are curtailing spending today.
