    As I said in another thread recently, businesses need to STOP USING THE PPACA AS AN EXCUSE NOT TO HIRE! The projections are still 3-4 years out and have nothing to do with them planning for today. Moreover, if as you say businesses work on 5-year planning cycles, it's clear then that some have planned rather poorly don't you think?
    Ever run a business? How much does it cost to hire and train an employee and then what are the turnover costs? What you are ignoring is that this affects small businesses, not those "evil" large corporations. Someone has to pay for these increases in expenses and it isn't going to be the company but instead passed on to the consumer. If the market won't support the cost then the business will go out of business.

    I'm still waiting for YOU to explain how the CRA created the housing bubble.

    Obama had total control of the Congress, comes out of the Senate that was in power the last two years of the Bush Administration, spends over a trillion dollars, generates the following results 2 1/2 years later and blames Bush and everyone else for it. That is what is called liberal leadership and why this country is in a mess today.

    Obama economic results in 2011, .4% GDP and 1% GDP growth in 2011, 25+ 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! 38-41% JAR and well over 50-55% disapproval ratings.

    Conservative - this is a terrible example.

    Obama didn't cause the recession that created the high unemployment levels. I think this is common knowledge.

    Why do you keep posting this?

    This shows that the Bush administration generated very good results up until the Democrats took control of Congress and implemented their legislative control. Bush has been blamed for the recession and for the poor economy, just showing that it wasn't always poor. Then I posted the 2011 results which are also blamed on Bush, so explain that one to me.

    Obama economic results in 2011, .4% GDP and 1% GDP growth in 2011, 25+ 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.

    He want to blame the Democratic Congress, but he can't say why. This is something he does, get used to it.

    And he posts these talking points 30 time a day. Again, get used to it.

    Just to be fair what you always do is ignore actual data and results. You have blamed Bush for everything while ignoring the Obama results. The question is why?

    So you select the numbers you want to round? LOL, still supporting the empty suit in the WH? How about that Hope and Change?

    Government is the answer. That is your position, right?


    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.
