    So you're saying the Federal Gov't never uses tax money collected to pay down obligations it may owe?

    What the heck do they do with the money then?

    Well didn't Obama inherit a recession that was much worse, one that cost 7.674 private sector jobs? And WTF does who controlled Congress have to do with anything? WTF did they do?

    How about the entire period from WWII until the Vietnam War? How about Bill Clinton's second term.

    WTF?? Are you saying the 2001 recession began while Democrats controlled the Senate?



    Face reality, Con .... the 2001 recession began while Republicans controlled the Senate, the House, and the executive branch.

    As you have been told before, there are other reasons for revenue going up and down. You make the causal relationship error everytime you bring this up and ignore the rebuttals. You have a couple above. I await you addressing them.

    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.

    There is no question retiring baby boomers affect the labor force, which in turn, affects the unemployment rate.

    By the way, I never said retiring baby boomers are counted as unemployed, I said they're no longer counted in the labor force.

    ... stop lying, Con.

    AdamT;1059791897]Hopefully it won't take another four years. If we are smart about it we should be able to begin addressing the debt in two or three years. If we are stupid about it we will be in a similar position 10 years hence.
    What economic program has Obama implemented or hinted at that would address the debt? You actually still believe liberal rhetoric? Why?

    As usual you are immune to the facts. The fact is that rich are getting richer, the poor are getting poorer, the middle class is getting smaller, and the wealthy are paying a lower percentage of taxes relative to the whole year after year.

    The question remains, how has someone getting richer hurt you or your family? Why aren't you among those evil rich people then you can do what you want with that excess money?

    Scientists aren't liberal, they are just scientists. And I'm more than happy to debate the science.
    Not all scientists believe that this is man made global warming and there are many in that group. Debating it is fine but shutting off debate is what liberals want to do

    That's true. The system needs to be reformed and taxes have to go up to pay for it.
    Where is your evidence that the politicians in D.C. have ever taken higher tax revenue and used it to pay down the debt? Why are you so adamant that higher taxes benefit the economy and lowers deficits?

    Seriously?
    Seriously, show me that separate of church and state rhetoric in the Constitution?


    What is that intolerance on the left. Do you have any examples?
    You're kidding aren't you? Are you blind? Been watching your union thugs lately?

    How do retiring baby boomers affect the unemployment rate? If they aren't counted by dropping out thus reducing the labor force there is no impact on the unemployment rate. You just have no clue as to how the unemplyment rate is calculated so let me help you, total number of unemployed divided by the civilian labor force. People dropping out of the labor force aren' counted thus labor force reduced and number of unemployed decreased. So stop showing ignorance.
