    From the article
    Your quote, from an economist, said the effect was "modest at best". It may not be a great result, but modest is better than nothing. So the only economist you have found so far think that the stimulus did help, just not much. Good job!

    Right, people are still getting benefits from the Bush tax cuts today, rebates are long gone

    Because the Bush tax cuts are still in effect. You think Obama should lower taxes further?

    What is the debt service on the 4.2 trillion that Obama has added to the debt? You call that a success?

    So then you support the current proposal to CUT pay roll taxes, correct?

    He wouldn't have to if he implemented a flat tax and quit threatening business with Obamacare fees as well as higher taxes

    NOPE, don't propose ever cutting SS and Medicare as they both are in trouble financially
