    Right, the actual referenced results never matter to an Obama supporter only the poster of that information. Aw, so much hatred for someone who has been out of office for 3 years that you are blinded to the Obama results. Bush isn't in office and Bush didn't generate the results listed in that scorecard. You really don't expect a leftwing site to post Obama results, do you? What is it in the content of that scorecard that isn't accurate?

    Keep running from the tough questions. Are you willing to pick up the added cost of those jobs funded by the Federal Govt. after the federal funding runs out and if so then, why not now? Why does the Federal Govt. have a responsibility to fund your local teachers, fire fighters, and police? If you are willing to pick up the cost then you should be willing to pick up the costs now thus no need for the Federal Govt. to take Federal tax payer dollars and throw them at your local problem.

    That is patently wrong. The charts prepared by these 'economist' for the ARRA showed that the UE rate would have barely broken the 9% WITHOUT the stimulus. We know now that it has gone above 10% WITH the stimulus and has stayed above the point previously mentioned since. And you think we should BELIEVE what economist say now??? You mean their prediction of 'double-dip' that there is no consensus on? Their predictions are as good (questionably) as the weatherman. If they were so good in their predictions how did we end up in the 'financial meltdown' in the first place?

    I disagree wholly with the 'do nothing' statement. IMHO, the reason the economy has not recovered is directly due to government 'tinkering' with it. If we do nothing now, let the unstable debt clear, the economy will crank back up MUCH quicker. Yes it will be painful in the short term but recovery will be quicker.

    No, Conservative didn't say that which goes to show how little credibility you have and how poorly you read responses. Try again

    And yet government presses harder and harder every day to lock in the master/slave relationship.
    If you think the government is your friend you should reconsider what friendship means.

    Yes, I would much rather my tax dollars go to temporarily fund jobs vs welfare and optional wars and bloated military spending. Once the economy picks up, states have more income to fund those jobs. The Jobs Act is a stop gap measure to stop the bleeding until the private market is creating jobs.

    Why does the Federal Govt. have a responsibility to fund your local teachers, fire fighters, and police?
    It puts people back to work in vital areas, reduces welfare, and stimulates the economy, until the private market again starts producing jobs.

    If you are willing to pick up the cost then you should be willing to pick up the costs now thus no need for the Federal Govt. to take Federal tax payer dollars and throw them at your local problem.
    Its not a local problem, it affects the whole country.

    If you are willing to spend the money on temporary funding jobs why aren't you doing it in your own community? How do you know your tax dollars going to the Federal govt. are going to create jobs? Stimulus One didn't create jobs therefore why will this one?

    The economy will pick up when Obama is fired. Your problem is you buy the Obama rhetoric and your comment makes no sense.

    It puts people back to work in vital areas, reduces welfare, and stimulates the economy, until the private market again starts producing jobs
    .

    So your state has a budget surplus and doesn't need more of your money?

    Its not a local problem, it affects the whole country
    .

    No, it is a liberal kick the can down the road problem that does nothing to solve the real problem of too much govt. spending and too much govt. social engineering.
