    My mistake, you said that only 20% of the country was liberal, yet a Democrat who campaigned on progressive positions won the election.

    I watched a couple of videos from that event. Here is the reason I think there was polite cheering:

    You heard what you wanted to hear but the results just don't support that rhetoric. Let me know when the deficit will be cut in half and when the unemployment rate will hit 8%? Amazing how brainwashed some people are!

    The lines are fine. But they could use better formatting.

    Did you notice the first month with 700,000 plus newly unemployed was the same month the one term Marxist president Obama was elected?

    Because I don't go along with conspiracy theories.

    Stimulus One didn't create jobs therefore why will this one.
    It most certainly did including a large portion of the jobs in Texas that your Governor likes to brag about.

    So your state has a budget surplus and doesn't need more of your money?
    The economy is everyone's problem.

    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.
    Thanks for your viewpoint. The majority of Americans see it as a kick start for the economy that provides jobs instead of welfare.

    Catawba;1059888703]Our community can't raise enough money to fix the country's problems that have been in the making for 3 decades, that's why.
    It isn't your communities responsibility to fix the country's problems only their own. If your community fixes theirs and the next community fixes theirs and so on, all problems are fixed. Why don't you just send your money directly to the communities in need instead of the govt. to redistribute as they see fit?

    Because I don't go along with conspiracy theories.
    Translation, I don't know where my money is going nor do I care because Obama wouldn't let me down. Facts however paint a different picture with 2.6 million fewer jobs TODAY than when he took office.

    It most certainly did including a large portion of the jobs in Texas that your Governor likes to brag about.
    Really? Prove it? Again the facts just get in the way of your rhetoric, NET 2.6 million fewer jobs today than when Obama took office. That isn't a record to be proud of.


    The economy is everyone's problem.
    That doesn't answer my question which is typical of you. Does your state have a surplus?

    Make work jobs are welfare, what happens when the Federal funding runs out?

    Re: Republicans block Obama jobs bill

    "the clear majority of economists believe the American Jobs Act would boost economic growth and lower the unemployment rate.

    This isn’t even controversial. The day after President Obama’s joint-session speech, the AP reported, “A tentative thumbs-up. That was the assessment Thursday night from economists who offered mainly positive reviews of President Barack Obama’s $450 billion plan to stimulate job creation.” Economists at the Economic Policy Institute published a very favorable response to the plan, and economists at Macroeconomic Advisers projected that the White House plan “would give a significant boost to GDP and employment over the near-term.”

    Two weeks ago, Bloomberg News surveyed a group of major economists and found that they believe the jobs bill would “help avoid a return to recession by maintaining growth and pushing down the unemployment rate next year.” While the economists surveyed had widely divergent estimates, the overall consensus among the experts is that the Americans Jobs Act would create hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of jobs.

    What’s more, while Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke and CBO chief Doug Elmendorf didn’t explicitly endorse the American Jobs Act, they expressed public support for the concept behind the plan.

    In the meantime, independent economists who’ve been asked to look at Republican job-creation ideas have found the GOP measures are largely meaningless and would have no discernible effect."
