    Why are we arguing about something that cannot even get 100% Democrat support and after Stimulus 1 failed? What is bull**** is your continued support for the Obama failed economic policies

    And my point is that they didn't write the article I cited, so their lean is irrelevant.

    Are you saying the government shouldn't hire anyone, Con?

    But you can't blame that all on the administration. The president who happens to be in charge when something happens isn't 100% responsible for it.

    I am saying private sector jobs are preferable to public sector jobs as private sector jobs don't create public debt

    He is when he has total control of the Congress and overwhelming numbers. Where have you been, people here are blaming Bush for the recession and debt even with Democrat control of the Congress?

    And you want to blame this condition on Obama. Fact is it did not happen overnight.
