    Govt. is never the answer but it sets the policies that affect the business world, sorry you don't understand that. What is your experience in private business to know how they adjust to changing ecomonic policies? History shows that when taxes go up the consumer pays for them and in a global economy that doesn't bode well for the smaller businesses that cannot compete.

    Bush had 52 straight months of private sector job growth but of course that doesn't matter. This is a private sector economy, something your side doesn't understand, and requires a strong private sector which Obama has demonized.

    Not at all. Job growth is good, whether it happens under Bush or Obama. But it's not much good in the end if it isn't sustainable, and unfortunately most of Bush's job growth was related to the real estate bubble. It's that context thing you can't seem to get right.

    Obviously you read beyond those 6 words. If not for my attention grabbing introduction would you have gone any further? I represent the real working class. Not some old folks scared about "their" country getting taken away or some apathetic college graduates that thought a 6 figure job would have fallen in their lap after they never held a real job and mommy and daddy paid for everything else. The rest of your responses seem misinformed or confused which could have been my fault. Towards the end I talk about the 32 hours thing, that is directed towards the OWS crowd not the Tea Party crowd.

In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    Question for you...

    Are you equating the 18 months of private sector job growth to Obama's policies or simply the economy bouncing back on its own?

    Similarly, if you equate the 18 months of private sector job growth to Obama's policies, do you attribute the 52 months of job growth under Bush to his policies or simply to the economy functioning on its own?

    Finally, if you are saying that sustainability is what is important, why are you so quick to just buy into the positive signs of Obama's without having a withdrawn and wait and see type of attitude with it while having no issue in simply shrugging away Bush's results?

    Darn I was hoping the answer to the eternal question "how many licks does it take to get to the center of tootsie pop?" would finally be answered.

    It is the Obama economic policies that remain the issues here. He doesn't have a clue how to be a leader as no leader demonizes any sector in the economy. You buy the Obama rhetoric and ignore the Obama policies and actions. Why is he held to a different standard than any other leader? could it be that you don't understand leadership?

    If government has a huge effect on business, then government is the answer. You can't have it both ways.

    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.
