    The Tonopah Solar company in Harry Reid's Nevada is getting a $737 million loan from Obama's DOE.
    The project will produce a 110 megawatt power system and employ 45 permanent workers.
    That's costing us just $16 million per job.
    The fact that Republicans are willing to let the payroll tax on the middleclass expire is costing us millions of jobs and millions in money that could help the economy.

    Sorry, but you don't have a clue, It was the Democrat budget passed in 2009 and implemented by Obama. It was the Democrats in control of the legislative process in 2007 and 2008 which liberals like you ignore. Unemployment numbers are monthly not cumulative so the 25 million is October 2011 so how did Bush affect those results? You really want to cut payroll taxes? Do you know what payroll taxes fund. Think about it.

    The results are what they are, deal with it

    You should ask yourself the same question. After seeing Bush put the country in the toilet, after seeing Republicans in Congress tell the country to go eat cake and held the debt ceiling hostage, caused our credit rating to be downgraded, and now they are hell bent on letting the payroll tax cut on the middle class expire while protecting the tax cuts for the wealthy, suggesting that we should end food stamps and cut medicare and medicaid - what makes you loyal to that party? Are you one of the billionaires? That would certainly explain it, otherwise, it's much like a chicken rooting for Col Sanders.

    You have to get over your Bush Derangement Syndrome and realize that the results shown are current and Bush had nothing to do with them. How long are you going to give this empty suit a pass.

    Again, I am waiting for you to explain why you want to support cuts in SS and Medicare since that is what is funded by payroll taxes, something you probably did not even know. I don't get what motivates you because you simply don't have a clue about facts and reality.

    I know you are not that naive, maybe just disingenuous. Did Obama have to account for Bush's war in Iraq in his budget? Okay, you figure it out, and quit posting your delusional figures, they are not the facts.

    Nothing photo shopped in my data but noticed you haven't refuted one of the numbers posted which are referenced. I know how data confuses you therefore not surprising

    The War in Iraq was won by Bush and Obama implemented the Bush Iraq policy and kept the Bush Defense Secretary and Petreaus. Looks to me like you qualify as an Obama supporter. Facts just get in the way of your feelings and the Obama rhetoric.

    Says one that has Obama derangement syndrome. How long are you going to keep supporting Republicans that are ruining the country?

    Why should I care that Medicare will cost those making over $750k more? Is Boehner lying that it will help the economy? Then why don't the rest want to help the economy? Why would you want to cut federal jobs - and add to the unemployment? So you can keep blaming Obama for job losses?

    Republicans oppose any kind of tax increase and have offered a Senate alternative that would freeze discretionary government spending and cut federal jobs, while also raising Medicare costs for Americans with incomes above $750,000 a year.
    "I don't think there's any question that the payroll tax relief, in fact, helps the economy," House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, told reporters Thursday. His stance represented a sharp shift from previous opposition by Senate Republicans to extending the payroll tax cut.

    Republicans haven't been in charge of Congress since January 2007 so not sure where you get that information. Again, why are your supporting a cut in SS and Medicare? Why do you think it is someone else's responsibility to pay for your SS and Medicare? isn't that why you "contributed" to SS and Medicare?

    As for tax increases, why? What is it about you keeping more of your own money that you have a problem with? Absolutely amazing that you and other liberals always care about revenue going to the govt. and never how that money is spent. The liberal elites keep their power because of people like you as you buy their bs.

    Data doesn't confuse me. I'm just not going to bother to get you the facts/links to the real data because I have noticed you don't pay attention to it, but insist that your made up data is correct. The war in Iraq has not been won, there are still terrorists out there, and Iraq doesn't have a democracy to speak of, and were it not for Obama, Osama Bin Laden would have gotten away with 3000+ murders while your hero Bush, yawned when asked if he was going after him.

    Seems to me that Republicans can put the screws to the country, but you in your euphoric state, probably because you are not unemployed, didn't lose your home to foreclosure and are not suffering financially, not to mention, the fact that you don't care about those who did, will continue to sing their praises. Go figure.
