    We didn't have 25 million unemployed/under employed Americans at the time so your studies are biased based upon different economic times. Cite those studies that verify your claims?

    Nope. We've had bad times before as well. Tax cuts and tax increases had next to no effect on either. Sorry.

    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.

    No, I've linked the evidence for you before. You can even look it up yourself.

    You linked it to opinion pieces as there is no evidence that you know what you are talking about

    Nope. I linked to studies. There is a difference. However, again, you can educate yourself. You don't have to drink the koolaid.

    Funny, that kool-aid taught me personal responsibility and not to rely in you to provide me for what I want and need. Real data matters, not studies. You have offered no solutions to the problems we face today and simply continue to buy anything that suits your agenda. That doesn't make you right but it does make you look foolish. The Obama results are there for all to see but you choose to be blind.

    I have provided data and studies as well but because they don't agree with yours they are discounted. what is it about liberalism that creates such loyalty and such an economic disaster? How do you raise taxes with 25 million plus unemployed/under employed Americans? How did Reagan create 17 million jobs and grow govt revenue by cutting taxes almost 25%. How did GW Bush increase govt. revenue and create over 6 million jobs after the Clinton recession and 9/11 by cutting taxes?

    Liberals are a one way street, live for the present, never adjust for human behavior, and ignore economic growth as a factor in growing revenue. In the liberal world the pie always remains the same

    Apparently it didn't teach personal responsibility because you seem to always want to relieve the wealthy and business from their responsibility in our system. Not to meantion you don't want people responsible enough to get health insurance. So, I don't buy your talking point.

    And you provide data that doesn't address the issue at hand. Repeatedly your error has been shown to you. You're stuck in a loop and can't seem to move toward something that actually addresses the issue, and instead repeat the numbers with no regard as to what they mean.

    Spoken like someone out of touch with reality. Why are you so jealous of what some company or someone else makes? As for health insurance are you paying attention to what you are saying? I don't want people responsible enough to get health insurance? Since health insurance is a personal responsibility why does it matter what you or I think about the issue. Seems that personal choice only matters when it comes to abortions. You really should learn what personal responsibility is. Personal responsibility for someone else isn't yours.

    Stuck in the loop? Results matter, not rhetoric. You buy the rhetoric and ignore the results. Not sure where you work but if that is the way your company operates then it should be in trouble. I put those numbers in context but you ignored it. Democrats controlled the Congress from January 2007-January 2011 thus the legislative process and purse strings. Obama had overwhelming numbers and yet generated the numbers I have posted. You seem to lack basic management understanding and that same attitude belongs to Obama. Obama delegated responsibility and that is a prescription for failure which he has generated.

    Now that the you're repeated the mindless statisitics, you follow with the personal attack. You're way too predictable my friend.

    And yes, you are on stuck.
