    The problem lies with our government. Not a person or party. People need to stop blaming a party and start blaming them all.

    The $30/wk figure was for someone making $75k, which is admittedly on the high side. It's $20/wk for someone making $50k. Payroll tax cut standoff's impact: What $40 a paycheck means to you – This Just In - CNN.com Blogs
    And 10 bucks a week for someone making 25 grand?

If it's not you, that's cool. Have a good laugh with me then.
    The biggest 180 being done is in the economy, which went from losing jobs (under bush*) to creating jobs (under Obama)

    How do you explain that there are 2 million fewer jobs now, than there were when Obama was inaugurated?

    I say you can't prove he spent $5 trillion because he didn't.

    Its only down 450,000 now than in Jan 2009.

    I think it was down 2 million at some point in late 2010/early 2011.
