    I see, I'm just trying to get it to show mom change like the table you posted and not actual numbers. Much easier to view when the table is formatted that way.

    EDIT: Nevermind, figured it out.

    A whole point? That's awesome!!

    It's amazing how Republicans will beg and plead for tax cuts, and then whine when they actually get a tax cut. It's the ultimate hyperpartisan bull****.
    It's even more amazing how Libbos will celebrate medocrity. You want to brag about giving employees a tax payroll tax cut? Let them keep $500 a month, or even a thousand. Now, that is a tax cut to brag about.

    And then listen to the right bitch about an even more rapidly increasing debt/deficit? You know what being between a rock and a hard place means, right?

IF he gets re-elected--notice the big if--the unemployment rate will shoot right back up.

    Let me just make my position clear: I'm a conservative, not a Republican. I don't give a crap who is in office. If the only STIMULUS we have going is tax cuts, I'm happy. I'm for tax cuts. I'd PERFER tax reform, including reform that ensured a balanced budget, but hey, I'm happy now. My CONCERN is that Obama's track record leads me to believe this won't permanent, but as long as the only thing he's doing I'm happy. In fact, I think the only reason it's happening is the Republican house, but whatever. Lets keep going in THAT direction.

    Maybe Obama shouldn't have spent $5 trillion in just three years. Whatcha think?

    I have way too much common sense to believe that a one percent increase is anywhere close to awesome.

    I hope Obama runs on that this year.
