    I thought your post was about the debt? If it wasn't about the debt, what was it about?
    Remarkably, it leaves out the main cause of our debt.

Looks like 500,000 increase to me in a country with a growing population and yet a labor force that isn't keeping up. Dropping out of the labor force makes the Obama numbers look better than they are

    Yes, learn to read. You are under the delusion that I believe a labor force gaining 560,000 jobs in 5 years is a "good thing."

    I never said that so for you to frame a question based on that false premise certainly didn't extend from my post which you responded to.

    Learn to read so you can hopefully avoid making that mistake again in the future. I'm trying to help you here, Con, but you've got to help yourself too.

    I am trying, Sheik, to help you save yourself but apparently a lost cause. You apparently are in real need of the Federal Govt. taking over more personal responsibility and generating individual mandates. The point is Obama is insulated by people like you from his performance. Apparently the President isn't responsible for the economy when it is a Democrat but is responsible when it is a Republican.

    Waiting for you to explain why you support a Federal Mandate for healthcare, massive expansion of the nanny state, promoting class warfare by claiming people who are paying most of the taxes now aren't paying their fair share, churches mandated to violate their own teachings?

    I love it; conservatives arguing against personal responsibility.

    What the....? This is totally, and completely on its head, personal responsibility is exactly what Catholics are arguing....It is Obama saying that the Church has the responsibility to do this.

    Who pays for FREE healthcare in this country? Show me any govt. social program that ever cost what it was supposed to cost, did what it was supposed to do, solved a problem and went away. Healthcare is a personal responsibility best handled at the state not the Federal level
