    Yea, less regulation is exactly what US business needs.. especially the bankers and big financial institutions...and the big polluting industries.. so what if you get real fire water, and your children grown extra fingers...

    What the US needs is not less regulation but the correct regulation and the enforcement of said regulations. On top of that it needs to break the GOP lead cluster**** deadlock in Congress so they can actually get around to do something instead of "investigating" idiotic things /wave Issa.

    As for saving money.. start with Congress.. cut 50% of all wages and sums given to every Senator and Congressman. Maybe then they will feel how it is to be an ordinary citizen in the US.

    tie their salary and benefits (including vacation) to the national average. that should give them a bit more motivation.

    they can campaign during their 2 weeks PTO (that they earn over the course of the year day by day.) if they get sick, they can use their high deductible HMO. or, better yet, we can set their work week at 36 hours and deny them health care coverage. but it's ok; they can buy health insurance on the "free market."

    I simply do not believe that Romney is saying this, so I find your response less than truthful. But I am willing to listen to what Bush policies that got us in this ditch he is advocating.

    well, we agree romney is giving us no specifics while insisting he has a way out of the economic woods
    but the GOP spokesmodels are telling us that tax cuts for the rich and elimination of regulations will be the party's platform
    an obvious return to the policies and practices of the dicknbush era, the one that turned our nation's economy upside down

    Of course not.

    I don't remember any plunging.

    I haven't heard any plunging sounds.

    Have you heard any plunging noises at the pump?

    There haven't been any plunging activities in my neighborhood.

    It would be nice, though, if there was some plunging going on ..

    National gas prices have fallen more than 50 cents in the past 3 months, a fairly significant drop.

    To me this is even more distressing:

    The economy created just 80,000 jobs in June, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported Friday. But that same month, 85,000 workers left the workforce entirely to enroll in the Social Security Disability Insurance program, according to the Social Security Administration.
    And this:

    While the economy has created 2.6 million jobs since June 2009, fully 3.1 million workers signed up for disability benefits.

    Good news for the lib's......more people filed new claims of being disabled, 85,000, than those that found a job, 80,000. BOeconomics at its best.......more people on food stamps, more people on disability, more people giving up looking for work. I think BO is doing exactly what he set out to do almost 4 years ago.....he is transforming the Nation into a banana republic.

    It was only around 50,000 jobs short of keeping up with population growth, so I wouldn't call it "almost impressive", but rather "almost sufficient".

    In Houston, gas prices have dropped to about 3 bucks a gallon from almost 4 bucks a gallon. To me, that is definitely a plunge. But does Obama get credit for it? Hell no. It's market forces at work. Same as when Bush was in office. When gas prices were high, Liberals accused Bush of conspiring with oil companies, then when prices plunged, they said Bush had nothing to do with it. And of course Bush had nothing to do with falling gas prices in 2008. Obama has nothing to do with falling gas prices in 2012. But, depending on whether you are a Democratic partisan hack or a Republican one, you will hear a completely different story from what I posted here. LOL.
