Yes? Speaking of partisanship?

Raising the minimum wage increases poverty, it doesn't alleviate it. The association with wages and poverty is slim at best. As I pointed out in a previous post. It has more to do with skill and education. If you raise the minimum wage, it crowds out the lowest skilled and least educated workers. Minimum wage jobs are supposed to be entry level jobs. It is not supposed to be a "living wage". If workers are struggling with minimum wage jobs at the moment, and they are underemployed, that's just more evidence that our Economy sucks because of Obama's failed policies. The absolute worst time to raise the minimum wage is also during a recession, because there is a contraction in jobs available, hence more competition for fewer jobs. Youth and minorities end up becoming crowded out of the Labor Market.
Further, you use the base year for Obama's first buget as being the one that ended FY 2010, assigning FY 2009 to Bush. Yet 2009 included a good portion of Stimulus, as well as TARP spending that had been appropriated, but not comitted. The net result is that Obama hiked FY 2009 spending by over $600B above the budget originally signed by Bush.
Obama owns all the largest deficits.
GM still owes the US taxpayer billions of dollars. There was no multiplier. GM shareholders were also left holding the bag. The GM Bailout was nothing more than a massive payoff to the UAW with taxpayer dollars. In the real world, that's called a scam.
Obama's Failed Stimulus was voted on down party lines. It was not bi-partisan. It added it's entire cost to the deficit, and it has added it's entire cost to the deficit every year since they the Democrats passed that massive failure. (It was added to the Federal Government's baseline expenditures)
Still waiting for the defined 2.5 trillion in line item CUTS. You are the one dancing around here because you seem to have the inability to admit when wrong. Obama has cut nothing, the reduction in the deficit was irrelevant because it was so small and had nothing to do with anything Obama has done. That is reality
