    You didn't say it wasn't either.

    You seem to have missed the point, but no matter.

    Just study Detroit.

    It was a study based on border towns between RTW and union states, and the businesses overwhelmingly went to RTW.

    Didn't know I had so mention everything that wasn't. But if I missed the point, please make it clearer.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Again, for what reason, and how did they know that was the reason.

    Failure? Because tea party governors are slashing government jobs causing the private sector to slash private jobs you think the increase in foodstamps is a failure of the progressive party?

    How do you figure? You think unemployed and homeless people should starve to death so the rich can get richer?

    Seems pretty obvious. If the choice is between a town that has union baggage and will be far more expensive to start up a business or 20 miles away another town that does not then the choice is easy.

    News flash: we're $16.7 trillion in debt. Some government jobs have to be slashed, it cannot continue on indefinitely like liberal, looney toon California.

    Lol !! Really ? Tea Party Govenors are to blame for food stamp usage increasing ?

    By your logic then the Govt should hire all unemployed individuals, pay them with printed and or borrowed money and then the private sector would benefit ?

    Trust me, food stamp usage and disabillity amost doubling has nothing to do with Republican Governors

    Sure it does. What creates poverty if not the lack of jobs? Tea party governors like Walker and Scott are getting rid of more and more teachers, firemen, police and state workers. This creates poverty, lack of income, and increase in social services. How is it you don't know that? What do you think the people who have their jobs slashed by republican in Congress do? Grow money on trees?
