Let me know when during the last 50 years higher taxes generated higher revenue and less National Debt and not just more spending. If you are concerned about debt then why wouldn't you have a problem with a 3.77 trillion dollar budget?
Employment remained in free fall in 2010-2011 when over a million people per month were discouraged workers not counted as unemployed so tell me does a discouraged worker make one less unemployed?
Yes, demand is holding back growth and that is due to 21.5 million unemployed/under employed/discouraged workers along with millions and millions on food stamps and other forms of taxpayer welfare.
There is NO WAY I am getting into some huge, multi-quote debate with you over this...life is WAY too short for that and I do not NEARLY care enough what you think on this (no offense).
Maybe you like endlessly debating opinions over and over again - I do not.
You made your points, I disagree with them.
So unless you have some links that disprove things I have said - end of discussion.
Have a nice day.

So let me see if I have this right, the discouraged worker number when Obama took office was 734,000 and in April 2013 it was over 800,000 and Obama has added 6 trillion to the debt but that is a good thing?
How do you know the number of people in the labor force who want a job is up 700,000? What about the over 11 million unemployed? Do they want a job?
