    That is the typical liberal argument when confronted with the reality that Reid is sitting on Passed House bills NONE OF WHICH DEAL WITH OBAMACARE. Get your facts and stop buying what you are told.

    Okay lets take a look at one of these bills:

    H.R 872 carries these CRS index terms: environmental protection, administrative law and regulatory procedures, agricultural pests, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), environmental regulatory procedures, hazardous wastes and toxic substances, licensing and registrations, state and local government operations and water quality
    .

    Okay where is the mention of jobs?

    Now lets see what an actual expert has to say. Not some hyperbolic blow hard idealogical am radio parrot on the internetz.
    put the question to Otto Doering, a professor in the Department of Agricultural Economics at Purdue University and a widely recognized farm policy and public policy specialist.

    "I know the bill very well," he told us, adding that it had his support. Opposed by some environmentalists, it would "correct" a federal court decision declaring that a farmer spraying pesticide on a field, where the spray could reach a stream, would be required to meet extra Clean Water Act permitting requirements.

    Doering argues the bill has nothing to do with employment. "If anything, not passing the bill would create employment by requiring a whole new mess of regulators and inspectors and people out there."

    It's real easy Joe, you either agree that a free market with minimal regulation is the engine of a free society, or you think that someone owning a business in this country is somehow responsible for "taking care of" the individual they hire, with government there to make sure they do in the name of "fairness".... One is freedom, one is not.
    Actually, you're factually wrong on both counts. You largely are merely spewing the poisonous propaganda from mindless talking heads and partisans who can't see that when their side does the exact same thing is all of the sudden market driven. Also, next no economy in the world today is purely capitalistic nor socialistic. They use different mixed forms which are actually something else altogether. Only the blind see one or the other.

    Furthermore, there are real, tangible, and rational reasons why this is. Pure forms also have problems. And often lack the flexibility to handle serious problems that transpire. A pragmatic approach recognizes this and seeks to make proper adjustments where possible. But even with such a problem solving approach, the government can only go so far, unless you're China. We cannot outlaw out sourcing fir example. Understanding where government doesn't have control of any kind is important. It is also important to understand if government had complete control, like in China, there would Ben no regulations. None. So, to get what you want concerning regulations, you have to have government run business, or at least a government willing to ignore and not respond to the citizens of this country. So, again, many are not thinking it through. They merely choose a IDE and spew vomit without thought.

    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.

With that said as an employee, when you get hired, you don't "own" that job. You are there at the pleasure of your employer, and as long as you do a good job at what they hired you for. To obtain a job, then start in with demands of what you expect as if you are in control of what that is worth is ludicrous. If you don't like the pay, or benefit package, find a different employer.
    Holy ****!

    How do you see ad-hominem or strawmen where there is none??

    Do you see dead people too?

    I doubt anyone can explain how it is you think the Obama administration doesn't have a clue how business works given we're now into the 40th consecutive month of private sector growth where 7.2 million jobs have been created under the very policies you criticize hourly. Seems you're the one who's clueless, not Obama.

    Yes, only in the liberal world is 7.2 million jobs created leaving 2 million less than when the recession started a strong economic performance but then again wage slaves always have such low expectations of everyone else including themselves.

    Nice attempt to try and change the subject, but you fail. You claim the "Obama administration doesn't have a clue how business works." If that were true, there wouldn't have been a net gain of 7.2 million jobs over the last 40 months.

    And by the way, aren't you a man of your word? You said you were done with me? Why are you still posting to me then?

    Re: U.S. Adds 195,000 Jobs; Unemployment Remains 7.6%

    I do hope people are paying attention to the lies of the left. Here are the employment numbers that tell the rest of the story with regardless to the distorted information given to you by Obama supporters. 7.2 million jobs created!!! Wow, incredible number, isn't it? Too bad that it is up 2 million since Obama took office and still down two million from when the recession began and all at the bargain price of over 6.2 trillion added to the debt.

    Hope the following helps some here to realize how little credibility Obama supporters have when it comes to the economic numbers they post. Liberals seem to have such low expectations and such a poor understanding of economic policies.

    November 2007 Employment, 146.6 million people working
    January 2009, 142.2 million people working
    July 2013, 144.1 million people working

    Yes, that is a liberal success story, hiring someone to get the employment level back to 146.6 million and getting employment back to 144.1 million
