    Fourth largest budget item and growing. The debt wasn't 16.8 trillion in 2010 either. Do liberals ever admit when they are wrong?

    Nominal GDP growth rate since 2008.

    Isn't it amazing that we have such good economic growth that there are still over 21 million unemployed/under employed/discouraged workers and Obama with an approval rating approaching 40%. The disconnect seems to be between your textbook smarts and real world economics.

    Your strawman is weak; i never said we have such good economic growth. Are you capable of addressing the statements you chose to respond to? Nominal economic growth was greater than 4% since the recovery commenced.

    The disconnect seems to be between your textbook smarts and real world economics.
    If not Obama, attack those for having a deeper understanding of political economy by embracing anti-intellectualism. The classic "conservative" play card.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Are you saying that i am wrong? Perhaps you should understand the difference between real and nominal economic growth.

    You posted a chart showing GDP growth over 3%, that is what I was responding to. You seem to have a disconnect between your perception and actual personal economic numbers including unemployment/under employment/discouraged workers

    This is a typical post from you, you create an arbitrary list while ignoring the what the actual amount is in comparison to the whole. You focus on aggregate instead of percentage, your views always avoid perspective.

    Nominal GDP growth was higher than 3%. This is simply a matter of fact.

    Nope! I understand the data, which you clearly do not!

    Then apparently the 55-58% of the public that isn't supporting OBama doesn't understand it either because people always vote their pocketbooks not your textbooks

    Perhaps you should spend more time getting your nose out of the books and getting out there seeing the real world.
