    Republicans seem to understand that you don't increase hiring by putting increased costs on the books of small business. When will liberals understand that private businesses cannot print cash to pay for increased costs caused by higher taxes, more regulations, and Obamacare?

    It is a balance sheet recession. In real terms, people are more poor than they were prior to 2008. This is simply a matter of fact.
    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.

    Something Reagan did when he doubled payroll taxes on the self employed.

    This is one of those issues where there may be no single right answer, but there are pretty easy ways to evaluate how right an answer is.

    There's a substantial correlation between the Gini Coefficient (ie wages not keeping up with productivity) and unemployment. You disagree, though I'm not at all sure why yet.
    I think you are correct that there may not be a single right answer.

    For example, where does the effect of imported goods come into play, as it relates to increases in productivity, without an increase in wages?

    For example, to combat decreasing market share, and therefore decreasing revenues, the automobile industry fought with the UAW to increase productivity in order to lower fixed and variable labor costs attached to each car manufactured. With high wages, and lower productivity, US auto makers found it increasingly difficult to compete, and still have enough revenue to support R&D.

    Raw numbers would not account for this shift, but would reflect the increased gap, which could be misinterpreted.

    Um, the ACA has not been in effect over the last 4 years, taxes had been reduced.

    You have nothing.

    No, the chart showed expenses and revenue growth by year but if you want to talk debt would be happy to, 1.7 trillion added in 8years vs. 6.2 trillion in 4 plus years. Doubt seriously that anyone who supports Obama should be talking about the Reagan debt that increased employment by over 17million whereas Obama still has 2 million fewer employed than when the recession began. This really bodes the question what is it about liberalism that creates this kind of loyalty?

    So ask the American people who was more successful, Reagan or Obama. Reagan debt created over 17 million jobs

    Whats this post
    "increased costs on the books of small business"
    have to do with the post that you quoted? and this outta left field post?
    "When will liberals understand that private businesses cannot print cash "
    bizarre post even for you.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Taxes have been reduced? how much have your personal income taxes been reduced? I certainly understand why someone who doesn't employ anyone doesn't understand a financial statement of businesses that do

    And he raised the gas tax, and business taxes...

    You know, maybe Obama shouldn't try to follow in the footsteps of Reagan. :p
