    Again meaningless. Regardless of parties, it was passed by a majority of elected representatives. That's our system. Period.

    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.

    It doesn't matter when he was in office or out of office. It just illustrates that point that "results don't really matter to you". You want to try to claim that by saying....well....yeah....Bush was bad, but Obama is worse. Whether that is true or not is irrelevant to the fact that if "RESULTS DID MATTER" you wouldn't be embracing and be so infatuated with the failure that was GWB. You would be running from him, Obama and everyone else that has performed poorly. That is the irony in you rhetoric and why is rings so hollow. Which is why it is so friggin hilarious to watch you post and shuffle.

    And no, something you don't pay can't be the reason for outsourcing. Sorry.
    That is your opinion but since you don't and haven't run a business it is irrelevant. That decision is made by businesses and you cannot seem to understand why they do it or why the relocate to other states. Businesses pay their taxes out of revenue generated and if they cannot generate enough revenue they face legal action or may even go out of business. Apparently you have no concept either of how businesses generate revenue nor do you understand the financial statement of any business, sorry

    Results did matter, 9.9 trillion GDP to 14.4 trillion, 137 million working Americans to 146 million, discouraged workers of 450,000 vs 950,000 for Obama. Yes, those kind of results are what you don't seem to understand. I voted for Bush in 2004 because of those results, you voted for Obama because of rhetoric and certainly no resume.

    See....the fact is, you can be a conscienious business, respect your employees, have pride in your business and STILL make a good profit.
    You don't have to rape your workers.

    Isn't it amazing how people like you love to point to what you believe is a "living wage" without knowing the finances of the individuals earning an income? What exactly is a living wage? Doesn't that vary by individual and tell me that someone in California making the California minimum wage of $8 an hour is making a living wage by your standards?

    It would be hard for me to disagree more vehemently. Corporations don't have consciences. People do. Companies still value their employees just like they did years ago. The world has changed from what it was 50 years ago. Sorry.
