    The link does work, but it doesn't DO what you claim it does.

    Must be you...it works for me.

    Tell you what...since you are challenged, you can just go to the graph, change the range of dates from 1959-07-01 to 2014-10-01...to...2009-01-01 to 2014-10-01. Then you'll see the lack of decrease in federal spending that Obama is responsible for. At least till near the end of 2014.

    Of course, we can expect him to keep it at this level until he's replaced in early 2017. Then we'll just have to wait and see what happens. If a Democrat is elected, nothing will change. If a Republican is elected, that spending will start to go down.

    In any case, we've established your liberal spin artist was doing just that...spinning...and you have nothing but pathetic attempt to cloud things by complaining about internet links.

    Next time you'll have to do better when trying to make your case.

    Too funny coming from the clown who said he can't open an excel file. Did you forget that I already linked to a graph with a custom date range? You think I Don't know how to use it? LMFGDAO.

    Funny, you gave a graph here:

    which kind of debunks the statistical likelihood of what you claimed in bold

    right, I'm spinning. That's why "I" moved the discussion from spending/gdp to gross nominal spending, then ignored the discussion point about real spending.

    yeah, i'm already aware that you think that the ACA is the worst. i don't like it either. i like single payer instead; you don't. perhaps we can skip three pages of sniping about it.

    The biggest problem with this statement of yours, is we have had plenty of Presidents with a (D) behind their name and plenty of Congresses that majority leaned (D) and we still ended up with the same thing. Spare us the "trickle down" nonsense, Republicans do not own entirely the last 30 years of economic handling.

    Businesses need to protect themselves from the ACA by having the funds available to make the expenditures that it would mandate. Until they know how that all pans out, they will be holding funds in reserve.

    I think the counter argument is that thing Bush called "compassionate conservatism", or what some call "responsible capitalism".

    That is, considering the vast disparity in wealth distribution in this country, would those holding the money be acting in a responsible and humane way if they raised wages a bit? Increased benefits a bit?
    Because that's a short term action that provides minimal benefit to the companies. Holding onto the money so that if the ACA rains on their parade they can cover the cost, can mean the difference between staying in business and closing the doors. I guess that you'd rather their employees have a small raise today and risk having no job next year....
