    Liberals taking things out of context, imagine that.

    The Obama economy is a part-time, low wage economy. We need good paying, full time jobs. Electing Democrats will not get you work.

    I dunno. Why does anyone think stuff like this is a good idea?
    No one...including Jeb Bush. Way to misunderstand what he said though, lib.

    Still waiting for conservatives to apologize for misconstruing Obama's statements (e.g. 'You didn't build that') during the last election.

    I most assuredly am not a "lib"...and I suspect my comment, although just thinly veiled sarcasm, is probably a heck of a lot closer to the truth than they stuff you are peddling, Warrior.

    ..and voting for the GOP will solve that problem, how?

    Well, for starters, I imagine by agreeing with (among other groups) Unions and getting rid of Obamacare's 30-hour workweek burdens.
    Worth noting, Democrats: President Trump will have a Pen and a Phone. #Precedent.

    Why? He just called wealthy people "society's lottery winners"....insinuating that they are just lucky and didnt work hard for what they have. Lizzy Warren said the same thing as Obama said....this type of insanity is clearly in the radical liberal agenda of wealth redistribution. They call it "income inequality"...well....they only want you can get income equality is to rob, cheat, and steal from successful people....and that doesnt just mean the mega wealthy, that means the middle class has to lower their standard of living as well. Sorry if I dont feel like having less when I worked for more.

    But I get accused for being greedy because I want to reap the fruits of my labor.

    Stop taxing the balls off people so they can create and grow businesses and create jobs....which will improve the economy...which will actually increase tax revenue....and will actually grow the GDP so maybe, just maybe, we will have an economy bigger than our national debt again, unlike what it is under Obama the regulator in chief.

    Who in the GOP agree with unions? Also, companies cutting costs by having workers either a.) take on the duties of more than one person's job b.) paying the lowest wage possible/not increasing wages to keep up with inflation and c.) shifting the burden of benefits like retirement/health care etc....on the worker while at the same time increasing their bottom line off the backs of workers is hardly a new concept. I don't see the GOP being a champion of workers much less speaking out against this sort of stuff.

    Taxes have nothing to do with the trend.

    http://finance.yahoo.com/news/as-dow...161616134.html

    Over the past five years, total profits of the current Dow 30 members surged by more than 42% through the end of 2014, to nearly $320 billion. This has driven the average annual profit per employee up by more than 34% since 2009, to $48,887. It hardly bears repeating that wages across the U.S. economy have barely grown at all in recent years beyond the general rate of inflation.

    Most of the financial bounty from this corporate renaissance has gone to investors (and the top corporate executives who reap rewards from higher share prices).
    There are a variety of forces pushing this trend, many of them underway for decades.

    Two generations of corporate executives have been steeped in the productivity ethic, a constant imperative to do more with less, to substitute automation technology for human workers and to defend profit margins zealously even in flush times. Globalization brought new competitors and low-cost labor in other world regions.

    One could defend these companies by noting that if they’ve managed record profits while keeping payrolls lean, it says they didn’t need to hire any more people after all.

    Just saw the story on Yahoo. Jeb immediately clarified his statement that too many people are jobless and are not able to work enough.
