You don't see a problem with that?

    In fact things are worse, we had a total unemployment of 11.9 million and that number is now 15.2 million. You call that better?

    You continue to buy what Obama tells you because you want to believe him. Try his act on your employer, tell him you want to spend a lot of money and generate these meager results. Think you would be employed very long?

    I just don't get it, 842 BILLION dollars that is now over a trillion and these are the best that can be done? incredible that your standards are so low. I expected a lot more from that kind of investment that apparently you do or could it be that you simply are used to liberal failures and believe this is a success? I doubt the 15.2 million unemployed people today consider this a success.
    Let me try again. The report that the 8 % figure came from(which, FYI,Obama did not write), specifically makes it a point that it is making projections, which may not be accurate since you cannot predict the future. It also predicted that things would get worse, and they did. The question with the stimulus is whether it would have been worse without it than with it, and it is impossible to say for sure, but there is definite evidence that in fact things would be worse, with higher unemployment if we had not passed it.

    It is worse, what part of that do you not understand? Obama was part of a Congress that created the problem yet that is ignored. Why?

    The only evidence that is out there now is the total failure of this economic policy. Tax rate cuts would have put more money into the hands of the people immediately and empowered them. Obama empowered the govt. not the individuals and thus is creating the failure we have now.

    If you were running a company and got these kind of results after spending this amount of money and creating this kind of debt you would be fired.

    Worse than what? Worse than it was when the bill passed? Yes, we pretty much all knew that would happen. Worse than it would be without a stimulus? I doubt it.

    This is what many on the right are saying now. But, until yesterday, for the last month, I had been hearing nothing but how PA-12 was a belweather election, how Republicans were going to win it, and how that meant that a Republican landslide would happen in November. All of a sudden, after the election is over, this (^) is what I see.

    We need to keep things honest. OK, the Dems won a round. OK, Republicans have their work cut out for them. OK, time to get to work on strategy. This election result only lasts until November. Back to the drawing board, and let's see if we can win this then. But to downplay the results, after hyping the election for more than a month, is extremely dishonest. And let me add that people are not stupid. If those trying to get PA-12 away from the Democrats this fall continue their dishonesty, people will remember, and all will be lost there. Honesty is not only the best policy here. It is the ONLY policy if you want to win.

    I doubt that anything is going to change your mind regarding this President and his economic policy. Obviously you haven't read the Constitution nor do you care about the foundation upon which this country was built. had GW Bush generated these kind of results your attitude would be entirely different. And had this been you spending the money for your company and generating these kind of results you wouldn't have a job today yet you give him a pass. Says a lot about you.

    Please explain how Obama is violating the Constitution because it sounds like that is what you are implying.

    This might surprise you, but I have agreed with some things Bush the younger did, and disagreed with things Obama has done.

    Nothing that Obama has done has been unconstitutional as best I can tell, though I am not a constitutional law expert...nor are you I would bet.

    Show me where the Constitution authorizes the govt. to force Americans to buy healthcare insurance?

    Another area of concern is states' rights which are guaranteed in the Constitution. It is the role of the govt. to protect the citizens of this country from domestic and foreign enemies. Illegal immigration is a threat to our citizens and the Federal Govt. is doing nothing to prevent it.

    Then there is the economic disaster that this President is creating. Our economy was built on free enterprise, capitalism and individual wealth creation, not the redistribution of wealth which Obama is doing.

    Show me where in the bill it states Americans are forced to buy healthcare insurance?

    Illegal immigration from Mexico to the United States has decreased so another point invalid.

    Obama has broken no laws regarding the economy, if you think he has state in which bill he has and where in the constitution it violates.

    Buy Insurance or Go to Jail? - The Note

    During last year's campaign, then-Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., opposed an individual mandate. In fact, he clashed repeatedly with Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., his future Secretary of State, on this issue.

    Since becoming president, however, he has switched his stance and now shares Clinton's view that an individual mandate is necessary in order to achieve new federal protections for individuals with pre-existing conditions.
