    Because the market and business in general like a government that won't overburden them with over-regulation and taxes, and consumers have more money to spend and do it with more confident when they don't have the government threatening more regulation and taxes, too.

    My company is even thinking about hiring right now with so much uncertainty from the government and its intenions toward Wall Street, big business, taxes, healthcare, etc.

    Just wait until the inflation from Obama's spending kicks in. It's going to be ugly.

    Taxes are low because profits are WAY down. You can't tax the wages of unemployed people or the profits of unprofitable businesses.

    Um......no.

    Going into the 2002 elections, President Bush campaigned hard for voters to elect a Republican Congress and he got his wish. Republicans expanded their majority in the House and regained control of the Senate. While Democrats were reeling from their congressional losses, they did win governor's races in the key presidential battleground states of Illinois, Michigan and Wisconsin

    I imagine it's a matter of degree.... look at spending under the last admin. Now look at spending under the present.




    It's all Bush's fault!!!!

    Its like this weird bizarro world of 3 or 4 years ago, when the second group only posted bad economic news and the first group only posted good economic news.

    Weird how that works.

    What is even weirder is that one particular group makes these accusations in bad economic posts, while another group makes these accusations in good economic posts, but rarely does anyone make them in both posts.

    Odd, I think this had a bizarro world trend from some years ago too.

    Why would that be...hmmm...what could possibly be the reason....
    Two different views of the world?

    Did I win a prize?

    Didn't think so.

    This post says it all. In an unstable investment environment as stated above, you would have to be nuts to invest or expand a business. You sit tight until things settle down and you can make an informed decision...... any thing else is betting at the roulette wheel, on a crooked table.

    And November, I'm sorry to tell you, is already in the bag for Republicans. The Dems are going to take huge hits, including a lot of people who've been running your party for a long, long time.
    Just like in Pennsylvania?

    I can't believe you are celebrating a win by a guy who ran on a platform that makes Rush Limbaugh look like Dennis Kucinich.

    The guy sure sounds like a ditto head.... but I think that was pure political expediency.

    I wish there were recalls on politicians that lie to get elected then turn around and vote opposite of what they campaigned on. As it stands, all you can do is live with it or shoot them.... shooting unfortunately has a few draw backs.
