    Care to explain how Reagan is to blame? Or did you think that there were too many Libbo presidents to blame and had to throw Reagan into the mix, because you'r from Canada and know all about what has gone on in America for the past 30 odd years?

    Reagan and Bush, like him, believed that "trickle down economics" was the way to go. The problem is.....when the wealthy are given huge tax cuts and corporate welfare, they tend to hoard it, not put it back into the economy so that it "trickles down". Until we address THAT issue and implement incentives to bring manufacturing jobs back to this country, we will continue to struggle.
    Obama has tried, but didn't have the backbone to follow through and the wimpy Democrats and the "party of no" aren't going to take the initiative at their own expense.
    You might have better luck explaining how we went from an economy with virtual zero unemployment in many states, 5% nationwide prior to 2006 and then to 10% just 3 years after the democrats took control of congress. The democrats have passed EVERY piece of legislation to be set before Bush or Obama since January 2007. 45 months.

    Look...if they cant handle the job they should just admit it. Quit. Im not even saying give the rpublicans control...Im saying every congressman should quit and we should elect all new representation.

    OR...you can keep blaming a president from 30 years ago. THATS AWESOME!!!

    Close you eyes to it....thats fine. But if you study history you will see that the economic power of this country has been steadily declining since Reagan's deregulation and policies that encouraged companies to ship jobs overseas. Don't take my word for it, take a look at the economic history of this country.

    So far we have been in a trading range for the dow of between 10,000 up to about 10,600. Once it reaches one of those it goes up or down accordingly. Dow just dipped under 10,000 and there will be up and down days, but it may for about the 6 time go back up to that resistance level. In other words, nothing has changed.
