    Because they are smart and believe they can make money. Nothing has changed about that in hundreds of years.

    I am sure you are smart enough to figure out why small businesses aren't hiring and it all has to do with costs.

    Bush has been out of office for 2 years now and Obama has put Bush spending on steroids. You seem to lack the basic understanding of the fact that no President can spend a dime without Congressional approval and over 5 trillion has been added to the debt in the last 4 years, all under the Democrat controlled Congress. think about it?

    Again the deflection of the facts. You support deficit spending Mr Conservative.

    You know the funny thing about all this doom and gloom from you? When I had my business it went through a recession and i still made money. In fact, when people like you were making excuses and attacking others with blame and pointed fingers, I still made money. In fact, in those days i did not know a recession from recess on the playground. Life was life and I was living it as best i could. Smart people can always make money even in the worst of times. Losers whine and cry and make excuses. These days it seems that some of it is wrapped in rightwing ideology but excuses they are just the same. Its really hypocritical that right wingers blame poor people for not being able to get jobs but then rationalize small businesses who won't hire or create jobs. I guess its all a matter of whose ox is being gored.

    Only during times of war or national disasters, how do you think 9/11 was paid for? How about Katrina? How much of the Obama debt was spent on those items?

    a few quick corrections:

    1. it is 700 Billion dollars, not 70
    2. the projected deficits over the next ten years are (assuming everything goes well) around or a little in excess of $ 9 Trillion
    3. studies tend to demonstrate that for every dollar in increased tax revenue, spending goes up a little over a dollar. so your basic point (that this will not reduce the deficit) is correct.

    everyone else, repeat this until it sticks: deficits are spending driven, not revenue driven.

    No problem. He doubles the national debt and your ok with that. Just like REPUBLICANS do. Not conservatives.
