    What does that say if Obama ACTUALLY believes this???

    OR

    What are the implications if he KNOWS that this is not the case and is LYING about recovery?

    Either way, the answer is, get him the heck out of office and get someone in, who will do the hard things that will turn this countrys direction around.

    Re: Where's the stimulus?

    Government payouts—including Social Security, Medicare and unemployment insurance—make up more than a third of total wages and salaries of the U.S. population, a record figure that will only increase if action isn’t taken before the majority of Baby Boomers enter retirement.

    Even as the economy has recovered, social welfare benefits make up 35 percent of wages and salaries this year, up from 21 percent in 2000 and 10 percent in 1960, according to TrimTabs Investment Research using Bureau of Economic Analysis data.

    “The U.S. economy has become alarmingly dependent on government stimulus,” said Madeline Schnapp, director of Macroeconomic Research at TrimTabs, in a note to clients. “Consumption supported by wages and salaries is a much stronger foundation for economic growth than consumption based on social welfare benefits.”

    The economist gives the country two stark choices. In order to get welfare back to its pre-recession ratio of 26 percent of pay, “either wages and salaries would have to increase $2.3 trillion, or 35 percent, to $8.8 trillion, or social welfare benefits would have to decline $500 billion, or 23 percent, to $1.7 trillion,” she said.
    Handouts Make Up 1/3 of Wages

    why do so many of you debaters focus so much of your energy on trying to score little points vs each other, why do you so regularly fail to distinguish the large from the small, why do you routinely deny the truth and instead try to look at planet sized developments as spin?

    don't you find such petty point scoring vs dp personalities demeaning?

    either way, party on

    stay up

    You fail to understand the point of the stimulus.

    That never stopped Media [doesn't] Matters from linking to a Glenn Beck article every 2.3 hours. And worse, it never stopped our resident liberals from sucking down the MM koolaid daily by the gallon.

    That went to the banks and corporations. You're saying you didn't get yours? Are you a bank or big corporation with Congress in your back pocket? If not, then you don't matter.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
