“If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures.”
- Alexander Hamilton. Spiritual father of #NeverTrump
Reagan and Bush both added to the debt along with the Congresses at the time so what is your point? Does that make it right that Obama has added more in a little over a year than Reagan added in 8 or will add more in 3+ years than Bush added in 8?
Results matter, randel and I am sure that is why you never want to talk about results. If you care so much about the debt that Reagan and Bush created why aren't you sending your Bush tax cut back since you believe that causes debt? If you are concerned about the debt that Reagan and Bush added why are you supporting Obama since he is adding more debt than both and will add more debt than both combined by the time he is done?
Why are you focued on the cost per job instead of the numbers claimed? Look, we know what has been spent, over 800 billion dollars in stimulus and 350 billion of the TARP. We know that there are less employed today than when Obama took office. We know that unemployment is higher today than when he took office. We know there are more discourageed workers dropping out of the labor force now than at any time in history. Those are facts that are verifiable, not jobs saved. Your concern about costs ignores the real numbers that matter, actual jobs lost, less jobs created, and the massive debt created. Whether or not it is 228k per job is irrelevant, it is over 800 billion dollars spent to create the numbers we have and they are an embarrassment and a disaster.
