    So now your plan is to end using oil, with nothing to replace it....Great plan....
    Its not my plan. My plan was to develop alternatives to oil before the world peaked in oil production. I was out voted when the people decided to go with the actor's plan - don't worry, be happy and party like its 1959!!!

    How's that plan working out for ya?

    what? A) at 8.5 Indiana's unemployment rate is below the national average and B) it is dropping, though like the rest of the country not as fast as many would like and C) they had a surplus when it was higher.



    Perhaps you were thinking of Illinois?
    Maybe they should pay down their debt. Remember when Bush gave the surplus back and ended up doubling the debt.

    Gotta love the way you spin it cpwill lol...your good I admit it....now admit the fair tax utterly shafts teh middle class and gives the rich A HUGE WINDFALL...

    this is wonderful. this is really the best ya'll can come up with.

    compared to Obama trying to defend trillion dollar deficits as far as the eye can see and a disastrous "stimulus" package matched in it's damage only by Obamacare (and the publics rabid opposition to the individual mandate), this is going to be smooth sailing.

    ya'll might as well go back to complaining that Daniels is short....

    it only "shafts" those who choose to borrow to consume. which I am fine with, as that is dangeorus and stupid behavior that should be discouraged.

    To claim the republicans are somehow better than the democrats is ridiculous

    The trillion dollar deficits began under Bush's '09 budget year. Remember? We shall see how Indiana does in a year or so with it's high unemployment rate.
    The stimulus was not a disaster. It kept us from falling into a depression worse than the Great One.
