    Yeah..."tax reductions". Jobs save by "stimulus funds". I mean if I were a bank, yeah. Unemployment shot up to near 10%, staid there for a good long while. We didn't need "tax reductions", we needed work projects. Didn't get **** less you were Wall Street or a Bank. The rest of us had to strap in and ride this bull to the end.

    What did Bush II really do for us? Not a whole lot of anything. Thank you Status Quo.

    Of course, 85% of the country's wealth is owned by the top 20% of the population. That's why we need to end supply side economics, not continue it as the GOP propose.

    Your posts seem to have a glass half empty outlook. You aren't going to try to tell me that my business more than doubling is not really a good thing, are you?

    Yeah, I've heard it all before. You'll change your tune once you devolve past language.

    It beats the Wall Street welfare programs that have been shoved on us the last 4 years.

    Are you opposed to tax reductions? Are you opposed to the millions of state jobs that were saved by the stimulus funds? Unemployment shot up due to the worst recession since the great depression. The president and the democrats put together the American Jobs Act as well, which the GOP shot down.

    I'm opposed to legislation which is mathematically at odds with reality.

    Yeah and thanks for the "We tried to help you, but the other side shot us down" excuse. You Republocrats are great with that one.

    The only one I remember is the one that both parties agreed to prevent the collapse of the world economy. If we do what the Democrats propose and once again establish the firewall between investment banks and commercial banks, we won't be put in that position in the future.



    I have no idea what your business is. It could be good......or not.
    Let me reassure you, it is a very good thing.
