    Funny, over here the argument is that the President is to blame for the rising income of the owner/investment class.

    Yeah, the problem is clearly that we have a Democratic president. That's why the country is suffering like this. It's not because of all the outsourcing, or the way that companies try to make one person do the work of many and so don't hire more people, or the way that fewer and fewer jobs (not just minimum wage and part time jobs) pay enough to support people, the education necessary to do a lot of the remaining jobs becomes more and more prohibitively expensive... No, none of those reasons. And despite all of this joblessness, business owners are prospering. The businesses are doing just fine. The people are getting screwed.

    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    That will be $250,000 please. No personal checks.
    I think with that tripe, you owe the audience. There are millions of job openings right now, and we've added 10 million jobs since the recession.ended. The low labor force isn't because there are no jobs available.

    Yes such tripe that the millions of jobs open people don't have skills for - especially in the inner cities. You asked for better ideas, now that you've got them you criticize it. Typical liberal.

He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    And we have a record number of people actually living in this Nation right now.

    And a record number of baby-boomers retiring, even admitted by FOX.

    And 54 straight months of private sector job growth--148,000 in August--888,000/month
    more than the disaster Bush left him in that 6-month stretch .

    Care to explain? Or, have you noticed the labor participation rate that is at a 36 year high?

    Relaxed regulations of private industry caused the great recession. Returning to those policies is counterproductive to solving the problems that those policies created.
