    Re: Estimates Say Fewer Jobs, Larger Deficits if Republicans Were in Charge

    We can't KNOW what would have been, but we cna make reasonable assertions. It is unlikely that republicans would not have continued with bailouts or stopped unemployment benefits. I suspect the ecnomony would have been anywhere from a little worse to a little better, but no major changes. Again, we can't KNOW. But it is unlikely republicans would have done anything ground shadderingly different.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Exactly but we apparently do know how states and local communities would act thus we have "saved" jobs due to the stimulus?

    Yes, we do KNOW jobs were saved. Because we KNOW we lost those jobs when the stimulus ended. States did not act to save them. The evidence has been linked for you already.

    The stimulus ended? When? LOL, amazing how we "know" all these things that cannot be proven but only when a liberal is in WH. Has all the stimulus money been spent? Where did the TARP repayments go?

    Is this the way you operate in real life, buying what you are told and nevery trying to verify the rhetoric? Show me a saved job chart in BLS.gov? By the way are the number of people unemployed higher or lower than they were at the same time last year? Are the number of people employed higher or lower than the same month last year?

    Yes, the money to schools ended or is ending, and states won't save jobs. Agian, I linked that for you before.

    And jobs can be saved and still have lost more jobs. Your question doesn't address the point.

    Since the states didn't have a chance to respond to the education shortfall you don't know whether or not they would have saved the jobs themselves. Since when is state education issues a Federal taxpayer responsibility? You buy what you are told but only when told that buy those you WANT to believe. This was a bailout to Democrat contituent groups, unions.

    They ahve every chance then and now, but have been unable to effectively response. The evidence is in.

    Still waiting for you to explain why the Federal govt. has any responsibility for state education issues? Do you believe in state's rights at all?

    By the way, the evidence is only in your mind because that is what you want to believe.
