Obama promised us more cooperation, less partisanship, and transparency in Washington. He lied.
    President Obama was elected because the country was in crisis.

    Ender1;1059058919]They go to huge corporate saleries and lobbiest who purchase political seats. Same for the oil companies. What you thought it ends up in the pockets of share holders.
    That is your opinion which is just that, an opinion. If the American people are dumb enough to elect the same people over and over again that are bought and paid for by lobbyists or those so called evil corporations, then they deserve what they get. No corporate executive casts a vote on the floor of Congress.

    Thats no different than saying what does welfare take from you. Its lowers our tax income so thats less money we have to spend on other things. Maybe even why MY taxes are going up.
    Less money that "we" have to spend on other things? Who is "we"? We have gotten far away from the actual role of the Federal Govt. as created by our founders and too many people are just letting it happen. Our Founders got it right, power corrupts and they knew that a strong central govt. would abuse their power and that is what is happening today. Welfare and other personal social issues are state and local issues, not a bureaucrat in D.C.


    If your fine paying for their health care then fine. You pay it. I do not want to pay for Wal-Marts health care. It has nothing to do with somone making money. It has to do with them paying low saleries to the point where the only affordable health care is govt sponcered health care.
    Healthcare to me is a personal responsibility and I don't expect you to pay for mine so why should I pay for yours. I don't work for Wal-Mart thus am not paying for their healthcare. I competed against Wal-Mart and I assure you that Wal-Mart doesn't pay low salaries although salaries are market driven and many Wal-Mart employees are part time. Wal-Mart definitely promotes from within and that creates opportunities for their workers. They must be doing something right as no one holds a gun to anyone's head to go to work for Wal-Mart.


    NO NO NO. I am 100% all for reducing what the government spends I keep repeating that. I think its the more important issue. Are you actually reading my posts.
    Not blaming Obama for the current spending is what you are doing and he has put Bush spending on steroids.


    No. Again, Small business good. . Big Business Bad.
    Wrong, private business good regardless of the size. Big Govt. bad and corrupt.


    Im not sure your actually reading my posts. You keep arguing with me because you think I want Bigger Government and approve of President Obamas budget. Please be clear. I DO NOT WANT THE GOVERNMENT TO SPEND MY MONEY.

    Good, neither do I so tell me then why isn't what is happening today Obama's fault? Obama hasn't even submitted a 2011 budget but the 2010 budget had a 1.3 trillion dollar deficit and had nothing to do with Bush. Bush never had a trillion dollar deficit.

    The American people were duped and bought the Obama rhetoric while ignoring his resume. The results the last two years show that those who didn't support Obama were right.

    The country never was headed for a recession, it was all rhetoric from Obama. Our economy is too diverse for that yet Obama doesn't understand it. Here is something to think about. If you don't understand the private sector which makes up most of this economy, how can you manage it? Think that a book smart individual could do as good of a job running your two businesses as you do?

    Here is a chart that shows past presidents and the percentage of each president's cabinet appointees who had previously worked in the private sector - you know, a real life business, not a government or teaching job.

    1) T. Roosevelt 38%
    2) Taft 40%
    3) Wilson 52%
    4) Harding 42%
    5) FDR 50%
    6) Truman 50%
    7) Eisenhower 57%
    8) Kennedy 30%
    9) LBJ 37%
    10)Nixon 53%
    11)Ford 42%
    12)Carter 22%
    13)Reagan 59%
    14)GHWB 51%
    15)Clinton 37%
    16)GWB 55%
    And the Chicken Dinner Winner is:
    OBAMA - 8%

    Thats why Im not a supporter of Republicans or Democrats. Hopefully more people will wake up and realize your getting jacked by both parties.

    You ARE paying for their healthcare. With your tax dollars. Please do a little homework and you will find many many lawsuites agains Wal-Mart for this very issue. Trust me, if you pay taxes you paid for Wal-Marts health care.

    President Bush came into office with a surplus. President Obama came in with people telling him we were headed toward a depression. I think the future will tell if President Obama's policy will help or hurt.

    There was no surplus that Bush inherited, only a projected surplus. The so called surplus that people claim Bush inherited was actually money stolen from the SS fund. How can there be a surplus when the debt rose each year? Think about it?

    I think you meant depression. We were certainly in a serious recession. President Bush used the word crisis many times to explain the economic situation during the 2008 campaign. So did Senater McCain. Many times. To ignore that makes me question why your trying do downplay events that are factual and understood by all sides.

    Yes, we landed on the moon.

    How about going back to President Bush's campaign platform

    "The Bush economic plan saves over half the surplus to strengthen Social Security and reduce the national debt"
