    I wonder if I can get a government grant to start a program to assist unwed mothers with getting their start.

    The ‘small’ businesses that Boehner insists he is protecting are ones like Bechtel, Koch Industries, Bain Capital, hedge funds and the like.
    -
    Republicans only goal in the entire ‘fiscal cliff’ set of issues is to protect the interests of the wealthy.

    Well, of course.
    The poor don’t have significant income that would NEED to be protected from the outfall of the fiscal speedbump.

    Isn’t it amazing how we have so much better employment rates under the Bush Tax Cuts than we did under the higher tax rates of the Clinton Years?

    You have to look at how they count unemployment. If you’ve used up your benefits and then got kicked off of welfare for whatever reason (time limits) you are no longer counted as being unemployed.
    Playing with numbers is fun!

    But the elephant needs a second balloon saying “You’re the small biz we’re talking about.” Easy to draw — he talks out of both sides of his mouth — but then you need an asterisk to point out that he’s lying. The taxes don’t apply to the vast, vast majority of actual small businesses.

    Or you can just do what Glenn does and illustrate Tea Party talking points without thinking about them.

    @nebulous,
    made<up facts are not facts.


    but more importantly economies are cyclic. government can amplify certain aspects of the economy for a limited amount of time but they can’t control the economy. unregulated unbridled capitalism that provides growth by excessive leverage makes for BOOMS. like the roaring 20’s and the bush years, those booms were large and fueled by leverage AND fraud.

    they are then followed by BUSTS.

    the larger the boom, the large the bust. good regulation tries, and succeeds, to smooth out the cycles. we don’t want fraud driven busts (nor war driven busts).

    If you would have graduated from high school, you might have had the opportunity to take Econ 101. If you tax “the wealthy” even at a 100% rate there is still not enough to pay the bills Obama has run up.
    Come up with an alternative solution, yours doesn’t work.

    And of course that includes the Bills Obama inherited that were never shown on Bushes budgets. By the way I did graduate top quarter of my class and I did take economics and civics (which explains why your comment is just biased not very factual)

    Not sure but are you people new here. When I was a kid 60 years ago ther was a 3% sales tax and property tax no state or city income tax or gambling profits and we are in more trouble now. Point cut spending and most important the more you give them the more they will spend !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    @Redkaycei Repoc

    Obama personally has added $5T to our debt and our deficit is $1.1 Trillion/year. Nothing to do with Bush, who was equally at fault. If you took Econ 101 explain why you are so blase about $16T debt. How do we pay that off? BTW, unfunded future liabilities total $30-40B more. That does not include ObamaCare. Where does that come from? Our debt is approaching 100% of our GNP.
