    Because taking money out of the economy to put a percentage back doesn’t take money out of the economy, it puts money into the economy as long as you keep two sets of books and don’t mind the skim. Sort of like making a pig from sausages, it is.

    Obama is right and we need a stimulus badly.

    The best one would be the overdue correction of the minimum wage. It was set at $7.50 years ago, and inflation has made it too los to keep a small family out of serious debt. Push it up to $10 per hour: consumer demand, Federal and state tax income, and employment will rise fast. Of course, the people who plot to make Obama and the country fail will scream bloody murder—just like they have at every single mimum wage increase in history—but history confirms their dire predictions never come true.

    Americans are being tricked into taking out unpayable loans by predatory lenders. Our fearless leader has nothing nice to say about such nefarious and unethical persons. Cryptic writings on the wall.

    Why not make it $100.00 and we’d all be rich. NOT!

    @gresch
    that’s true and quite insightful. and after WWII there was the GI bill, the building of the interstate highway system and other government spending programs.
    unfortunately the other way to stimulate the economy is with endless wars. which i think is immoral.

    Sarcasm noted, but one question. Isn’t that what was done the first time?

    http://www.recovery.gov/About/Pages/The_Act.aspx

    840 billion dollars (762 billion spent). So, where are the jobs? Where is the infrastructure repair ? Why do we need to do it again?

    So Doc, why should we the people think that anything different will happen this time?

    Because Obama promised that it would be?

    Please.

    He promised to change the way business was done in DC. Didn’t happen.

    He promised to shut down Gitmo in one year from the date he signed the order. It’s still open.

    He promised the most ethical transparent administration in the history of the USA. That every piece of legislation would be on the website for 5 days before a vote, that important legislation debate would be on CNN. Nope and NOpe and add Fast and Furious and Benghazi – a couple of no big deal affairs that he just had to cover up for no good reason,. Nope sorry can’t trust the man.

    But then he is a politician and the all lie.

    Have to side with jonesb. Just give everybody a $50M year salary and watch prosperity bloom! Make more government jobs! They pay taxes too! Plug your six outlet power strip into itself and use the other five outlets on it to power appliances. If stimulus works, then so should that. Better stimulus would be lowering taxes in the first place, but then there is no opportunity to skim and redistribute as directed by lobbyists.

    Well, shoot. We don;t have any problem. Obama sez his policies have already fixed the debt problem. Well, if he can get a deal to avoid the sequester that is.

    Meanwhile Madam Pelosi is running around saying there is no spending problem in congress just a “deficit reduction” problem.

    OH…silly me. So by rising the tax on those making over 400K a year and collecting an addition 75-85 billion a year the problem is fixed. All without cutting any spending at all. Why how can I BE so stupid?

    All true! Under a Democratic President we wouldn’t be involved in foreign wars or initiating drone strikes or secret Seal team assassinations. Don’t wait up. It probably won’t be home for a while.

    It is difficult to tell them apart with any perspective. History teaches us that the way of adherence to a malignant administration is generally how things work out. I suspect rationalization of bad behavior to maintain a contrast to create a non-existant delineation and a phantom moral/ethical/intellectual superiority may be a major portion of the problem. History must constantly be rewritten to provide a favorable bias and excuse bad behavior of the beloved leader.

    You do understand that inspite of the hogwash from Rush you regurgitate, Obama’s policies ARE working, don’t you? The budget deficit will be below a Trillion dollars for the first time since 2008. The Dow is approaching record highs, and in January, 2013 the Federal Government took in 2.6 Billion more than it spent.

    In spite of the best efforts of Republicans, and the lies of fools like you, we are recovering from the disaster inflicted on us by Bush and the Republicans.
