    The lefties in the media tell us this SHOULD be the #1 issue Americans care about.

    Never mind that household income has dropped every year BHO has been in office, over 40 million Americns are now on food stamps and 1 in 6 Americans now live in poverty.

    Anything to protect their hero.

    @ConserveGov As you say household income has dropped but what about the household income of the top 5%? Executive salaries continue to climb funded by a surplus of labor.

    This is something that the government CAN get done, so they are. In spite of YOUR heroes in the tea party who are only good at doing nothing.

    “Executive salaries continue to climb funded by a surplus of labor.”


    And whose responsibility is that? A lax populace that waits until everything is a crises to cry out and call for action? A congress and executive branch of government that are on the take for special interest groups that cultivate their favors? I guess we have a few choices as to why, but look in the mirror when you want to see where the responsibility lays.

    Actually they have a very vigorous proposed agenda but it is principally focused towards economic issues. As far as the government being able to “get this done” it looks like it might be turning into a kick the can issue on the part of SCOTUS. That was as of last night, they were talking about this being a state issue and a couple of the justices questioning the validity of having the SCOTUS even hear the issue.

    @Mr. King

    King, the link below will take you to an economic site that you can find the data.

    Select "Friday March 29, Personal Income and Outlays.


    When you look at the longer term charts, back to 2007, it’s a sideways trend, although it has slipped lately. Picking a single month as an illustration is impractical since this number fluctuates a fair amount month to month.

    Maybe the House can crank out another anti-abortion bill instead…

    I’m impressed Mike actually has the reference to draw this ’toon.

    Yep, if you had only picked richer parents and been appointed head of a vulture capital firm, you too could be as rich as Romney. So could everyone, and think how much better America would be once we stop actually producing anything. (Jeez, what an idiot.)

    While I agree that Americans should care about equal protection under the law, it should be a non-issue by now.
