    Sure, no problem. Republicans may have finally learned the lesson that taking a pledge to one ideology, refusing to take an action even if it’s detrimental to the nation and their constituents, is a bad idea. I wish they could have figured it out earlier, maybe we could have prevented this mess, but there’s nothing happening now that didn’t happen in the last Republican Great Depression of the 1920s and 30s.

    “… the last Republican Great Depression of the 1920s and 30s.”
    -
    You’re blaming the Great Depression on the Republicans? How did you come to that conclusion?

    Well first of all you can trace our current fiscal problems back to Alexander Hamilton. The current automatic cuts will only slow the rate of growth. We may to need to raise taxes, however FIRST cut spending & get out of the way of private sector job creation. Government jobs are nice but the taxes they pay come out of the treasury, a rather obscene vicious circle.

    Oh yah, real spending cuts don’t happen 5 or ten years down the road, they go into effect before the tax raises.

    Maybe Carmen is opposed to Norquist’s support of same-sex marriage.

    Are you missing the fact that obama has been president the last 4 years? That in the 2 years where he had complete control where he could do anything he only managed to add the health care tax? The the budgets he submited not one single democrat voted for? That for the debt crisis his only plan has been to ask the Republicans for a plan so he can reject it?

    Wasn’t Hoover President? Didn’t Republicans force austerity in 1937, which renewed and prolonged the recovery effort?

    @catzilla23

    these ideas are all myths. It’s like saying all service jobs should be abolished because they don’t really “make” anything.

    @fbjsr

    Never had complete control and Republicans have worked almost treasonously to sabotage the economy.

    “Wasn’t Hoover President?”
    -
    Yes he was, but I’m looking for causation, not coincedence.
    -
    “Didn’t Republicans force austerity in 1937, which renewed and prolonged the recovery effort?”
    -
    Yes, sort of (they couldn’t have FORCED it unless FDR vetoed it, and then they overturned his veto), but I was referring to the actions that got us into it initially.

    I can’t figure it out…
    Were you being ironic or do you actually believe all that nonsense?

    No Darsan, it was Roosevelt’s policies that prolonged the Great Depression by 7 years, according to an exhaustive UCLA study on the subject completed a few years ago.

    The great mistakes that caused the Hoover-Roosevelt depression were: (1) blocking free trade, (2) raising taxes over the entire economy three times, (3) greatly expanding the regulatory apparatus, thus constricting free enterprise, mostly pointlessly, and (4) greatly expanding the welfare apparatus. The crazy leftists always attributed “causation” to “the stock market crash,” even though unemployment was only 6% eight months after the crash.

    In sharp contrast, President Obama has (1) stalled all bilateral trade agreements, (2) endeavored to raise taxes over the entire economy, (3) greatly expanded the regulatory apparatus, and (4) greatly expanded the welfare apparatus. The crazy leftists always attribute “causation” to “Bush did it,” even though the economy did not melt down until 18 months after Nancy Pelosi declare the “end” to the Bush tax cuts.

    When we do get Free Enterprise it wrecks havoc. Still doing it now to the entire planet.
