Here's a real-life Problem for most Americans Goober: Income falls 3.2% during Obama's term

By Joseph Curl

Real personal income for Americans - excluding government payouts such as Social Security - has fallen by 3.2 percent since President Obama took office in January 2009, according to the Commerce Department's Bureau of Economic Analysis.

For comparison, real personal income during the first 15 months in office for President George W. Bush, who inherited a milder recession from his predecessor, dropped 0.4 percent. Income excluding government payouts increased 12.7 percent during Mr. Bush's eight years in office.

"This is hardly surprising," said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, an economist and former director of the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office. "Under President Obama, only federal spending is going up; jobs, business startups, and incomes are all down. It is proof that the government can't spend its way to prosperity."

Maggot Obama strikes again!

Tell me about it. I've been on a fixed income for 4 1/2 years. Neither my income nor deductions have changed but this year I get to pay in while in past years I received a modest refund.

As far as Cameron is concerned.....

While I agree that some efforts need to be made towards healing our environment, we are a mechanized world economy and turning the globe into what is basically a third world nation as these Hollyweird types want to do is not the answer.

Who cares what Cameron thinks? He makes movies and is a gazillionaire. Time to freeze salaries for directors, producers, movie stars.

They make too much money and need to have restrictions on their incomes.

How about divvying up those billions with the little people who labor in movies: wardrobe, best boys, extras, etc.

Money at the top and the bottom remains poor scrapping by.

Ironic, ain't it!
