Oh come on Mike. You know good and well this country is past its eyeballs in debt. If that's extreme, blame on your party that's running the White House. If you really want to see extreme, see how the deficit has increased since he's been in the WH. You're right, my post was extreme and correct. Sorry bud, but the truth sometimes is extreme and it hurts.
Yes, it is in debt. Did I dispute this? Nope. So what do we do about it? Well if you compromise,I would think the issue could be addressed. But until then, it will likely stay the same.
My opinion is, American could see the tax ideas of Obama were more in line with reducing that debt than Mitt's.
Lowing taxes is not a path to reduced debt. Increasing the military is not a path to reduced debt.

Now maybe the electorate felt neither party was going to reduce the debt. Then it seems as if they at least wanted someone that spent money on building America, not the military.

<quoted text>Thank you for posting your source. I know you are new to debating, so you may not know expected protocol.
I note, none of those on this list is quoted directly for why they are having layoffs. This is why I expect links. I want to know just who is claiming what.
This article uses a list from another site,'the Blaze'. The Blaze is an extreme right wing site. I have no idea if they have any actual confirmation of why the layoffs are coming.
You see, I, unlike republicans, do not accept the opinion of a right wing news site. I expect actual quotes or something to confirm the opinion. None are in this article. None.
Movement of Work

In the third quarter of 2012, 29 extended mass layoffs involved
movement of work and were associated with 3,941 worker separations.
Fifty-five percent of the events related to movement of work were from
manufacturing industries. Employers cited organizational changes as
the economic reason for layoff in 52 percent of the events involving
movement of work. Among workers affected by the movement of work, the
largest proportions were in the South.(See tables 6-8.)

The 29 events with movement of work for the third quarter involved 41
identifiable relocations of work actions.(See table 9.) Employers
were able to provide information on the specific number of worker
separations for 21 of these actions. Among these actions, most were
domestic reassignments and involved work moving within the same
company.(See table 10.)

Recall Expectations

Forty-seven percent of the private nonfarm employers reporting an
extended mass layoff in the third quarter of 2012 anticipated
recalling at least some of the displaced workers. Of those employers
expecting to recall workers, 22 percent indicated the offer would be
extended to all displaced employees and 62 percent anticipated
extending the offer to at least half of the workers. Among employers
expecting to recall laid-off workers, 60 percent intend to do so
within six months. Excluding extended mass layoff events due to
seasonal work and vacation period, employers anticipated recalling the
laid-off workers in 35 percent of the events.(See table 11.)

You are talking about grade schools and not college, right Miley?

That is democrat compromise...
Red haring. The house knows what plans are a compromise. Sending extreme bills to the Senate is a waste of time.
Clearly your side would not know compromise if it slapped them in the face.
Compromise does not mean, passing all the republicans want.

Your post shows many extremist positions. All the conservatives here are all the way to the right.
And your team and teammates are not all the way to the left?

That is a good compromise don't you say?
If we need a solution from a ten year old, we will call you.
Should employers all ask what party the employee is from? Your ideas are that of division.

Thanks for proving my point. Democrats want what propels a person out of poverty, republicans do not.
Why does it matter what is a 'right' here? If it helps America, it helps America.
Republicans=no solutions.

And many Republicans are in denial about two wars on the credit card and the six years of total Republican control of spending like drunken sailors and thier major contribution to the deficit. It's all Obama's fault, Right? You saw on Tuesday how much this country believes this. The Republican party has disenfranchised too many groups of people to remain an effective alternative. That is the fact. Do I hope that we can all work together and compromise for the good of the country? Yes. Is your party willing to? That is the question. Your party can make great strides in the days to come by working together for viable solutions to our problems.

still waiting for an answer miley...

How did the Obama auto bailout help GM in a way that going through the normal bankruptcy channels would not have? "

So you have no rebuttal and thus give the typical divisive response. Consistent.

Um, because I do not support communism or socialism I am being divisive? Ok.
