The government owned a lot of land, especially after the Louisiana Purchase. They sold it to private citizens and at the same time Jackson blocked every spending bill he could. In 1835 the debt was paid and there was a surplus. Jackson had dissolved the National Bank, so the extra was divided among the states and was completely spent (and then some) in a year - which was a major cause of the 6 year depression that started in 1837.
Thank you. I continue to learn, and appreciate a kinder schooling.

A Wisconsin couple’s dying wish has finally come true…25 years later.

Norma and Angus Beaton pledged $1.7 million to four local charities in their will, the Green Bay Press Gazette reports. But the Green Bay, Wisc. couple had one caveat. If Norma died after Angus, then the money would not be distributed for 25 years so that she would have enough money to live off of.

Angus passed away in 1987 and Norma died just nine weeks later.

But now that the time limit has passed four local charities in the “Badger State” have cause to celebrate.

There were a few here, I don't shop on that day but it was downplayed in the news as a handful of people who were not Walmart employees. They're scared to lose their jobs. But, it's a beginning of something big, no doubt about it.
Wal-Mart's poverty wages force employees to rely on $2.66 billion in government help every year, or about $420,000 per store. In state after state, Wal-Mart employees are the top recipients of Medicaid. As many as 80 percent of workers in Wal-Mart stores use food stamps.
My mother refuses to shop at her local Walmart. However, if she is out of town, she will go to a Walmart "just to look." That way no one from her hometown sees her there. Dad shops there, but refers to it as the "W" store. In a small town where choices are limited, they really have the townspeople over a barrel.

Enlightening information. I'm interested in what you would propose. Health care is a major concern in our country. Is there another solution? I've spent much time working in the ER; by law we cannot turn people away if they do not have insurance. So, their uninsured care is either covered by charitable donations to the hospital, attempted to be collected by the hospital, or written off/absorbed into the hospital's profit. I live in a community with a population of just over 11,000, median income of $30,000. I can't imagine the hospital has that great of a profit margin. Our major employer is a maximum security state forensic facility, a community college, Tyson Food, and Walmart. The rest are farmers and ranchers who have suffered with a horrific drought.
And, the Governor doesn't want to expand Medicaid.
More competition and less government interference such as mandates and high taxation in health insurance would have reduced costs. ObamaCare will drive up the costs while reducing quality and access. The uninsured also drive up our private premiums. Making health insurance portable like car insurance and not tied to a job would have been helpful too. And then just tackle those who couldn't get it because of pre-existing conditions or couldn't afford private insurance. Instead, ObamaCare throws out the baby with the bathwater and the full consequences won't be felt until he's just about out of office. Realization of the full economic disaster will likely hit by 2020.

CNN poll: If fiscal cliff talks fail, Republicans will be to blame

As for the sticking point between the parties over an increase in taxes for the wealthiest Americans, 56% say taxes on wealthy people should be kept high so the government can use their money for programs to help lower-income people, with 36% saying taxes on such high earners should be kept low because they invest their money in the private sector and that helps the economy and creates jobs.

. Are you sure it has nothing to do with the lack of marketable skill the people that work their have? How much should someone get paid for taking stuff out of a box and putting it on a shelf or pushing a shopping cart across a lot? What about Mc donalds , should they get 20 an hour for asking if you want fries with that?
Are all libs as dumb as you? Never mind I know that answer.

You're nuts. They could get a second job. Then they wouldn't need public assistance. Every one I know who works at WalMart is happy working there, at least as much as working anywhere. You loony libtards think every business should pay $20 an hour for everyone and offer full health insurance. It's not their job to babysit their employees. You libtards are going to destroy this country with your Santa Claus politics!

Remember, Obama isn't interested in "improving" anything. He and the Pelosi Goons are ONLY interested in blaming others for their abject Failures. Think 10 year olds but with much more demonic motivations.

Are Americans stupid enough to settle for Obama's Orwellian Nightmare?.......Yes. Americans proved they are too stupid to handle self government on Nov 6th.

52% proved they could care less about their own childrens futures. They voted for their children to be pathetic tax slaves to Big Brother.

Starbucks, Target, Home Depot, UPS, Whole Foods, Costco, Lands End:
all provide healthcare benefits to parttime workers who work 20 hours.
The government is subsidizing your precious Walleyworld! You are paying their employees healthcare!
And, you call me nuts.

Yes, TSM, the perpetual moron, thinks the Republicans should continue to vote NOT to help us recover.

The stimulus bill took Bush's 700,000 a month job losses to job gains.

I have news, if the Republicans try that crap again, they will be blamed & then lose even more seats in 2014.
