Barack Obama, our next President

The proof is in the pudding over the Bush tax cuts. They were followed by a record 52 straight months of job creation, producing 8 million new jobs, with the unemployment rate falling to 4.4%. Business investment spending, which had declined for 9 straight quarters, reversed and increased 6.7% per quarter, producing all those new jobs.
Because of that increased investment, labor productivity soared by 2.5% annually from 2003 to 2007, higher than the averages of the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s. As a result, real after tax income per capita increased by more than 11%.
Manufacturing output soared to its highest level in 20 years. The stock market revived, creating almost $7 trillion in new shareholder wealth. From 2003 to 2007, the S&P 500 almost doubled. After the Bush tax cuts started in 2001, quickly ending the 2001 recession, the economy continued to grow for another 73 months. From 2000 to 2007, real GDP grew by more than 17%, meaning an additional $2.1 trillion for the American people.

The President cannot call out the National Guard without a request from the Governor.

No, I want the economy to grow at least 3-4%. The current situation of puny growth is totally unacceptable.

No pot shots, just facts. Facts something you know nothing about, you are BS. To date know one has given an intelligent answer as to why any American should pay a higher Federal Income tax rate than some one else. That's like saying pro0perty taxes should be leveled based on one's income, or sales taxes should be higher on those who earn more.
Do you ever think before you post.

We all pay from the same chart.

The Bush economy built on debt & on the house of cards in real estate & mortgage securities that led to the worst recession in 80 years?

A Bush economy that took us from a balanced budget & on the road to paying off our debt to the doubling the debt.

Maybe in your right whiner la la land that is a good economy but not in reality.

Many public sectors jobs are unproductive, unnecessary, and a drain on the economy.
The financial crisis and resulting recession brought record-breaking declines in state revenues; the primary response to the hole blown in state budgets was deep cuts in education, health, human services, and other areas. Cuts of this magnitude are job killers. They directly eliminate jobs in both the private and public sectors, and indirectly cost additional jobs by reducing consumer buying power. In these ways, excessively large spending cuts make recessions deeper and longer than they would be otherwise.

Here’s how the economic damage from spending cuts happens: when lawmakers cut services they end contracts with private sector businesses and reduce spending on private sector goods, leading to layoffs or lower wages among private sector workers. When lawmakers cut services they also lay off teachers, firefighters, police officers, and other public sector workers (over 650,000 state and local government workers have lost their jobs since the recession hit the states). In turn, private AND public sector workers who are laid off, or who see their pay reduced, buy less and further reduce economic activity.

Deep cuts to state services also erode the foundations of a strong economy, in both the short and long term. Spending on education, transportation, and public safety has been shown to stimulate economic growth in the short run and is among the most important determinants of economic growth and job quality in the long run. Research also shows that expanding and improving upon these investments through well-targeted tax increases (in other words, finding new money to pay for better services) stimulates income and job growth.

Thankfully, the people themselves are making their voices heard. A recent example is in Rhode Island where the Governor had to back down from calling the state Christmas Tree and Holiday Tree when the people of Rhode Island made it clear they weren't going to stand for it.
Good for those people to speak up, we have all sat back and played dead, it's time for all to stand up for our rights.

Former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich argued on NBC's "Meet the Press" Sunday that if Hillary Clinton runs for president in 2016, today's GOP would be outmatched.

"If their competitor in '16 is going to be Hillary Clinton, supported by Bill Clinton and presumably a still-relatively popular President Barack Obama, trying to win that will be truly the Super Bowl," Gingrich said. "And the Republican Party today is incapable of competing at that level."
