EARTH TO CAROL! The economy has shown improvement since Obama took office but it could be better except the GOP has been blocking any kind economic stimulus. They're too busy with vote after useless vote trying to repeal the ACA without even any proposals to replace it. But idiots like you will constantly blame the person trying to make the economy better instead of those that are actively trying to sabotage it for their own ends and the American people be damned.
Republicans know we're broke. And when you're broke, you stop spending and cut out unnecessary expenses in your budget.

Democrats think money grows on trees and you can spend your way out of debt.

However, before leaving the subject of global warming hysteria, if I may post just one more article.

"A prolonged decline in solar output will begin sometime around 2040 and subject the Earth to global cooling that will last 200-250 years, scientists at Russia’s Pulkovo Observatory report."

The economy still sucks, liar. So what if it improved a tiny bit? Thanks to you Democrats and your Obamcare, people are still getting screwed. Disposable income is down and now more people will be losing jobs. You think the U-6 going up is a good thing.
How is Sweden doing, dingbat?
In Connecticut: "In the first half of this year, the number of Connecticut homes with foreclosure filings jumped nearly 39 percent compared with the same period a year ago, a new report Thursday shows"
You are a liar and an idiot!
why not put the blame for the state of the U.S. economy and lack of jobs where it belongs: CORPORATE AMERICA

Outsourcing (or offshoring) is a bigger contributor to unemployment in the U.S. than laziness.

Since 2000, U.S. multinationals have cut 2.9 million jobs here while increasing employment overseas by 2.4 million. This is likely just the tip of the iceberg as multinational corporations account for only about 20% of the labor force.

OH I forgot most CEO's are conservative republicans, so you ignore those facts.

or you could blame wealth redistribution, to the top 1%

In 2010, 20% of the people held approximately 88% of the net worth in the U.S. The top 1% alone held 35% of all net worth.

The bottom 80% of people held only 12% of net worth in 2010. In 1983, the bottom 80% held 18% of net worth.

but as usual, you republicans ignore facts and are easily swayed to vote against your own best interests

no Democrats understand that restricting cuts to only 13% of the budget is not going to get you anywhere.

Budget breakdown
Defense: 23%
Social Security: 19.6%
Mandatory: 17%
Non-Security discretionary: 13.5%
Medicare & other Health: 8.5%
Interest: 5.5%

when 86.5% of the federal budget is off limits to cuts, you will never lower our debt

Where was your concern when President George W Bush ran record deficits and kept the cost of the Iraq War off the books and handed out record tax cuts to the rich?

trickle economics is a joke, especially on middle class republicans who are too stupid to realize they are being ripped off

They don't understand, they just want to cut services to the poor, women, the elderly, and defund education. And if they can find more money for defense spending all the more better.

President Obama was scheduled to hold a press conference today to speak about the racially motivated murders of the jogger and the 88 year old WWII Veteran. However, after his handlers were informed by Al Sharpton, Race Baiter Czar, that neither victim was wearing a hoodie and that they were killed by black teenagers, the press conference was cancelled.

This certainly bears reposting-

Republican Governors: Shhh, Don’t Call Our Obamacare Money Obamacare!

A variety of Republican governors have sought federal funds under Obamacare, many of them to expand Medicaid eligibility for more residents, a centerpiece of the law that the Supreme Court made optional for states last year.

But shhh! Don’t call it Obamacare, they say, for they despise that law.

In the latest example, vociferous Obamacare critic and Texas Gov. Rick Perry is seeking roughly $100 million in federal funds under a program set up under Obamacare, called Community First Choice, to help states provide home-based health care to chronically ill Medicaid patients, as Politico reported this week.

Perry’s office said Politico’s story was “not accurate” and pointed TPM to a Texas Tribune article in which the governor’s aides downplay the connection of the funds to Obamacare, and noted that what they’re seeking is not the broader Medicaid expansion to extend eligibility to more low-income residents.

“The bottom line is it has nothing to do with Obamacare,” said Perry spokeswoman Allison Castle.

Only it has everything to do with Obamacare. As the Department of Health and Human Services explained last February, the new Community First Choice program was explicitly set up under the Affordable Care Act and offers federal funds so states can pay a higher reimbursement rate to providers of home-based care. The aim was to ratchet back an incentive for ill patients to go to a nursing facility when they can be cared for at home.

Perry is in good company among Republican governors, many of whom want billions of federal funds under the law’s Medicaid expansion, but don’t want to call it Obamacare.

Dr. Ben Carson is a conservative star on the rise, but at least one of his policy ideas might cause the Republican leadership to do a double-take. In an interview with The Daily Caller, Carson said he opposed the invasions of both Iraq and Afghanistan.

That's because you are a libtard. Fiscal conservative my ass. Homer never met a Federal program he didn't like. If so name one other than defense which is in the constitution, by the way, unlike all your libtard feel good policies.
