The discussion was the 24 billion your dumbass Tea Party people sucked out of our economy.<quoted text>
So, what you're saying is, if the government took all the money out of the economy, we'd have a stronger economy?
Just how nuts are you?
Here's how the real world works:
You have ten dollars. I cost you two dollars and fifty cents, of which I give back to you two dollars. Now, you have nine dollars and fifty cents. According to the way our government calculates the economy, you have twelve dollars.
Like I say to the television when one of those ghosts-are-real shows is on...
Show me the twelve dollars.
During this time, the government was taking money out of the economy (taxation continued) but since you frickin morons shut down the government,34 billion was not put back in.
Do you get it it yet, dumbass.
Now your theory about government taxation & spending affecting the economy is flawed.
You only look at the idea that not all government spending goes into our economy.
Your ignore that not all government revenues come out out of our economy. The most glaring example is spending borrowed money. If money is taxed that would not have been spent, then that is not taken out of the economy.
During this recovery, the amount of money added to the economy by the government far exceeded the amount of money it took out of the economy.
