But you see we have a debt increase ceiling coming up in a couple of weeks, the Republican party ripped into by the Tea Birchers who will not pass up another chance to hold Americans hostage, another self inflicted Tea Party crises.
Pity the fools come mid term.
The senate run by Harry Reid has blocked all of the houses budget bills.
All this could end tomorrow if Reid( bridge to no where except my properties) would let there be a vote and your buddy Obama would sign it.
Hey why worry ,you are still going to get that welfare check this month.

The 113th congress has not passed any budget bills.

And that bridge to no where comment is just as ignorant, the house had a chance to lower the deficit by $160 million by defunding the bridge to no-where. Did they, LMAO, what do you think, more importantly what did Republican Senator Stevens think about that, ask a Katrina victim what they think of Mr. Stevens.

The Institute for Supply Management said its index of factory activity rose last month to 54.2, the highest since June 2011. Any reading above 50 indicates growth. The report showed a jump in new orders, higher production and more hiring at factories. Manufacturing has grown for three straight months, indicating that factories could help the economy after slumping through most of 2012.

The University of Michigan measure of consumer sentiment rose to 77.6, the second straight monthly increase. The rebound in consumer confidence, seen in both the Michigan survey and another survey from Conference Board, suggests that some consumers have begun to adjust to smaller paychecks.

Consumers increased spending 0.2 percent in January from December but cut back on major purchases such as autos and appliances. Income plunged 3.6 percent, though it followed a jump in December driven by dividends and bonuses paid early to avoid higher income taxes. The increase in Social Security taxes also lowered after-tax income.

Spending on U.S. construction projects fell in January by the largest amount in 18 months, the Commerce Department said. Still, that the decline followed a nearly 10 percent increase in construction spending in 2012, the first annual gain after five years of declines.

Investors seemed to focus Friday on the gains in manufacturing. Stocks rebounded after the ISM survey was released. The Dow Jones industrial average closed up 35 points, overcoming an early loss of 116 points.

One reason for optimism is that the job market is looking better.

Employers have added an average of 200,000 jobs a month from November through January. That was up from about 150,000 in the previous three months. And a drop in weekly applications for unemployment benefits suggests that employers have stepped up hiring further in February.

Some employers are even willing to pay more: After stagnating since the recession ended, hourly pay has been rising faster than inflation for the past three months. If such pay increases continue, they will help blunt the impact of the higher Social Security taxes.

Manufacturing grew in February at the fastest pace in 20 months, according to a report Friday from the Institute for Supply Management. And a survey from the University of Michigan showed that consumer sentiment rose last month to its highest level since November.

The two reports follow other data that show strength in job growth and the housing market. Americans even spent a bit more in January compared with December, despite a sharp drop in income that partly reflected higher taxes.

"Consumers are spending, confidence is rising and manufacturing activity is accelerating," Joel Naroff, president of Naroff Economic Advisors, said in a note to clients. "Just about all of today's reports point to an economy on the rise."

<quoted text>Yes but obama has been the worst. And the republicans are at fault for some of it. But they need to put the foot down and stop him from spending any more money. Something has got to give before we crash. Hate to say it but i believe a crash is coming.
A crash IS coming. But if you think Romney would have stopped the out of control spending in our government, you are dead wrong. Bush was too loose with our money too.

I liken the sitution to a strong wind (republicans) blowing through the forest (our country). The strong wind will knock down some trees (parts of our Constitution) here and there and we won't think much of it because that's just what wind does to weak trees. The forest changes very slowly, but it still changes nonetheless. Eventually the forest is totally changed and the people didn't see it happening, so they did nothing to stop it. They just wondered what happened to it after it's too late.

Then there's a tornado (democrats). It rips through the forest quickly destroying everything in it's path.

The point is, does it really matter who we allow to destroy this country?

Of course Ron Paul wouldnt have changed anything of saved the Republic. Ron Paul talked the talk but he really didnt walk the walk. Ron Paul brought home plenty of pork to his district. Even if you had a perfect president those 535 other elected parasites wont ever practice fiscal responsibility. The once great Republic is headed in a uncontrolable downward sprial.

Kinda like the roadside litter. The Volinteer Fire DEPT wanted ME and MY family to participate in picking up the trash along the roadside. I told them We do our part in that WE dont discard litter on the public land. If everyone was like US there wouldnt be any litter at all. They only asked one time.

Those news outlets don't always tell you the truth. Fox does, they do try to tell you truth so you make up your on mind, not be decieved by the other news outlets. In the first place, I would say you don't watch fox news because if you did you would know they ain't into fear mongering they tell the truth. Somebody like you wouldn't know the actual truth if it bit you on the butt. I like knowing the truth, then i make up my own mind. One thing i do hate it be lied to. I watch those other outlets and sometimes they don't do their jobs and get their stories wrong. You have you opinion, we have ours.
