If the President would stop spending money long enough to balance the budget and begin to lower our debt, I would consider that a great thing to do.

He might actually stop spending so much, now that he no longer has to worry about his voting base.

Yes, I'm referring to the 47% that would vote for him even if he got a swastika tattooed on his forehead and had an affair with Vladimir Putin.

If any of you idiots think the economy is going to repair itself you are just crazy. Right now, today, corporate America has record earning profits in the bank. Historic earnings I might add. Measured in the trillions of dollars. Apple Co. alone has about $80B in the bank and everyone of their popular products are manufactured in Asia. And corporate Ameica need not change a single thing to keep making record profits. They don't need to hire. They don't need to expand. They don't need to merge nor acquire nor conduct a hostile takeover. They can change nothing and just keep on keeping on throwing money in the bank.

The economic recovery of America is a 20 year process. If done smart. If we don't do it smart it will take longer. And the smart way to do it is to invest. Invest in the education and training of our citizens. Especially our youngest generation.

I can't disagree with that but you have to realize that the $80B Apple has in the bank isn't driving our economy by creating jobs or increasing consumer spending. Jobs are created by small business owners and its the small business owners that are concerned about their future with Obama's medical plan hanging over their heads. Most start-up businesses struggle with cash flow and over-head expenses as it is. The thought of having to provide health insurance for their employees keeps their spending at a minimum which is why our economy continues to struggle even though interest rates are low and the stock market has done well over the last year or more.

Sad thing is you can educate them all you want, but they don't think like we did as kids, they were brought up I want want want, they think things should be handed to them, and all this education won't help a thing if no one is hiring!

We have been "investing" in education for over 40 years. It's seems the more we "invest", the less "return" we see.

Since corporations are making record profits, and the US has the highest corporate tax rate, doesn't that mean the treasury is receiving record tax revenue? One might even say "historic" tax revenue. Tax revenue is not the problem. The government spends too much. We need more tax payers, not more taxes.

Politicians look at tax revenue,(other people's money), as something they are entitled to. They say tax cuts have to be "paid for".

Ronald Reagan turned the economy around in 8 years. I believe he also lowered taxes in the process. Reagan hit the nail on the head when he said, "government is not the solution, government is the problem".

Thats my whole point. If you give Apple a tax break then don't expect that to create jobs. That savings will just go into their bank savings account. " Small Business" is not defined by profit nor corporate campus size nor product or services. Small business is defined by the number of employees and the magic number is 50 or less. Donald Trump is a small business. And he realizes the tax benefits of that definition. He qualifies for special considerations for government secured loans. And he qualifies for favortism on government contracts. As do all Small Business owners.

President does not want to raise taxes on small business owners. His proposed tax rates do not effect 98% of America or business owners. It wont change the fact that Donald is a small business but he will have to pay more on his personal earnings.

In order to balance the budget and start paying down the debt there has to be some increase in tax revenue. Its unavoidable. And if there is no increase in revenue then don't expect a balanced budget. It wont happen.

Education is the solution. We could bring all the cell phone manufacturing jobs back from China and that would provide about 12000 to 15000 minimum wage jobs for our economy. And thats it. We need new innovation. We need our young generation to have engineering visions of a hovercar and teleporters. And we need to invest in our young generation for sciences.

We need a whole new generation of "Steve Jobs Creators".
