Incomes Have Dropped Twice as Much During the 'Recovery' as During the Recession
President Obama likes to talk about income inequality, but what matters far more is the actual income of the typical American.
And how has the typical American household income fared on Obama's watch? Well, the economic "recovery" has now spanned an Olympiad, and during that time the typical American household income has not only dropped—it has dropped more than twice as much as it did during the recession.
http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/incomes-h...
and the hack author anderson missed some things

http://www.moneynews.com/StreetTalk/us-income...

"Incomes kept falling during the 36-month period since then, dropping to $50,964 in June 2012."

"the most recent month for which figures are available (June 2013)
$52,098"

so from june in 2012 to june 2013 American household income went up by 1134 dollars.

yep the hack author missed that.

but it is not the first time anderson has shown he does not know what he is talking about.

http://www.newrepublic.com/blog/jonathan-chai...

"Anderson proceeds to cite the Congressional Budget Office as evidence that the cost of the doc fix is being used to help fund the Affordable Care Act. He writes:

The CBO begs to differ:“The provisions that would result in the largest budget savings include these: permanent reductions in the annual updates to Medicare’s payment rates for most services in the fee-for-service sector ... yielding budgetary savings of $186 billion over 10 years.” That’s the physician pay cut."

" Here is the entire quote. I've bold-faced the part omitted by Anderson:

Permanent reductions in the annual updates to Medicare’s payment rates for most services in the fee-for-service sector (other than physicians’ services), yielding budgetary savings of $186 billion over 10 years.
Did you catch that? Anderson used ellipses to remove the part of the quote that disproves his entire claim. He removed the part that says "other than physicians' services," and then wrote, "That's the physician pay cut."

"But figures like Anderson are simply not up to the job. And once some factual misapprehension has made its way into the right-wing echo chamber, it's nearly impossible to dislodge. The same basic phenomenon can be seen is debates over climate change, supply-side economics, and other issues. You have a whole ideological movement that, to a substantial degree, relies upon the pseudo-expertise of cranks and hacks."

"Thomas allegedly said that there “is no way for us, as militiamen, to save this country, to save Georgia, without doing something that’s highly highly illegal. Murder. That’s fucking illegal, but it’s gotta be done,” Thomas allegedly said.

“When it comes time to saving the Constitution, that means some people gotta die,” Thomas allegedly said."

"During one of the group’s meetings in September, which was recorded by the confidential source, Crump arrived and said that he would like to make 10 pounds of ricin and disperse it in various United States cities, including Atlanta. Crump described a scenario for dispersing the ricin in Atlanta in which the toxin would be blown from a car traveling on the interstates"

so those "patriots" can defend the Constitution by spreading biological toxins on the roads ?

sounds like some of those "patriots" need profiling for terrorist acts.

..........
What did the CBO forget to include in this report?
..........
In February, the Congressional Budget Office published its latest report on the "estimated impact" of the stimulus.
Although it had originally estimated the stimulus would cost $787 billion, CBO now says it will cost $831 billion.
In the second quarter of 2012, CBO estimates, somewhere between 200,000 to 1.2 million people have jobs they otherwise would not have were it not for the stimulus.
Assuming, optimistically, that the number is 1.2 million, that means each of those jobs cost taxpayers $692,500.
As time goes on, the maximum number of jobs sustained by Obama's stimulus will decline rapidly.
By the first quarter of 2013, it will sustain between 100,000 and 600,000 jobs, says CBO.
If it is 600,000, each of those jobs will have cost taxpayers $1,385,000.
By the fourth quarter of 2013, the maximum number of jobs it sustains will be 400,000 — at a cost to taxpayers of $2,077,500 per job.
It is true that Obama entered office in the midst of a deep recession.
But, according to the National Bureau of Economic Research, that recession ended in June 2009, over four years ago.

obummer, a five year failure
and you are using false logic to claim for example that a stimulus payment of ten million dollars to rebuild a road by ten men,means that the individual workers got one million dollars each.
you forget the value of the rebuilding of the road.

a road that needed to be worked on.

but while your at it.
the stimulus contained tax cuts for businesses.
if it is such a expensive failure the right wing should be clamoring for the removal of the tax cuts as they did not work.

so which is it a failure or a success?

Hey, remember that wronger-than-wrong Wall Street Journal editorial asserting that even taking every dollar from the rich wouldn't be enough to close the deficit? The one that attempts to prove a demonstrably false point but winds up demonstrating the opposite? Mitch McConnell, among others on Capitol Hill, is talking it up:

Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), the minority leader, is also among those who have pointed to a recent Wall Street Journal op-ed that said that taking every taxable dollar of top earning Americans still wouldn’t fully take care of the current deficit.

The good news is that once they learn that the math in this this editorial is clearly erroneous, McConnell and the other Republicans will stop citing it and will alter their position on the tax debate. Right?

McConnell's Lap Dog Barks

The other day, I pointed out Mitch McConnell's sneaky, dog whistle answer to the question of whether President Obama is Muslim:

To say that you "take him at his word" means two things. First of all, it suggests that the president's word is the only information we have to go on here. Of course, that is absurd. Second, if further suggests that, the evidence being weak or inconclusive, McConnell is taking the high road by accepting Obama's testimony.

Wall Street Journal blogger James Taranto sticks up for McConnell:

Chait makes it look as if McConnell raised the question of the president's religion, when in fact the full context makes clear Gregory brought it up and McConnell tried his best to avoid the subject.[extensive quotes of McConnell refsing to address the question of whether Obama is a Muslim]...

At this point, McConnell states, "The president says he's a Christian, I take him at his word." What would Chait have had him say? "The president says he's a Christian. But don't take him at his word, look at the evidence ..." Then what? Chait says it's "absurd" to think that "the president's word is

If you want to put the question to rest, you answer, "Of course he is a Christian." Taranto seems to think the only way to answer the question is to begin your answer with the phrase, "The president says he's a Christian." The whole point is that you don't frame the answer this way.

Taranto also thinks Obama's say-so is the only information here. How about the fact that he converted to Christianity? And joined a church? And attended that church for years? Those facts are a matter of public record. McConnell's answer is a way of suggesting that the answer is unknown but he's generously giving Obama the benefit of the doubt.

"As of November 5, the day before the 2012 presidential election, Morris predicted on his website and in an article in The Hill that the Republican candidate, Mitt Romney, would win the Presidency in a landslide "approaching the magnitude of Obama's against McCain."

Republican Stimulus Hypocrisy Should Enrage Every Struggling American
When assessing which human characteristic is more disgusting, besides pedophilia and murder, hypocrisy and lying usually rank near the top of the list for most people. In fact, in the Christian bible, Jesus Christ condemned liars and hypocrites (Mt 24:51, 15:7) that he claimed were destined for eternal damnation, so one would expect so-called conservative Christian Republicans to avoid hypocrisy and lying to save their souls and maintain a semblance of integrity. For the past three years, Republicans have been fierce opponents of using government funds to stimulate the economy and create jobs as a matter of course, and they have, without exception, denounced President Obama’s stimulus they claim “doesn’t work, and didn’t work” to create jobs or stimulate the economy. Every time a Republican makes that assertion, they prove themselves to be liars and hypocrites, and John McCain and Paul Ryan provide the evidence to prove it.
The presumptive Republican vice-presidential nominee has been one of the harshest critics of using federal money to stimulate the economy, and last week in this column it was reported that although Ryan railed and voted against the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (stimulus), he begged the energy department in four separate letters for tens-of-millions of dollars to, as he put it,“create new jobs over the 3 year grant period and the subsequent 3 years, and help stimulate the economy” in Wisconsin. Now, one instance of condemning and voting against an economic stimulus and then begging for money is reason enough to impugn Ryan as a hypocrite, but just nine years ago, Ryan openly advocated for a third stimulus package during the Bush administration.
In the early 2000s, George W. Bush argued for more stimulus to boost a slow economy, and instead of condemning Bush’s request as a “monstrosity,”“wasteful spending,” and something he “opposed because it doesn’t work, it didn’t work,” Ryan said,“What we’re trying to accomplish today with the passage of this third stimulus package is to create jobs and help the unemployed.” Mr. Ryan also told an MSNBC interviewer that “What we’re trying to accomplish is to pass the kinds of legislation that when they’ve passed in the past have grown the economy and gotten people back to work.” It is curious that Ryan’s economic analysis was entirely different in 2002 when his argument was,“We’ve got to get the engine of economic growth growing again because we now know, because of recession, we don’t have the revenues that we wanted, we don’t have the revenues we need, to fix Medicare, to fix Social Security, to fix these issues. We’ve got to get Americans back to work. Then the surpluses come back, then the jobs come back. That is the constructive answer we’re trying to accomplish here on, yes, a bipartisan basis. I urge members to drop the demagoguery and to pass this bill to help us work together to get the American people back to work and help those people who’ve lost their jobs.” The Bush stimulus passed, included a jobless benefit extension, and resulted in checks going out to millions of Americans in 2002.

CDC Study Contradicts Obama On Gun Violence

You probably didn’t hear about the results of a CDC study on gun violence ordered by the Obama administration to bolster its position on gun control.
That’s because it didn't bolster Obama’s position.
So it was quietly filed away.
Investor’s Business Daily dug it up, but you probably won’t hear about it on the evening news or the front page of the New York Times.

"the estimated number of defensive uses of guns ranges "from about 500,000 to more than 3 million per year"

yet the CDC research agenda that those numbers come from extrapolation of 19 surveys.
from 2001.
hardly current
the research agenda merely lists the questions.
by no means is it a finished report.

so your hack author who is not listed by name in the article can be a shill working for the NRA.

the research will take 3 to 5 yrs.

so no report is being hidden by anyone.
