<quoted text>The answer to your 1st question is paradoxical. They have spent too much is why deficit keeps going up OR they haven't spent enough which is why the debt ceiling keeps going up! Next; are we including the cost of mega golf outings?
TWO: please define your meaning of "democratically sponsored bill". A few points tho would still be that the last budget expired April of 09. The Dems had control of BOTH Houses AND the WH for 2 yrs. That time period is included in WHY has No budget been presented to the Senate floor after being presented by the House of Congress & why were they were stopped by Harry Reid from reaching a floor vote?
. Talk about being off subject- the subject is " Where did all the Republicans Go", and I want to say-- they are all over at Boehner's place protesting Anything proposed by anyone, about anything mentioned! LOL

barock turned recession to global depression by a major assault on American business.

The two major components of production in any industry is labor and energy. barock has dramatically raised the cost of labor with 0failurecare and a host of other initiatives like not being able to do criminal background checks of potential hires.

Not opening keystone and golfing from behind has kept oil prices higher than necessary as well.

It's also turned the arab spring to winter.

<quoted text> My response was all about this post....BTW, President Obama inherited a $10.6 Trillion dollar deficit, plus the two ongoing wars, that GW kept charged and off the books......You don't get your own facts, Pops......Estimates of the wars expenses run $4-5 Trillion Dollars, including aftercare of the wounded.....
barock's solution to Iraq was surrender on all fronts.

It's a good thing Harry Truman wasn't a pussycrat like barock.

You should follow along....CEO's MORE OPTIMISTIC ABOUT ECONOMIC FUTURE...AP(12-6-13) Washington - A survey of chief executives at the largest U.S. companies shows a growing number are optimistic about economic prospects for the next six months and expect to boost hiring.....The Business Roundtable says it's survey measuring CEO outlook rose to 84.5 in the Ocvtober -December quarter. That's up from 79.1 in the July-September quarter.....The group is an association of chief executives at the 200 largest U.S. companies. Any reading above 50 suggests expansion..... The survey noted that 34 percent of the executives expected that their companies will increase hiring in the next six months, up from 32 percent in the previous survey......

Those numbers are not good. They are OK. They certainly are not the kind of numbers you'd NORMALLY see in a recovery, especially one that's half a decade old. This is because we are not recovering. The job market is anemic at best. A rise from 32 to 34% still sucks. That means 2/3 of companies are going to stay the same or downsize to deal with 0failurecare.

If the Fed stopped printing money tomorrow, barock's house of cards would implode. It's a good thing we get to reconcile the planet's overdrawn checkbook... else we'd be Greece. The states with low unemployment are drilling oil. The one's declaring bankruptcy keep doling out generational welfare and opening more prisons.

not true about labor costs, they're down.... http://www.bls.gov/news.release/prod2.nr0.htm
Plus we've only had obamacare for a few months and we won't know the affects on labor costs totally for some time but it for sure made insurance more expensive for employers who pay part of their employees coverage. No problem though, they just cut hours, positions, or move their business to the south and right to work states. I'm sure all the illegals that Biden said are "American citizens illegal or not" are driving down labor costs too.... oh yeah and they try to use the labor cost to calculate inflation too. Funny how they ignore the EPI !

let's see...record corporate profits are reported and obama signs in new corporate tax loopholes(breaking his campaign promise to close them), all while there are less jobs that pay less, the dollar is inflated for anybody who buys housing, food, fuel, and healthcare. On top of that we all got our taxes raised when the average household income is down (another broken campaign promise).
What do you think their going to say??? God forbid any of pay attention to the reality of what these guys have actually done.

"Corporate profits reached a record high in the third quarter, according to a Commerce Department report out Thursday. And the financial sector is doing particularly well. Financial companies accounted for all of the net growth in domestic corporate profits during the third quarter, according to analysis by Haver Analytics cited by The New York Times. Catherine Rampell writes:" see how that worked domestically? If looking at the reality of the present situation instead of believing some corporate promise that stinks to high hell when you look at the facts makes me bitter, so be it. http://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/2217414/
Since when did huffpost become a right wing "nutter blog"???????

right! Most of ther dolestic profit is a result of government spending. Financial institutions make interest and charge fees for transactions. Like food cards, every time its used the banks make money. People are starving and they get to report record profits....nice...

Agreed.

The problem isn't that the banks don't want to lend though. They do. Banks make more money in fees originating the loans than the interest. There are very few borrowers with good credit that want to borrow. Everyday my useless, overpaid postman puts an inch-thick load of junk mail in my box. There's always an offer to re-fi in it.

Here in NY it takes 3 years for a foreclosure. That's about 2 years too long.
