No, I want the economy to grow at least 3-4%. The current situation of puny growth is totally unacceptable.

No pot shots, just facts. Facts something you know nothing about, you are BS. To date know one has given an intelligent answer as to why any American should pay a higher Federal Income tax rate than some one else. That's like saying pro0perty taxes should be leveled based on one's income, or sales taxes should be higher on those who earn more.
Do you ever think before you post.

The Bush economy built on debt & on the house of cards in real estate & mortgage securities that led to the worst recession in 80 years?

A Bush economy that took us from a balanced budget & on the road to paying off our debt to the doubling the debt.

Maybe in your right whiner la la land that is a good economy but not in reality.

The financial crisis and resulting recession brought record-breaking declines in state revenues; the primary response to the hole blown in state budgets was deep cuts in education, health, human services, and other areas. Cuts of this magnitude are job killers. They directly eliminate jobs in both the private and public sectors, and indirectly cost additional jobs by reducing consumer buying power. In these ways, excessively large spending cuts make recessions deeper and longer than they would be otherwise.

Here’s how the economic damage from spending cuts happens: when lawmakers cut services they end contracts with private sector businesses and reduce spending on private sector goods, leading to layoffs or lower wages among private sector workers. When lawmakers cut services they also lay off teachers, firefighters, police officers, and other public sector workers (over 650,000 state and local government workers have lost their jobs since the recession hit the states). In turn, private AND public sector workers who are laid off, or who see their pay reduced, buy less and further reduce economic activity.

Deep cuts to state services also erode the foundations of a strong economy, in both the short and long term. Spending on education, transportation, and public safety has been shown to stimulate economic growth in the short run and is among the most important determinants of economic growth and job quality in the long run. Research also shows that expanding and improving upon these investments through well-targeted tax increases (in other words, finding new money to pay for better services) stimulates income and job growth.

Thankfully, the people themselves are making their voices heard. A recent example is in Rhode Island where the Governor had to back down from calling the state Christmas Tree and Holiday Tree when the people of Rhode Island made it clear they weren't going to stand for it.
Good for those people to speak up, we have all sat back and played dead, it's time for all to stand up for our rights.

Former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich argued on NBC's "Meet the Press" Sunday that if Hillary Clinton runs for president in 2016, today's GOP would be outmatched.

"If their competitor in '16 is going to be Hillary Clinton, supported by Bill Clinton and presumably a still-relatively popular President Barack Obama, trying to win that will be truly the Super Bowl," Gingrich said. "And the Republican Party today is incapable of competing at that level."

Good news for Americans alas sad for tea party
The US added 146,000 jobs in November, official data shows, as the economy seemingly shrugged off storm Sandy.
The unexpectedly strong performance brought the unemployment rate down to
a four-year low of 7.7% of the workforce.
The jobs figure was well above most analysts' expectations and continued a recent surge that begun in July.
Weekly jobs claims registered a sharp but short-lived jump in the number claiming benefits in the states ravaged by the storm last month.

Government at all levels must reduce spending to meet available revenues. Unfortunately, government tends to cut in all the wrong places.

In addition, government pensions are a time bomb that will explode on future generations, a prime reason for contracting out as many services as possible.

Perhaps, in tough times, government employees should consent to pay freezes and/or pay cuts to maintain employment levels, regardless of any contracts.

Just like those in the private sector.
