The debt is definitely not lower. That would be saying we have a budget surplus. The reality is, these idiots are screaming bloody murder about the sequester even though it will raise the deficit by a trillion a year. Both parties suck but the Democrats are definitely worse. If we follow the Democratic philosophy, every state and local government will eventually go broke, like Detroit.

FDR offered working people a New Deal. All Obama has for working people is a Raw Deal.

Obamacare was designed to benefit Obama's non-working welfare recipient class supporters by providing them with free medical care. It does that very well. They get Medicaid. Free.

Obamacare was also designed to punish the mostly white working class, who are by default the rank and file voters of the Republican Party. Workers will be forced to pay for insurance that is more expensive, more restrictive, and that pays far less of their doctors bill than what they already had. Obamacare's rules that employers with fewer than 50 employees do not have to provide insurance will cause many people to be fired from their jobs. Employers with say 53 employees will fire 4 of them to get down to 49, and thus not have to provide insurance. The "part time" loophole in the law is an incentive for big employers that employ low paid, low skill workers to cut workers hours to half time so that they do not have to insure those workers.

Obamacare is also a disguised bailout for the big for-profit insurance companies, since it gives them a captive market.

Did The BLS Give Obama A Major Election 2012 Gift?

gal campaign contribution from the Commerce Department. The Departmentís Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported on October 5, 2012 that the nationís unemployment rate suddenly dropped sharply over the prior month, from 8.1% to 7.8%. That supposedly ended the longest period in the nationís history with unemployment over 8%, except for the Great Depression, which occurred under President Obama.

"Too many people are giving Obama a pass on his disastrous economic performance because the recession was so bad when he entered office. That view is held predominantly among the low information voters who are literally clueless about the realities of the nation they live in."

AMEN

It is sad that so many voters listen only to the Democrat that signed them up to vote. Of course the dead voter don't listen to anybody but they still vote Democratic.

Of course CEOs are optimistic. With decreased wages there is more money for the CEOs. The Democratic redistribution of wealth from the middle class to the wealthy and the government dependent is bound to make those receiving the wealth optimistic. Why do you think the Democrats get so much financial support from 1%?

Better than that, the Federal Reserve is buying $86 billion worth of those CEO's bonds each month. When the Fed talks about tapering back, the markets tank.

How long can the Fed keep it up? What would happen if they sold?
