It becomes more obvious all the time, the GOP is intentionally creating as much poverty as it can.

You should be able to get unemployment for 20 years, then you should be forced to go on un-retirement.

At some point people need to accept financial responsibility for their own lives.

You are right. It is about time the democrats quit caving to every republican whim. It is no wonder the middle class is almost gone. With the republicans doing everything they can to destroy as many lives as possible, and the democrats doing nothing to stop them, it is obvious we need to dump them all and get decent human beings in office.

Too bad their not Mexican. If they were Mexican they'd already have a job.

Many Ameicans are "mentally handicapped" by their own sense of entitlement and codependent relationship with government. They literally are handicapped mentally.

In contrast, Mexicans living illegally in America exist outside the system, so they have no other option than to work. They are more adaptable, resourceful, and upwardly mobile.

Really, stop and think about it.

Don't get me wrong; I'm not an advocate for undocumented immigrants. I'm just saying let's give they guys credit where it's due.

If only Obama had taken the initiative to DO SOMETHING about the sluggish economy, we wouldn't be in this pickle.

LOWERING the amount of income taxes taken out of people's paychecks would have put MORE MONEY in people's pockets and would have stimulated the economy.

CAPPING the profits on oil companies would have saved people from being robbed at the gas pumps.

Placing a tax on imports would have encouraged more people to buy American made products.

And lastly:

And it isn't going to get any better, now that millions of newly insured are going to be handing over their money in the form of premiums to INSURANCE COMPANIES, rather than spending their money in support of their local economy.

People are suffering due to lack of successful leadership!!

What? People are still losing their jobs, businesses, and lifestyles?
But I thought ol' Barry Soetoro was going to save us all.
And the media has been telling us the economy is so good now. They would never lie to us..... right?

Yea, let's say some banker got robbed. He should take full responsibility and not let any of the bank customers be out and he should pay with his own pocket, and not require the government to go after the crooks.

Psst. Banks DO take responsibility for getting robbed. They purchase INSURANCE against that sort of thing.

The government doesn't bail out bank robberies.

You haven't been paying attention. Consider the recent bank bailouts. Then consider the federal reserve and how the government has given those people something like 23 Trillion dollars over the years. How about if they pay that back.
