Are they THAT dumb?
And what happens when nobody buys their products? They close down faster than Hostess. What does that mean? More Americans out of work.

This is what the Democrats consider a positive direction for this country.

Oh sure. That's going to happen. But it's like when DumBama brags about the 5 million jobs he created while unemployment remains virtually unchanged. 5 million new jobs doesn't mean anything when you lost 5 million old jobs at the same time.

If you're bailing out the same amount of water that's entering the boat, you're not accomplishing anything until you seal the hole.

When Bush created jobs, unemployment went down until the housing crash. Sure, jobs were lost under his administration too, but less jobs were lost than jobs gained.

If they had gone for a single payer plan in the first place we would not be having these arguments. obamacare is just a gift to the insurance and drug companies and contains no real reform!
absolutely agree.

if congress had left the single payer option in, there would be no issue at all.
but by removing it, they've put this on employers, and ensured pharma and insurance company profits for years to come.

I think it goes beyond that. They survey people and businesses to make a calculation. But we have to admit, for most of the Bush years, we had a way better economy than the last four years.

Bush ran the economy in hole and then handed it off but the reason I question those numbers is because just like right now unemployment is worse nationally than what the numbers are saying and dont reflect the true unemployment situation nationally.

Oh, I see what you're saying. You're talking about the U-6 unemployment numbers. Yes, the U-6 is not only more accurate, but it's also much higher than than the unemployment numbers they throw out.

it sort of does though, because it's an average.
