It also works better when people can keep more of their own money. They not only spend more to keep the economy going but many give more too.

But there has to be jobs and government incentives for businesses to hire instead of cutting back and firing like they are now.

Another reason to vote Romney/Ryan.

Okay, night.

Biden said "Mitt Romney said let Detroit go bankrupt, period."
FACT: Romney wrote an article in the NY Times saying, "The American auto industry is vital to our national interest as an employer and as a hub for manufacturing. A managed bankruptcy may be the only path to the fundamental restructuring the industry needs. It would permit the companies to shed excess labor, pension and real estate costs. The federal government should provide guarantees for post-bankruptcy financing and assure car buyers that their warranties are not at risk.
In a managed bankruptcy, the federal government would propel newly competitive and viable automakers, rather than seal their fate with a bailout check."

The New York Times took the liberty to title it misleadingly.
Left myth: GM did not go bankrupt.

Yes, they did. What the US government did was insert itself the chapter 11 reorganization.

Another Left myth- this is a dumb one usually by lily hyperventilating about underwear.

Left Myth: ALL Mormons wear a special undergarment.

False. Only Mormons married in the Tabernacle in Salt Lake City are given the right to wear this temple undergarment. Other members of the church not married there wear regular undergarments.

Mitt and Ann were married at Ann's house. So, lily stop worrying about their underwear.

Government revenue is the income of a government from all sources used to pay for a nation's expenses.
If the government doesn't receive enough revenue, we have to keep borrowing more money.
Increasing revenue is the whole point. It's not the same as making government bigger.
The more people working and paying taxes, the more revenue the government takes in, the more it can pay its expense, the less money it has to borrow and the more it can decrease the deficit.
My guess is that [Romney-R is 4 the rich] is at about 8th Grade level and trying to break into adulthood prematurely.

He needs to stay in the oven for another 15-20 years before hitting Prime Time.

You can rest assured that if the loopholes are closed on the wealthy, they will be paying more in taxes. And with more people working again and having more money to spend under the Romney/Ryan administration, the government will also take in more revenues including the wealthy paying more in taxes. See how capitalism works when it's done right?
Actually, no, that’s not how budgets are done. Speculating there will be chickens and then counting them before they hatch is either wishful thinking or a “bill of goods.” All that glitters is not gold. The Ryan budget just doesn’t, nor could it possibly, add up without any numbers. Arithmetic requires numbers.

I should have also emphasized that while loopholes being closed means the wealthy will pay more in taxes and with more people working, the government will take in more revenues...also the Romney/Ryan administration will tackle the waste and duplication in government, cut back on spending to what is absolutely necessary and will allow states to take care of their own specific needs without the federal government micromanaging everything and everyone. Another way capitalism works when it's done right.
Again, doing the math means demonstrating with number values that increased revenues from closing loopholes will be sufficient to offset debits. Accounting is not based on faith in the validity of a theory. While you may be confident that billions of dollars will result from trickle-down economics (that’s why it’s called voodoo economics), your confidence doesn’t constitute a substitute for formal logic (math). No bank would approve a loan based solely on borrower confidence.

Nor do businesses hire employees on vague promises of "Hope and Change" as evidenced by the last four years.

"Forward"? Forward to what,$6 trillion more on the Nat'll Debt? Jobwise, that one won't even add one sweeper to the third shift.

25 million workers unemployed or counted out of the Civilian Labor Force. Millions more to be reduced to part time employment with ObamaKare. National debt exceeds a year's GDP. Energy and food costs up substantially while mean family income has dropped $4,000.

Some people do desperate things in desperate times that they wouldn't do any other time.
Social Security disability claims skyrocketed during the past four years at the same time jobs are impossible to find. The government has so many backlogged claims, they don't have the manpower or the time to determine if all of them are legitimate.
Most of the 47% who receive some sort of government help can't find a job either.
The rest of us are working our tails off supporting our own families while supporting those who simply can't find a job or gave up looking for one.
The problem is there are no jobs. The rise in part-time employment isn't good news.
Miller wasn't being serious. He was making an observation. If Obama is reelected, the message will be to a lot of people why work if the other half of the country doesn't have to because this president would RATHER them to be on the government dole?
This buck stops at Obama's desk. His policies created this environment.
Sure Carol but what's the GOP's answer? Cut taxes and regulations which didn't do anything the last time it was tried. Let's take a look at the Romney way of doing business.
Sensata Technologies in Illinois made sensors for the automobile industry and made record profits with the resurgence of the auto industry. That wasn't enough for its owners Bain Capital who figured they could line their own pockets even more by shipping the jobs and equipment to China. While Romney is no longer with Bain it's his business strategy that they're going by and as a major stockholder he still makes money from their deals. The workers of Sensata went to Iowa and to the GOP convention in Tampa to plead their case directly with Romney who as the founder and a major stockholder in Bain still has considerable influence. Their pleas fell on deaf ears.
Bain in addition to padding their profits by paying Chinese workers a fraction of what the American workers were making got a tax deduction for shipping those jobs and equipment to China. Democrats have introduced legislation to end this deduction but have been consistently blocked by the Republicans.

Last week when the main stream media reported that Romney won the debate they were hailed by the right as impeccable sources of truth. This week when the same media reported that Biden won, the right cries bias.
The philosophy of the loony right is to take both sides of an issue when its convenient for them. Another example is their desire to have less government regulation in their lives. But in the case of a woman's body they want MORE regulation. I guess I see why these morons support Romney, he is on both sides of every issue too.

Why Mitt Romney is Unlikable!
A lot is being said in the media about Mitt Romney not being "likable" or that he
doesn't "relate well" to people. Frankly, we struggled to understand why.
So after much research, we have come up with a Top Ten List to explain this "unlikablility."

Top Ten Reasons To Dislike Mitt Romney:

1. Drop-dead, collar-ad handsome with gracious, statesmanlike aura. Looks like every central casting's #1 choice for Commander-in-Chief.

2. Been married to ONE woman his entire life, and has been faithful to her, including through her bouts with breast cancer and MS.

3. No scandals or skeletons in his closet.(How boring is that?)\

4. Can't speak in a fake, southern, "black preacher voice" when necessary.

5. Highly intelligent. Graduated cum laude from both Harvard Law School and Harvard Business School...and by the way, his academic records are NOT sealed.

6. Doesn't smoke or drink alcohol, and has never done drugs, not even in the counter-culture age when he went to college. Too square for today's America ?

7. Represents an America of "yesterday", where people believed in God, went to Church, didn't screw around, worked hard, and became a SUCCESS!

8. Has a family of five great sons....and none of them have police records or are in drug rehab. But of course, they were raised by a stay-at-home mom, and that "choice" deserves America 's scorn.

9. Oh yes.....he's a MORMON. We need to be very afraid of that very strange religion that teaches its members to be clean-living, patriotic, fiscally conservative, charitable, self-reliant, and honest.

10. And one more point.....pundits say because of his wealth, he can't relate to ordinary Americans. I guess that's because he made that money HIMSELF.....as opposed to marrying it or inheriting it from Dad.

Apparently, he didn't understand that actually working at a job and earning your own money made you unrelatable to Americans. My goodness, it's a strange world, isn't it?

Fortunately, Americans got to see the real Romney in the debate. The Obama characterization assassination that night, was for once, directed at himself. Obama revealed that he can only function when his handlers put him in front of a teleprompter, or when the questions are silly and of little importance, like on The View.
Romney outclassed him!
