mocktwinkie saidAnd how do you know this recovery is not because of the fact that Congress is now majority GOP? Weren't you "asking" where the recovery was now that the house was taken over, well, maybe you're finally seeing it happen! lol
RickRick91 saidGreat news!
Month by month we're repairing the damage done by the Bush recession.
We just need to stay the course and make sure we don't go back to the same failed Repub policies that wrecked the economy to begin with.
LOL. Repairing damage would be seriously tackling the debt problem and Obama is doing absolutely nothing about that.
Please enlighten us and tell us when it was that the Repubs passed a jobs bill since they took control of the House.
What piece of JOBS legislation did the Repubs pass over the last year that created jobs?
And how did they get it passed into law without President Obama signing it into law?
And your claim that President Obama has done "absolutely nothing" to reduce the National Debt is TOTALLY FALSE revisionist bs.
Last summer President Obama proposed a 4 trillion dollar "Grand Bargain" debt reduction deal.
The Repubs in the House rejected the deal and said that it was too large and that it would reduce the National Debt TOO MUCH.
The Repubs countered with a debt reduction deal of less than ONE trillion.
President Obama rejected that too-small deal and after more negotiations a 2.5 trillion dollar compromise deal was reached which President Obama signed into law.
Tell us - how many debt reduction deals did George W. Bush sign into law?
Bush promised to completely eliminate the National Debt by the end of his time in office but he actually DOUBLED IT.
Did Bush sign any debt reduction deals into law?
Did he even PROPOSE any debt reduction deals?
We know he spent money like crazy and signed into law the Bush prescription drug bill - a massive government program that is 100 % UNPAID FOR and that will cost half a trillion dollars in the first 10 years alone.
Did Repub Bush make ANY attempt to reduce spending or reduce the National Debt?
Or did he just borrow and spend and borrow and spend?
The Repubs claimed that "deficits don't matter" for most of the last 30 years while they blew up the National Debt.
Repub presidents have added TRILLIONS more to the Nationsl Debt than Democratic presidents have.
The Repub's economic policies are NOT the answer to our debt problem.
THEY ARE THE MAIN CAUSE OF OUR DEBT PROBLEMS.
