    We haven't forgotten about growth, but the Republican mindset its impossible to do anything about it. Cutting taxes for the rich will do very little to help the economy.

      You don't understand basic economics very well... who do you think create jobs in this country? Certainly not the government... it's those evil rich people. If they are taxed less, they have more money to invest in their businesses, grow their sales, and hire more employees. I'm not one of those rich people, but I don't begrudge them for their success. The more successful they are, the better for our economy. Taxing them more isn't the solution.

        Matt - those evil rich people have fared better over the last five years than they did before this. Where are the jobs?

        Trickle down economics works, but people forget we live in a global economy. Our tax cuts for the wealthy and corporate welfare is raising millions of people to middle class status in other countries like China.

        matt you lie.its never been proven that it translate to growth of the economy.and yes rich people are evil, as well as the poor. David and co are lying through their teeth, and the same millions of Americans the claim to represent despise them according to poles and sentiment on every blog site i have been on.the maths statistic they keep using are flawed and one-sided, and easily check, its absolutely amazing that they keep spewing such nonsense in the face of overwhelming opposition to their stance.i think in reality they hope their base and some Americans wouldn't fact check what comes from the GOP.Quite frankly i think the a so afraid of ACA succeeding,so they are trying to stall it as long as they possibly can.on the other hand if they are so convinced they it is so bad for the American people, why not wait for time to prove it, and smash the Dems in 2014/2016.

    Sometimes I hear on the news, "the housing crisis is recovering." A lot of people who have tried to get a loan will say, "you could have fooled me."

    This morning as I do every Wednesday I drove past the Engineering and Permitting office building in my county. Only half of the employee parking spaces on the back side of the building were occupied, and half of those vehicles were County field service. cars. On the front of the building the customer parking lot had zero cars parked, yes, about 50 empty spaces.

    In 2005, both lots would be packed. In those days you had to make an appointment 3 weeks in advance, or more, to get in and meet a technician at the counter. Today you can walk in and the entire staff will gratefully help you.

    These are hard times.

    How do you keep a straight face when member of congress makes a statement like only 10 people have signed up for healthcare under the new law? This person said the website was not secure. Anyone could get all of your personal information and steal your bank accounts, stocks, bonds and other investments. Who would believe any of this? Sad he and others have to lie about this law to oppose it.

      I could believe it simply because it was reported that the federal government did not do background checks on the people they hired to get this law up and running. People we would have to give our personal information to. Such as bank account information, etc. They could be hiring someone with a criminal background, who was in jail or prison for identity theft. We have no idea WHO is taking our info, and WHAT they are doing with it.
