Not exactly, when that .2% growth, (or whats really projected which is 1.5%) is off set by a depreciating value of the dollar in the 3-4% range, you are at a net loss.

Because things cost more than when you started

then put in a rule to have a budget passed or atleast a plan to break the gridlock or if I was president threaten to severely cut back all salary and benefits of all senators and congressmen on both sides and have massive layoffs and budget cuts and make senior staff members fly coach on a discount airline and a cheap hotel heck try to make them catch flights with the Canadian government on our Government owned Challenger private planes to international events to sign some trade deal or speech outside of North America


split the cost of fuel for the flight we can use an old C-130 military cargo plane since a new 787 is expensive then pay every politician a max of $50K a year and lead refusing to be paid as president during bad economic times.

Republicans don't have a leg to stand on considering their support for George W. Bush.

So you think I went back into time, to make the Democrats win the Senate, just to make you wrong? Haha..

If its been cleared up multiple times, then why do you continue to be WRONG?

It began during the last two weeks of the George W. Bush administration, with the remainder spanning the first two years of Barack Obama's presidency

Well if a Republican filibustered his own bill, and left wing kooks believe Republicans plans are bad, then you should be applauding.. Why arent you?

Supposedly the Fed is now basing monetary policy or "all the tools in their arsenal" to reduce unemployment. I don't think people were expecting it to be reduced by masses of people forced into early retirement or living with their parents until age 40.
