    Obama's administration keeps on triying to grow government. More more more.



    But lets look at just 2 (and there are more) of the states that has done this.

    Michigan and California.

    If it didn't work there, than why are we following the smae example.

    More unions, more welfare, more govt jobs. That will not help

    It will improve the dems chances in keeping democratic whitehouse and congress, but it will not improve the economy.

    Now the government says that it needs to create more demand.
    How in the heck can the government create demand.
    It's not that there is no demand, it is that people who have demands, have no extra money.

    So what, will the government hand out money. What will that solve.

    Get used to it. The federal government has been expanding for years. It is nothing new.

    And no, it doesn't work.

    The federal budget went from 1.7 trillion in '99 to 2.9 just before that $700 billion bailout that was passed just before the election, and just before the second 789 B bailout. Add it all up, and the federal budget has doubled.

    Someone is putting Miracle Grow in Washington, and we need Roundup instead.

    We need more of these guys. Neither the Republican nor the Democratic Parties want limited government.

    How do you plan to pay your $30,891.15?

    Maybe take out a mortgage on your house?

    Shaman. Here ya go.

    Just remember Shaman. No matter how you slice it and dice it, when government grows the money has to come from somewhere to pay for that growth.

    Just like in California, the spending is out of control and they can't collect enough. Raising taxes is not the fix. The fix is cut spending. Cut back. One of California's biggest problems is the over 30 billion dollars spent on illegals. That is crushing the state. Yet, I don't see Obama standing up and saying that he is not for amnesty.

    Obama needs to recognize this. He can't spend his way out of this. If he could we would have seen signs of improvement. But we haven't and we won't.

    Spending does not stimulate small business which account for over 90% of new jobs. As for small business, there were almost no realy benefits in the steal-from-us bill that actually incetivised small business to create more jobs and grow.

    Instead Obama says he want to tax small business (200k - 250K) owners. These are the same people that have propped up the US economy for so many years.
