If Obama wants to actually do something good for the economy..he'd push a reform of our absolutely TERRIBLE trade laws.

Just not following the Obama bashing crowd. Sorry, but I don't just snap into line because it's "the cool thing". Unlike many here, I do actually think with my own brain.
I didn't always bash Bush, nor do I always support Obama. I think for myself, and try and find the truth of the matter which is why we are supposed to be on this site. Unfortunately lately, all it has been is people who are so brainwashed they can only see bad in this administration.

and why in the middle of an economic recession does congress decide to vote themselves a payraise, yet at the same time, choose not to raise those on Social Security?

, health care receiptiants can be kicked off any procedure with this new health care at any given time?
Obama has done what to stop the cycle of economic downturns we have went through for the last 50 years.
There are not new rules or laws to stop the same thing from happening in another 8 to 10 years.

I have yet to see any REAL proof...
Please, enlighten me...
Blogs, news paper articles, and post on ATS ARE NOT PROOF!!!
Please, point me to the section of the 1900 + page (not 3000 no need to exagerate here player) that is the basis for everybodies claims...
Where is the actual PROOF???
I can tell that you're a smart guy and all, but I noticed one very large flaw in your response to their form of reasoning. You ask them for PROOF.
When you ask these neo-cons for something as substantial as proof, you've stepped out of their universe. If it's not memorialized with a slogan, well they just can't remember it. Much the same way that their leaders came up with the slogan "Repeal & Replace" even before the bill was actually passed and long before they realized that it couldn't even be done.
Without catchy slogans their sails fall slack and their ship becomes dead in the water. Proof is just not an acceptable part of their vocabulary.
So it just goes to show you that no matter how smart we are, we can still learn something new every day. That's why I love ATS.

So healthcare passed and the economy is once again adding jobs,
a study shows that Tea Party members are highly misinformed on the the size of the Federal Government and taxes (the very things they keep protesting against).
Largest-ever federal payroll to hit 2.15 million
The Obama administration says the government will grow to 2.15 million employees this year, topping 2 million for the first time since President Clinton declared that "the era of big government is over" and joined forces with a Republican-led Congress in the 1990s to pare back the federal work force.
Since CBO projections (which Republicans accept when it favors one of their bills) show that this bill will reduce medical spending, Republicans are now dismissing the report as flawed.
Note the correlation with the US national debt (which isn't as scary as it looks in the chart, since the chart isn't indexed for inflation, nor does it show that the debt is as a percentage of GDP).
The estimated population of the United States is 308,175,010
so each citizen's share of this debt is $41,656.35.
The National Debt has continued to increase an average of
$4.14 billion per day since September 28, 2007!
This year, the system will pay out more in benefits than it receives in payroll taxes, an important threshold it was not expected to cross until at least 2016, according to the Congressional Budget Office.
