And they made it 100% clear as to why ... they named names ... whose fault is it? GOP and the TeaBags.
TeaBaggery and conservatism is killing America. But the polls are clear. The special elections are clear. 2012 will be the eradication of conservatism. This time ... the 29 million Obama supporters that sat out 2012 will most assuredly not sit this time.

Monday's market is gonna be a brutal demonstration of why this country made a woefull series of terrible mistakes in leadership election over the past decade and why "We the People" will be the ultimate losers in the whole game.

Is it time to start the "grow it where you eat it" campaign yet?
My hydroponic vegetable garden has a faraday cage, triple-deadbolt, GPS proximity alert system with sentry guns and 1080p HD cameras poised at the driveway. lol
they finally blew us up.
“If the US Government was a family, they would be making $58,000 a year, they spend $75,000 a year, & are $327,000 in credit card debt.
They are currently proposing BIG spending cuts to reduce their spending to $72,000 a year.
These are the actual proportions of the federal budget & debt, reduced to a level that we can understand.”
– Dave Ramsey
“Because as a debt grows, so the interest payments you have to make on it grow, even if interest rates stay low.
And on current projections, the federal debt is going to be absorbing around 20 percent -- a fifth of all the taxes you pay -- within just a few years.

If the US top of the world Economy is going down, figure where the rest of us are. We're all going down. I have a strange feeling of fiction.
Careful how I answer?
Decrease spending? Sure....when it comes to 2 damned wars we are in that aren't being payed for or our endless military presence around the world...absolutely.....taxpayer subsidies need to be ended, corporate loopholes need to be closed.
Cutting programs that help the middle class, elderly, and poor.....NO. Doing that is not only immoral, but completely destructive to our economy.
But, most of all, our trade policies have to change and tariffs need to be increased to create job demand in the united states.

Not with this silly 'increase tariffs to create jobs' stuff again. If you cannot see the folly and naivete of such an approach, I fear for you.
You don't seem to realize that tariffs work both ways
