They made it just fine before the Bush tax cuts. The deficit went downhill when bush came in. Take a look around the world. France has free government healthcare and is rated the greatest country to live on earth. Let the tax cuts drop. I never got a tax cut! I'm a middle class tax payer who says ill pay taxes for the wellness of my fellow Americans. Getting sick of these rich people complaining. Also i can pay more for my social security if it means it will still be there.
Uhhh - and, which problem is that? Is it the problem?
And this will solve the problem...?
Yeah - and...WHO is going to be doing this "tracking"? You? For no pay? Probably government funded - right?
Hijacking the political process... Hmmm - at least half of the country voted other than Obama...but...because your candidate won, no-one-else should have a say...if they disapprove.
Only those that side with your choice...should have a say.
You paint with a very broad brush.

scare tactics, if they do layoff people then spread the word for people not to buy their product. if i ever hear someone got layed off from a job i would never support their product ever, and i think most americans would do the same

This has absolutely nothing to do with anything it's just someone pouting that their ideology lost.

This thread reads like a lot of you are cheering on a self fulfilling prophecy just because
your guy lost.
It is time to pick yourselves up and put on a happy face, then the markets can regain some confidence,
because 150 million of you righties are a real drag on any sort of positive outcome.
Imagine if everyone at a business said, "our business sucks balls, we are doomed!" everyday???
Well, that is you guys... You spent this last year denying POSITIVE economic indicators in hopes that
you could oust Obama with negativity.Well that didn't work, time to stop with the woe is me.edit on 7-11-2012 by romney because: (no reason given)

Even a continued 1% reduction in deficit can provide the confidence boost required to get things going.
Now, that won't fix the problem, but it can start a chain effect that can mitigate damages until a fix can be implemented.
So, if, in January, Obama and Congress sit down and put together a budget with a smaller deficit than last year, the future may brighten substantially. Problem is I just don't see Congress and Obama playing nice.

I'll be honest. I could be talking out of my butt here, but this seems stupid.
Why would a company start firing people the day after an election because of "what is coming"? Why can't they keep people employed until the actual changes take effect and wait to see how it is directly affecting their business? Not a projection of what MIGHT happen, but waiting to see what ACTUALLY happens when it does happen.
I don't own a business so maybe I'm wrong. It just seems like businesses aren't using common sense.
