Using rosy numbers, every job "saved or created" cost $280,000. Was that responsible? Was that the best we could do? Was it a success? No! Ref: Fox News ~ Weekly Standard

35 Shocking Statistics That Prove That Things Have Gotten Worse In America


The Hill President Obama on Friday kept up the pressure on Republicans to agree to revenue increases in a deal to raise the debt ceiling, claiming 80 percent of the public supports Democrats' demand for tax increases.

Gallop Americans do not necessarily share this view, with 20% saying deficit reduction should come only through spending cuts. That percentage is a little higher, 26%, among those who identify as Republicans. Republicans do, however, tilt heavily in favor of reducing the deficit primarily if not exclusively with spending cuts (67%) as opposed to tax increases (3%). Fifty-one percent of independents share that preference. Democrats are most inclined to want equal amounts of spending cuts and tax increases (42%), though more favor a tilt toward spending cuts (33%) than tax increases (20%).


http://www.dailymarkets.com/economy/2011/03/21/u-s-has-most-progressive-tax-system-for-oecd-24/ USA's top 10% wage earners pay 45.1% of all tax receipts. We have the most "progressive" income tax in the world. Should we really make it more preogressiver? Methinks it better that the rich guys donate to charities, invest in businesses, and hire people.

Democrats and Republicans are joining to oppose one of the most important features of President Obama’s new deficit reduction plan, a powerful independent board that could make sweeping cuts in the growth of Medicare spending....In general, federal courts could not review actions to carry out the board’s recommendations.

The law sets annual goals — “target growth rates” — for Medicare spending below the average of the last 15 years.

..."Obama’s proposal would allow the board to “impose more price controls and more limitations on providers, which will end up cutting services to seniors.”


Top 1% Paid More in Federal Income Taxes Than Bottom 95% in ‘07 http://economix.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/07/30/top-1-paid-more-in-federal-income-taxes-than-bottom-95-in-07/


The fact that we're here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. Leadership means 'The buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better. I therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase America's debt limit. http://content.usatoday.com/communities/theoval/post/2011/01/obama-once-opposed-lifting-debt-ceiling/1

    A tax cut means higher family income and higher business profits and a balanced federal budget. Every taxpayer and his family will have more money left over after taxes for a new car, a new home, new conveniences, education and investment. Every businessman can keep a higher percentage of his profits in his cash register or put it to work expanding or improving his business. And as the national income grows, the federal government will ultimately end up with more revenues. John F. Kennedy, who in a radio address on September 18, 1963

"Standard & Poor's takes no position on the mix of spending and revenue measures that Congress and the Administration might conclude is appropriate for putting the U.S.'s finances on a sustainable footing." It wasn't the lack of tax increases that caused the downgrade of America's credit rating.

5 things about the S&P downgrade report


"...the debt burden is slightly higher. Second, the revised data highlight the sub-par path of the current economic recovery when compared with rebounds following previous post-war recessions. "

Our debt burden is higher than projections and our "summer of recovery" is sub-par? Well, I guess I noticed. Sounds like a good downgrade to me.

A President Who Ignores the Law

Tax receipts went up as a share of GDP when President Kennedy lowered the highest marginal tax rate from 91% to 70%. Tax receipts went up again when Reagan lowered the highest rate to 50%. When the highest rate was cut to 28% in 1996, tax receipts went down just slightly. http://www.cato.org/pub_display.php?pub_id=13204&utm_source=Cato+Institute+Newsletters&utm_campaign=a930af74a5-Cato_Weekly_Dispatch_6_17_2011&utm_medium=email


Today 51% of working Americans have no federal income tax liability. Today almost 70% of Americans take more out of the tax system than they actually pay in.


A government report released yesterday revealed the national debt has shot up from 40% of the economy at the end of 2008 to 70% at the end of this year ... “Our debt is now bigger than China’s entire economy.”

"Sure, we could hold down long-term interest rates and pursue a program of quantitative easing, but c'mon, we all know that's not going to make the slightest bit of difference when it comes to output, demand, or employment," - Bernanke


Not only could North Carolina learn a thing or two from Sir John Cowperthwaite… but so could nearly all our politicians in Washington…

A half-century ago, the United Kingdom put Sir John in charge of Hong Kong. He found Hong Kong did well without government help. Legend has it, he even refused to collect economic statistics for fear the Brits would use them to determine what part of Hong Kong's society to "help."

Hong Kong went from "a barren rock" to wealthier than Britain (per capita) by 1992.


Aren't we all happy that Indianapolis was "occupied?" Proud of our investment of time and money? Feels great to protest those greedy corporations doesn't it?

Now going forth, we promise we won't shop for products or services that earn the producer a profit, advertised by profitable marketers, or are distributed by suppliers that turn profits. We also promise to only be employed by middle class (or lower) business owners who are never going to be profitable. Rite?

Yah! Long live our leaders: Bill Ayers, George Soros, and SEIU. Oops! A convicted felon, a very rich man, and an international business concern. Hmm... I wonder if those people have an unspoken agenda? Time will tell.

The budget office confirmed what the president has been saying, in that the jobs bill would be fully paid for over 10 years and that it would reduce the deficit....by $3 billion over the course of a decade.

Wow! 3 billion dollars in only a decade. Rah! Rah!
