I just wish I could read the wording on the graphs.
The problem with producing and publishing trasparently iodiotic crap like this is that it destroys the credibility of our sound arguments. Moreover, it is not as though the pubbies were a solution to the problem. The RINOs are as bad as the dims are. Worse, the RINOs genuinely believed that the nonsense going on with the FED and Wall Street was just ok. These were "private" transactions.
These guys are anti-energy, pro regulation, pro taxes, pro big government. The absolute path to no growth/high unemployment.
It's important to note that the Federal Government does the budget a year in advance. The last Republican controlled Congress' budget, passed in 2006 ran through 2007. The first Democrat controlled Congress' budget, passed in October of 2007 for fiscal year 2008.
It's NOT a coincidence that the economy went in the shitter at the same time the Democrats started spending OUR MONEY!
U6 numbers as of January 8, 2010 have gone from 13.5% to 17.3% in one short year!
U6 accounts for the folks below, as well as the newly unemployed. Basically it lumps together EVERYONE thats without a job, or those WITH part-time jobs who are ready, willing and able to work full time and can’t find full-time work and those that have basically given up:
Marginally attached workers are persons who currently are neither working nor looking for work but indicate that they want and are available for a job and have looked for work sometime in the recent past.
Discouraged workers, a subset of the marginally attached, have given a job-market related reason for not looking currently for a job. Persons employed part time for economic reasons are those who want and are available for full-time work but have had to settle for a part-time schedule.”
Right. AN anti-free enterptise government will surely result in less free enterprise. An anti-profit Regime will result in less profit. Logical. Less free enterprise and profit = less tax revenue. Add in more spending and you end up right where we are.
Graph looks cherry picked. Should be expanded and should include most recent data as well.
Excellent! EVERY GOP candidate running for office should use this. It should be publicized far and wide, though the MSM will totally ignore it.
Its the lesser of two evils. The American people, for a fact, had more economic freedom with GOP policy. The liberal legislation moves to restrict economic control. We all know the GOP policy is far from perfect, but it was not boa constrictor. Furthermore, it is quite possible that even the appearance of economic freedom lends real hope to the American people to go out and do Amazing things. It is really the American people that create jobs in this country, and if they want to they can. And GOP policy is more friendly to the people who innovate and create real value to this economy.
Read’em and weep.....literally...
A policy that relies upon monetary inflation to fuel real estate bubbles as a means of "wealth creation" is not frinedly to innovation or the creation of value. It is even worse than liberal control. Between the two there is not 10% worth of difference. We have been headed the wrong way since Lyndon Johnson, at least. There is no reality among either community organizers or country club republicans.
We warned them this would happen if they raised the minimum wage. ;)
