Regardless of weather it's the republicans or the democrats fault, we have spent over 5 trillion dollars since Obama took offfice. So, with that being said, why hasn't the economy improved?
This just goest to show that everyone who thinks it's the job of the government is to create jobs during economic depression are flat wrong.
We are still over 8% dropping from 9% for the last 4 years. The government has spent this country into submission and we are still in a depression.
You can boast of the jobs that were created but that didn't put a dent into the amount of people out of work. The poverty rate has increased dramatically and people still want the government to increase taxes onthe wealthy.
This is insane - the revenues coming into the government has fallen off and they don't even have enough money to bail out the post office.
So, do you really think more "government spending", more "government job creations" are going to stimulate the economy? I don't think so.
It's the job of "business" to create jobs. Until people get it into their mind that that's what drives the economy, two, three or four trillion dollars more won't mean a thing - except burden our future generations who wil have to pay for it.
