Honestly at this point if the GOP doesn’t pass this new jobs bill, it’s purely political.
Everything the Republican party has done since November 2008 has been purely political.
Cost of last decade’s wars much higher than Obama said
- $3.7 trillion cost for the United States’ post-9/11 wars source
» The wages of war: When President Obama referred to a $1 trillion price tag for America’s wars in the last decade, he clearly hadn’t spoken to the folks running the Costs of War project at Brown University’s Watson Institute. The project determined the above figure through calculations that included future costs, such as health services for wounded veterans returning home, as well as counting what’s generally referred to as our “secret” war in Pakistan.
But what’s killing our economy and causing huge budget deficits is the socialist agenda. You know, unemployment benefits, programs to help people pay for college, inexpensive women’s healthcare, and of course Obamacare.
Double-dip fuels fear of another Great Depression
- 48% of people think another depression is coming source
» That’s the highest level ever. While the poll question (from a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll) had a slight majority — 51 percent — saying we probably won’t have one, a possible double-dip recession has many folks a little concerned. Obama promises that’s not going to happen. He better hope he’s right — 51 percent of people also said that the economy is extremely important in determining who they’ll vote for.
If nothing major changes in the government’s current approach to the economy, then yes we will hit another depression. I’m not making some far-fetched prediction. Austerity measures do nothing to stimulate demand. This is not rocket science people.
