    Will the Romney/Ryan duo end up destroying the economic recovery if elected?

    Mitt Romney has endorsed Paul Ryan's budget in the most direct way possible, by naming Ryan as his Running Mate in Campaign 2012. If elected, will their budget help or harm the nations fragile economy even more?

    Of course. Ryan helped write the Bush tax cuts, that sent our economy into this Feudal state we are living in now. If you liked the 8 years of Bush--you will love these 2. It's Bush on streroids. They want to make permanent and INCREASE the tax breaks the rich get. Like RMoney himself, who stands to gain big-time with Ryan and his own plan.
    War with Iran is also expected, as they are beholden to Netanyahu over you, the American people. Higher taxes on poor and middle class, demolished programs that really help people--all to pay for the new tax breaks the multi-billionaires apparently need.
    And they will give Bibi whatever he wants, as they take away from you. A shiny new war Rah Rah Sis Boom Bah
    These 2 clowns are not for America. They are global profiteers.

    yes they will for they just don't understand that for a economy to work all have to be in it but, from there view .all of income goes to the rich who they believe deserve it. while the worker make do to what the rich said they can make do with. any people not going to go hungry for long before there a time for a revolution or death choice is all that they have.is President Obama the best? no but, at least he pass a health care bill for ALL U S CITIZEN and save G M and Chrysler, and some of the money to put people to work rebuilding the roads.these two, cut everything for the people and even the one the people paid for like social security but let CORPORATE WELFARE INCREASE AND WARS AND INVASION GO ON. IT MAY BE GOOD FOR THE PEOPLE TO PUT THESE JOKERS IN FOR WHEN THE COUNTRY IS IN A HELL BASKET them just maybe the people of the United State will come together and stop this madness.

      Some people like it in Hell. As Bob Dylan says, "you got to serve someone".
      For, "he will give you the world (money, and all the luxury it buys) if you but bow down and worship him."
      You cannot serve 2 masters. love or money, not love of money!

    Unfortunately, if Romney and Ryan are elected only the more wealthy will benefit. Their election will signal the end of the middle class, medicare and social security.

    lol What economic recovery?

    "In June 2012 "we actually had more people go on Social Security Disability [85,000] ... than the 80,000 jobs that were created."

    From Jan 2009 to today:
    # of unemployed: up 500,000
    unemployment rate: up 3%
    price of gas: up 101%
    Federal debt: up 48%
    debt per American: up $15,000 (share of federal debt)
    food stamp recipients: up 45%
    home values: down 14%

    There is no economic recovery to ruin.

      Actually, it all started with Clinton and his bubble. Not to mention the trade deficit that he allowed to balloon under his Administration and did nothing to deter. It's 4 years later. This Administration has only made it worse.

      That's right. We are feeling the effects of trickle down.30+ years of it. accelerating the last leg when Bushco came in.
      It started with me in 03--because I had less to lose.
      Gradually,it has affected everyone who isn't 6 figures and up.

      lol @ 30 years later. That's just an absurd comment without any basis in fact. Reagan inherited Carter's mess, cleaned it up and gave us 25 years of growth.
