    I'll weigh in with a big, fat NO....looming taxes, scary legislation, on businesses not the way to get people back to work.
    Buy Insurance, pay a fine, or go to jail- absurdity. Cap and Trade- Logic tells me- not a good idea in the first place, but terrible idea for the economy. So on, and so on....This administration seems to be doubling down on bad ideas....what's your take?

    When has our government ever done anything right except for the ones who started it?

    September 2008 G W Bush got on TV and told us we were on the verge of a depression. A year+ later, the idea of the depression is history, so they must have done something half way right or was GW not being truthful.

    Personally, I feel our Country is to busy arguing over "Democrats" and "Republicans" as individuals.  I think it is time for people to stop blaming groups and start working together to fix what is broken and knock off the arguing.  That is the number one problem with America...working against each other and getting no where, rather than coming together and making America what it is suppose to be..."a place dreams come true"...it's just a nightmare for most today!

      I agree to a certain extent....Problem is until last weeks win in MA, the dems weren't interested in Bi-partisanship, they just had to get all their members in favor, now they want that one republican to jump ship so they can call it Bi-partisan, and they need the vote...

      that would be like jumping off the lifeboat and back onto the sinking ship...

      Buy insurance, pay a fine(tax), or go to jail- this is reform.....

      we have an agenda for the next 3 years...debate is not what the dems want

        Republican aren't interested in Bi-partisanship either. BOTH parties are hurting the country.Time to vote them all out and find people who will do their jobs.

      I don't think you should let the politics ruin your personal life.

    I agree 100%! This is a government hell bent on destroying the republic and replacing it with a progressive view of a utopian socialist society!

    You have to deal with the CAUSE not the symptoms.  When you address the cause the symptoms can heal.

    The cause is the Central Bank Fractional Reserve Banking system which lets a select group of Private Secretive Bankers control the money supply.

    Until this is addressed the Economy will never fully recover because the debt load is too high.

    This is not a Racial Issue, this is Not a Republican vs. Democratic issue.

    The Federal Reserve is a privately owned Bank that acts in the interests of it's Shareholders not the American People.

    Cap and Trade suits their agenda, so does unemployment.  As properties default on loans the Banks Take ownership.

    These people do NOT need money.  They have all the money they could ever want, all they have to do is print it!  These people want complete control and power.  As assets shift to their control they get just that.

    These policies serve the "Invisible Government" very well.
