Speaking of production, try producing one coherent sentence.

Lefty, the problem is you equate Congressional productivity with actual productivity. The only thing Congress is capable of producing these days is restraint on the people who actually produce things.

POOF...There they go again!!!

OK...MDN...Just between you and me...no one else is listening....are you SCARED OF THE TRUTH????

Interesting how my comments of stating that Dub-ya KILLED 4,400 soldiers and MAMIED OVER 100,000 was blatantly deleted from this string.

Now, why would that happen....hhhmmm??? Because it's not in your arsenal of BS archives??? Is it because Oxy-man, the Buttman O, and Sleazy********didn't say it's so???

Just wondering ;-)

Good One Loco

So, according to MSNBC, there is no debt to be concerned about (we can still borrow), and since there was a surplus in June, all's well with the world.

So the Democrats will be out on another spending spree.. everything is good now.. they have brough unemployemnt down by about 1/2 a point so life is good and they can spend on..

cont Then the last 2 years of Bush a Democratic controlled Congress was seated and every bill that Bush put forth for money for our troops had PORK in the billions in it. Bush was forced to sign it to support the troops. The Democrats were more than willing to throw the troops under the bus even tho they voted 100% to go to War.

Obama takes great pride in blaming the Republicans when in fact they have been the ones assigned to mopping up after Bill Clinton and his murder mess plus his infidelity plus his disgrace to the White House.. Now we will have the same dirty little mess to clean up after Obama..

the stock market started to decline in March of 2000, business investment began to fall in the third quarter of 2000, and initial jobless claims began to rise at the end of 2000 - more evidence that the U.S. economy in late 2000 was in fact "on the front end of a recession.

Then when 9/11 hit Bush kept the economy going even tho many foreign countries thought it would collapse.

Bush inherited a recession and yet was able to keep things running till the housing bubble burst..

The housing bubble was a direct result of Clinton demanding banks let anyone and everyone buy a home. Once the fact they were not going to make the payments caught up everything went to he%%. Once all these non working class home owners that Clinto brought to the table lost their homes it dropped the bottom out of the entire housing market. In doing so it collapsed the banking industry. Clinton started the whole mess. Bush did what he could to keep the country afloat. THEN the last 2 years Cont:

So, according to MSNBC, there is no debt to be concerned about (we can still borrow), and since there was a surplus in June, all's well with the world.

Notice this quote: "Interest payments on debt are 4 percent lower than the same period last year. The improvement reflects the break the government is getting from record-low interest rates. But those payments will rise in coming years as the Federal Reserve allows interest rates to return to more normal levels."

So when, not if, the Fed increases the interest rate, the rosy picture changes in a hurry.

Is everyone crossing their fingers and wishing hard?

article on deficit spending (surplus in June) 7-11-13

nbcnews . com/id/52452456/ns/politics/t/us-govt-reports-billion-surplus-june/

"Interest payments on debt are 4 percent lower than the same period last year. The improvement reflects the break the government is getting from record-low interest rates. But those payments will rise in coming years as the Federal Reserve allows interest rates to return to more normal levels.

"The federal deficit represents the annual difference between the government's spending and the tax revenues it takes in. Each deficit contributes to the national debt, currently $16.7 trillion.

"The improving deficit picture has taken pressure off negotiations to raise the federal borrowing limit, although that battle is likely to resurface in the fall. Obama has remained at odds with Republicans over cutting benefit programs and imposing further tax increases."

article on debt 1-11-13

maddowblog . msnbc****/_news/2013/01/11/16463952-on-debt-reduction-us-is-nearly-finished?lite

"...policymakers have already adopted a series of measures that will sharply reduce growth in the national debt. Indeed, just since the start of fiscal year 2011, President Obama has signed $2.4 trillion of debt reduction into law. If one includes the projected savings from the Affordable Care Act, that total is even higher.

"Of course, there is no debt crisis right now -- the U.S. can borrow as much as it wants, cheaply and easily..."

Success measured in the number of bills passed. Only in the mind of a liberal. If Boehner and the Republicans in the house had a spine, they would stop EVERYTHING they possibly could. Instead, they cry uncle every time a government shutdown is threatened.

"America doesn't have a "Money" problem, it's got a "Priorities" problem."

So any news about US debt or US deficit spending are just not a problem? I wonder what MSNBC says about those two words, debt or deficit...

centerish, I'm waiting for your list of bills initiated and passed by the House when Democrats were in the majority. Off-hand, the only one I can think of is ACA, the one that Pelosi said would have to be passed before anyone could know what's in it. And it passed without any wascally wepublicans' support. If there's any buyer's remorse now (the delay of the employer mandate and/or other snafus), this was the Democrats' babykins. Live with it.

Really, if Democrats think that passing more and more bills without actually reading them is what would truly help the country, I'll beg to differ.

Wouldn't it more prudent to actually know what the House and Senate are passing? Perhaps then there could be more transparency, efficiency and accountability, to coin a phrase.

Oh, I get it now. It's called "obstruction" when a Republican majority does it (any measure that centerish disagrees with), but it's "moving forward" when a Democrat majority does it (ACA+).

Maybe we should be looking at the governing body of our country. After all, spending bills originate in the House and are sent to the Senate. Other bills start in the Senate and are sent to the House. Then, they send the finished bills to the White House. Hmmmm, so lets talk about the work of the House first> Well, go ahead Billydoesn't, tell us about their body of work. Or, lets talk about the Senate and its 420 filibusters... How is that going for the country. Maybe we should talk about the verbal comments made by republican telling us they will do "anything" to stop what the administration proposes. When you had Boooossssch in office, the Republicans supported everything and passed it. The congress and their do nothing attitude are the problem. So, I too would like to hear about all the bills and items the House and Senate have passed to help the country. You guys have been asked for this many times but still nothing... well, that is what the House has done-N

I don't recall anyone else bringing race into it until you did. Is there a specific reason you care about the race of the people who receive food stamps? ....

I just gave you 20 examples of what Obama has done in the last 5 years, All have been true, But the K-D watches Faux Snooze....You know, the channel of RICH people, paying RICH people to tell MIDDLE CLASS people to blame the POOR people!!!!

CAN ANYONE remember a single thing that Congress has done to help the working class in the past two years??

America doesn't have a "Money" problem, it's got a "Priorities" problem...We give tax cuts to the wealthy and budget cuts to the poor.

What exactly did "DUB-YA" do, since you want, "specifics"...Let's see that list???

Still waiting Bill...

"Asked the other guys and got the silent treatment.. hummm nothing they could think of I guess"...Practice what your "preaching" huh, Bill???

Probably you can't think of anything from Dub-Ya, because he COMPLETELY DEVASTATED AND COLLAPSED OUR FINANCIAL SYSTEM

"...because it went against YOUR COMMON BUT VERY FALSE MISCONCEPTIONS, that people on food stamps are lazy, unemployed, drug-addicted welfare queens living and leeching off the teet of responsible taxpayers."

Working stiffs or not, they're still living off the backs of other working stiffs that don't get these bennies. After all, not everyone can get the bennies right? Or there would be no need for them because then everybody would just be paying for everybody else's bennies.

But you really need to be honest. It's not just food stamps. It's Section 8 or public housing, it's Medicaid. In some cases SSI when you can qualify your kid for some kind of disability. And there are a lot of people that stay on these programs for years. Six months? Don't kid yourself. It's six months at a time, because your income and assets are reviewed every six months.
