The Republicans who were voted in are the reason for the bad economy. They block everything Obama tries to do. Republicans don't want to spend money to get us out of the mess, but it takes money to make money.
Boy o' boy... you really need to get a grip, as you have no clue what the hell you're talking about.
So, the nasty Republicans are the reason for the bad economy and block everything BO tries to do, eh? LOL! How stupid can one get?(Don't try to answer... it will only provide more proof that will demonstrate the obvious.)
So, let's see... the recession started in the fall of 2008. BO was proclaiming that he was going to fix everything, change everything and WORK WITH the Republicans because he could bring everyone together in bipartisanship!
BO and the Democrats took the reigns with an overwhelming majority in BOTH Houses of Congress.
This MAJORITY (which had no concern for what the Republicans might have tried to offer... so much for bipartisanship) passed billions of dollars in "stimulus money" that didn't work. They added more spending by passing ObummaCare that has already caused insurance rates to skyrocket and still more to come.
Then they sat back and HOPED that the economy would turn around so they could take credit for it. The DID NOTHING else. Unemployment continued to rise.
All we heard is how the Republicans (and Bush, Bush, Bush) caused all the problems, yet nothing under their so-called leadership was working and nothing else was getting done. Along comes 2010 and the Republicans took the majority in the House... they put forth bills that only got put on the back burner by Reid, who would not let them come up for a vote.
All of a sudden, after two years of operating WITHOUT a BUDGET under the Democrat "leadership" and only passing continuing resolutions to keep the current spending funded... when the Republican House tried to force them to pass a budget, they only continued with their usual partisanship politics under the Senate controlled by Reid and fellow left-loons, who still would not allow such things to come up for a vote.
Now, you think it takes spending money to make money, eh?
Well, there's only one problem with your thought process... the government is not in business to make money. Governments tax to support government and there is nothing profitable from a government that taxes the citizens, which only takes money out of the economy.
Businesses spend money to make money. Profitable businesses offer a product or service that is needed or desired by the consumers. If successful, the business grows, which usually means expanding the business, which usually includes hiring more people to operate the business, as they strive to meet market demand. If they are really successful, they may even offer shares of stock to support their growth, which also helps Wall Street brokers (who are usually EMPLOYEES of those types of companies) make money by helping their clients portfolios make money... those portfolios are often other people's (employees) retirement accounts. Of course, they hope those stocks increase (and the Brokers make more money) so their retirement accounts grow.
No, government spending is not going to improve the economy.
If you really believe such things, you might want to study history a bit more and see how well the peasants lived under the feudal system, with a King that taxed them to death... or perhaps the wonderful economy of the U.S.S.R. under Communism... or the fabulous wages being earned by workers in China.
You're living in a fantasy world.
