Stop telling us we do not understand. We have calculators. We see the numbers. We have good memories of how a ton of the stimulus was to build roads and infrastructure…but all we keep hearing now is we have to raise taxes for roads and infrastructure. You can talk blue in the face but there is a bottom line. The stimulus was loaned money…loaned by the taxpayer…and the taxpayer has to pay back that loan. Go think! We read about how many of your bundlers….how many of your cronies that received grants just because they started and got involved with faux green energy companies. I can go on…but it is worthless…because you just want to double and triple down. Read this:
TAMPA, Fla. (CBS Tampa/AP) — President Barack Obama says his re-election might help end the political stalemate in Washington, much like “popping a blister.”
In an interview with Time magazine, Obama says he expects Republicans in Congress to work more cooperatively in a second term, since his re-election would no longer be a factor.
“My expectation is that there will be some popping of the blister after this election, because it will have been such a stark choice,” Obama said.
The president says he also wants to do a better job of explaining to the public how his policies will help the economy grow. Obama claims he didn’t do a good enough job selling Americans on the stimulus plan and the auto company bailout because he was so focused on acting to fix the economy.
