  • It's all about control. They don't want the unemployment numbers to improve.

  • Because anything they can push onto the American People in the name of the economy, they will... Obama lied about the Health Care bill creating jobs. He lied by omission. He omitted the part about the number of jobs that would be hurt, hours cut and positions lost. He omitted the part about BO Care impacting companies to drop medicare Rx plans. But some liberals prefer to celebrate BO Care as if they won a football game. Not analyzing the long term negative impact BO Care will have on this nation. Pathetic.

  • It's not. Mr. Obama chose the wrong first priority.

  • Silly, didn't you hear O when he said that he had been sooooo busy getting stuff done, that he hadn't really explained it well enough for us to really understand it? And Nancy, remember what she said? We have to pass the bill to find out what is in it, and she pinkie-swore that this would create jobs! Right away, it would create thousands of jobs! So, of course, health care IS more important, because without it, we wouldn't have those jobs! Wait a minute. Where ARE those jobs, anyway? I know she said there would be jobs immediately, where are they??????? Oh, I read on another thread, they're in INDIA!! Maybe with the NEXT super-duper, back-room, full of lies and pork, totally partisan bill they will get some jobs going, jobs that are not just more government bureaucracy jobs. And maybe I will find the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, and catch the leprechaun who guards it and get 3 wishes!
