Do you believe these campaign lies?

The stimulus plan didn't work. Every Republican candidate got the memo: Campaigning against the $814 billion Recovery Act passed in February 2009 is a winner. When the Democrat-controlled Congress passed the stimulus plan, the unemployment rate was 8.2 percent. On Election Day, it will be 9.6 percent. Polls show that only about one-third of likely voters think the stimulus plan helped the economy, while two-thirds think it did nothing or caused harm. The phrase "failed stimulus" is among the top GOP talking points, and it's a reliable rallying cry in the campaigns.

  • The Obama admin IS crushing small business!

    Lie


    Baloney, I am a small business owner and I should know if he is hurting me or not. How many businesses do YOU own sweet? When was the last time you had to meet a payroll?

    If you think it is a lie then PROVE IT. Prove it isn't hurting me and others like me.

  • The Obama admin IS crushing small business! The 1099 requirement in the healthcare law will cost me thousands all by itself...guess who gets to pay for that? The tax that will be required for some medical devices will add even more costs for my customers. The expiring of the Bush tax cuts will cost thousands more. I won't even go into the new regs I am facing.

    My problems are representative of most small businesses. We don't have a business friendly admin.

  • Recessions are cyclical, not the fault of the president.

    Not the president alone, but the average recession, when allowed to run its course last about two years. The exception is when a progressive is in office and tries to social engineer. Roosevelt, Obama.

  • The tax "breaks" they made such a big deal about are worthless in a stagnant economy. What business in it's right mind would expand or build new facilities when they have no clue what the new tax brackets are...and when they have no clue what the economy is going to do?

    Great cut and paste though sweet! You are the master!

  • It's getting old, we are not blind, we know what is going on.


    We are getting tired of all of your lies.


    Tell your bosses to give it up, it is to late.
