The world economy sucks, after years of job loss we've had 5 straight years of job growth under Obama, Obama has cut growth in government spending more than any president in decades, and most economists consider the rise in interest rates a good thing.
Ernie: it's misleading to say O cut growth in spending without also seeing the amount spent. O is adding to the enormous debt Bush left but has ALREADY more than doubled Bush. Then see they were about the worst pair of debt creators we've had as presidents.
And overall the "job creation" has been too anemic to support any cure out of our Small Depression.
Yes, the debt IS going up, but it takes money to run the US and there is NO way we can cut spending enough in the short term to lower the debt and still keep the US viable, unless we want to turn into a Third World nation.
Now...we all know that is a phony scandal!
Union busting employers and the medical insurance industry I would imagine.
