    Naturally, people who try to prove positive results with negative evidence fail to show their work.

    So now the CBO is a Socialist Arm of the Democratic Party Dude? The CBO is constantly cited by both sides on here. Just recently, many including yourself I believe cited them on the issue of Health Care Reform.

    If they say say it is a conservative estimate that the Stimulus added 2.5 million jobs overall, that's great news. Even if you don't like the stimulus.

    Doesn't address the logical fallacy of the situation.

    Nor do they seem particularly eager to make estimates on how many jobs were destroyed, by expropriating funds from the private sector and/or inflating the currency.

    But that's Keynesian voodoo economics for ya.

    :cuckoo: Why not make a real argument instead of attacking the best Economic Research Firms in the country and the CBO? Let me guess, they're all in Obama's pocket too as one part of a massive conspiracy? :cuckoo:

    I'm pointing out where Keynesian witch doctors like to misdirect your attention.

    Gubmint bureaucrats love visible "beneficiaries" and invisible casualties

    Inflation doesn't destroy jobs. The opposite is true, in fact.

    He won't make a real argument because he can't make a real argument.
