    GOP basically over looks corruption, lies and other tricks on wall street which hurts investor confidence.

    Democrats are better for the economy because they won't borrow $700 billion dollars from the Chinese to fund a useless war.

    You could create a baseless rhetoric forum, but then you might as well move every thread to that forum.

    Explain how calling for jobs, saying they will create jobs (yet they fail to realize government does not create jobs, industry does), raising taxes, making things harder on business, taking away incentive to earn more, etc is actually BETTER for the economy

    Great question.

    And after OJ does that, I'd appreciate it enormously if somebody would please explain to me how sending jobs overseas is good for the economy, too.

    I must have missed that lesson in Econ 101.

    I rather thought that keeping people gainfully employed would be the thing that patriotic Americans would think was the good thing.

    Apparently I'm out of step with the new economics or something.

    Funny... I did not know it was the American government sending jobs overseas... nor that it was any Republican administration or congress... rather it is companies trying their best to have profits they would not have here, because of the way government is being pushed to punish them as if they are the big bad wolf....

    Its about accountability. Democrats make business accountable so that there is more financial stability confidence. Republicans basically take the position the market should regulate itself and we get Enron, the mortgae crisis the energy crisis etc. Taking risk is fine, but dragging the whole economy down over unnecessary risk is wrong
