    John Kasich, GOP gov of Ohio said the uncertainty in taxes is the problem. The CEO of Honeywell said, no, it's the uncertainty in demand.

    Republicans have completely forgotten our economy is driven by "supply and demand". If there is no demand, there will be no supply which means "NO JOBS". Part of Government creating an "environment" for jobs, is "creating something". In this case, our old and out of date infrastructure. Republicans say, if you build a bridge, after it's built, that's the end of the job. In fact, after it's built, it's only the beginning. Now communities are connected, something that drives economic growth.

    Republican Scott Brown had it right, lobbying for hi-speed internet in the business community in his state from the Obama stimulus package.

    The "job creators" aren't just making jobs because jobs is a nice thing to do or because we cut all their taxes and now they are grateful. Because business is not a charity. If you have a demand, they will find a way to squeeze profit out of that demand. And with that demand comes jobs to create a supply. With no demand, no jobs.

    What fuels a demand? We have already had the greatest "redistribution" of wealth from the middle class to the top 1% in the history of the world. The middle class needs money. The best way to get money is to have a job. The best possible jobs right now are rebuilding our country's infrastructure. Roads, bridges, electrical grid, dams, high speed internet, green energy and yes, even drilling for oil.

    Where will that money come from? If those companies and rich people want to have a safe and secure country to keep their money, they better be paying for it, because if they just take and take, people will get fed up and take back.

    Remember, those people can buy the best politicians money can buy. The middle class only has votes.

    And yes Virginia, it really is that "simple".

    It didn't fail. But it could have been better. The filibuster party never would have let it pass unless it was close to half being tax cuts.

    If tax cuts were the answer, the Bush tax cuts, plus the Bush tax extensions plus the twelve largest corporations paying nothing in taxes and getting billions in free money plus the oil subsidies would have given us the best economy ever. And it did. For the companies. Even you have to admit that.

    The other problem, the filibuster party would never have let it pass with the Federal Government in control of the money. They insisted it be passed to the states. Where the states used it to balance their budgets and didn't build much of anything.

    However, money did go to projects:

    Stimulating Hypocrisy: 114 Lawmakers Block Recovery While Taking Credit For Its Success

    GOP governors take the (stimulus) money and run

    Frank, why don't you ever spend a few minutes to look up the truth? It's not like it's a secret. Why are you afraid of learning? Actually knowing what's going on has a calming effect. Try it some time.

    Ask the Republicans. 114 of them took the money. Rick Perry used the money to balance the Texas state budget. Too bad the Republicans were involved. Everything they touch turns to shit. Because "Government doesn't work". They should know. They broke it.

    Frank, come on. You know a so called majority in the Senate is 60 votes.

    Then you have Blue Dog conservative Democrats. Really Republicans pretending to be Democrats.

    The question is, "What is it about the Republican Party the Conservative Democrats find appalling? Is it the racism? The lack of education? The stance on education and science? Must be something.
