    The fastest way to get the economy moving again is to cut spending, pay back the national debt, and make permanent the Bush Tax Cuts which are due to expire in just a few months.

    That is right from her own Issues page.

    How would that work, exactly? I mean, how would that get the economy moving?

    You get the economy moving by getting big government out of the way.

    See my sigline as to Obama and the Golden Goose.

    'Nuff said.

    In other words, you can't specify how it would work.

    To significantly reduce the size of government and government spending - setting aside the merits of that -

    you would have to put tens of thousands of Americans out of work. It's inevitable. Not just government employees per se, but private sector employees who work for companies that do significant amounts (or any amount for that matter) of business with the government.

    Let's pretend they actually did that. They (as in the Angles of the world) actually did accomplish a massive reduction in government. Now all of those people as described above are ALSO out of work, on top of the current situation.

    How does that get the economy moving? Because that is what Sharron Angle is claiming it would do.

    Hey dummy.... you have ANY proof of what you are claiming?

    The gov't does'nt create jobs.... the privater sector does. If you tax that sector to death, how is that supposed to help grow the economy?
