    They were permanently lost when obamacare was passed. The vast majority of them anyhow. You can lower or raise taxes all you want but until the ball and chain is removed from the business community we will see stagnant growth at best.

    The only thing that has prospered under Obama is wallstreet and the Muslim Brotherhood.

    Wall st is prospering because of all the money the Fed has been creating, and because companies have figured out how to turn big profits from their streamlining.

    What's sad is that Obamacare is a good idea. Universal health care? That's awesome!

    ...too bad we can't afford it right now.

    Since when has something not being true stopped them from believing it? A few weeks ago, they were talking about a Romney landslide.

    Remember?

    There is one indesputable fact, when government shifts money to a sector the costs go up, prime examples are healthcare and education. Once market preasures were removed their cost have risen 3-6 times the rate of inflation.

    yay another person who thinks I'm right wing! That's 2 for the right and 1 for the left.


    Anyway, tell me where in the hell the money comes from? If we pull it from taxpayers, then do we prioritize it above other things that need money sunk into it?

    If Maobamas tax rates are bad, why extend any of them? Let them all expire.

    How are neither true? COUNTLESS jobs have already been lost or set-up to be lost at the end of the year because of this. SO, we can afford it? Middle class percentage is getting lower and lower every day. So there goes the tax payer being able to afford it. Dcotors giving away free care? NO there goes the liberal standpoint. The US paying for it.. HHMmmm 16+ trillion in debt, another recession coming next year.. Hmm there goes that one. Your partisan ideology is obsurd. BAsically, sir, you are an idiot
