Pick one. Dazzle us with your insight
Did you know like Romney in the 2012 Presidential Loser Election, when America stayed Blue, the Good Ship Wingnut has taken hold of the economic argument that is a loser for them? Yep, they ran out of ammo and have now resorted to plastic mallets and water pistols.
Oh yeah, they have talking points now...taxing the Super Wealthy will not settle the debt (not that anyone actually says it will) and other imbecilic straw man arguments
The problem with the economy is conservative economic theories of the past...they were put into practice and the chickens have come home to roost
gotta love it. I was just told by a friend to search the phrase...seems they had recently.
chickens come home to roost
if you say that chickens are coming home to roost, you mean that bad or silly things done in the past are beginning to cause problems
ex: There was too much greed in the past, and now the chickens are coming home to roost with crime and corruption soaring.

Our educational system is fucekd up under unions.
The problem with the American economy is the 1%.
Over the last 30 years, the economic philosophy has been to enrich these folks with money and tax incentives in the hopes that they would trickle the wealth down to the rest of us.
Unfortunately, we still live in Reagan and Bush's America when it comes to economic philosophy. The real "takers" are the multi-nationals and the super wealthy. The producers and the drivers of the economy work to send everything up the ladder wholesale, and what they've gotten in return is higher health care costs, less job security, broken contracts, broken unions, stagnant wages, no benefits, and job outsourcing.
All the rules have been written by the people that these folks own in Washington, and they continue to benefit the most from the system that exists today. The average American will either tell you things are about the same or just a little bit better or worse than 4 years ago. However, there is not one single 1%'er who could be justified in saying the same thing. Not Romney, not Trump, not the estate of Steve Jobs, not the Facebook guy, not Sheldon Adelson.
Those people had 4 amazing, record-breaking years, thanks in part to "rules and regulations" that have been written to specifically benefit them.
It all goes back to the Nationalist Reagan Socialist economic philosophy that says we all slave away in order to make the top guy rich and then and only then will he rain cash upon us all. What a fucking lunatic way to run a country, but that's where we're at and hopefully that'll start changing as the fiscal cliff approaches.
