It's time for change. It's time to move forward. We've tried Democrats play... Where has it gotten us? Moving America in the Direction of Greece will not make US better.

Would be a good idea if that were happening, but it's not.

I'll be nice and pretend you really believe that.

You see, dear, Greece is under an austerity program. An austerity program is what the far right wants. Look it up. Austerity programs like Greece's and the teabaggers' cuts all government spending pretty much to where they can just have the lights on and the toilets flushing. That means cops and teachers aren't getting paid and all public assistance ends.

That means nobody has any money to buy things at the shops. So the shops lay off the workers and close down.

With those working not getting paid, and most others laid off, their is far less tax revenue to pay the national debt. So Greece is forced to borrow more, while cutting more sources of revenue.


Do you really want the right wing's austerity program here? I'd rather see the highway system repaired, new bridges built, high speed rail easing air traffic congestion, and infrastructure rebuilds that can save people from natural disasters. Do you really think FEMA should be privatized, possibly by a foreign owner?

Austerity should have been their mantra years ago. Uncontrolled spending comes to an end when there is nothing left to spend. Poor Greece. Poor America.

Obama is the obstructionist. Followed by Harry Reid. Or didn't you understand that this is how the Government works ?

Moron.

STFU

In other words, you don't understand that when the people pulled the house from Obama, it was the majority of people living in a majority of districts that made sure we had damage control on Mr. Hope and Change's radical agenda.

Well, now you know.

STFU...BTW, I took you down another notch. I'm hoping we can get you in the red before Tuesday.

Yea, let's compare the United States to a country whose economy is smaller than some U.S. cities.

No, quite the opposite. Greece instituted the same austerity programs that the teatards want. That path destroys jobs. No jobs, no taxes. No taxes, no way to pay the bills. No way to pay the bills, more debt.

If Obama's plan had been followed fewer people would need to draw from welfare, more people would be working, more people would have spending money, more businesses would be created to accommmodate them, more people would be paying taxes, more money would be available to pay down the debt.
