Take all the time you need to think it over, consult with your little pals.
Wow, the depth of your perception is unequaled....LOL....

Get me? Got Me? Good.
At least the DNC is acknowledging the issue. Unlike the RNC who has for the last few years been very consistent in claiming the lack of jobs is the fault of Obama and the democrats !!

The DNC has acknowledged that passed a healthcare bill that is imploding. That's big of them. When the ACA was put into law small-business (70% of business) stopped hiring. Small business expansion became almost unheard of. The majority of hiring was in the service job arena.

That is getting to be pathetic. You guys are really realizing what a total ass you elected and were cheering so you need to throw poo at Hillary and/or Obama every time your low-life hero is shown to be the ass he is because you got nothing else.
I would be happy to look at the Reagan and GWB military expeditures, they contributed to budget deficits and increases in the national debt.

In Reagan's case his deficit stimulus spending, of which military spending was significant, spending was less than $2 trillion and real gdp increased by more than $2 trillion.

With GWB, deficit stimulus spending was nearly $5 trillion and real gdp growth was $2 trillion.

Under Obama deficit stimulus spending was nearly $10 trillion plus another $5 trillion in monetary stimulus from the FED and real gdp growth was $2.2 trillion.

To put it in perspective the unprecedented economic stimulus that the Obamaconomy received was more than twice the US total cost to fight WWII in today's dollars.

We are a democratic-republic. It suppose to be their responsibility.

It would be okay if the democrats weren't losing. Even then you should be specific.

I am.

Then perhaps you should have said just that in the first place. *shrug*

Since when is it solely the responsibility of the DNC to come up with a solution?
Don't see the RNC coming up with any brilliant ideas/plans.

The offshoring, downsizing and outsourcing of America manufacturing were all well underway long before Raygun and Bush Sr. started the NAFTA negotiations. Bush Jr added no less than EIGHT additional free trade agreements to the mix. Raygun gave millions of illegals amnesty. Bush tried to do it again late in his second term and certainly did little to deal with those here illegally. But then again neither did Clinton or Obama. Let's not even discuss the housing market crash and burn and the damage that did to the economy. Especially considering that housing and autos are two of our biggest economic engines.

The result is millions of factories and tens of millions of our best paying jobs have been shipped out of the country. Millions more jobs are held by people that shouldn't be in the country. Millions of jobs were wiped out by the housing crash. I've been reading articles since the 1980's talking about how we were transitioning to a "service" economy. When you say most new jobs are in the service sector all you're dong is confirming a 30 year trend.

But by all means keep telling yourself that our current economic malaise is entirely the fault of Obama and the ACA.

I did mentioned my point about the DNC message not being clear in my post #16 and #29. Geeez Hollywood, I'm starting to have 2nd thoughts about you.

That's an odd question. What country you want us to be? North Korea? Again, we are a Democratic-Republic. Our Founding Fathers had horses shot from underneath them to set up this country. Don't say crazy stuff like that please. Thank you.

We already know the solutions. It's our representatives jobs to implement what We The People advocate for. Most democrats (American all together) want free collage. Now it's our politicians job to fight for it.

The US is not a democratic republic; it is based on a strict federalism model and that is why it is not the federal government's responsibility.
Thanks from Sabcat
