U.S. Small-Business owners pessimistic post-election. “…intention of 21% of small-business owners to reduce the number of jobs at their company over the next 12 months. …potential for significantly higher unemployment rate in 2013 and all of the accompanying negatives that fewer jobs imply for the economy – particularly given the importance of small-business hiring to the U.S. job market.” Jobs, hiring, who cares? We’re all gettin’ free health care!

Those negative numbers to the right can’t be a good thing.

It’s a shame that Ron Paul was cheated out of getting elected.

I needed that laugh!

However Pres O is going to push a HUGE stimulus to counteract his tax hikes which will TOTALLY fix the economy. Therefore, all these businesses laying off workers are just RAAACIST and doing everything they can to make our Lord and Savior fail.

You mean like the lard ass, the Cheetos addiction, the inflatable Ron Paul love doll, the addiction to leeching of the people who work, the inability to string together a coherent thought?

Naw, he’s just a typical libturd; Other than the fact he is to stupid to realize it and thinks he is a libertarian.

crowley is either a professional wind-up poster, or he was allowed to leave the home without his meds. He’s too obsessed with 1 or 2 points to be legit.

I’m thinking they let him out of his straight-jacket a few times a week to post.

From what I’ve seen of this slobbering mess of a human being’s previous posts it would be challenged to run a hot dog stand with 2 hot dogs and a crowd lined up. Fat, Liberal, and Stupid is no way to go through life.

I’m excited for all of the folks touting Clinton tax rates as part of 90s economy to also unveil their plan for new massive tech boom.

You know if GHW Bush had won in 1992, there’d be no internet/tech boom & the recession that already ended would have gone on forever.

If we go back to the tax rate during the Clinton time in office can we also go back to the same level of spending?

Geithenr was talking on FOX News with Chris Wallace yesterday, saying how the Clinton tax rates weren’t damaging to the economy, but he forgets, Clinton inherited Ronald Reagan’s economy!

Damn straight! Funny how the media spins a twelve-year period around the Democrat Feurher.

Clinton also had a Republican Congress to deal with.
