With all of the people getting laid off, the republican propaganda of less spending equals more jobs doesnt fly at all. Bush/Cheney put us in the deficit column from Clintons surplus. But Bush did make it impossible for Obama to succeed so that it looks like the democrats are the problem. But the people are seeing through it.....republicans too.

Why is it that business is failing HERE? Why is it that jobs are being loss HERE? Why is it that taxes are increasing HERE? Why are the surpluses being evaporated? Why are houses being lost and and standing empty HERE? The environment for business continues to be decimated and the problem is ANYONE or PARTY that has contributed to it.
