WASHINGTON, June 22 (Reuters) - Democratic leaders called on Wednesday for additional spending to boost the sluggish U.S. economy, setting up a fresh hurdle for bipartisan efforts in Washington to head off a government debt default this summer.

Duh.  We just haven't spent enough money to turn the economy around yet.  Sheesh people.  Get with the program.
For those whose sarcasm meters might need to be calibrated - please do so now...

Fuck them. Fuck them brutally! They will be crushed this election. When we get all the branches, we need to completely crush the unions and destroy their funding. It's time to go scorched earth.

I think this time they should try giving the money to people that make over 200,000. Maybe they will buy different stuff with it and it will work this time. ( I am not in that category )

To me this is treasonous behavior. To deliberately endorse accelerating the bankruptcy of America is unimaginable. WTF is the matter with these people and how do they keep getting elected?

According to the CBO, a few decades at best.

No.

We would have been better off if we had not spent billions to protect unionized teacher and police officer jobs.

We would have been better off we had allowed GM and Chrysler to die off and the UAW with them.

We would have been better off if we had gotten rid of the EPA and their absurd rules and regulations strangling businesses.

We would have been better off i we had allowed companies to drill for oil in Alaska and off the coasts of California and Florida.

We would have been better off we had not done TARP and allowed those funds to be used to pay off Goldman Sachs and other financial derivative bets.

We would have been better off had we not printed billions of dollars and devalued our dollar.

Simply put,  We would have been better off if the .gov would stay the fuck out of the economy and just let the economy correct itself.

The only reason that it didn't work before, is because they gave the money to the banks and the loser auto companies.

Government spending is a stimulus.  It DOES work if the money gets into the system.  Hardly anything of the previous stim packages made it into peoples' pockets.

There is no money creation without government spending.  Again, the problem is the government did not spend money.  They gave away money.
