    No. It is simple. When you are out of money, you STOP spending money! In the next 6 months we will ALL begin to feel the financial effects from THIS administration's policies. Just wait until we see a huge jump in inflation, food costs, ins costs etc.j

    I am so sick of everyday Americans continuing to blame the government for this mess. I'm not saying Dems are perfect but they've done more for us in the past two years than Republicans did in eight, and PS Dem control of Congress from 07 to 09 doesn't count.... due to all of Bush's excessive vetoes. The majority of blame for the recession lies with Wall Street and Big Banks, which are supported by ... Republicans ... as a society we have proven ourselves to be politically impotent. Recovery is on track, but it's taking too long, so let's go back to the political party that allowed us to get in this mess in the first place ... that makes sense. I hope every moronic idiot who voted Republican or Teabagger tonight feels the intense sting of poverty very soon.

    The American people have given the Republicans a second chance – a second chance to screw up the country and bring us closer to the brink of destruction where Bush/Cheney had us from 2000 – 2008. Personally, I hope the capture of the house wakes up the leaders of the Democratic Party and teaches them a lesson, i.e., you can't win a mandate from a majority of the American people and then turn your backs on them and expect them to continue supporting you. It isn't going to happen. And, President Obama more than any other Democratic leader better learn this lesson and learn it quick.
