I guess what he is trying to say is that in order for this bailout to be a wash, GM stock would have to hit nearly 55-60 dollars a share. Until it does, its a loss either way you add, subtract or divide.

BIN LADEN IS DEAD AND AL-QAEDA IS ALIVE IN LIBYA

GM IS ON LIFE SUPPORT AND CHRYSLER IS ITALIAN.

Obamacare has not raised any prices. It gives insurance companies, and healthcare providers MORE CUSTOMERS! I'd like to see your source. The stimulus AND bailout WORKED: it kept a recession from turning into a depression, and it saved hundreds of thousands of jobs. Quit with the Fox News talking points.

betrump - Nope, Obamacare has only created NEW taxes! Just wait until you have to pay a 3 1/2% federal tax when you go to sell your house beginning in JANUARY! You think the economy is bad now? Just wait . . . .

Perhaps a more appropriate tag would be WINDBAG. Here's FactCheck.org saying you're full of bull: http://www.factcheck.org/2010/04...

For over $250K. How many people do you know that make that? I'm glad you're gonna sell your home for over a quarter of a million. Good for you. I don't know how you could have ever afforded it since we're all so much worse off...(note sarcasm)

Dr. Information

So because you make over $250K, you should have to fork out even more of your hard earned money? Do you honestly think people that make six figures just sit at home and collect a check?

Be
Are you Ralph Wiggums female alterego
Personal attacks and diatribs are all you've got.
You give links yet ignore those of others that do not agree with your personal agenda.
Obamacare is full of new taxes and requirements that'll cost the people hundreds of billions and kill the miniscule recorory you have been towting.
Taxes on medical apliances, on health insurance plans, a 3 1/2% tax on the sale of homes starting jan.1st and requiring dental and optical coverage are just a few of what is in it.

betrump

My personal agenda is nothing more than TRUTH. All you've done is repeat the Fox News/Glen Beck fear-mongering. I'm simply here to fight ignorance.

How does it feel beating yourself up?

My family's health insurance now costs less and covers more. Sorry about yours.

@ betrump:

The stimulus worked"?

"Shovel ready wasn't as uh shovel ready as we thought." - Pres. Obama

How many more trillions of dollars in debt should the U.S. create in order to produce a few million more jobs?

If spending creates prosperty - get your credit cards out and spend your way to wealth! :)

betrump

Yes, it worked. For example, the UK decided against bailouts, and used austerity instead. Their economic growth is flatline. The stimulus stopped the bleeding. It saved thousands and thousands of jobs.

The stimulus idea didn't work because companies that got it didn't invest their money in American Made products. They again shipped money overseas giving work to people in other countries. The companies that did use the stimulus money in America benefited and it did give jobs to America. A certain transit system I know of got the money bought American bus which gave jobs to people in Cali used Green energy stuff gave lot of jobs to people in U.S.
Stimulus only failed because it wasn't invested in what it was meant for.

Dozens of examples? Where. I looked and have not found one.

@ betrump:

No, Pres. Obama would say that grass was orange.

You argue like a child sometimes.

betrump

And the pot calls the kettle black, does the Paulbot.

Dr. Information

@betrump. I would like to see the dozens of examples as well. Just asking because I rarely see anything.

betrump

READ THE STUPID BLOGS! I'VE PROVIDED ALL KINDS OF LINKS, OR AT THE VERY LEAST, SOURCES! WHY IS THAT SO HARD FOR YOU PEOPLE TO GET? NO WONDER POLITICS HAS YOU LEFT IN THE DARK...

Windy

arnmcrmn - Don't you remember Obama's campaign promise the last time that he would bring ALL of the troops home within his FIRST year in office? Wow, it sure has been a long year!

betrump

Another example of not checking the facts. AFTER that campaign statement, Bush and the Iraqi Government signed a SOFA ('Status of Forces Agreement') which set a TIMETABLE for the WITHDRAWAL of American troops: Obama followed that agreement. You wanna complain, write Bush. Or maybe just do a little research first.

Windy

Oh, that's right, it's all BUSH's fault!! Is Obama going to continue to blame BUSH for everything IF he gets re-elected or will he find a new scapegoat?

betrump

Truth. It's like garlic to a vampire...lol

propman

Then you should turn into a bat and fly away, Betrump

Windy

Lies. The "truth" of Democrats. LOL

betrump

You're right...I just made up all that stuff about the Status of Forces Agreement. I guess I should apologize for making you look ill-informed. But I won't.

arnmcrmn

@betrump, just like Obama said Romney didn't agree with the S of FA...which in fact he is record saying he supported it.....Spin it Obie, spin.
