Many would blame federal debt as a drag upon the recovering economy.

Many others would blame Obama's policies.

I blame both.

Yeah the do nothing congress when democrats were in charge. Never passed a budget, rubber stamped anything their master told them to do.

At least now they're passing budgets and asking questions and demanding answers. Something the do nothing senate (democrat controlled) and the borrow and spend us into oblivion president (also democrat) continue to buck and try to scare minorities and poor people into believing they are too stupid to survive without "their" blessed handouts and welfare programs. None of which build people up and make them self sufficient. Just more reliant.

Recession ended June 2009; Mr. Obama was the right man to take office in Jan. 2009.

I am pretty sure the millions who are unemployed or underemployed and those of us who are self employed and taking home far less then we did in 2008, know the recession is not over.

I know why we are not recovering like almost any other dip in the economy.

First, and fore most Obamacare is one massive tax and healthcare cost increase. We are not stupid, we know that making the working class provide "free" healthcare to all the nonworking, and the illegals will cost trillions as will the hiring of even more governmental employees to administer this monstrosity.

Second, taxes have increased at a disproportionate rate to income. While our income has decreased our taxes have continued to go increase.

Third, the ever expanding number of new regulations is choking the life out of our anemic economy. Every day there are more and more regulations each one with an additional cost to employers to implement.

Fourth,the bank bailout did not help the economy. It stopped the lending of capital to small and medium businesses keeping those who could be able to expand, from getting the loans.
