John Boehner’s Economic Argument Contradicted By Market Indicators, Government Reports

Bloomberg News said “[During a May 9th speech] House Speaker John Boehner, [gave] Wall Street leaders his prescriptions for growing the U.S. economy and reducing the nation’s debt [in which he] built his case on several assertions that are contradicted by market indicators and government reports.” Read more here.

At this point, I believe both the left and the right are practicing “voodoo economics” (to quote Bush I) when it comes to the the United States’ economy and ever increasing debt. I’m sure that the close-to-correct numbers for either are somewhere in-between what the politician­s have been spouting to us. Of course, that is if we can actually truly discover what the in-between number is which could be anywhere between fact and fantasylan­d.

All I know is that I’m tired of the talking, the whining, the complainin­g, the pontificat­ing, the arguments, the fake outrage, the meetings, the commission­s, the soundbites­, the polls, and the town halls that Congress and our presidents have put us through year after year. Enough. We are not children who can’t handle bad news. We already know it’s bad, many of us are living proof. So stop wasting our time and do your damn job.
