Like I have said for two years now. The economy will not get out of this rut until the Govt opens up their purse and starts doing what they always have done best... SPEND MONEY!!! Based on conservative logic, our economy should be thriving right now! Time to drop this ridiculous conservative ideology and start acting like Reagan and Bush! Funny how Republican's are blocking every attempt for Obama to increase jobs and economic growth and then complaining about Obama's job. Great tactic they got going on. If Obama were allowed to spend like previous President's, we would be fine right now.
