Obama and Economic Shutdown

The country has been in a state of economic shutdown since Obama took over.

The Tea Party and the Republicans didn't increase the debt by 57 PERCENT. Obama did that.

When Mr. Obama became president in January 2009, the total federal debt stood at $10.6 trillion. This week, it hit $16.7 trillion — an increase of 57 percent. In the same time frame under President George W. Bush, total federal debt rose 38 percent. Under President Clinton, it rose 32 percent.
The Tea Party isn't responsible for nearly all of the new jobs created since Obama took office being part-time. The buck stops with Obama.
Since January 2009 the country has added a net total of 270,000 full-time jobs, but it has added 1.9 million part-time jobs, according to the House Ways and Means Committee.

The numbers come as Republicans argue that the president’s health care law is pushing businesses to save money and push workers into shorter schedules to avoid the penalties that come from hiring more full-time workers, who under the law will be required to be covered with health care insurance.
Bottom line: Obama and the Democrats and the fools who voted for them are responsible for the economic shutdown we've been suffering for YEARS.


Obama is holding us hostage.
