Our issue is our trade deficit, and we do not make any where near as much as we consume.

Every report I read is about how private business is laying off and government is hiring.

Guess what friends, the government is funded by taxes on private business, either directly or indirectly thru payroll taxes paid from people employeed by private business.

If the United States thinks they can just print money, and create weatlh, they need to look at Germany in 1931, this is where we are headed
