Comments on: The First Draft: Economy steadying? http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2009/08/27/the-first-draft-economy-steadying/ Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: brian lee http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2009/08/27/the-first-draft-economy-steadying/comment-page-1/#comment-395864 Sat, 29 Aug 2009 01:48:16 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/frontrow/?p=19440#comment-395864 One of the problems that people are aware of is the stagnation that occurs when you have a combination of government jobs plus union activity .Classic example,i walk my dogs in a park here in CA. The park maintenance is contracted to a private contractor who have two workers who diligently get on with their work and do a excellent job in the park.Today a city parks and recreation truck pulls up to do some minor inspection.Two guys rolled out of the truck not just over weight but actually twice the body weight they should have been.It is obvious that these guy were not physically fit enough to do any manual work,and as a matter of fact they did not,but this one of the worries that we know will prevail when there is no competitive process. examine productivity in a country like France and you will see the direction we are heading,SAY NO TO A GOVERNMENT MONOPOLY IN HEALTH CARE

The economy is swirling the drain and that’s OK as long as the Crystal Balls keep saying it should be worse! Shrinking at 1% is steady to improving because some twit says they thought it should have been more… So now are you are going to claim the 1.6 TRILlion deficit is actually a surplus because someone thought it would be 1.8T??
What would you be saying if the Republicans were in charge?? Check your record, I already know what it says…
