Not to mention the fact that many Republicans in congress, including Ryan, voted for stimulus package that was nearly as large as the one that eventually was passed. So, whenever they say that the stimulus was too much money or generational theft or whatever they claim, they should have to answer to the fact that they were also comfortable with borrowing ~700 billion dollars for the sake of stimulus.

This is also in addition to the fact that Ryan requested money from the Stimulus Package that actually passed, but that's a different story...

Paul Ryan is the worst, Palin was less offensive. That Time article doesn't even include his 2002 impassioned speech arguing for a Bush stimulus package.

Nope, he is literally my least favorite politician in America. I'm sure plenty disagree, just my opinion.

Borrow $10k per family. Family net worth ignoring national debt goes up $10k.

Does this really demonstrate the policy is successful?

Would you also recommend taking antibiotics every day? Would you recommend never taking them?

you are never going to get sides to agree it was good or bad idea. To most clear thinkers there is only 1 obvious conclusion anyway...so now that the beltway boys have had the frat party and everyone has gone home they need to find a way to pay for it...but oh yea the dumbass never thought about that.

Hold on silly little people this one is gonna hurt for a long time.
"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America 's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America 's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, "the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better."

Not sure how we get QE3 if QE2 was so effective?


Or is LLY's analogy correct and QE2 actually allowed us to get sick again?

If QE2 got us sick, then our disease would be inflation. Since that's not our problem, then no, QE2 wasn't what got us sick.

As I've posted before this recession was caused by a major financial bubble and financial bubble recessions are the worst kind and the recovery from them is different than from a recession caused by high interest rates such as the Reagan Recession was. The last major one in the US was the Great Depression.

This is an excellent article from Reinhart & Rogoff on financial bubble recessions and how the US recovery from this one mirrors past ones in the US and in other countries.
