Who is writing this material? It’s a hoot no matter who it was. Tell us, is there a group of people who sit around the table and make up these numbers? Are we really expected to believe that the economy is getting better? I find it an exceptionally difficult claim to accept especially when I see California getting deeper and deeper in the hole every day. This is NOT a sign of an improving economy. If you don’t believe me, just ask everyone who has given up looking for employment and are in the process of loosing their homes or have already. Recovery is a fairy tale and everybody knows it, so give up on the propaganda already.

The only thing that is a hoot is the suggestion that if a deal is not made the country will return to a recession. Umm, No! Tax revenue will flow in from both the wealth and the middle class, because taxes will go up on all. Then, an immediate adjustment will be made to reduce the burden on the middle class and things will be as they should be. It is just the longer road to the same destination. The GOP can cooperate or be drug there like a toddler kicking and screaming. It appears they are going to take the path of most resistance.
