    Manufacturing orders are up? I just read the number, if you take out defense orders, consumer durable manufacturing orders are down. Again, what is this guy talking about and who put him on the finance committee? Certainly doesn't give me confidence moving forward.

    Dem. Tom many times will he repeat himself? Very troublesome to listen to such a politician. Real estate market improving? Jobs outlook actually encouraging? Amazing!

      Clearly the man is completely clueless. No wonder the Democrats may lose seats in the fall, they just look completely out of touch with reality, completely clueless and without vision.

    First of all, Manufacturing is no longer the basis for our economy, over 60% of our economy is now Service. Corporate profits have not translated in to jobs for the past 5 years. What world is this guy living on.

    Why is a Democrat talking Deficit Reduction and Austerity. The Deficits is not the problem, jobs are. Cutting the Deficit does NOT create jobs...

    I love how bankers are hoping to get a bank door stimulus from Bernake and the Fed, and you have this congressman on talking about austerity for the rest of us. In other words, another bail out for Wall Street and the rest of us get screwed.

    OK, need to correct this. A Fed stimulus is not a true stimulus. It essentially gives no interest loans to banks to prop stocks up. The Stock market is NOT a reflection of the economy or growth. Propping stocks up so wall street can make money does not help any of us. Not to mention that most of the jobs created in the Jobs report on Friday were Part Time Jobs, as Part Time jobs reached an all time high in the US. Since 2007 (beginning of the great recession) the market lost 6.9 million full time jobs and created 3.1 million part time jobs.
