    You can't have the deficit spending this President has done....with no government cuts....and call the economy rebounding...and for those who continue to moan about the last 8 yrs...why didn't he just pay off the trillion dollar debt he was left...with all the Pork money he gave out in Jan and Feb. No ...that wasn't done...Now we have amnesty, government taking over student college loans, taxing carbon , taxing small and large businesses, on and on....hello ...rebound ...printing and borrowing money. Hello.

    I don't belive recovery can happen when businesses are still closing and people still being let go at alarming rates. Watch out for rising energy prices and inflation.

    Dear Mr. President
    I'm no expert, but
    If a person having difficulty to pay a 30 years mortgage, why can the bank extend the note to 40 years? this will lower monthly.

    As long as the monopoly OIL companies and the GOP are not in power, of course the economy will definitely rebound. They've been carrying Gay and Abortion weapons to attack this country and put the Oil in power to destroy American economy.

    GOP stand for:
    1) Greedy Oil Politicians
    2) Greedy Oil Punks
    3) Gangbanging Our Pockets

    Your headers are almost always totally misleading.
    Who in this world or America thinks the economy is "rebounding"?
    "Signs of recovery", " Are economic policies working for America"
    Might be more Journalistically correct.
    But then again you think the sound bite has to newsworthy and create a shouting match not a debate by your participants ( pundits)
    Get real and find a way to stop 3 people speaking at once! Its boring and becomes unintelligble to the viewer/ listener.
    Don't know about you but I cannot understand 3 people ( or two) talking a the same time!!
    Controversy vs sensible debate does not work for me in the current crisis.

    There is so much talk about how the ecn is hurting, and we are waiting for a change to help us out why is there not more talk about the hemp ind? New job can be created. The public needs to be informed about the true facts about marijuana and stop to stop broadcasting peoples opinions that are scare tatics and unsupported. The debate on marijuana was very short. I would like to see longer segments that gave both sides ample amounts of time to display only factual info on the subject. I already know all the things regulating marijuana can do for the country, the general public should be informed of this truth; creates jobs, tax revenues, less power to organized crime, and people will have more respect for the law. Laws and policies should reflect what the people want. Scare tatics will not work forever, let the truth be shown so we can all benefit from it!

    Economic rebound? Why does our goverment contiue to issue work visas to non americans when there is a local americans that can fill positions. The fact that work visas are issued to companies to fill positions like "bus drivers" does not help the american economy
