BP: Our well is NOT leaking. Much.
Halliburton: Earnings up 83%. The future? Don't ask.
Obama: Extend jobless benefits, Senate. Senate Republicans: With what money?
TARP inspector report: Obama, you closed too many car dealerships without considering economic impact. Obama: You issued a report without considering the factory jobs we saved, the car parts jobs we saved, the pension stocks we saved.
“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VABEFORE YOU GO
