A+ fastpitch!Let's face it. Both major strength parties are to blame for our current financial mess. Bush starts out by basically helping out his family's financial deals with helping the Federal reserve banks. Obama follows with the other banking conglomerates, the auto industries, and dozens of other places. Neither one of the Presidents caused a flicker with-in the economic recovery with their doings. Every school kid knows that the only thing that spurs the economy is spending buy the masses. The place the parties forgot about. I'm sure everyone has heard how if every family in the US received $50G the economy would have taken off and there would have also been savings. The total cost would have been much less then what it cost us. Fix the auto business? Sure, give every family a voucher for $25,000.00 towards a new US Car. That would have cost less and gotten the auto industry up and running again. Of course, if they didn't use the voucher for your cars, you lose and that is just. If you can't make it and continue to make mistake after mistake, why should you even be in business? Same for the financial institutions. Too big to fail? They did fail their investors. Not themselves of course. Hey, how about this? Since the oil companies were making record profits mainly from the auto consumption of fuels, why not had them bail out the auto companies? They work hand in had for profits any way.
Our current problems are in the Congress and Senate. In the fact they refuse to work together. Everyone blames the other side all the time for not cooperating. No, they don't. That is the problem. The US government hasn't worked for the people for a long long time. There is no improvement coming up in the future either. Won't matter who is president, the other party will try to block whatever they can. They think their job is to make sure he/she isn't reelected. What a waste of 4 years. The entire House and Senate needs to have a do over. A place on the ballet that says none of the above and then more start over for the position.
Make pork illegal and has to go through proper government channels for approvals. Stop spending all the money on worthless projects. Don't toss out Obama's health care but tweak it so it isn't going to be so costly for all Americans now that we are at a point we need to start paying for it. Everyone knows and proclaims there won"t be enough for Social Security too long into the future. At the same time government reduces the percentage of what's taken out for your SS contribution. Who was the mastermind of that stupidity? We really need to seriously look at a flat tax if we want to get things in line. Get's rid of all those loopholes and everyone pays their fair share. Get people back to work.
Thanks for allowing me this rant. I normally don't go on like this and happily because there is so much more I could say, I will stop.
