President Obama's Economic Improvement Plan

I do not believe the President Obama and his team will be able to improve the economy because there is no way to improve the prosperity of the lower and middle class without also improving the prosperity of the rich.  If a policy will improve the prosperity of the rich, the policy will not be considered by the Democrats in power.

Budget Solving Values

I live in Minnesota and an advertisement started running that summarizes progressive thought perfectly:

I completely agree with the first statement in this ad: "How we solve our budget problem will say a lot about our values". Let’s give nothing up, expect all of the same benefits we received in good times, not pay more for them in difficult times, and expect to pass all of the cost onto others like the rich. If this sounds like a good plan, it says a lot about your values.


If you want to cut spending but are unwilling to cut programs that you like, than you are not serious about cutting spending.
