Having said that, reading the criticism is fascinating. I hope that it's off the mark. I want these policies to work, and so should you. But I don't know that they will. I think anyone posting on these forums claiming to command such expertise that they can flatly condemn Obama's policies thus far is standing a little too high on the soapbox. There are plenty of credentialed and respected economists who agree and plenty who disagree. That means it's controversial, not that it's obviously wrong. I will say this in support of his doings thus far: at least he's getting busy.
The U.S. Government is the largest employer in the United States, hiring about 2.0 percent of the nation's work force.

True both political parties were hellbent on making this happen. Haha... we elected a Demoncrat, to save us from Republican spending??
Two sides of the same coin.
What worries me... Look past this current problem, but instead to where it is going.
During the Great Depression, many extended families lived together in a single home. AND most families had gardens.
This time, I think we will be looking at most people losing their property. No place for a garden to create food...
Most land in the continental US is owned by government. We would not even be allowed to squat on a small square of land, and garden there.
They have much more control over the resources this time around. I consider the last depression, a training exercise. They have it perfected this time around...
You make it sound like we could just call up a congressman and make it all go away. That's not going to happen, but that's not what you really want anyway. You want Obama supporters to admit they were wrong so you can say "I told you so". Right? Even if they did, what would that do to help resolve the situation? Nothing.
It's a bandage to stop the bleeding so the patient doesn't die on the table before surgery...
Take your assumptions and shove them where the sun doesn't shine

Republicans are fine ones to be speaking.
Doomsday started in the past and Obama's budget is just a continuation of it.

The thing is... if Obama's policies actually work... and anyone in their right mind is going to want them to work... the GOP and those posting here... will never admit it.
