Is Obama Taking On Too Much At Once?
Accusing Obama of "over-reaching" and not focusing on the economy is just another Right-Wing Talking Point. The areas on which Obama is focusing -- re-starting the flow of credit --health care, energy, infra-structure -- are all important elements in re-building America's economy. Over the past eight years, Republican policies of tax cuts, de-regulation and laissez faire have shattered the financial system. In the last Quarter of 2008, our economy was in free-fall, and now the stock market is tanking as more and more of the economic problems created under eight years of Conservative rule continue to emerge. Obama is taking the right steps. Republicans simply want to keep going in the same discredited direction -- more tax cuts for the rich.
