Yes, the debt is a problem. Rewarding bankers and wealthy folks won’t help, been there and still going there. Bankers aren’t lending, and the rich are not bothering with messy stuff like manufacturing and construction. Letting corporations spend wildly on campaigns won’t help. Every dime the Koch brothers ever made won’t help. Lobbyists won’t help. Palin and Bachmann mania damned sure won’t help.
What will help? Good, old-fashioned socialism. I believe that we should have something like the W.P.A., just like during the 1930’s.
When we have millions of willing and able people looking for ANY kind of work, along with crumbling infrastructure. There is no excuse to not spend some money. Until these folks get jobs, and those already working achieve enough income equality to have any cash for “extras”. You remember “extras”?; vacations, an occasional night out, good cuts of red meat, Ah, the good ol’ days, way back when Slick Willy was the prez…..(it’s still the economy, stupid).
And what ever happened to “green energy” and mass transportation projects? These things need, nay must, happen soon. Perfect for what the USA needs now.
PUT PEOPLE TO WORK. The private employers aren’t hiring, that’s a fact. Let the government help get us off our asses and into work. ~sekanblogger
