The 'Fundamental CHANGE' that President Obama wants to implement is not complete. I believe we will see a much more rapidly changing situation over the next four years. I doubt most of us are going to like it. But public support was never part of the plan. "We need to pass this bill so that YOU can find out what is in it." This quote sums it up well.

With the generally upbeat spending reports on black Friday and cyber-Monday, Gallup paints a different point of view in its most recent poll that shows U.S. Consumer Spending Holds Steady, Consistent With 2011

Americans' self-reported daily spending averaged $73 in November, essentially on par with September and October. It is also similar to the $71 Americans spent last November and slightly higher compared with November 2010 and 2009 -- but still much lower than in November 2008.
