Thank you. I guess when you are in a hole, the first thing is to stop digging it deeper. My own criticism of Obama is that he has doubled and tripled down on the errors of his predecessors: borrowing and spending far too much. I do NOT see that this is doing the middle class any good. A real solution? Painful, because it would go against just about everybody's grain. Partial answers: a return to the gold standard, abandonment of "too big to fail," exploitation of domestic energy. The last would provide real jobs, as well as tax revenue, and have other good effects.
