I'm not into economics much, I'm on social security disability due to injuries and I fear a "Pink Slip" every month! But if the goals of Obama is for the US to become what been called a "Nanny State" then why would "saving the day" and not allowing this nation to slid over, or plummet over this cliff be of any consequences to him. If making this nation into a "Socialist or near Communist Nation with himself as the Big Junta" then he's right on target! If we go over the "cliff" and the Political Poo hits the fan, riots, closures of corporation and chaos, he declares Marshal Law. He becomes the dictator and sets aside the Constitution of course for the sake of the people. Is this not his goal from all along? It fits Chicago politics!
