Republicans Intent on Economic Disaster

Republicans Intent on Economic Disaster

Not content with “deregulating” the world financial system into Recession, the Republican Party is stabbing their own failed President in the back, dithering as more U.S. homes are foreclosed and more American jobs are lost. Perhaps Republicans would have like the economic plan better if President Bush called it the “Economic Surge.”

Of course, if the Republicans had accepted the economic compromise worked out the Administration and Congress, John McCain would have to drop his bogus excuse for avoiding Friday’s debate with Senator Obama. 

Washington Mutual is the latest U.S. bank failure this year, actually the country’s largest savings and loan. Someone bought it as a storage facility for a large Beanie Babie Collection.

    There are many scholars who are now speaking out against the bailout and how it will not fix anything.

    Personally, I think if you have to spend money to stimulate the economy, re-invest the money in a new deal type approach, and lets get start producing goods here at home again.

    Ned Flanders: The Japanese were not able to end their real estate-based recession until they added large-scale public works projects (roads, bridges, etc.) to their bank bailout strategy. Lord knows our aging infrastructure could use renewal.
