Great opinion piece here ... in a rather simplistic form it shows why Obama's Keynesian economic solution is not working and will not work. His new plan will not work either. One Reason Why Keynesian Stimuli Aren't Working: They Aren't Keynesian - Hit & Run : Reason Magazine The last paragraph says it all but read it ... it's good stuff without the boring. yeah I know the left wants tax increases but tax increases does not solve the bloatedness that is our federal government. They need to cut costs and slash the budget just as businesses and the rest of us have had to do. Tax increases will simply lead to more spending - let's face it give them more and they will spend more to stay in office - they are what they are and we need to force them to change. Until they change everyone will continue to stifle the economy due to deleveraging.
