There are two problems with America's economy right now:
Real wages haven't gone up in decades, which is squeezing the low and middle class. They're having to spend on credit to buy, which is a recipe for disaster.
In addition to that, free trade agreements (Yes, Clinton signed NAFTA, I know. He also signed the DMCA. I hate him for it, because I'm not beholden to a party and I think for myself, unlike those that just blame everything on one guy...... hint hint)... anyway, free trade agreements made it easy to move jobs overseas and not be tarriffed on the goods coming back in.
Really, these are kind of one problem. Wages are low and there are no good jobs. The American Dream is a little broken, and I know who broke it. Hint, it's not immigrants. Yes, the government DID pass those laws, I'm glad you all noticed. Now....
WHY did they? Who asked them to? Who paid them to?
It's not Obama. Moneyed interests want more money. They did the logical thing and squeezed their workers. It just so happens that they're so big that their workers are .... Everyone in the country. So now we're fucked and they make more money.
If you want to blame something on Obama, lets get angry that he hasn't been pushing for the kinds of things that actually WOULD help the economy. He needs to push congress to regulate the banks. He needs to push congress to get some boots on the ground infrastructure projects going to help unemployment. He needs to stop making deals with people that won't work with him at all. He needs to grow a pair.
Yes, I hate CEOs. They don't do shit that any of us can't do. They don't deserve their pay. I work for a large company. The management have been driving it into the ground... I can do that. :D
