They do not (yet) owe a sworn and sacred duty to the American public to establish policies that promote job creation and economic growth. At the rate Obama is performing, one of them will, soon.

I think those elected to the House of Representatives should have introduced a job creation bill of some kind.

Obama hasn't done such a bad job in my opinion. He is forced to work with irrational people who are trying their best to destroy the economy so that they can win the next election (far right-wingers). I think he has givin in to much, if i was in that position i would have told the republicans to **** themselves awhile ago.

I don't have high hopes for an economic rebound. It's doesn't really matter who is in office either. Neither of the two big business parties (Dems or Repubs) represent my objective interests or the objective interests of the vast majority of us.

I don't think there will be a recovery. I think things are going to get progressively worse until people are out in the streets. It's already started. Last Winter public workers in Wisconsin were out in the street. This was related to the upheavals of the youth and workers in Tunisia and Egypt.

Recently, 45,000 Verizon workers were on strike until the unions (CWA and IBEW) betrayed them. Yep, things are gonna get worse.

Sorry, don't mean to be the voice of doom or anything.

Yes it has started. Please don't give up. Nothing will get better until WE do our best. I will join with many thousands of nurses across the country day after tomorrow - Join Nurses Across the Country on September 1 to Demand a Tax on Wall Street - YouTube

Maybe this isn't to far for you to go if you can - Sept. 1, 2011 - Nationwide List of Actions | National Nurses United

Kentucky

Thanks for the links Herring RN. Hazard is too far away for me to travel.

I have some question about this movement. Do these nurses believe that pressure can be put on the Dems or the Repubs to "tax wall street"? Presumably, they want to do this to fund social programs and the like, is that correct?

If they think that they can pressure the government to act on the behalf of the vast majority of us then I'm afraid that I'll just have to sit this one out. The days of the "New Deal" and Keynesian reform are over.

These nurses seem to have their hearts in the right place - but it seems they do not recognize the great state of decay the world economic system is in.

They have in the past and didn't seem to be all that successful. In fact, the most recent republican president failed miserably, plunged us into a recession, wasted away a huge surplus, put us into debt and put us in a war against a country that was not responsible for 9/11, letting the architect of that get off Scott free. He also befriended and coddled nations that were protecting Osama Bin Ladin, while gaining money and support from us.

Wasteful dirt can be thrown on both sides. And those in the middle are tired of hearing it..

FROM BOTH SIDES....
