Congress, they really have to do something about the crummy employment situation -- and do it quickly.
Obama said it was time that Congress stop blaming others.
Obama, whose Democratic spending priorities have pushed the national debt beyond $14,000,000,000,000, said it was important to curb spending and keep to the deficit reduction plan agreed to earlier this summer while also investing in, you know, many important things.
Obama wants $35 billion to go toward salaries for teachers, firefighters and police.
Obama wants $140 billion largely to update roads and bridges. Obama wants another $245 billion in business and individual tax relief. Obama also wants to extend unemployment benefits.
Obama wants it all right now. Seriously. Now that his Martha's Vineyard vacation is over, this situation is urgent.
Obama didn't have room in his 4,021 word speech to mention how he intended to pay for all this new sounds-an-awful-like-increased-new-stimulus-spending-but-we're-not-usi ng-that-word-anymore.
Notice the billions of new dollars from your pocket go to UNION WORKERS! How do you say, "GET OUT THE VOTE?"
There were no new ideas. There were no new plans or any realistic ideas discussed. Obama just spewed more of the same rhetoric, expecting his serfdom to bow at his command. I WATCHED ONE HELL OF A FOOTBALL GAME LAST NIGHT!
