Obama's economic plan

On NYtimes

Sorry President-elect Obama, but this just sounds like a stupid idea. We don't need to spend more on government programs- we need to get busy on fixing things that really matter, like the un-constitutional legislation that is going on. Let's repeal the PATRIOT act, then deal with the fact that children can't get online and play games.

I mean, really. Broadband internet access is a privilege that is based on how much money you have. Sorry, but it's the truth. If I couldn't afford internet, then I wouldn't have it. It's as simple as that.

The economy does not need government support. Let them fail. It's called capitalism. They made stupid business decisions; now they're suffering. It's life, and it's the way of the market. But of course, some people might not be able to buy their deluxe new GMC if we were to let the auto companies go under! Our hearts are breaking!

Any way you look at it, spending MORE money is not going to help the economy, or our deficit, which President-elect Obama claims to be so worried about. I'm also concerned about where he's going to get the money to pay for all this. As a person who's going to be paying taxes during Mr. Obama's term (or terms), I'm not to keen on that aspect of things.

“We’ll measure progress by the reforms we make and the results we achieve by the jobs we create, by the energy we save, by whether America is more competitive in the world.” - President-elect Barack Obama
