The real news, though, is Senator Obama's reponse:
Our economy has now shed 438,000 jobs over the past six months, while workers' wages fail to keep pace with the skyrocketing cost of gas, groceries and healthcare. The American people are paying the price for the failed economic policies of the past eight years, and we can't afford four more years of more of the same.Yes, Mr. Obama, the cure for what ails our economy is to confiscate a huge amount of money from those who actually hire people. Increasing taxes on corporations and small businesses, that will be sure to make them hire more workers.
Sen. Obama has promised change. I didn't realize turning a limping economy into a depression was what he had in mind.
