    Obama to Add Daily Economic Briefing

    President Obama will add a daily morning economic briefing to go along with the president's traditional morning national security briefing, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said moments ago.

    ...

    This morning's briefing was delivered by economic adviser Lawrence Summers, who spoke to Obama, Vice President Biden, chief of staff Rahm Emanuel and other top advisers, Gibbs said.

    This is a great idea. Ever since November 4, 2008, our new president is proving to be way better than our previous one. :thumbs:

    Ten year plan to eliminate all welfare

    The previous administration just spent 8 years favoring the wealthy and the large corporations while ignoring the the middle and working classes. We don't need more of the same.

    Amen to that! Time for our government to quit working for the Haliburtons of the world and start working for the people again.

    My tax liability went down over the last 8 years, and I'm not wealthy - I'm only in the 15% tax bracket. I know people who make less than me, and their tax liability also went down during the Bush admin. So I guess your empty-headed rhetoric is woefully inaccurate.

    "Under the Bush administration, the average income of most Americans has fallen, but the average income of top wage earners (those above the 95 percentile range) has increased from $324,427 in 2001 to $385,805 in 2006. Only one other year has seen a comparable income gap: 1928, the year before the Great Depression."

    So, Ken, has your income fallen under the Bush administration or do you just like reading socialist propaganda?

    The various incomes in my extended family haven't fallen. Several have become entrepreneurs and are doing quite well. I do look for things to "change" for the worst, and not for the better, but after all, "change" was the mantra and our new President will deliver the goods, no doubt, even with a crook as the head of the IRS. I hope if I decide not to pay taxes it will be viewed as an oversight.

    No, but this is not about me or you alone. It is about the whole country. You and I should thank God very, very much(and I am sure you do) for our economic blessings.

    How will we pay the current deficit and you are approving of the guy who spent a million redoing his bathroom then asked for bailout money? I think it was BOA.

    I am not in favor of regulation but the nations fortunes are being wasted by the top 5% which is making the lower 20% depend on Government to get by. You want to end welfare, have the top 5% trickle down the wealth so the lower 20% can earn a living and you can eliminate welfare entirely...

    Mines sure has... I have had to take several pay cuts to take some of the burden off the Church since tithe's and offerings go down proportional with unemployment going up. Unemployment is about 30% in our Church.
