Obama cant accomplish everything he proposed. The GOP wont allow it. Some DEMs wont allow it. Buy he can do 2 things...by himself. First of all....You've got to allow the Bush tax breaks to lapse. None of it trickled down, That was broken down theory. As a country, we are hugely in debt and we cant afford tax breaks for companies , some of which are profiting at record rates... He dosen't have to act. The cuts simply expire. Secondly, he has to end the war as quickily as possible. There was no purpose for the Iraq occupation and there still isnt. It is making the USA a bad word world wide and bankrupting our economy. Bush would never admit a blunder. We have to save money and lives. Obama dosent need anyone's approval. He can simply order the troops to come home and the Iraq governemnt will take care if itself. What will happen when we leave? That's their problem. I dont care. Those two acts will stabilize our economy and lift national morale. A raise in the minimum wage wouldnt hurt either. Get that done and we'll be better off in 4 years than we are now.
