Explaining Senator McCaskill is easy, now, to do(?). Obama-Biden had to do stimulation economics, inflating the economy. The Greatest Inflation was in health care. Health Care costs had become uncontrollable. Forward thinking, economics-based, Senators took what administration advisory team there was: And worked around the absence of the "Shovel Ready Jobs." Upper Echelons at the White House, that anyone can think of, wanted to do, "The Reagan Trajectory." Money would be sent to the white collar bureaucrats and teachers: Already prosperous. At least one U. S. Vice President had not been entirely on board. Stupid economists have no doctorates. Rep. Ryan is "educated" in economics, but has no doctorate. Stupid former FRB Chief, Alan Greenspan, famously had a degree in economics, but had no doctorate. These are not a stimulation kind of providing folk. So finally, despite them, Housing Prices are Rising, likely thanks to Ben Bernanke, Ph.d., and bloating of QE2. US home prices post first 12-month gain since '10 Again, at $14.0 tril. of federal deficit: At last there is some price inflation--thanks to Obama-Biden, according to GOP-Ryan-Aiken-Romney-Greenspan-Aiken-Ronald Reagan(?)! Reagan was budget deficit creator. Eventually even Bush II knew about Deficit Creators. US home prices post first 12-month gain since '10 Milton Friedman, anyone would say, was likely stupid: Having the doctorate. Instead of inflation at a Mega-Kazillion annual rate--Only thanks to Obama-Biden are housing prices now inflating. Milton Friedman, like Alan Greenspan, was a lethally stupid kind of anti-government/anti-deficits kind of guy. Among liberal Democrats, especially: It is not thanks to Rep. Aiken, but instead to Obama-Biden-Bernanke that housing prices are rising. Everything that Ryan-Greenspan-Friedman opposed, actually has worked. Housing Price increase will help to create the "shovel-ready" jobs that go forward with an economy under way. Missouri likely will do well and prosper, thanks directly to Senator McCaskill. "High-Tech" Governor Jindale will likely be out soon, piling up rocks on Louisiana beaches. Everyone else will be safe behind the nationally funded, anti-disaster projects. Those likely even have their assistance certain, from BP: Encouraged by Obama-Biden. USA probably got to see, instead, one of the last Jindals on the planet unable to find a call center to work from. "Crow, James Crow: Shaken, Not Stirred!" (South El Monte maybe even host to life: On planet far, far, away from La Canada-Flintridge, JPL! Prosperous-funded: Many times not too smart!) _____________________________ Opposed by Romney-Ryan-Aiken-Greenspan-Friedman-Jindal, this below: (And not forgetting McConnell, Boehner, Cantor, Bachmann, McCain, Palin, Gingrich, Paul, Paul, et., al., (including the obvious reference to Gov. Chris Christie)!) "After Katrina, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers built a $14.5 billion defense flood system of walls, floodgates, levees and pumps designed to protect the city against a massive tidal surge like the one that swamped New Orleans in Katrina's wake seven years ago." "Lt. Gen. Russel Honore, who led post-Katrina recovery efforts, said the levees and the level of local government preparedness are 'a different story' from 2007." ""But on any given day Mother Nature can beat us,' he told CNN, warning the storm could be potent. Isaac has 'the capacity to turn the lights out in New Orleans,' he said."
