    You can read the plan here, or get a quick overview here.

    Obama's plan looks solid, and addresses our need for job creation, help for the middle class and small businesses, and freeing up some credit. Some highlights:

    --Temporary tax credit for businesses adding jobs here in the U.S.
    --Funding to rebuild infrastructure, and keep current projects in motion
    --Allowing people to withdraw from 401K plans without penalty, retroactively for 2008 and all of 2009
    --Allowing mortgages to be restructured
    --Moratorium on home foreclosures for 90 days

    McCain is going to buy all the bad mortgages with our money.

    I'm looking forward to hear Obama discuss his plan Wednesday night at the debate...it will be interesting to see if McCain comes up with anything new by then.

    Anyone espousing an economic plan right now is crazy. The economic picture is changing by the minute.

    Gee, why should we even focus on the economy then with the candidates? Ideas are better then nothing. Besides, Obama gives you a idea and layout of what he has in mind.

    The economic picture may change but it doesn't mean he can't adjust his plan to the "ever changing" picture.

    We need a leader to guide us through this crisis. Leaders make plans and implement them. Losers bumble about aimlessly, constantly changing their minds and ultimately accomplishing nothing.
