Telling It Like It Is

Posted by Larry Doyle on March 20th, 2009 5:32 PM |

I am neither a Democrat, nor a Republican. Amidst all the pandering and nonsense, I think it is beneficial to get a clear review and hear someone tell it like it is. Rep. Thaddeus McCotter (R-Michigan) does a very good job.

Shame on everyone involved in Washington for a poorly written Stimulus Bill, and an equally poor legislative process.

          

Obamanomics: Conservative or Revolutionary?

Posted by Larry Doyle on March 16th, 2009 4:17 PM |

A loyal reader shared with me a recent posting from former Clinton Labor Secretary Robert Reich. Earlier today I cross posted a piece from No Quarter in which Reich was less than complimentary of Secretary Geithner. Well, let’s see what Mr. Reich has to say about President Obama’s economic program:¬†Is Obamanomics Conservative or Revolutionary?

Prior to delving into my thoughts and commentary on Reich (or anybody), I always find it useful to consider the perspective of the writer. In regard to Mr. Reich, let us not forget that Robert Reich Excludes White Male Construction Workers from Obama Stimulus Plan. Utilizing that perspective, Mr. Reich would be considered to be more than slightly left of center. Additionally, in considering the Obama economic plans, I think it is critically important to incorporate the economic plans and agenda of the Democrats in Congress. These Congressional leaders have a major influence in this process. These Democrats, including David Obey (D-WI), Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Harry Reid (D-NV), Barney Frank (D-MA), Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Chris Dodd (D-CT), and Steny Hoyer (D-MD) amongst others are major players in the stimulus, budget, and Omnibus bill that have come down from Congress. It is not totally clear where the lines are drawn between the White House and Congress on all the economic issues. That said, let’s see what Mr. Reich has to say and then critique his assessments of Obamanomics. (more…)
