Why should Warren Buffet's Secretary pay more tax than the multi-billionaire? That's is the sort of thing President Obama is addressing, together with plans to save 280,000 teachers jobs by extending government funding.
Seems like right measures, and the sooner Mr Obama gets his policies agreed by both sides of the House, the better I believe it will be for the nation. A slow ascent on the graph of the economy, a modest pace of growth, seems I believe good enough in these very challenging times.
I personally believe the U.S. should create about 250,000 jobs for young Entrepreneurs, who with some seed capital and funding for a period of 6months or a year could do wonders. Not people who'll take the funding and take it easy, but motivated, success- and survival-hungry individuals who'll burn the midnight candle to get things along. Just an idea, and wish you great success.
