Who is responsible for current economic conditions of the United States. Congress or the president?


I am interested in your opinions, rants, and factual comments. Have at it people... I value all opinions even if I do not agree with them.

    hmmm... I get the "it's the voters fault... and agree somewhat... but where are the choices, where is the leadership in elections... we are about to have another election and the choices are bad and bad...

    Interesting.... how do you feel about a flat tax... instead of a tax that is based on income... say everyone pay 10%???? or a national sales tax???

    nice rant... you left out worthless degrees from for-profit universities that cost 30K... but are not respected within the business world...

    d. william: what do you think the effect/affect would be if the goal of one party or another was NOT to meet in the middle, NOT to pass laws, but to create resentment, hatrid, and anarchy?

    All very true! and yet we the people rally around the next election... why I wonder... especially if the choices are not solutions but further causes....

    how about a lot of both? I don't know how people exect to create jobs when the infrastructure that supports jobs is missing... to create jobs would we not first have to build industry?

    I think blame lies everywhere party to party. I think the entire sentate should be removed from office and term limits placed on both house and senate. I think jail time should be mandatory for corrupt behavior.

    It is not a bad hub... in fact it makes some good points... I would only ad that predicability creates complacient behavior where uncertainly develops leadership... a survival of the fitest approach.

    That just about hits the mark, Xenonlit. The Tea Party is incompetent and ruled only by their quest for ideological purity and desire to be rid of Obama. They have greatly harmed our country.

    hmm... Is not the word "best" the very argument that both political camps use because they both have very different ideas of what "best" means... how do they decide what is best for the people.... do We The People even know what is best for us?

    Wall Street, the banks, mortgage companies certainly caused the recession. That it continues with such tragic consequences and mounting debts is a national tragedy which many will say shows a failure of leadership at the national level.
