Is Obama repeating Carter's policies?

http://money.cnn.com/2010/02/15/news/economy/obama_carter.fortune/index.htm?section=money_latest

The ghost of Jimmy Carter’s one-term presidency is hovering over President Obama as the Democrats try to pass a jobs bill in time for this year’s elections. So why is the centerpiece of the measure — a tax break for companies that make new hires — a play straight from Carter’s economic policy circa 1977? …
Critics of Carter’s plan — and Congress’ now — say that the problem with any jobs credit is the potential for waste. It’s estimated that of the companies that claimed the tax credit under Carter’s plan, two-thirds would have hired those employees regardless of the tax break.

  • I think it's a combination of Carter's policies and George W's policies (of course those are just continued and expanded).

  • They are worse, at least Jimmy will no longer be known as the worst president.
