  • It won't. The only way government can "help" us out of our economic crisis, is by changing things like: business laws/tax structure that encourage and rewards offshoring, outsourcing and insourcing.... change wage and hour law and requirements.... create a entire shift in how debt is acquired and dealt with... change our economy from being dependent on retail sales/consumption and many other things.. None of these things are beneficial to the people in power: big business and special interest.

    Very few, if any, people in power really care about the little guy. The average, everyday, hourly wage earner in this country. That person, doesn't matter in the big picture. What matters is corporations/big business, and their interest. Their interest is their bottom line, not what goes into the little guys pockets.

    As long as American's are making low wages. They can't spend money. Then the economy will not fully recover.

  • It wont. Obama is trying to be a world leader IMO. He is just a power hungry idiot.

  • It won't. We already have too many government dependents, the last thing we need is more public sector jobs that less taxpayers can afford to fund.

  • A larger Federal Government means our nation needs MORE revenue to fund the additional government programs. We can't even fund the programs we currently HAVE... How the hell can grow the size of the Federal government without private sector revenue?! That is the Fundamental Flaw with the Obama Administration, IMO

  • I guess "UpSheRises" didn't take Civics class in school! Question too complicated for ya?...::sheesh::

    It won't and our government should downsized by every measure of the word! Obama healthcare won't work and spending more will put our deficit in a hole that will never see light! Get ready, the ugly will get worse!
