Really, the spending lately has been huge. Obama is taking a lot of heat for it. Rightly so, he is the POTUS and its his responsibility. Or you could think through the problem and realize that the spending was done to halt a systemic meltdown. It was started by Bush and no matter who won in November, was going to continue. Really you should be angry and what caused the meltdown in the first place (http://elitetrader.com/vb/showthread.php?s=&threadid=175721). No one likes it. No one wanted it to be this way. Its just the way that is is. We did what we had to do. Our job now is to prevent it from happening again. So you can keep bitching about it, or you can be a part of the solution. I come here every few months and the same people are saying the same BS. Learn! Move forward! Articulate what you have problems with a present solutions. Some of you are so blindly partisan its ridiculous.
