They seem to think their stonewalling and threatening to filibuster is good politics, but Obama seems to think it is voodoo economics.
President Barack Obama warned on Thursday that failure to act on an economic recovery package could plunge the nation into a long-lasting recession that might prove irreversible, a fresh call to a recalcitrant Congress to move quickly.(The Star, emphasis added). The voters clearly stated which ideas they want and trust and which they do not.
In an op-ed in The Washington Post, the president argued that each day without his stimulus package, now exceeding $900 billion in the Senate, Americans lose more jobs, savings and homes. He painted a bleak picture if lawmakers do nothing.
Senate and House republicans seem to have not received that memo yet.
President Obama also issued and executive directive which will put some wind into the sails of the ship of state.
He directed them to use all dispatch to save energy and promulgate regulations toward that end.
