I've worked at a number of companies that hired a bunch of engineers and physicists and technicians and... You pretty much have to have a PHD, BS, or 2 year degree to get hired. And people I've talked to recently say they're still looking for well trained people. We need more, educated people.
In 1970s, I had to borrow $3,000 to get BS which created all the high tech of the 1990s. Today it's more like $50,000. We should go back to what worked after WWII up to the 1970s, which produced all the economic progress.
I guess we'll have to agree to disagree.
"Too bad Obama doesn't take your approach"
Obamacare is a partial fix to the Medicare part D deficit
We're not totally out of Iraq, but spending is much less and declining with time.
There's at least a plan to get out of Afganistan.
I wish we'de get out quicker but I'm not privy to inside information that might change my mind.
Obama has tried to get rid of the unpaid for tax cuts.
Obama has tried to push through some programs to help the economy.
It's unreasonable to expect Obama to fix everything in 4 years.
When the Republicans #1 priority is to get Obama un-elected and will do anything to make this so, it's hard to blame Obama for not getting bipartisan solutions.
It's funny, Romney said that if he gets elected, unlike Obama, he'll sit down with Republican and Democratic leaders and come up with bi-partisan solutions. That's funny, I remember Obama with Republican leaders. They came up with some solutions. When Boehner showed the agreement to "tea-party" people they refused to go along and the deal collapsed.
Republcians say the deal was killed because Democrats insisted on more taxes, but again, it's not that Obama didn't sit down with leaders and come up with bipartisan compromise.
