First of all people -- while reading prior comments... GROW-UP! Who gives a rat's patooty about the guy's facial hair?! Eye back on the ball... see, this is the problem here in this country... people prefer to focus on stupid mundane CRAP rather than the pressing issues! I dont care if his hair is purple -- just help the struggling people - esp those of us working our butts off, have no quality of life, have done EVERYTHING right, pay our bills, but because of the economy that the GOP has created & is hell-bent on continuing, AND our greedy employers who keep cutting benefits at a much higher cost to us, not paying increases/bonuses to the average worker (while contg them at the top), and CUTTING their way [in headcount] to growth numbers, rather than investing in actual co growth... many if us are struggling & hurting!
Every little bit counts, and this does put $$ back in our household budgets, rather than to Wall St (in interest), that WE WILL SPEND for food & other essentials... which goes right back into the economy.
Needless to say, I like the plan. Do I think Boehner, Cantor, McConnell or any of the DO NOTHING GOP in Congress will do the correct thing for 'us,' the people, who they are suppose to work for... no, I do not. I have ZERO confidence in them doing anything that dies not benefit THEMSELVES personally, or one of their big corp donors.
Pres. Obama needs to get on the airwaves regularly & start explaining these efforts, how they benefit 98-100% of our population, and who is preventing it & why. And do it regularly... Bill Clinton-style. He knew how to communicate these things often. Don't 'dumb it down' -- just give good, direct details. People respect that.
