Obama’s 21st Century New Deal

When Republicans allow our financial markets to operate in a state of nature, they should not be surprised by natural disasters. Republicans are responsible for some of the worst ideas and governing choices the past eight years. The current finance crisis is an example: a minimally regulated market powered by an insatiable appetite for wealth will always end in debacle. Deregulation, trickle-down, and privatizing Social Security are just a small sample of Republican policies and ideas that give the Middle Class the raw deal.

In a time of economic crisis and uncertainty, Obama is offering a 21st Century New Deal that includes a comprehensive energy, economic, and health care plan. Yesterday, Obama put forward a Middle Class Rescue Plan. McCain remains uncertain whether he has a plan, though according to reports, it appears McCain may have had a plan before he didn’t.
