Obama Rep Equates Economy With Cancer

Yes, I know. I said that already 2-years ago in the article The Global Bush Effect: "It's a financial cancer, that due to international cross collateralization and open-end monetary instruments, is metastasizing, when the problem should have been detected early, and there were symptoms, isolated, contained, then the appropriate treatment applied."

 It's amazing that 2-whole-fiancially-painful-years later and the government still has not improved and is in the same financial sinkhole, only deeper. It's astonishing that it's taken all that time for the government to realize this fact. However, the question is, what are you going to do about it, as talk is cheap. 

Side Bar: Don't talk about cancer around Obama. He will break out a shovel and dig up his best manure in your direction. You would think with someone that smokes the way he has and does, he'd have a vested interest in curing the disease

Bowles said that unlike the current economic crisis, which was largely unforeseen before it hit in fall 2008, the coming fiscal calamity is staring the country in the face. "This one is as clear as a bell," he said. "This debt is like a cancer."...
