Article - Obama says only government can save U.S. economy
Quote:
WASHINGTON, Feb 9 (Reuters) - President Barack Obama on Monday made a new plea for Congress to pass his economic stimulus plan, saying the federal government was "the only entity left with the resources to jolt the U.S. economy back to life."

"It is only government that can break the vicious cycle where lost jobs lead to people spending less money which leads to even more layoffs. And breaking that cycle is exactly what the plan that's moving through Congress is designed to do," Obama said in his first news conference since taking office on Jan. 20.

Obama spoke hours after the Senate cleared a procedural hurdle on the Democratic-backed stimulus package, setting up a vote on Tuesday on the $838 billion package of tax cuts and emergency government spending which was likely to pass.
Last night I was going to jump online to see if anyone commented on the statement. I'm a little surprised. Welcome to socialism!
