Even as President Obama rolled out his new plan for the US Military yesterday, the jobs report showed we have turned the corner into the positive. 200K new "Non-Farm" jobs proves that the policy's have grown from the Seeds that were planted during the Great Down Town Turn of 2007/2008. It stop the bleeding Obama had to reach deep and spend big, VERY Big. Not the move to take lightly when you're leading a country that was already on a pace to drown in Debt. The spending the Gov't put forth did stop the rocket from crashing but a high cost...the only other choice was to watch it crash & destroy anything in its way. Money well spent if you ask me. But there is always a payback/Bill due at the end. And after years of Talking about doing something about it, this President and others are finally ready to make the hard choices needed to "Start" paying down our bill. Just paying the minimum payment will not get the bill down. We need to cut spending where it hurts, yes that means the Military and yes that means Medicare/Social Security, as well as other social programs. To quote Bill Clinton- "I feel your Pain". We all need to feel the pain.
The Defense Cuts & Cuts in Social Programs, along with the closing of Tax Loop Holes should begin our long road back. Being #1 is a feeling and is not always easy.
