Obama is going to use his first State of the Union address to officially morph into Populist Obama. What does Populist Obama have in store for us? Why middle class goodies of course.
From the New York Times:
WASHINGTON — President Obama will propose in his State of the Union address a package of modest initiatives intended to help middle-class families, including tax credits for child care, caps on some student loan payments and a requirement that companies let workers save automatically for retirement, senior administration officials said Sunday.
I cannot help but wonder, how if any of this really helps those who are unemployed? Many Americans are capable of handling these things on their own if they have a real job. I certainly hope he has something else up his sleeve to address the unemployment problem, because right now all this sounds like is spending more money we don’t really have.
