The economy in trouble:
What to do?

Feb 18, 2008

A poll conducted in early February asked how to stimulate the economy. “Get out of Iraq,” said almost half the respondents. Another 43% of those polled said the government needed to increase the funds spent on health care, education and housing. The least popular response for how to improve the economy was to give this fake rebate the politicians have been bragging about.

Of course, as we long ago learned, Congress and the president have other things on their minds than the wishes of the population.
