The following is copied from an article in today's Washington Post:
"...Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke forecast a "moderate economic recovery" in congressional testimony Wednesday but added that he expects that "a significant amount of time will be required" to restore the millions of U.S. jobs lost over the past two years. Economists at the International Monetary Fund agree: Their just-released forecast for the world economy projects high joblessness in the United States and the rest of the industrialized world for another two years..."
So what does she know; what do these "advocacy groups" think can be done?
Throw money at a problem which still requires a certain amount of time to fix itself?
Where does the money come from? The state is virtually broke. If you think not, look at the articles concerning the delay in tax refund checks being issued due to "cash flow" issues. That means they are concerned checks would bounce. They even admit that.
I guess on a positive note, she did stay local and did not take a flight for this trip.
