Quot but Quot if we want an America that can compete for the jobs of a tomorrow Quot we simply cannot allow our nation to be dragged Down by our debt. We must Correct our fiscal the answers to both May seem contradictory. The Long accepted response to a recession advocated by Early 20th Century British economist John Keynes is for government to prime the Economy with Short term spending that adds to the deficit. Ideally an economic recovery then generates Revenue that can offset those initial expenses. So even As the administration welcomed the deficit commission s work the White House made a Case that if taxes were going to remain Low for even the highest Eam ing taxpayers then spending to help Middle income taxpayers and unemployed workers needed to be extended As and congressional leaders appointed a negotiating team to work out a Compromise on the tax cuts.

The restlessness in the electorate grew not Only from the weak economic recovery but also from a perception that the government was spending too much and not showing results. Both political parties immediately seized on the unemployment rate. Republicans said it illustrated the failure of Obama s policies while democrats said it demanded greater spending to protect workers and prime the Economy. Vice president Joe Biden declared the unemployment number Quot disappointing Quot and said it underscored the need for Congress to approve an Extension of unemployment insurance to jobless workers. The unemployment setback Canie As the White House was trying to draw Public attention to signs of economic improvement. Obama last month highlighted the resurgence of the Auto Industry with a trip to a Kokomo ind., Chrysler Plant. Administration officials also Point to the Ever decreasing taxpayer Cost of the $700 billion financial Rescue that became a Public Symbol of government intervention and bailouts.
