Obama’s economic plan: Did it really work? A Limerick.


“We tried our plan: It’s No child left a dime.
Sold weapons to terrorists; increasing crime.
We squandered some trillions
And rules costing billions,
For I am a part of Chicago’s worst slime.”

Discussing his economic policies at a fundraiser in Oakland, California, last night, President Obama, told supporters that “we tried our plan — and it worked.”
“We tried that and it didn’t work,” Obama said of Mitt Romney’s proposed tax cuts and spending cuts, which he dismissed as a Bush-style “top down” economic policy. “Just like we’ve tried their plan, we tried our plan — and it worked,” he added later in the speech. “That’s the difference. That’s the choice in this election. That’s why I’m running for a second term.”
Obama made these comments in Oakland, where the unemployment rate was 13.7 percent in May 2012. The national unemployment rate is 8.2 percent — up from 8.1 percent in May — for the second straight month.

    only a few characters different. Nonetheless, I am
    a big admirer of your blog site and if you at any time want a guest article please email me personally at: lavonda.
