David Horsey and the Obama Inheritance…

Good morning, Netizens...

David Horsey asks the question, what did Obama inherit, and then he answers it with a static conclusion.

Did Obama or did he not avoid another Great Depression? For good or ill did he manage to pass Health Care Reform through an unwilling Congress? Didn't he pass Wall Street Reform? Did he pass student loans? Some might say that Obama has done a lot of good; others may deny it.

At some point, the gaffes will stop being Bush leftovers and they will become Obama problems. One has only to ask when will that be?

If the Bush tax cuts are allowed to expire in full, we will be seeing one of the largest tax increases in years, no? Allowing a huge tax increase in one of the worst economies in American history could be financial suicide, couldn't it?

Some say our downward economic slide is just on the edge of disaster; our economic fall could be just beginning. Who gets the blame then, Obama or Bush?
