Obama critics offer inaction

The Spokesman-Review

Having listened to President Obama’s 100-days news conference, I am bemused by some of the responses. Many give him failing grades, but in no case do they offer any alternatives. It would seem that doing nothing is their solution to our present difficulties.

Give tax relief to those people who have more money than they can spend; collect taxes from the rest of us; let the banks fail; million-dollar bonuses for those people who helped us get into this mess are a good thing; let the auto companies crash into extinction; let unemployment rise up to 50 percent and let homelessness rise to match. Higher education will be unaffordable; K-12 classes will be lecture-hall size. Hospital ERs will be swamped by uninsured people seeking medical help. We won’t even mention our overseas entanglements.

President Obama is trying to prevent these events from coming to pass. How are the complainers helping him?

Ann Echegoyen
