The means of paying for President Obama's vision for economic recovery, better educational opportunities, improved health care and more ecologically friendly energy alternatives was the topic of discussion on News Talk Online on Paltalk.com today.
Among the callers addressing the issue:
Cassandra in the United Kingdom, who said, Obama's speech outlining his economic agenda was one that "appeals to the emotions." But that doesn't explain where the money is coming from. "Emotions alone," she said, "don't hack it."
Jann in California fears all that Obama wants to do will mean thinner paychecks for all. "They're going to do the same they just did here in California," she predicted. "They are going to raise taxes."
And Sammy in Illinois expressed concern that Obama's vision will change what the United States stands for. "We've never lived in the United States," he opined, "with a more socialist agenda."
