It's Still the Economy, Stupid

Hosted by

The day after his White House job summit, President Obama got unexpected good news today, a modest decline in the rate of unemployment. But it's still 10% and that means trouble for millions of Americans and for Democrats running for office this year. Can the government afford another stimulus package? Should it focus on those sectors of the economy that promise new jobs, or does future prosperity depend on another investment bubble and should the government just get out of the way?
