Americans are being poorly served, for whatever reason, at the moment, by traditional mainstream media and, obviously, the GOP either intentionally or inadvertantly distorting the details of Administration initiatives.

What is a business person to do with these short term point fixes, does this administration not understand business plan 3, 5, 10 years out. If you change these things every 6 months / 1 year no business person will bet the farm on some temp idea. What is the point?

I am a believer of control and a believer of Environmental Protection as well a Believer of our System, why your government in order to make the USA industry competitive inside our country (just to start) impose fees and taxes to any product that come to the USA so in that way our industry can be more efficient producing in the same economy conditions, because we can not discuss that our citizens are well protect by our constitution.
Also please in relation to the unemployment situation all the time your statics are in relation to the people that receive or apply for unemployment benefits, but never mention the other side of the story, that each day are more people that is deny the insurance benefits, an is not only the 9.5% the labor Dpt. says, this percent goes to up 17% without consider independents, and new coming workers by age, education or immigration….why lie to the country, and to the system, let’s see my case I am unemployed for the last 20 months and since the ned of July 2011 the Labor Dpt. (DETR) in Nevada told me that I am not qualify for insurance benefits because only covers (Include state and federal insurance) 20 months, I am close to 50 years old and I am apllying to any job I can but still not finding nothing, what help citizens like me can get if the age is our worst enemy, and no insurance benefits are considered because only covers 20 months, so please don’t forget this sector of the citzens when your governmentprepare the statics of unemployment.
Health for our families is another issue that the only way to create cheaper prizes for the anual premiuns is to let create new insurance companies in our country that let management this sector of the economy, open the market to be more competitive and efficient in the service to the regular citizen, we need to open our classical point of view of what health service is and create new responses to the real existing situation in our country, you need to end the monopolies in health.
