Anybody with a half of a brain (aka “Half wit”) knows that “no president is in total or direct control of the economy. “In response “the job of the government (aka President and his policy makers) is to make polices!
The stimulus money isn’t free money. Nor did it go to stimulate jobs rather it went to unions as pay back (political speaking). When the government barrows money from (China) and alike it puts a drag on the economy due to interest payments. Borrowed money also devalues our money, as well the credit ratings because of our over spending habit.
All of these kinds of choices by government cause’s a rise of prices, like in imports, the price of oil and in turn everything else. Yes oil, the thing that makes it possible to ships things in or out of the country, and with the cost of shipping goes to the consumer, as well higher prices do to inflation.
In short “people looking toward the government for more handouts should be less inclined to sucking on the nipples of government and start to take some responsibility for ones own self.” Realizing that government with the help of social hand outs is only trying to buy your vote!
All the best
