“I don't think that the economy will be where it used to be by the end of the year. But if the government can ignore the differences between the parties and work together to fix the problem, then I think that there could be some big improvements this year.”

“I wish that I could say yes, but with a national unemployment rate of over 9 percent and the prices of groceries and gas climbing everyday, I just don't see it happening this year.”

“I can only hope that each year will be better than the previous one. Hopefully everyone will see positive changes.”

Ah, youth...government cannot not fix economic conditions. All they can do is grease the skids of potential growth by creating tax incentives, decreasing potential costs in the form of tariffs, setting monetary policy (which they have completely exhausted at this point, so that's off the table), or via legislation that increases competition (and therefore reduces end-customer costs).

The socialist education system of America has done a great job, though, in indoctrination. We certainly cannot survive without Big Daddy government coddling all of us under its arm.
