Feb 26: The Economy...Boring! Who Cares...?

The Economy...who cares? Well that is the problem, most American citizens have little interest in the economy. People are concerned about how much money them have in their pocket or the bank. Few realize that this is related to the state of the economy, but it is.

House of Representative Majority Leader Representative John Boehner? Senate Majority Leader Senator Harry Reid?

At the legislative and executive branches, who is deflecting blame and who is accepting it? Is anyone leading...?
