If there is ever any more question that there is no difference between the two parties, read the text from his speech, and compare it to McCain's recent economic speech.
A few tidbits:
The policies of the Bush Administration threw the economy further out of balance. Tax cuts without end for the wealthiest Americans. A trillion dollar war in Iraq that didn't need to be fought, paid for with deficit spending and borrowing from foreign creditors like China. A complete disdain for pay-as-you-go budgeting -- coupled with a generally scornful attitude towards oversight and enforcement -- allowed far too many to put short-term gain ahead of long term consequences. The American economy was bound to suffer a painful correction, and policymakers found themselves with fewer resources to deal with the consequences.
After months of inaction, the President spoke here in New York and warned against doing too much. His main proposal -- extending tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans -- is completely divorced from the reality that people are facing around the country. John McCain recently announced his own plan, and it amounts to little more than watching this crisis happen. While this is consistent with Senator McCain's determination to run for George Bush's third term, it won't help families who are suffering, and it won't help lift our economy out of recession.
And the money shot:
Our free market was never meant to be a free license to take whatever you can get, however you can get it.
I want this guy to be my President.
