Obama/Merkel Press Conference yesterday

First let us all appreciate that we do have 2 very intelligent people on this critical issue of Ukraine.

President Obama did a great job in representing US in a well thought out careful manner. I have great respect for Merkel for her commitment to search for a peaceful solution.

I am very sure they know the facts and as she say that they are politicians.

I have listen on this live and again on this you tube posting of the speech.

Yes they are getting more income


But they do want to pay their share

The general public get poorer.

Hence the increase in household debt.
The more services you cut that actually help the people the more they hurt.
Certain services cannot be for profit, however if such services are privatized then profit motivation will generally force up prices.
eg utilities cost, medicine and medical services, education etc. Everyone need them except that the propotion of such shoul and must not be the entire household income ( Refer Elizabeth Warren Video and changes and trend in how American spend their household income - just too lazt to look for it )

Of course with an increasing share of the income they end up paying more. Bush tax cut cannot be extended. In fact the taxes must be raised to maintain the services. Yes it is bailing out the people. If bailing out the financial sector is so easy why should bailing out the people be any different.
