“The private sector is doing fine,” the president said during a White House press conference. “Where we’re seeing weaknesses in our economy have to do with state and local government. … If Republicans want to be helpful, if they really want to move forward and put people back to work, what they should be thinking about is how do we help state and local governments. -Barack Obama”

Wow! Talk about doubling down. It’s one thing to think the economy is doing well with 23,000,000 out of work. But to think the answer is to grow state and local governments? Government doesn’t produce anything!
Amazing. There is nothing to work with here.
