I came across the article Obama Steps up Confrontation. I found Obama's recent moves a little too aggressive. Senator Lama Alexander said the moves would only hurt him in the end, and I aggree. Antonia Ferrier points out that the Senate doesn't exactly work like most game theorist believe. As far as the new overhaul of student-lending loans that the Democrats attached to the Bill, I think it will only do worse to the economy as a whole. To my understanding, it is predicted to result in thousands of job loses. That doesn't make me very enthusiastic about recovery.
