Former-President Bill Clinton, during his initial race to the Presidency, had a saying, "It's the economy, stupid." The focus on the failings of the Bush economy lead to Clinton's election and swept the supply-side Republicans from office for eight years. Eight years of Democratic-lead prosperity, balanced budgets, and a peace-time economic bonanza for small business and working class families.
Now, America is faced with another economic debacle thanks to another member of the Bush family and to supply-side Republican economic policies that only benefit the rich and big business. Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL), presumptive Democratic nominee for the Presidency in Election 2008, has a detailed plan to strengthen the U.S. economy and to deliver us from eight years of mismanagement.
Obama's plan is especially needed in the Coachella Valley with California one of the states hardest hit by the housing crisis, predatory lending, and rising commodity prices, with Riverside County one of the hardest hit counties, and with the Inland Empire, the San Gorgonio Pass, and the Coachella Valley as some of the hardest hit local regions.
