It would really be a great time for Obama to call a few more plays for the ground game - particularly in Ohio.
Use the campaign organization to turn up the people to let Representatives (i.e. Boehner) hear that they need to FOLLOW THE PEOPLE and pass the President's financial plan.
Obama and crew HAVE TO STOP with the "grand bargain" bullshit. The country needs to do BIG things - rebuild infrastructure, increase employment, close the gap in income levels.
That means - very simply:
Raise taxes on top brackets to Reagan levels - stop talking about "Bush cuts", start talking about Reagan ratesLet's DO THIS THING!!
Create some large scale public works programs - rebuild highways/bridges, sewage treatment, water systems, libraries, schools, etc. - put millions to work earning money to buy things with
Raise taxes on capital gains and carried interest - make the idle rich pay the same as productive work
Remove the cap on income subject to FICA tax - secure Social Security
Cut the War Department budget by 30% - 'nuff said
