What we need is a "21st Century Full Employment Act for Peace and Prosperity" which would make it a mandatory requirement that the president and Congress attain and maintain full employment.

Rising prices of food and gas spell defeat at the polls for Obama and the Democrats

Two things that resonate with, and impact, almost every American--- except for the super-rich who profit from skyrocketing prices--- are the skyrocketing prices, with no end in sight, of food at the grocery store and gas at the pump. 

Democrats have failed to halt the rising prices and they will pay dearly for this inaction at the polls. 

It won't be long before the Tea Party and Republican demagogues use these issues and make use of popular prejudices and use false claims and promises in order to gain power if government action isn't taken to roll-back and freeze the prices of food and gas.

These rising prices turn everyday living into a crisis for most working class families.
