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.

The fiscal cliff.

We hear a lot of talk about this "fiscal cliff" but when was the last time you heard Obama or any Democrats talk about the "fiscal cliff" working class families have been shoved off of unto the rocks below for the last four years by Obama as he forces austerity measures down our throats to pay for his dirty Wall Street wars?

    Aren't people losing their homes, being unemployed, being forced into poverty, being forced to pay rapidly escalating health insurance and health care costs and rising child care costs along with rapidly rising college tuitions not to mention soaring costs of food, gas, home heating fuels and electricity being shoved off the "fiscal cliff?
