Obama: Get Tough!

Filed under: economics, elections — Tags: , , , , , , , , — Walter Ebmeyer @ 6:22 am

There are plenty of things Obama can do in the next two years to advance the progressive agenda and get this country going again, and they don’t need congressional help or votes or blessings.  The first thing to do is clean house.  Get rid of people like Tim Geithner who are more concerned with Wall Street than Main Street.  Then use the regulatory powers you already have.  Enforce the new rules for banks.  Make sure the new health law gets going to help sick people. Crack down on oil and coal companies that are wrecking our environment.  Get all the old government agencies ticking again – FEC, FTC, FCC, ICC, EPA .  Be the Commander-in-chief who gets our troops and our treasure out of Iraq and Afghanistan and a thousand bases around the world.  In other words, act more  like the head of the executive branch and less like a prime minister.  Yes you can.

Some smart people have put together a plan that could harness the offshore winds to put electric current through a trenched cable off the shores of NJ, DE, MD, and VA.  Renewable energy could be fed into the on-shore grid with minimal zoning and property-owner hassles.  Google is involved.  Read on.

We know cap-and-trade is not the way to cut air pollution.  At last a bill in the Senate we can all get behind.
