I thought this Op-Ed piece in today's New York Times from Thomas Friedman was very good. And this is from a very liberal newspaper and a Op-Ed columnist that leans to left. The article admits we need major entitlement cuts & radical cost savings approaches to heath care. Two areas Obama hasn't had to guts to tackle & ridiculed Romney/Ryan for their ideas.
One excerpt below:
"Obama has spent a lot of time lately bashing the rich to pay their “fair share.” You know what? There are definitely some Wall Street bankers and C.E.O.’s who deserve that bashing. But there are many successful Americans who got their wealth the old-fashioned way — by risk-taking, going into debt to start a business or pursue a dream. It’s time for the president to do some risk-taking — to stop just hammering the wealthy, which is so easy, and to start selling the country on a strategy to multiply them. We need to tax more millionaires, but we also need more millionaires and middle classes to tax. The president was elected to grow our national pie, not just re-divide it."
