"Something has to give politically if the economy is to change course. More to the point, what has to give is favoritism for Wall Street at the expense of the economy at large. What has made the U.S. economy uncompetitive is primarily the degree to which debt service has been built into the cost of living and doing business. Post-classical 'junk economics' treats interest and fees as payment for the 'service' for providing credit. But interest (like economic rent and monopoly price extraction) is a transfer payment to bankers with the privilege of credit creation. The beneficiaries of providing tax favoritism for debt are the super-rich at the top of the economic pyramid – the 2% whom Mr. Obama's tax giveaway will benefit by over $700 billion."
To make a long story short, Obama is helping to continue the robbery of Peter (you) to pay Paul (the banksters) all via obvious means that most people are just too busy trying to have any sort of life to absorb and comprehend. The banksters love it that the common people are absorbed by inane TV shows and sporting events and such and are not paying attention concerning why buying a new TV is harder and paying for those sports tickets is a luxury while the banksters sit in the skyboxes marveling at how clever those banksters are.
