I can't help but feel like Obama's not just from Chicago, but the Queen of sorts, and by that, I mean Big Mama -- holding ward over America's nationwide Wall Street debtors prison. You want unemployment benefits in the nation's worst depression since the "Great" one? $700 billion for millionaires and billionaires.
Big Mama is certainly willing to "spice things up" for the people who live in her cell blocks, but at a cost that is so steep as to not be worth it -- at least if you weren't trapped in her ward.A deal that doesn't include any help the '99ers,' states that are in fiscal crisis or one that raises of the nation's debt sealing (so Republicans can't hold America hostage again in another few months, or force us to make grotesque cuts) is no deal at all. That Big Mama territory -- or maybe we should say Big Obama territory.
