Today’s news:

Economy must improve at quicker pace

Even though the president and Congress were finally able to come to an agreement to prevent the country from defaulting, our economic situation is no better than before.

With unemployment still at a high rate and prices continuing to rise on everything from consumer goods to mortgages and interest rates, how can we have any hope of optimism? All we have been hearing from President Barack Obama is that things are going to improve. The big question the American people are asking is when?

This recession is the worst to affect our economy since the Great Depression of 1929. This country cannot have a repeat of that ever again, so the windbag politicians in Washington had better get off their padded backsides and start trying to work out some type of plan that will help to reverse this economic crisis that we are in.

Obama, the ringmaster, and the clowns in the circus that is our Congress need to also get their act together and stop acting as if all of this were some type of comedy. They do not seem to grasp the reality that the American people are tired of hearing that everything will be all right.

Again, the question is when?
