GOP has the wrong agenda for America

Michelle Bachmann is Sarasota: 

I don't know how much God has to do to get the attention of the politicians. We've had an earthquake; we've had a hurricane. He said, 'Are you going to start listening to me here?' Listen to the American people because the American people are roaring right now. They know government is on a morbid obesity diet and we've got to rein in the spending.

Was the ongoing economic crises caused by the government or government spending. No, it was caused by greedy mortgage lenders and banks.

Most of the government overspending occurred during the Bush administration and much of it resulted form  the middle eastern wars. Half of the debt that has been accrued during the Obama administration was rolled over from the Bush administration.

Will the Republican agenda of tax cuts for the affluent, deregulation and reduced government spending fix the economy? That is very unlikely. The GOP could easily push the country into another depression like it did in the 1930s.

Invoking God won't help either. Rick Perry tried that in Texas during a drought that is still on going.
