All of the talk about the economy is the most boring con job in the current campaign season. I work hard to keep the details out of my head. Thank God I never gave Herman Cainís economic plan an iota of space in my thinking. Does anyone who did dive into the details remember anything Cain proposed? Ditto the rest of them who came and went. The headlines on thousands of articles told me everything I needed to know.
Bottom line: When it comes to the economy do not be fooled into believing there is a difference between Republican economic plans and Democrat economic plans. For all of the economic plans put out by politicians in both parties the federal governmentís economic policy can be summed up in five words: Wall Street must not crash. Every economic decision, every scheme to lower retail prices, every tax increase, every bailout, every stimulus package, every increase in the debt ceiling, ensures obedience to those five words.
