French government dissolves over economic policy
 
obama's wet dream......:yes

Quote:

President Francois Hollande is weighing his options after dissolving the government on Monday over open feuding in the Cabinet about how much cutting — or spending — will revive the country's stagnant economy.

Hollande is to announce a new government on Tuesday. The debate among French Socialists mirrors one taking place across Europe on whether to pursue a German-led model of fiscal austerity or use more government spending to spur growth.

Prime Minister Manuel Valls offered up his Socialist government's resignation after accusing France's outspoken economy minister of crossing a line with his blunt criticism of the government's policies. Hollande accepted the resignation and ordered Valls to form a new government by Tuesday.

Hollande has promised cuts to taxes and spending as well as reforms to make it easier for businesses to open and operate. The measures are meant to reduce the tax burden for companies and also contain the government's deficit, which is above the European Union's limit of 3 percent of GDP.

France has had effectively no economic growth this year, unemployment is hovering around 10 percent and Hollande's approval ratings are sunk in the teens. The country is under pressure from the 28-nation EU to get its finances in order, but Economy Minister Arnaud Montebourg has criticized austerity as the wrong medicine to foster growth and argues the government should spend more freely to create jobs.

He lashed out at the government's policies in a final adieu as minister on Monday.

"The entire world is urging us —even begging us — to end these absurd austerity policies that are plunging the eurozone into an economic slowdown," he said in a statement to the press.

I think to understand you have to start with letting go of reality.
Warp your perspective so you think Obama has turned America into:

And THEN such comments may appear to have some sense....
:sar3


I know some people get tired of hearing they hate Obama, but maybe if they wouldn't prove it so often people wouldn't point it out.
Here we have an article which has nothing to do with Obama.
But of course, in some people's minds EVERYTHING has to do with Obama, so instead of a comment on the actual thread it devolves into the first post being an attempted Obama tie-in.
:rolls

Well maybe if you could tie Obama to things that actually made sense, I wouldn't have to guess. Hollande wanted that 75% tax on wealthy folks, which is way far to the left of most liberals in the US, and certainly much further to the left than President Obama. And nobody's having wet fantasies of high unemployment and a dissolved government. Also who wants to be unpopular? :confused
