Obama says he wants to build the economy from the bottom up. Actually, that’s the way most of our government is supposed to work — with states and localities having the most authority, but for those areas enumerated to the federal government. Obama obviously rejects that. As for building the economy from the bottom up, Obama isn’t going to build anything — not from the bottom up or any other way. His massive spending, tax and regulatory proposals will drag the economy down – bottom, middle and top.
