Barack Obama is the 44th and current President of the United States of America. He is the first African-American to lead this country and the first president born outside the continental United States. He's been in Office since January 20, 2009.

Today, The United States faces its most serious economic crisis since the great depression.

Working class and everyday-people saw their incomes decline by $2,000 in the economic "expansion" from 2000 to 2007, now even deeper income losses are on the horizon. Savings and Retirement accounts have lost $2 trillion dollars. Markets have gone down 40% in the last 12 months. Millions of homeowners who played by the rules can't make their mortgage payments and are confronted with the possibility of foreclosure, as home prices have plummeted. With credit markets nearly frozen, businesses large and small cannot access the credit they need to meet payroll and create jobs.

President Barack Obama and Vice-President Joe Biden, like any other politicians before them, have a plan to revitalize the economy. And they talk about job creation, relief for families, assistance for homeowners, and more legislation that will bring prosperity to the U.S. But reality is sometimes far from campaign promises, and there's always "reasons" why monetary policies are not working.
