Now as we begin to put an end to this recession, we have to consider what comes next — because we can’t afford to return to an economy based on inflated profits and maxed out credit cards; an economy where we depend on dirty and outdated sources of energy; an economy where we’re burdened by soaring health care costs that serve only the special interests. This won’t create sustainable growth, it won’t shrink our deficit, and it won’t create jobs.
BARACK OBAMA, speech, Aug. 7, 2009
“And neither will the over-regulated wasteland I replace that old economy with. MUAHAHAHA!”
