The economic policy has always been a key subject inside the Democratic Party. It is almost seen as a contest between the President Barack Obama and the anti-Wall Street-arians, who are highly advised and organized by Senator Elisabeth Warren from Massachusetts.
The attention Hillary Rodham Clinton is receiving is because of her intentions to run for presidency in 2016. Her potential rivals, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, 2008 Republican nominee Mitt Romney and Kentucky Senator Rand Paul meet her silence while anchoring themselves in a debate about economics in America.
The Center for American Progress and a group of Clinton advisers present the economic agenda of Mrs. Clinton if she were to be chosen as President. Her goals are to help raise wages for workers and dissolve the economical differences between the rich and the poor. The same Center has related Tuesday, in a less violent approach, that in other countries, this situation has been handled differently, with a much more positive attitude and vision, putting aside all the misunderstandings and questions related, for example, to the costs of all the initiatives that these people want to take. The report says that democracy does no longer have the capacity of solving its own problems and create in time some sort of dynamic in the society.
Larry Summers, who worked for Obama himself and also is one of the authors of the agenda, presented his opinion about the issue.
“While there are massive forces, globalization, technology and a lot more, that are building substantial challenges for quite a few workers, there is no excuse or intellectual basis for fatalism.”
There is some proof found in the social networking field (Twitter), that states where Hilary Clinton situates herself at the moment, as the ideas have been stated this Friday:
“Attacking economic reform is risky and incorrect. Better for Congress to concentrate on jobs and wages for middle-class households.”
Furthermore, in the fall, when she ruled her campaign for Democrats, she spoke many times about the return to sharing prosperity in such an organized way that will serve the economics all across the country.
On the other hand, Barack Obama, the actual President of the US has also presented his goals in the field, proposing that eliminating a tax break on inheritances and raising the capital gains rate on the rich citizens.
Elisabeth Warren is the one who believes that the middle class is in great difficulty at the moment and that a clear, definite decision has to be taken right away. Clinton’s response to Warren is sensitive, as long as she is trying to identify Mrs. Hillary to Wall Street. She is only a mediator between the lower class and the Wall Street and politicians assume that this will be her highest priority and challenge.
