Just saw Caterpillar CEO Doug Oberhelman being interviewed on TV. He told the interviewer that the solution to US economic problems is:
1) Leave politics at the door;
2) Stimulus spending on highways; and
3) Spending cuts to help balance the budget.
So, spending should be cut, except for spending that directly benefits his company, and anyone who doesn't agree is playing politics.
Mr. Oberhelman, you can't offer solutions to our political problems as you are our political problem.
