It really is not in the interest of the Democrat party to end this recession. They will use the crisis to pass spending bills (Partisan Pork) that they couldn't pass in normal times. They will be utterly shameless in destroying the economy to enslave the US Poplulation to their rule for as long as they can.
Too bad more people do not remember the Jimmy Carter Administration so clearly. Do they remember the Clinton Tax hikes that formented the 1994 repudiation of Democrat (mis)rule.
