Asked by host Jon Scott about who is to blame for the historic downgrade of the nation’s credit rating, Project 21 fellow Deneen says the “blame game” needs to stop and Obama needs to step up and lead. Ways to jump-start the economy Deneen suggests include making taxes less burdensome, curtailing rampant spending and making regulations more sensible and less onerous.

Joining Deneen in this discussion on the 8/9/11 edition of “Happening Now” on the Fox News Channel is New York Post columnist Kirsten Powers. The Project 21 black leadership network is a program of The National Center for Public Policy Research.Asked by host Jon Scott about who is to blame for the historic downgrade of the nation’s credit rating, Project 21 fellow Deneen says the “blame game” needs to stop and Obama needs to step up and lead.
