Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Is this a step in the total wrong direction? Anyone that has ever been caught in the borrower trap knows how hard it is to ever break that cycle. This will make it even worse to pull out of a debt. These companies have already been operating like bandits and vampires or mafia Godfathers.

Pressure on Obama to Quickly Resolve Centuries-Old Sunni-Shiite Conflict - The New Yorker | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Congressional leaders left the White House on Wednesday “deeply frustrated” that President Obama had not found a swift resolution to the conflict between Sunnis and Shiites that began in the seventh century A.D. After meeting for more than an hour with the President in the Oval Office, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell expressed disappointment that Mr. Obama “came up empty” when asked for a plan to heal the rift between the two religious groups, which began in the year 632.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Speaking of people that seem to think Obama is a Savior .....it doesn't get better than this.....

Excerpt:After meeting for more than an hour with the President in the Oval Office, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell expressed disappointment that Mr. Obama “came up empty” when asked for a plan to heal the rift between the two religious groups, which began in the year 632.

“All we ask of this President is that he do one thing: settle a religious conflict that has been going on for a millennium and a half,” McConnell said. “What did he offer today? Nothing.”
