Too many sections[edit]

This article has too many sections. How will this article blend in many sections for Good Article or FA? --George Ho (talk) 14:08, 8 July 2012 (UTC)

Can we add a section to list all the lay-offs caused by the Obama economic policy ? Mk 70.193.197.183 (talk) 19:18, 9 November 2012 (UTC)

Obamanomics?[edit]

If the page on Reagan's policies is Reaganomics and Clinton's is Clintonomics (less common then Obamanomics) why isn't this page Obamanomics? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.78.13.133 (talk) 23:59, 5 January 2013 (UTC)

Obama socialist?[edit]

While I don't believe Obama is a socialist, this view seems to be popular in the US? Some clarification on this topic should be added. Stilgar27 (talk) 10:49, 25 July 2013 (UTC)

Intro[edit]

The first few sentences of this page read more like a sales pitch than a neutral analysis. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.55.4.208 (talk) 18:45, 10 November 2013 (UTC)

Where's the Hint of Minimum Wage Raise in the 2012 State of the Union Address?[edit]

The article reads (citation needed). I read the 2012 state of the union address https://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2012/01/24/remarks-president-state-union-address and saw no reference or "hint" to anything having to do with raising the minimum wage. I think this is a fabrication. 03:06, 3 May 2016 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Feniansword (talkcontribs)

Unsourced contradictions?[edit]

Is this right?

> Obama advocates using government regulation to stem crony capitalism, and tax revenue to stabilize and promote economic growth

That just doesn't make sense to me. Crony capitalism is a feedback loop of corruption caused by government intervention (e.g. regulation). Also how does "tax revenue" stabilize and promote economic growth? I'm not trying to argue politics, that just doesn't make sense to me, if anything shouldn't it be "gov't spending" to stabilize and promote growth? This is also unsourced. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 199.223.21.100 (talk) 20:11, 8 November 2016 (UTC)
