    Pressure from Washington has been badly needed. Has Obama done something right?

    The past and current administrations have gone at China on this issue with no progress. It makes it tough since we borrow so much money from them each year. We need to stop this spending spree that started under Bush and has been put on steriods under Barry.

    Sorry, I just can't buy that BS....the housing market is in a deep gorge! Work in the Pittsburgh market as far as new construction is pretty bad. Very little new houses, mostly remodel work.
