From the over 3,500 comments posted to our most recent discussion on the economy, two overarching themes stood out.

Like our healthcare discussion, the outpouring of comments, stories, suggestions, and ideas has shown the hunger for change that will help Americans navigate these troubled economic times.

We've given our economic team the opportunity to read and digest all of your comments, and we're offering that opportunity to the whole community.
