Pelosi's Small Amount of Money

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi spoke of last chance aid for America's auto manufacturers. She termed the $15 billion as a "small amount of money." Really, Mrs. Pelosi?

That sum is nearly half of hospital uncompensated care, $31 billion at last check. For two years, Nancy didn't budget a small amount of money to help struggling Americans or financially strapped safety net providers.

America has a crisis of leadership, and it's far worse than the credit crunch. Board rooms, executive suites and both political parties are infected with hypercompetition, greed, and addiction to extrinsic motivators. Profound knowledge is needed in our profoundly suboptimal times.
