    It is more important than ever that we work otgether not only to restore economic growth in Mexico and the United States, but also to make sure that growth is sustainable .If you want real growth, it can only come from the free market. More debt and spending does not mean growth, even if the current year's GDP number goes up! Growth can only come from savings, which Americans do at a negative rate. This is continuing the fiscal insanity I had to endure during the Bush years. Real change would be less government spending. How is he going to build gorwth with bailouts, government run banks, $15 to $20 trillion in total debt, and a $3tillion budget? If anyone can answer this, please do ..
