To some the recession isn't serious, although the stock market number in numerous companies are going down everyday. It's always the things that aren't of great importance that hit hard unexpectedly. Thats why I feel it is important to fix this economic crisis before it gets much worse. An example in history where importance was not placed upon was the economic crisis in the 1920's, which is why the Great Depression occurred. Another example was with Hitler where he was looked at as merely a dictator, and became to be the reason for the holocaust and World War 2. In conclusion I think the recession should remain a top priority to the U.S. until it is successfully handled.
