Obamaâ€¦Wherefore Art Thou thy Jobs?
By: Dr. Phil Taverna
Obama is a funny president. Like Clinton he loves to hear his voice. And in the beginning people were fainting when they heard his voice. They may still be fainting but it is because of the Obama economy and not his voice.
He spoke for about 30 minutes about his jobs bill. Fortunately he didnâ€™t interfere with the first football game of the 2011 season. I guess he isnâ€™t that dumb.
But letâ€™s look at the speech and translate it for the people who still believe Obama is doing a favorable job.
â€œWe continue to face an economic crisis that has left millions of our neighbors jobless, and a political crisis that’s made things worseâ€
Translated means: Obama spent trillions of dollars and put us on the lamb for trillions more and his policies have been a complete failure. As far as politics go if there is a political crisis it is because the liberal Democrats are too stupid to cut spending.
Comments: Obama wants to blame the Tea Party SOBâ€™s because they wonâ€™t go for increase taxes and increase spending. Newt said during one of the debates that the government can not create real jobs. So in a nutshell Obama wants a mini stimulus that the country can not afford so he can feed the jobs that are already saved. There is absolutely nothing that will create real jobs in his plan.
But the most important question you must ask Obama and the other crooks, lets say we were stupid enough to follow Obamaâ€™s dumb ideas and pass this Obama Jobs Bill. Or we won the Chinese Lottery and had the money to pay for this fiasco!
How many real jobs will Obama create that we can count, not shovel ready or government jobs but real jobs? How many and when? And if those jobs are not created because they werenâ€™t created after the last stimulus at what number of jobs created will Obama be considered a complete failure? We need to know that up front!
If he creates a million new real jobs that is about $467,000 per job. By any standard thatâ€™s at least 4.5 federal government jobs per $467,000 dollars spent, but a real job will generate far less revenue for the worker then the Obama price tag. And the other problem is he doesnâ€™t plan to pay it back today, but in the next ten years. So he wants to spend $467 billion dollars at a time when we donâ€™t have it. The jobs will only last about a year (Maybe up to Election Day). And he wants to pay it back in 10 years.
And he calls this a political crisis! How about an ideological crisis of stupidity?
In all fairness it must be insanity. If you keep doing the same thing and the people expect a different result we are all insane.
In order to be kind here, this theology is not new. It has been the bible of politicians since Carter. â€œLetâ€™s do something or anything and if the economy improves everything will be ok. We can pay down the debt. If it doesnâ€™t improve, we can leave the mess for the next party that gets in!â€ And blame them for the mess.
Obama: â€œThe question is — the question is whether we can restore some of the fairness and security that has defined this nation since our beginning.â€
Comment: Not if Obama keeps adding to the debt. He keeps taxing everyone, lowering social security payments, sending our real jobs to China, our service jobs to India, and refuses to deport the illegal immigrants. And what if he keeps chasing businesses away because of uncertainty of unfair regulations, stupidity of Obamacare, and the threat of higher taxes!
Obama: â€œYou should pass this jobs plan right away.â€
Comment: Just like Obamacare. What a joke. Why would Obama want people who are working to be allowed to make more money? Translated that we will lower your taxes a few pennies so you will have more money to spend? Does anyone believe this garbage? After more than 4 years of this rhetoric I would hope not. Keep in mind he want to lower the amount that goes into the Social Security lock box.
Obama: â€œOur skies are the most congested in the world.â€
Comment: You have to be kidding. Obama wants you to believe that if we build a railroad system that we will have stations that are convenient and affordable; this is going to solve the jobs problem! He must be confused. Our skies are not congested. Itâ€™s the airports because of all the security and other time consuming regulations.
Obama: â€œEvery child deserves a great school — and we can give it to them, if we act now. â€œ
Comment: First we are going to build trains and then we are going to build great schools. We donâ€™t know much about Obamaâ€™s grades and schooling, but itâ€™s not the building that makes the school great. It is the teachers. If we were going to make all the schools in America great buildings, I donâ€™t think $467 billion is going to do it.
So letâ€™s work on making the schools we have now work better. Letâ€™s work on getting people who want to work a decent job with a decent salary. If you look at the great job that Obama did at GM: They have senior workers making twice as much as the workers doing the same job who are newly hired. That doesnâ€™t sound like a fair and good deal. I betcha the benefits arenâ€™t the same either?
35,000 schools are not the responsibility of the federal government. If the states canâ€™t afford their schools they shouldnâ€™t have them. Why should someone in Alaska pay to repair a school in Tennessee? The states should be repairing their own schools.
Translated: Obama wants to give federal money to the places that are in debt up to their eyeballs because they overspent for years. They were not fiscally responsible. Let them fix their own problem. If they stopped sending money to Washington, they would have enough money to fix their own problems. Obama has to realize just like Clintonâ€™s million man police program, it was only temporary. So what are the workers going to do when they finishing fixing 35,000 schools? Go on Welfare?
Obama: â€œPass this jobs bill, and thousands of teachers in every state will go back to work.â€
Comment: And these clowns thought President Bush was stupid! First off teachers are government jobs. We need real jobs. If they are not working now, that may mean the schools didnâ€™t need them in the first place. So letâ€™s find them a real job. Or let them compete against the public school system with private education. Good luck with that one!
Obama: â€œI’ll also offer ideas to reform a corporate tax code that stands as a monument to special interest influence in Washingtonâ€¦It should give an advantage to companies that invest and create jobs right here in the United States of America.â€
Comment: The tax code is fine. Itâ€™s the Whitehouse and the politicians that offer special concessions and waivers to their friends. The only way to gain an advantage for companies to create jobs in America is cut taxes, regulations and creates an environment that will allow Americans to compete for the jobs that were stolen by politicians, China and Mexico. Also get rid of presidential advisors like GEâ€™s Immelt who keeps making billions while he ships American Jobs to China.
â€œSo if you love Obama pass the jobs bill.â€ If you really love Obama set him free next November. And just maybe he wonâ€™t come back.
What liberals like Obama must be taught are that real jobs feed and pay for the rest of the government spending. This includes paying for teachers, work on schools and trains and so on. It will never work the other way. Pouring more money into government jobs will not help the economy. It is like filling a bucket with sand when the bucket has a large hole in it.
So if Obama really wants to stimulate the economy, forget about politics like giving money to folks like unions so he can get re-elected. Obama will never get re-elected unless Obama gets out of the way and takes his Obamacare with him.
