” Hope and Change” was the campaign slogan Mr. Obama used during his 2008 tour of the US and eventually got him into the White House. Forward three years later and the country’s economy has changed for the worst- and hopefully next November, we will see a “change” in the White House.
On Wednesday Mr. Obama’s THIRD attempt at wasting Tax Payer money on what he calls a Jobs Bill, was fortunately shot down in the Senate . This president really thinks that by spending money “we ain’t got”, the government can create 2 Million new Jobs!
Mr. President, since when has any government created or earned anything? Are the MILLIONS of out of work Americans going to enlist in the Army,Navy, Air Force or Marines? Will they be hired to be 2 million extra Secret service agents, Border Patrol agents, Coast guard, Policemen and women, or Firemen? I don’t think so because we don’t enforce our immigration laws and protect the borders anyway, but that’s a different story!
I seriously hope that someone in your staff has informed you that all of the aforementioned jobs are paid for by (guess who) us! The U.S. TAX payer!!! And to think you have the nerve to ask us again for another 447 Billion? For what? to add to the 14 Trillion debt we already owe? I don’t even know how many zeros are in a trillion!
I remember the first “stimulus” flop. Mr. President, you and your house of Leftists (some, by the way, are very RICH and wealthy , don’t let their caring speeches fool you) passed through. You remember, Goldman Sach’s, Wells fargo, AIG and Bank of America all received the “bail out ” money. Now Bank of America is losing so much money that they are cutting, YES, cutting thousands of Jobs. Well that’s after they spent their free government cash on CEO bonuses and stock options, you know, insider trading (*coughs) stuff .
I remember the big Auto Makers excluding FORD took their Stimulus money real quick, without a thank you, and look at the Motor City( Detroit ,Michigan) today.Detroit has become America’s biggest ghetto. Empty Houses, Schools and yes FACTORIES. Yes, you know the ones that got Tax payer money to help get and retain union jobs! They are out of work too. I guess the union bosses forgot to mention that to all their dues paying employees at GM and Chrysler. The 130 Billion dollars they received went to their own personal bank accounts, but they did tell them that most of them were about to lose their jobs! Gotta love them Unions. Sorry Mo Town!
Free healthcare? Yeah that’ s working out just fine. Hospitals are being questioned about fraudulent billing practices just to make more money from Medicare. Here in the U.S. the factories that are making drugs are cutting back so now we have nation wide shortages of medications due in part to government regulations, taxes , and the raw materials needed to produce them. We have to rely on some ” grey market” pharmaceutical distributors that buy up drugs in bulk and then price gouge pharmacies and hospitals. Some drugs are near or past their expiration dates and have not been properly stored thus causing contamination and drug re-calls and in some cases, patient deaths.
This President and his administration has been delusional about throwing money at a problem would some how make the economy get back on track. The ONLY thing the government can do is stay the Hell out of private business, cut taxes on business, cut regulations and reduce spending.
Someone posted on FB the other day. ” 10 years ago , we had Bob Hope, Johnny Cash , and Steve Jobs. Today with this President, we have no JOBS, NO CASH and No HOPE”
Come on November 2012-
