Twice now, including just minutes ago I’ve heard Barack Obama say that one of the ways we can get Americans back to work is to hire our returning Military, who have the experience and skills to do the jobs many need doing. Now, I’m all for that. I champion all employers looking to former Soldiers, Sailors and Marines to fill positions needing to be filled but, tell me how doing so CREATES a job? It fills a job, but it doesn’t CREATE a job.
Returning Military are one part of all those needing employment. Hiring them first does not change the dynamics of our obscene unemployment. While we have plenty of unemployed, we do not have plentiful jobs. Hiring isn’t the problem. Job CREATION is the problem.
It’s just more pretty, petty, meaningless words from the Spinner in Chief.
If Obama is asking employers to put former Military at the head of the employment line, that’s all well and good, but it doesn’t change the number of jobs available. One person, one job doesn’t change anything if we cannot add more jobs. We need legitimate jobs and thanks to Obama’s job-killing regulations costing business owners $1.75 Trillion, they cannot expand or hire. Dittos ObamaCare regulations costing $2.6 Trillion. All money that could go to expanding business and hiring. There are NO JOBS for former Military or anyone else.
Obama wants to build roads and bridges, but the only way we can do that is if taxpayers pay for those roads and bridges now, with higher taxes, designed to pay for yet another Stimulus check.
Today Obama told a story, as he always does. Today’s went something like this:
Now I don’t know about your household, but in mine, if I said to Michelle, honey, our income is down a bit and so we can’t buy anymore shoes, and we can’t buy anymore dresses (but I’m going to keep my golf clubs), it wouldn’t go over well.
When you think about Barack Obama, realize that the man has never produced anything but hot air, regulations, abortions and materials for urban Black school children designed to keep them hot and bothered over racial issues. Those school materials were paid for by the Annenberg Foundation, (Annenberg, a White man) – Obama went through over $100 Million of Annenberg money, and matching funds and accomplished exactly nothing – and his partner was one time FBI long-time “Most Wanted,” William ‘Bill’ Ayers.
That’s it. He has NEVER added a single thing to America’s wealth or well-being. He has only taken from it, helped others take from it, and walked away. He has NEVER CREATED a single job without robbing taxpayers to pay for it. We must create an atmosphere for America’s job creators to do what they do best, create and produce. Telling us to “hire” someone is ridiculous.
“Remember when Obama was trying to make combat-disabled vets pay for their own medical treatments, including prosthetic limbs?
When vet organizations protested, Obama demanded that they figure out a way to save an equivalent amount of money. That’s Obama’s idea of economizing.”
WASHINGTON (CNN) — Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki confirmed Tuesday that the Obama administration is considering a controversial plan to make veterans pay for treatment of service-related injuries with private insurance.
But the proposal would be “dead on arrival” if it’s sent to Congress, Sen. Patty Murray, D-Washington, said.
Murray used that blunt terminology when she told Shinseki that the idea would not be acceptable and would be rejected if formally proposed. Her remarks came during a hearing before the Senate Committee on Veterans Affairs about the 2010 budget.
No official proposal to create such a program has been announced publicly, but veterans groups wrote a pre-emptive letter last week to President Obama voicing their opposition to the idea after hearing the plan was under consideration.
