With weekly jobless claims remaining above 500,000 for the last several weeks, it’s a constant reminder that the single greatest problem right now in our country is the lack of quality employment. The Obama Administration is doing everything they can to distract the American people from the real problem we face and it is time we confront the real issues we have and make it a priority to resolve those problems.
One example of this distraction is the Administration’s attempt to demonize Fox News and making the claims it’s not a news organization but rather an entity that is promoting a perspective. They are also putting forth an all out attack on businesses in the form of Cap & Trade legislation. These are just two examples of how the American people are being put to the side in an effort to further this Administration’s agenda.
What our President is not doing is addressing the calamity that is our job market. The sentiment among private employers is cautious, at best. They are not confident in what is going on or what is on the horizon for them and their companies. And because of this they are not hiring for positions they currently have open and for jobs that would help them expand. They are also cutting pay so they can lower overheard in order to buckle down and weather this storm in the hopes they will still be open a year from now.
If Americans were able to have good jobs I believe most of what we are seeing would correct itself. If Americans were able to provide for themselves and their families, I believe you would see most of the major economic indicators show that our economy was back on track and improving. As long as people have jobs, they can pay for services, products, and other items themselves. When people have jobs, there is money flowing through the economy and a whole host of problems are usually corrected and corrected faster than what government spending might try to do.
It’s all about jobs, Mr. President. If you are willing to do what you can to put Americans back to work at good paying jobs, many of our financial problems would correct themselves. And it would not cost the taxpayer a single dime.
It is time for common sense and free market economic principles to show their faces in Washington among the mass dementia that is institutionalized politics. As your next Representative, I will apply common sense and free market policies so we can get our economy back and put our country on a track to prosperity.
