In the Oct. 20 letters, we read “Republicans don’t care abut jobs . . . the deficit, this country, etc.” I’d foresee a bleak future for any ninth grader who would take these statements seriously. They are as serious as President Obama’s last stimulus (jobs) bill.
Obama knew his jobs bill would never get through Congress. He couldn’t even get the votes of all the Democrats in the Senate, so it never made it to the House. He proposed his “jobs” bill so he could have an excuse to go on the campaign trail in the million dollar Canadian-made bus we bought for him. He has one skill, campaigning, and he intends to do it at our expense for the next year.
If Obama wanted to create jobs, he would go along with Republican proposals to put a halt to the 450 job-killing regulations coming out of his administration. He could fast track all the permits to drill for oil and gas he is sitting on. These would cost the government nothing and would create hundreds of thousands of jobs quickly. What Obama has done is waste billions on green jobs that move to China. He is working to close down our coal fired electric plants, forcing “rates to skyrocket” and moving more manufacturing jobs offshore. Obama is a job killer.
As for the question “Who really needs or earns more than $1 million?” Ask a Packer or Brewer about excellence and incentive. How about the person who risks millions of dollars to start a company and create jobs? Why is anyone going to create and work and risk big money if the payoff is confiscated by a socialistic government? Even the Castros of Cuba have recognized that doesn’t work.
