County?s current path not sustainable
By the time I was 25, I had a job, a wife, two kids, two cars, a house and a dog.
I can’t recall anyone I knew who didn’t have a job and was not paying taxes to Uncle Sam. Everyone worked.
Now, only about half the people of working age have jobs.
Half of Americans pay no federal income tax. One-fourth of the kids graduating college can’t find a job.
Social Security Disability is a growth industry.
This is not sustainable.
America is headed for ruin. Progressives are putting people on Food Stamps.
Our present administration thinks it has the problem in hand by passing a law to force all health insurance companies to carry kids on the insurance of their parents until age 26, so they can continue to live in their mother’s spare room and dream of having self respect.
Meanwhile, Obama tells the EPA to shut down 40 percent of our electric production by shutting down all coal powered electric plants.
This will end thousands of jobs.
Obamacare will kill millions of jobs. Many will have hours cut to part time due to Obamacare.
We have 7.6 percent unemployment. AP reports 1.5 million college gradutes are jobless or underemployed (waiting tables, etc.)
Obama’s answer to this is to give work permits to 11 million illegal aliens. The government estimates this will raise unemployment and supress wages for a decade.
We don’t need more unskilled workers. Our education system produces plenty.
The Amnesty Bill coming out of the U.S. Senate is a national suicide pact. It will cause another wave of illegal immigration and unemployment.
