The Obama administration and the Democratic Party have actually passed considerable legislation. The GOP has refused to cooperate with them for most of the last two years earning the label, “The Party of No”. The Republicans did not contribute to any positive solution for our economic recovery, yet voters seem to be flocking towards them. What is driving voters to the GOP? Think about it.
It’s not a trick question. I can tell you; the answer is jobs. The unemployment situation has not improved. Record numbers of Americans are scratching out an existence below the poverty line. The people need jobs; millions of them.
Interest is lower than it has been in years and the banks are not lending. Easier credit might have stimulated job creation. The Democrats did nothing serious to prod the banks. Oh, they gave them some money, but bankers kept a tight hand on credit, unemployment kept rising. People became afraid to spend. When they don’t buy things, production stays low. Low production equals low employment. We need some positive action from our government to get things moving forward again.
Where are all of the incentives to create green energy? Where are the incentives to bring manufacturing jobs back to the United States? Where are the Fair Trade Initiatives?
The Obama Administration’s effort to lead US back to work has been dismal. Huge numbers of Americans are in need of jobs, they cry for help, they are losing their homes and their kids are hungry. They are the passengers on that train and they are going to roll over the Democratic Party in November.
Whoever wins seats in the upcoming Mid-Term Elections had better beware; “Put Americans back to work or you will be standing in the tunnel facing that same train in two years”.
