We know the stimulus bill has not created the millions of jobs that Obama and Company claimed it would. In fact, at his press conference earlier this week, Obama conceded that unemployment is going to reach 10% – and soon.
Now they are touting Cap and Trade as a jobs bill. Obama started this new tact earlier in the week and Nancy Pelosi continued the meme with her shrill scream of “JOBS JOBS JOBS JOBS” on the House floor last night. Calling this a jobs bill is a blatant lie.
As unemployment continues to rise and the deficit continues to explode, Americans are becoming skeptical and Republicans need to be all over this like white on rice. It looks like they are formulating a plan that includes shining the light on this.
Hot Air has a link to the GOP’s weekly address…starring the George Hamilton of Congress. That’s not a dig against Congressman Boehner. I’m a tad jealous of that tan andI will always hold him dear to my heart after he threw a copy of the stimulus bill to the House floor in disgust.
10% unemployment, and soon, huh?
Well is this the short term pain we were told to expect, or is there more pain coming?
At least Clinton said he “felt our pain”.
This one has no feelings.
Obama is going to be a combo of the worst of both Nixon and Carter without Nixon’s good points (of which he had many, believe it or not). Obama is paranoid, vindictive, incompetent, and naive with strong authoritarian instincts.
It was never a bill designed to create jobs. It was a bill to expand government spending under the false guise of job creation.
When the Stimulus was passed, we were told that it had to be done or Unemployment would reach 8%.
So… in hindsight… we should have done nothing and let that 8% happen.
Pity that we didn’t spend time discussing the Stimulus bill. . .
But then, that was the plan.
Congress… Listen up:
Don’t Tread On Me.
