The latest from the president on the job front came on Tuesday as to the shock of the nation, Obama claimed to have a job plan that he would be unveiling in September. However, before he bothers with us little folk and our annoying little hunger and poverty issues, he’s off to Martha’s Vineyard for another well-earned vacation.
I’ve heard and read a lot of complaints over Obama’s decision to wait to roll out his master jobs plan however; I’m not among the disappointed. I get that the nation is hurting and needs help now but as I’m quite sure the president’s plan will do little to affect job creation, I can wait. The fact is, I would be much happier as I’m sure Obama would, if he were to wait until NEXT September to roll out his jobs plan. He’d be happier because everyone knows he’s gonna need all the help he can get to look competent and constructive going into the election, I’d be happier because I pay attention and therefore know what to expect of this big secret plan.
Obama’s approach to government is one that considers government to be an essential force in every aspect of the lives of the governed. Obama has no time or concern for the free market principles that have push the United States into a position of leading the free world. That’s exactly why we’ve heard over and over his countless unfulfilled promises to create jobs that have resulted in nothing more than increased national debt.
The president on one hand talks a good game on creating jobs while the paralyzing regulatory atmosphere his policies have created has all but ensured continued economic stagnancy. Herein lies the problem. It’s not the responsibility of the federal government to employ the American people. It is however the responsibility of a competent leader to ensure his actions are not counter-productive to an economy starving for some relief.
Obama’s focus should be on creating a business friendly atmosphere in America. Rather than the same old calls to tax the rich, spend trillions more in stimulus and a pseudo nationalist concept of creating short term construction jobs, the president should take a look at his administration’s 30 year record federal regulation in FY2010 and the obvious dismal effects.
Please get out of the “job creation” business Obama. You have no prior experience doing so, job creation IS NOT the responsibility of federal government and it should be clear to you by now that your approach is only making things worse.
Obama could send IRS thugs to the home of each and every millionaire in American to take all they have and he’d still not foster an environment where increased private profits are reinvested in growth. American business is holding on to all it currently has because we know this administration’s intent is to find a way to take it.
