Where Will The Jobs Come From?

7 09 2009

The Heritage Foundation has a great graph about Obama’s promise to haveĀ 3.5 million new jobs by 2010. He has already lost 2.8 million jobs since taking office, and the national unemployment went from 7.6% in January to 9.4% in August. As this graph shows – he’s going the wrong way. And 2010 is four months away.

Cut Jobs to Save Money; Spend Money To Add Jobs

29 07 2009

So in the merry-go-round of Obamaeconomics, he’s gone into debt to stimulate our economy to add jobs. With a $2 trillion deficit, his centerpiece has been the need to create more jobs.

So then he asks his cabinet to cut $100 million from their budgets – you know – to show how they can save money while he spends money we don’t have.

They have responded with $102 million in proposed cuts.

One of the cuts is from the Department of Labor – who is proposing to disband the Employment Standards Administration – eliminating an assistant secretary of the departmentĀ and 2 department secretaries – a savings of $1.75 million.

You would think when you are trying to get everyone to believe you are adding jobs, you might want to keep around a “Employment Standards Administration” department – whatever that is – and NOT contribute to the layoff rate by cutting jobs in that “Employment” department at your very own Department of Labor.

They are cutting jobs to save money…while Obama is spending money to add jobs.





Apply fast! Only 38 jobs open!

On the U.S. Government’s official website USA Jobs you can do a search for jobs that have been created with stimulus money. I did a search for any job anywhere in the U.S. and got 38 responses – many of them noted as “temporary” jobs.

Now that is my $787 billion being spent well!

And today on Meet the Press, Vice President Biden said the stimulus is not going to create or save 3.5 million jobs as they initially thought but it will create or save 600,000 by the end of summer.

REPEATABLE: It is mid June. 38 jobs posted. And only 599,962 jobs to create or save by the end of summer.
